Jon Stewart tries to lead Hillary Clinton down the usual path of blaming Israel for the situation in Gaza.
To my great surprise, Hillary tells it like it is. Wow! Listen to this clip. The usual wise-cracking Stewart was mostly silent as he realized he wasn’t getting a bone tossed to continue on his usual Israel-bashing rant coated in pseudo “I’m kinda Jewish too” humor.
She explains how she brokered the cease-fire in 2010, and how Hamas, and Palestinians in Gaza were given funds (billions of dollars frim USA and EU…ed.) and they squandered it on violence and inner Palestinian games. From this talk we learn that, 1. She actually gets it, 2. She’s not afraid to speak her mind – even when it bucks the conventional sugar-coated liberal agenda.
The discussion needs to be shifted from blaming Israel, to figuring out to dismantle Hamas and actually bring a solution to the Palestinian people.
