Mrs. Bill Clinton will give blonds a bad name.
She actually said the reason for so many casualties was because "Hamas puts its missiles, its rockets in civilian areas; part of it is because Gaza is pretty small and it’s densely populated.” She also said "They put their command and control of Hamas military leaders in those civilian areas..."
No there does Mrs. Bill Clinton mention that Hamas has in its charter "Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it" (The Martyr, Imam Hassan al-Banna, of blessed memory).
But she is showing her ignorance of the laws of war and that combatants are not to use civilians as shields for their armed forces. And she is a Ivy League trained attorney.
Prehaps Mrs. Clinton should realize this will go on until the PLO is defeated by Israel. As an aside, Mrs Clinton, will you demand that their is an accounting of the billions in aid given to the Palestians over the decsdes but for some reason they still live in tents. And the PLO leadership lives in mansions.
Maybe Mrs. Clinton you should remember this statement from a brave woman who is something you will never be. A leader.
“We can forgive the Arabs for killing our children. We cannot forgive them for forcing us to kill their children. We will only have peace with the Arabs when they love their children more than they hate us.”
God, where is today's Halberstam writing about the latest version of The Best and the Brightest!
