Bad news for Palestinians: Clinton promises to take US-Israel relationship to the next level
At this year’s annual Israel Lobby (AIPAC) conference, Hillary Clinton warned, "Palestinian leaders must stop inciting violence, glorifying them as martyrs and stop paying rewards to their families”. Her lies and distortions of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict only got worse from there.
Clinton added that Israelis face “brutal terrorist stabbings, shootings and vehicle attacks at home,” but never once did she mention the three words at the centre of the conflict – occupation, colonisation, apartheid – and nor did they follow the phrase “resistance to”.
Clinton yet again reminded the world that the Palestinians are the only occupied people in history to be held responsible for the welfare of their occupier.
