Hillary Clinton Slams Palestinian 'Child Abuse'

Staff Writer
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) called for a "bright spotlight" on anti-Semitic messages and calls to martyrdom directed at Palestinian children that "create a new generation of terrorists" in her address to the AIPAC policy conference Tuesday in Washington. Describing a hearing with a representative of the Palestinian Authority, Clinton said she told him, "Using children as pawns in a political process is tantamount to child abuse, and we must say it has to end now."

Clinton, Dole Join Forces For Magen David

Staff Writer
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) has gained an important ally in her efforts on behalf of Israel's Magen David Adom. Sen. Elizabeth Dole (R-N.C.), whose husband challenged Clintonís husband for president, signed onto Clintonís amendment to force the acceptance of MDA into the International Committee of the Red Cross. Dole was formerly director of the American Red Cross. Her husband, Sen. Bob Dole, lost the 1996 presidential race to Bill Clinton.

More Hurdles For Hillary

Staff Writer
Hillary Rodham Clinton's new link to a Hamas supporter threatens to rock the first lady's Senate campaign at a time when Clinton can least afford another controversy, and as Jewish voters are more focused then ever on Israel's security. Reports of a campaign fund-raiser for Clinton by the American Muslim Alliance, whose leader backs armed struggle against Israel, could upset the momentum she was seen as gathering among Jews. Her campaign had been hoping for a quiet two weeks until the Nov. 7 face-off with Republican Rick Lazio.

Hillary's New Comfort Zone

Staff Writer
It was barely noticed, but Hillary Rodham Clinton took a significant step, albeit a clumsy one, while campaigning in Queens last week. Addressing a group of elderly Holocaust survivors, the first lady and Senate candidate noted that her friend and supporter, Rep. Tom Lantos of California, was always "kavelling" about his grandchildren. With a little coaching, Clinton might have properly pronounced the Yiddish word for boasting (kvelling). But the utterance was still a milestone in Clinton's long and tumultuous courtship with Jewish voters.

Joe Stamps Hillary 'Kosher'

Staff Writer
During their first campaign appearance together Friday, Sen. Joseph Lieberman's endorsement of Hillary Rodham Clinton had all the subtlety of a soft-money campaign commercial. In Coney Island, Brooklyn, last week the two praised each other's records, shared grade school memories and (despite the fact that they were traveling in the same vehicle) publicly hugged and kissed hello and goodbye in front of the cameras.

Hillary Seeks New Jewish Liaisons

Staff Writer
Wanted: Politically astute and respected Jewish activists, able to spend long hours on a Democratic Senate campaign. Contacts in diverse segments of community, from Williamsburg to the West Side, essential. Access to wealthy donors a plus. In a bid to bolster her support and widen her political base in the Jewish community after a disastrous week, Hillary Rodham Clinton's Senate campaign is shopping for new advisers.

Managing Hillary's Latest Crisis

Staff Writer
Hillary Rodham Clinton's Senate campaign was in full-blown crisis mode this week, rounding up Jewish leaders, organizations and politicians to denounce a report that the first lady called a former aide to her husband a "f---g Jewish bastard" in 1974.

Up Close And Personal

Staff Writer
Upon entering the Loew's Hotel ballroom in Manhattan last week, some guests at the breakfast of the Metropolitan New York Coordinating Council on Jewish Poverty were annoyed that an area surrounding the podium had been roped off, resulting in some tables being moved to the back of the room. The accommodation was made out of security concerns for Hillary Rodham Clinton, a surprise addition to the list of high profile political figures that annually flock to the event.

Hillary: No Aid Linkage On Israel-China Deal

Staff Writer
The United States must not use foreign aid as leverage against Israel to thwart an arms deal with China, Hillary Rodham Clinton told The Jewish Week in a wide-ranging interview last week. "I don't think this should be a political football in the foreign aid debate," the first lady said in an hourlong meeting with editors and staff at the paper's Manhattan offices. "We have to take the attitude that we need to be using quiet diplomacy and use whatever intelligence we have available to persuade Israel of our position."
