Awaiting Hillary’s ‘robust’ condemnation of offensive cartoon


A Guest Post by AKUS

cartoonI am an admirer of both Hillary and Bill Clinton, and not only because both have been supportive of the American Jewish community and Israel. 

Bill Clinton worked tirelessly trying to bring a peaceful resolution to the Israel-Palestinian conflict. Hilary Clinton may go down as one of the most successful and influential Secretaries of State the US has known and has also worked hard – and as fruitlessly – to try to bring some closure to that conflict. Their daughter is married to a Jewish man, son of friends of theirs.

But this week, they and the branch of the US administration that Hillary heads have failed the Jewish community in the UK, and, indeed, around the world.

When some Muslims rioted across the world following the 2005 publication (in the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten) of Mohammed cartoons, Bill Clinton was swift to respond, and absurdly compared cartoons depicting Mohammed to deadly anti-Semitic cartoons depicting Jews:

[Former President Bill] Clinton: “Totally Outrageous Cartoons Against Islam”

DOHA (AFP) – Former US president Bill Clinton warned of rising anti-Islamic prejudice, comparing it to historic anti-Semitism as he condemned the publishing of cartoons depicting Prophet Mohammed in a Danish newspaper.

“So now what are we going to do? … Replace the anti-Semitic prejudice with anti-Islamic prejudice?” he said at an economic conference in the Qatari capital of Doha.

“In Europe, most of the struggles we’ve had in the past 50 years have been to fight prejudices against Jews, to fight against anti-Semitism,” he said.

Clinton described as “appalling” the 12 cartoons published in a Danish newspaper in September depicting Prophet Mohammed and causing uproar in the Muslim world.

“None of us are totally free of stereotypes about people of different races, different ethnic groups, and different religions … there was this appalling example in northern Europe, in Denmark … these totally outrageous cartoons against Islam,” he said.

The (George W. Bush-era) State Department also weighed in on the Europeans’ cartoon controversy. It too hastened to reference anti-Semitism and claimed equivalence with the horrendously anti-Semitic cartoons that appear daily in Arab media:

Bush Administration on 2006 Danish Cartoons: “We Certainly Understand Why Muslims Would Find These Images Offensive”

The Muslim world erupted in anger on Friday over caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad published in Europe while the Bush administration offered the protesters support, saying of the cartoons, ”We find them offensive, and we certainly understand why Muslims would find these images offensive.”

… The State Department spokesman, Sean McCormack, reading the government’s statement on the controversy, said, ”Anti-Muslim images are as unacceptable as anti-Semitic images,” which are routinely published in the Arab press, ”as anti-Christian images, or any other religious belief.”

Still, the United States defended the right of the Danish and French newspapers to publish the cartoons. ”We vigorously defend the right of individuals to express points of view,” Mr. McCormack added.

When some Muslims rioted over a film made by an Egyptian born Copt living in America that mocked Islam, Hillary Clinton showed understanding for their anger:

HILLARY CLINTON: Anti-Muslim Film Is ‘Disgusting And Reprehensible’

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Thursday called the film that helped provoke protestors to riot “disgusting and reprehensible.”

“Let me state very clearly — and I hope it is obvious — The United States government had nothing to do with this video. We absolutely reject its content and message,” Clinton said in a statement at a State Department.

Clinton said that the video’s intended purpose seemed to be inciting violence.

So now I ask – where is the condemnation from either Bill or Hillary Clinton or the US State Department that Hillary heads over the rabidly anti-Semitic cartoon that appeared in the UK’s Sunday Times on no other day than Holocaust Memorial Day?

Even if we agree that the concept of freedom of speech means that Scarfe can create and the Sunday Times publish anti-Semitism, why has Bill not found time to say something like this?

“None of us are totally free of stereotypes about people of different races, different ethnic groups, and different religions … there was this appalling example in Europe, in Great Britain … this totally outrageous cartoon directed at the Jewish people.”

Why hasn’t the State Department’s issued a statement with criticism such as this?

”We find the Sunday Times cartoon offensive, and we certainly understand why Jews would find these images offensive … anti-Semitic images are unacceptable.”

Why has Hillary not found the time to “absolutely reject” Scarfe’s cartoon as “disgusting and reprehensible … with the intent of inciting violence”?

Hillary – if it takes a village to raise a child properly, what does it take in our global village to get your attention to the increasing anti-Semitism that has become such a staple of European media and as weighty a condemnation of this “typically robust cartoon” by Gerald Scarfe” as Bill, you, and the State Department have found for other cartoons and a poorly made and initially widely ignored film promo?

  1. Honestly what do you expect..?
    To condemn this cartoon would cause offense to the Muslim radicals Hilary and Obama made a mission to appease.

    • This has to be one of the most grotesque posts ever.

      Hilary Clinton is…an American politician.

      The Sunday Times is… a British newspaper.

      CIF Watch’s inability to realize that the Sunday Post is British, not American, is disturbing.

      • “CIF Watch’s inability to realize that the Sunday Post is British, not American, is disturbing”

        Dear ‘Nat’ your inability to realize that the subject of this thread is The Sunday Times and NOT The Sunday Post demonstrates your usual level of knowledge, and the truth of the saying ignorance can be cured but stupid is forever.

        Run along now, your organ grinder will not be happy with his monkey making such basic errors.

        • Gerald, the subject of Akus’ post is a cartoon in the UK’s Sunday Times.

          Hilary Clinton is an American politician.

          I suggest you buy a pair of glasses and use them to read the press.

          • Dear ‘Nat’ before you give advice about eyesight you should read your own post and the quote I used from it which was;

            “CIF Watch’s inability to realize that the Sunday Post is British, not American, is disturbing.”

            I am well aware that AKUS post is about the cartoon in The Sunday TIMES, but, you are the one who refers to The Sunday POST.

            Clearly your organ grinder needs to get a new monkey as you are not earning your keep.

            • Perhaps “Nat” could also discover that neither Bill Clinton nor George W. Bush were ever leaders of Denmark.

            • Awaiting Hillary’s ‘robust’ condemnation of forced contraception of Ethiopian Jewish women in Israel?

      • Awaiting Adam Levick’s robust’ condemnation of forced contraception of Jewish Ethopian women in Israel.

        • Awaiting ‘Nat’ to admit his error above in writing about the Sunday Post when the thread is about the Sunday Times.
          And awaiting ‘Nat’ to admit his gross ignorance below in denying the fact that Rupert Murdoch is an American citizen.

          • Awaiting Adam Levick’s robust’ condemnation of settler violence against Palestinian civilians in the West Bank.

            • Awaiting Adam Levick’s robust’ condemnation of Im Tirzu’s antisemitic cartoons depicting NIF’s Naomi Chazan with a horn sprouting from her forehead.

              • I’d like to understand how Mr Levick picks the issues he writes about. Scarfe’s cartoon is one, but why not also write about how some Ethiopian women report being forced to accept contraceptive shots? This issue was covered by most Israeli newspapers, some validating the story, some not.

                Why only cover issues related to the Palestine conflict? There are many things in Israel which are not related to the conflict.

                • Which also have nothing to do with you, since you’re a paid Dutch troll!
                  What I’d like to find out is who in the Netherlands would hire people to harass Israeli-oriented blogs?
                  So, who coughs up your pay-check every month?
                  We’re quite anxious to know.
                  Oh, and stop trolling on MONTH-old threads, you ninny… People can easily espy what you’re trying to do.

  2. Your problem is that neither Scarfe nor the cartoon are anti-Semitic. They are in the great British tradition of political satire. Every day the Guardian publishes cartoons of David Cameron with a condom over his head. Political cartoons published in Britain in the 19th century were vicious in the extreme but were never censored. Just get used to it. If Murdoch pulls Scarfe from the Sunday Times he will be published elsewhere and wiil satirise Netanyahu or Assad in equal measure. Both have blood on their hands and deserve it.

    • The British press does not, as far as I have seen publish pictures of their Prime Minister crushing bleeding Irish to death by building a “Peace Wall” (funny how that one is for peace, right?) in Belfast.

      • I don’t think the British are bombing Catholic areas with F16s, they’re not building Protestant only settlements, they’ve recognised an Irish state for decades (comprising the majority of Ireland whereas Bibi is debating whether to allow the Palestinians a few shreds in the 22% of Palestine Israel hasn’t seized for its state)

        • The essence of your post, although you might not realise it, points up that the N Irish troubles cannot be compared usefully to those of the I/P conflict. Lord Alderdyce, architect of the “peace” agreement there once said as much.

          • “the N Irish troubles cannot be compared usefully to those of the I/P conflict. Lord Alderdyce, architect of the “peace” agreement there once said as much.”

            Your comment is worthless unless you say WHY the two conflicts can’t be compared. I’m certainly not impressed by support from his lordship. Shooting stone-throwers is shooting stone-throwers whatever the setting. I suspect that the difference is that NI police see the protesters as part of their community (however mistaken), while IDF soldiers (and their officers) view Arabs as an alien, lesser breed, and thus fair game.

            • “…while IDF soldiers (and their officers) view Arabs as an alien, lesser breed, and thus fair game.”

              In fact, prof-manqué, it’s your type of palestinista that thinks arabs are a lesser breed. You have the lowest expectations of them and treat them like spoiled children; in fact you only care of using them as an excuse for your true Jew-hatred. Your little idiotic game is transparent.

              • Not surprising to find two mercenaries of Jew-hatred agreeing with each other. Hey, you can already start your own anti-Semitic party. But first call it “anti-Israel” or “anti-Zionist” while the public still has some memory of the Holocaust.

                • Please bring forward evidence of our antisemitism. You’ll need to use diffirent evidence from what you used before that was easily deconstructed.

                  What is the meaning of “SerJew”? Why are ignoring this? Surely your screen-name is nothing to hide? Or do you use the same name in porno movies?

                • The evidence is plenty as everybody here recognizes, except your buddies-in-hatred such as sencar, snottyville, “nat”, etc. As for my nick, use your imagination. Or not, at is seems to be full of either anti-Semitic or pornographic trash.

            • At conference he spoke at, and I was there, he said that the ME conflict was far more complex, toxic and deep-rooted and when further questioned it transpired that the panel agreed that this was because of the deep hatred of Jews by Muslims which is mandated in the koran.

              Now, nowhere in the Bible which both sides in N Ireland share is an injunction for one side to hate the other, much less for them to take such injunctions seriously and literally.

              And frankly I couldn’t give a fig whether or not you are impressed. Your opinions are similarly unimpressive.

          • The French never bombed Muslim kids, Itsik. They joined forces with the Malian army to oust Islamist militia from Timbuktu, a world heritage city, where they were warmly greeted by the local population earlier this week.

            I’m a bit surprised to see that you stand om the side of the Islamist militia, not on the side of the French democracy, itsik.

            • God you have a short memory.

              http://www.digitaljournal.com/article/341266

              And for a broader list of Nato’s supposed “error of judgement” in central Asia:

              http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_civilian_casualties_in_the_War_in_Afghanistan_(2011)

              As for me allying myself with Islamist you couldn’t be further from the truth.
              It is you who choose to allign yourself with the devil.
              You can’t pick and choose you know.
              Israeli troops in general behave far better than the other forces that deal with Islamic radicals, and under the circumstances, and taking into account Israel’s land mass and borders it is amazing that the Arab casualties are so low and that they are actualy being aided on a daily basis.
              As an Israeli this part of our education to assist all our citizens.
              Of course, not everyone was born in the same enviornment and there are racists in Israel just like there are everywhere else.

              You on the other hand choose to ignore this and portray Tzahal as a racist army.

              • “You on the other hand choose to ignore this and portray Tzahal as a racist army.”

                This is libel. I’ve never portrayed Tsahal as a “racist army”, and never will.

                I’m accustomed to the fact that some people on this website use libel because they have limited intelligence and are unable to articulate their thoughts. Please do not join them in their silliness, you’re smarter than that.

            • “I’m a bit surprised to see that you stand om the side of the Islamist militia, not on the side of the French democracy, itsik.” “nat”-the-fraudster

              Great, I see you are veeeeery fond of democracies and also concerned with liberating people from the fangs of Islamism. So you’d certainly favor the ousting the Islamist mafia of Hamas from Gaza, right? And you should side with the Israeli democracy for that, eh?

              Let’s see how will you spin out of that, “nat”. Will you just keep silent or will whine that Hamas is “different”? Take your bets.

              • SerJew, the French army went to Mali at the request of the Malian army. They’re not an occupation force, they will not stay in mali, they will not build illegal settlements in Mali

                It cannot compare to Tsahal, which occupies the Palestinian territory (West Bank, including East Jerusalem, Gaza) and supports the illegal settlement policy in that territory.

            • How do you know that the French didn’t bomb Muslim kids, Nat? Through the fillings in your teeth or a more reliable source? Do tell

      • As you may know, the Northern Ireland (UK) police are currently coming under very hostile attacks from Protestant militants using not just stones but petrol bombs and the occasional bullets. Many police have been injured (although, as ever, they exaggerate severity and numbers). Significantly, the (armed) NI police very rarely use their guns and there have been no serious injuries or deaths amongst the demonstrators. Contrast that approach with that of the IDF towards Palestinian stone-throwers. “Shoot first, whether in danger or not” appears to be the watchword in the West Bank, as the casualty statistics bear witness.

          • Anti-Semitism is a kind of addiction. People like sencar, “nat” and snotty-whatever are motivated and energized by their hatred. Of course, nowadays they need the mask of “anti-racism” or some such BS so they can barf their racist judeophobia.

            • Some else here, Mitnaged I think, said that these people are addicted to the buzz that “righteous”, but disdirected, hatred gives them. Without it they would feel dead inside

          • “A blatant lie”

            I don’t think so, Commentary101. Your reference to The Troubles is irrelevant since they ended with the Good Friday Agreement in 1998. Your second link is to bombings by remnants of the IRA, which have been investigated in the normal way with no shootings by police or army. I was talking about the very recent Protestant riots in protest at limits to flying the union jack over Belfast City Hall. As you can see here, for example, the police were restrained in their response, as I indicated above.

            http://uk.reuters.com/article/2013/01/25/uk-irish-violence-idUKBRE90O18T20130125

            Needless to say, I have no hatred for Israel, just for its government’s actions.

          • sencar probably needs the hatred, Commentary101, or he’ll feel there is no meaning to his miserable life.

        • “…Contrast that approach with that of the IDF towards Palestinian stone-throwers. “Shoot first, whether in danger or not” appears to be the watchword in the West Bank, as the casualty statistics bear witness.”

          Really?
          Is this why fully armed soldiers ran away from a mob early this year?
          They could have shot the lot of them.
          They shot none.

    • You prepare to have your Jew-hating BS challenged, such as this grotesque comparison of Assad to Netanyahu. Just don’t come whining later, like your buddy-in-sensitivity-cum-judeophobia, and equally fraudulent “nat”.

          • Yes, Assad allows latent antisemitism to be present in Syrian government discourse (or maybe promotes it, who knows). Netanyahu claims to speak for all Jews, claims that the state he leads represents all Jews and forces young Jews to be part of one of the most tightly controlled perpetrators of state-sponsored latent violence and violence-inducing, pyschotraumatic, institutions in the world. Namely the Israeli Dehumanization Force.

    • This is not satire, sencar. Even a researcher manque like you should have the intelligence to discern that satire is funny or amusing at some level, which lightens the offence it causes, and it uses wit. There is absolutely nothing funny or witty about this egregious piece of cartoonery.

      And perhaps Jews/Israelis will “get used to it” when Muslims get used to being taken the p*ss out of and “satirised” in similar vein, ie when hell freezes over.

      • What, did the cartoon make the fun of the Jewish religion? (By the way, I think that Muslims rioting at cartoons is ridiculous, before you start going there, but the two are not directly comparable.)

        • You are right, they’re not!
          But not for the ways you were aiming for.
          most of the Muslims rioting never even saw the Cartoons.
          Many of the rioters attacked individuals and assets belonging to people which had nothing to do with publishing or creating the cartoons.

          With regards to the Anti Zionist / Anti Semitic cartoon, most people who find it offensive saw it (I can safely say that over 95% did).
          Hardly any of the people who dislike it even protested at it.
          It does not effect a religion but a nation.
          The Jewish nation and it;s bloody heritege, which you buddy, need a crash course about.
          On second thought forget it. You might actualy enjoy the stories.

    • ” Both have blood on their hands and deserve it.”
      sencar,
      How about Mahmoud Abbas? Hamas? Hezbollah? The Ayatollah? Care to amend your list villains?

      • Yep, they also have blood on their hands. Quite agree. Not sure how this helps your point, however. Also need to add Yitzak Shamir, Golda Meir, Ariel “vegetable” Sharon, Shimon “fake Dove” Peres, etc.

        • Can you name many state leaders who are nor corrupt or have blood on their hands in one way or another?
          By your logic not intervening against a jenocide is in effect contributing to it.
          Your world is not a logical or sane one. It is a black and white one.
          And you call others racists… Now that’s satire.

        • Yeah, and Tony “bush-doggie” Blair, Hitler, Stalin and Churchill, etc, they are all the same, right. Once again, the brave Knight of Hypocrishire succumbs to his imbecilic leftard ideology. BTW, you have offended the comatose population by calling them “vegetables”. As your soul-mate in PC hogwash would say: SHAME ON YOU!

          • Please give evidence for that claim. I do not hate Jews in any way. Should you have evidence to the contrary, please bring it forward.

                • Yes you do. You are mercenary of hatred, obsessing about Israel, dehumanizing Israelis, making stupid comparisons. And you are also a coward that hides behind your fake anti-recist crusade. Your little theatre is no more, Knight of Hypocrishire. Try going back to your “work”.

                • LOL! Homoeroticism is not my obsession, sanitarium. You are such a pathetic mercenary of hatred, so sensitive when you BS is exposed. You bring lots of laughter to this blog and serve as a case study of post-modern Jew-haters.

                • Shove your demands, Soviet commissar-wannabe. People presented it already. You are in denial or are just a mercenary of Jew-hatred, as a typical LEFTARD.

                • Just today you compared Netanyahu with Assad, said he killed arabs for fun, dehumanized the IDF and reduced Jewish culture to religion. And this is for just one day. That’s nothing but alibi anti-Semitism: you use anti-Israelism to mask your Jew-hatred and use your patently hypocritical mask of anti-racism. You need to go back to your “work” and try to find another mask.

                • I thought only humans could be dehumanised. The IDF is an INSTITUTION, not a human. It is comrpised of humans, who have a very tough lot. I sympathise very much with them. Most of them happen to be Jews. So I guess like most antisemites I sympathise with Jews? Your logic is impecable. You are a dick-shit, really.

                  Next you say that I “reduced Jewish culture to religion”. Er, no. People can see for themselves here: http://cifwatch.com/2013/01/30/awaiting-hillarys-robust-condemnation-of-offensive-cartoon/comment-page-1/#comment-103691. As any reasonable person can see, I was making a comparison between the Muhamad cartoons and the cartoon above, noting that the while the former offended against a religion, the second did not, it had no religious symbols in it whatsoever. I wasn’t even talking about culture. Please get a life.

                  What is the meaning of “SerJew”, out of curiosity?

                • “I thought only humans could be dehumanised” Knight of Hypocrishire

                  Aww…you don’t tell. So why you only dehumanise the humans from the IDF, an army which has probably the best record in history in avoiding civilian casualties? And all of that in a country continuously under attack for all its existence. You are just a ridiculous LEFTARD.

                • It isn’t me who dehumanises them. Rather, it’s the people who put them in that position. What does “SerJew” mean?

      • As if….
        The difference is, of course, that sanity, like so many of his head messed ilk, are guilty of inverse racism, that of lowered expectations, which give Muslim/Arab perpetrators of violence against their own people as well as against Israel a free pass.

        They all need to hate Jews and/or Israelis. There’s a goldmine of raw material here for a PhD

    • “Your problem is that neither Scarfe nor the cartoon are anti-Semitic. They are in the great British tradition of political satire. ”

      sencar is now engaged in what we used to refer to as “plausible deniability.”

    • The that Mr Adam Levick is an American citizen who left his country and moved to Israel. He’s does not know the British press.

      • What a preposterous comment.

        CiFWatch, for example, is US-based – but I’m reading it from another continent.

        • CIF Watch is US-based. That’s why they’re unable to report on the British press. They should not interfere with things that are relevant to the British Jewish community only.

          Why isn’t US-based CIF Watch reporting on US based Fox News?

          • Why don’t you explain to us — sickening troll that you are — why a Dutch national, you, are at all exercised about the tidings of a blog dealing with a British newspaper?
            Also, which Dutch/European organ is paying a semi-literate imbecile(you) to troll here?
            And why?
            Don’t dally too long in answering…

            • “Nat”-the-frauster-&-sensitive-dude is not interested in examining his list of contradictions. He doesn’t care about logic nor fact as befits a mercenary of hatred.

            • Itsik, the overwhelming majority of Israelis yearn for peace and coexistence. Israel should not be left in the hands of self-hating Jews who reject peace and preach hatred towards Islam and Christianity.

          • Idiot, why do you keep trolling here as you are neither citizen of Israel nor of the USA?
            You are dumb as bread.

    • What CIF Watch won’t publish: Scarfe often makes use of images of blood in his cartoons.

      The red fluid is splashed across his website and featured, for example, in a recent cartoon of the Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad, who was pictured as a green, wraith-like creature drinking greedily from an oversized cup labelled “Children’s Blood”.

      CIF Watch won’t mention it, but Israeli newspapers did:

      http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4338264,00.html

    • Your problem is that neither Scarfe nor the cartoon are anti-Semitic. They are in the great British tradition of political satire.

      Indeed. I await with baited breath the new Scarfe cartoon displaying Hamas’s Haniyah lobbing rockets and mortars at Israel’s civilian population centres while surrounded by a growing pile of terrified Palestinian children and women designed to protect him from Israel’s response.

      I’m not holding my breath though.

    • If Scarfe had drawn a picture of the Israeli Prime Minister with a condom on his head I don’t think anyone would be complaining about anti-Semitism. Equating Mr. Netanyahu with Bashir Assad is OTT to say the least, and using anti-Semitic motifs to say he is, is simply out of bounds. That you don’t see this, sencar, is not very flattering to you.

  3. not sure that Hilary Clinton has condemned Israel giving contraception to Ethiopian Jews without their knowledge – a rather more serious issue than a cartoon

    • Nope – I don’t think a temporary three month contraceptive shot in the midst of a historic rescue operation (even if it happened – many are disputing the story) is a more serious issue than a major newspaper recycling the exact imagery that led to the Holocaust. But thanks for trying

    • “not sure that Hilary Clinton has condemned Israel giving contraception to Ethiopian Jews without their knowledge – a rather more serious issue than a cartoon”

      No. Just an attempt to deflect on your part.

  4. “I am an admirer of both Hillary and Bill Clinton, and not only because both have been supportive of the American Jewish community and Israel.”

    Oh, but AKUS, how can that be? Several trolls have assured me that you, I, and everyone else here are “right-wing racistsTM,” and we come here to be our “right-wing racist” selves in our “right-wing racist” way. ; )

    On a more serious note, that was a good post, AKUS. Indeed, why haven’t Bill and Hil spoken up? Perhaps it’s just not as big a deal to the man she now works for. They all know that Jews are not going to riot in the streets over this. No one is in danger of violent retribution.

    • They all know that Jews are not going to riot in the streets over this. No one is in danger of violent retribution.

      You’re certainly right about that.

  5. How on earth has the US State Dept. “failed the Jewish community in the UK”? Does AKUS speak for the latter?

    The (George W. Bush-era) State Department also weighed in on the Europeans’ cartoon controversy. It too hastened to reference anti-Semitism and claimed equivalence with the horrendously anti-Semitic cartoons that appear daily in Arab media:

    It did not “claim equivalence” – and you know it. So why make such a claim?

      • Well, you are curious about the identity of Akus, whereas we know your identity as Antisemite.

      • Enough of that, Nat, do you know who YOU are?
        Do you know what day it is?
        And the date?
        And can you remember when you last ate and what?
        Who is the UK Prime Minister?
        If you get even one of the above questions wrong then go to your doctor NOW and tell him that you failed the present state examination.

        Your doctor will know what to do ….

  6. For Hillary Clinton (or any politician of any hue for that matter) to condemn such things there has to be riots, death threats, burning of flags, even murders. That is why I have always maintained violence pays. Now before any thickos here deduce from this that I’m advocating violence let me say that I do not, I discourage it and I abhor it. And that is why I am always batting for the losing side. Democracy is a hostage to extremists who can, with a mere click of a figure or a sermon, wreak havoc on our institutions. We on the other hand, stand tut-tutting on the side lines, shaking our head and may be vent our feeling anonymously on an internet blog or two. Politicians, especially those whose survival depends on Muslim votes, will never be on our side, never. Democracy will be defeated.

    On another note, if no main stream media will raise the matter then I think it would be a good idea to take a traveling exhibition of blood curdling, heinous and vile anti-Semitic literature (that includes cartoons, videos, films of sermons and Nazi material) that is published in the Muslim/Arab world on daily basis and how impressionable kids are taught to hate and kill Jews. And make it a point that none of this has anything to do with Palestine, but Jew hate predates this particular Muslim ire by over a millennia. Decouple Muslim/Arab anti-Semitism from Palestine issue.

      • Dear ‘Nat’ an American politician might be concerned about the activities of an American citizen who owns a newspaper with a worldwide reputation, even if that newspaper is based in Great Britain.

          • Murdoch is a Naturalized, American citizen, you idiot.

            http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rupert_Murdoch

            Is opening a Wikipedia article now too much for you?
            And you’re actually paid for this cheap trolling!
            Money better spent elsewhere, IMHO. An ape would’ve done it better, hammering away aimlessly at a keyboard.

            • He’s a binationl – part Australian, part American. So why not ask the Government of Australia to raise concern, you idiot?

              • You clearly haven’t learned to read, while on a short hiatus from your trolling, moron.
                From my link:
                “…This resulted in Murdoch losing his Australian citizenship…”
                .
                Why aren’t you thus ebullient, when askedabout the ffinanciers of your trolling here?
                In any case, try learning to read in English.
                There’s an article for you in Dutch, failing that.

      • “Why would Hilary Clinton, an American politician, interfere with freedom of the press in Great Britain?”

        a) she wouldn’t, she’d merely be commenting on it,
        b) she’s Secretary of State (that’s the person the president puts in charge of foreign relations)

        • Precisely. She’s in charge of foreign relations, not of foreign press.

          Should she also raise concerns about Israel’s forced contraception of Ethiopian Jewish women?

  7. Hillary’s last pearls of wisdom before leaving her job:

    Meanwhile Kerry’s predecessor as secretary of state, Hilary Clinton, has told Fox News that “the jury’s out” on Egyptian president Mohammed Morsi: “It’s not what somebody says; it’s what they do.”
    So he can spit his hate of the Jews freely he’s only saying it and not doing…according to the US State secretary.

    In an interview ahead of her handover to Kerry, Clinton said of the Arab Spring countries that “there was always going to be a period of adjustment”,
    She should have added that this adjustment period is usually pretty short, depends on the necessery time to murder of the all opponents (see Iran)…
