Dear Hillary, From Gaza

Israel/Palestine
on 9 Comments

U.S. elections have an outsized effect on the residents of many countries, but among the most impacted are those imprisoned in the occupied Palestinian territories. In this video, 21-year-old Besan Aljadili, a writer for We Are Not Numbers in Gaza, responds to the nomination of Hillary Clinton for U.S. president.

In her acceptance speech, the former Secretary of State talked of how proud women should be of her status as the first female to be nominated for America’s highest office. But will Hillary Clinton listen to a fellow female, half a world away, who feels she and her people have been rejected and trivialized? Watch and share.

    Compare the two sets of comments – one from a courageous,determined and honourable young woman hopefully with a bright future and one from a loathsome bent and bought lying hypocrite with only a disgusting corrupt past and one who simply doesn`t give a toss about the thousands of innocent Palestinian children slaughtered by her Zionist employers in Gaza over the last two decades . Guess which one the majority of decent civilized human beings around the world would like to meet. No contest.

    The only thing missing from HC`s comments was a claim that she had been caught up in a terrorist attack during the JSIL visit she was talking about , you know the kind that really spices up the CV – but then again once bitten etc

    Perhaps on her next visit to Israel,which most definitely will not include a visit to the JSIL controlled Gaza concentration camp or the in your face Apartheid West Bank her bosom buddy and boss , the Yahoo , can arrange for some safely orchestrated “under fire” scenario for her to boast about on her return.

    This two faced creature is likely to become the next President of the U.S. Civilized Americans must be despairing.

      She tried the target trick in Sarajevo, on the airport tarmac, claiming being targeted by snipers. Shaky snipers I’d say…

    HALL & OATS:

    She’ll only come out at nights
    The lean and hungry type
    Nothing is new
    I’ve seen her here before
    Watching and waiting
    Ooh, she’s sittin’ with you
    But her eyes are on the door

    So many have paid to see
    What you think
    You’re gettin’ for free
    The woman is wild
    A she-cat tamed
    By the purr of a Jaguar
    Money’s the matter
    If you’re in it for love
    You ain’t gonna get too far

    Watch out boy
    She’ll chew you up

    (Oh-oh, here she comes)
    She’s a maneater
    (Oh-oh, here she comes)
    Watch out boy
    She’ll chew you up
    (Oh-oh, here she comes)
    She’s a maneater

    I wouldn’t if I were you
    I know what she can do
    She’s deadly man
    And she could really rip your world apart

    Mind over matter
    Ooh, the beauty is there
    But a beast is in the heart

      GlobalPost: Qaddafi apparently sodomized after capture

      [EXCERPT] Amid mounting questions about just how and when Muammar Qaddafi died, a GlobalPost analysis of video footage suggests a Libyan fighter sodomized the former dictator after he was captured near Sirte.
      As GlobalPost reports:

      A frame by frame analysis of this exclusiveGlobalPost video clearly shows the rebel trying to insert some kind of stick or knife into Gaddafi’s rear end.
      GlobalPost correspondent Tracey Shelton said there is some question as to whether the instrument was a knife from the end of a gun, which Libyans call a Bicketti, or a utilitiy tool known as a Becker Knife and Tool, which is popularly known as a BKT. . .

    Every American leader supports, protects, and showers Israel with American dollars.

    Right now, our President has shown his unconditional support, despite Nutty insulting him numerous times:

    As Israel Prospers, Obama Set to Give Billions More in Aid While Netanyahu Demands Even More

    It is hard to understand why the US cannot DEMAND that Israel end the occupation, stop the illegal settlements, and give the Palestinians back the lands and water they stolen, at THIS POINT, before they are sent the charity they keep groveling and demanding from us.

    Hard as it is to understand, Israel takes the money.

    Palestine is unable to advantage itself, from this system of competing special interests, due to the permission notes regularly written by acts of resistance that get characterized as terrorism .
