Hillary Clinton

Bernie

Don’t look for Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont), the only Jewish presidential candidate in the 2016 sweepstakes and only one who actually lived in Israel, to join the panderfest of candidates trying to out-Israel each other.  I doubt he’ll even make a photo-op pilgrimage to the Holy Land as so many, especially Republicans, are.

Washington, D.C. — Hillary Clinton does not appear until 90 seconds into the two-minute video rolling out her campaign. No one among the bright and diverse array of everyday Americans in that video mentions foreign policy. Or Barack Obama.

Will American Jews soon be shlepping for Hillary?

The recent launch of a political action committee supporting a presidential run by Hillary Rodham Clinton makes one wonder if in 2016 Sarah Silverman will be urging millennials to hit up bubbe and zeyde again in a repeat effort to make sure Florida votes blue.

Ron Lauder, president of the World Jewish Congress (WJC), called upon Hillary Clinton to present the organization’s second annual Theodor Herzl Award to Marion and Elie Wiesel last month at the Waldorf-Astoria.

“We have come to know Hillary Clinton as our former First Lady, former United States Senator, and former Secretary of State and our future…”

Lauder didn’t have to finish.

Clinton recalled a lecture Wiesel gave at the White House on the eve of a new millennium. “He emphasized that indifference is more dangerous than anger and hatred,” she said.

Is Mideast Peace Possible?

Special To The Jewish Week

 The announcement of President Obama's forthcoming visit to Israel and the Palestine Authority in March presents an opportunity to review the status of the Peace Process between Israel and the P.A.  Right now the peace process is in a state of repose.  Both sides say they seek renewal of negotiations, but only Israel has offered to negotiate face to face on all issues without preconditions.

Hillary Clinton, In Jerusalem, Says Israel Lacks Empathy For Palestinians

12/03/2012 - 19:00

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Nov. 30 accused Israel of being suspicious of Palestinians and showing a “lack of generosity” and “lack of empathy” to them, saying there is “more that the Israelis need to do to really demonstrate that they do understand the pain of an oppressed people in their minds.”

“I’m not making excuses for the missed opportunities of the Israelis, or the lack of generosity, the lack of empathy that I think goes hand-in-hand with the suspicion,” Clinton said at the Saban Center for Middle East Policy in Washington, DC.
