Is Hillary Kidding?


She told AIPAC yesterday: “When a Hamas-controlled municipality glorifies violence and renames a square after a terrorist who murdered innocent Israelis, it insults the families on both sides who have lost loves ones over the years in this conflict.”

This after saying other dumb things about settlements in Jerusalem being intolerable. But what is she talking about regarding “Hamas-controlled municipalities glorifying violence”? The square-naming and celebration of terrorist Dalal Mughrabi (who also killed an American woman) was a West Bank/Fatah affair, not a Gaza/Hamas affair. And, may we remind, it is the West Bank the administration wants to move Israelis out of in deference to those they see as moderates, i.e., Mahmoud Abbas and his (wait for it) Fatah organization.

Either Hillary Clinton knew this and deliberately set up a straw man of Hamas (as if Hamas needs it), or she did not know this, in which case things are even worse than we thought. And they’re pretty bad.
