Keep Hillary Clinton Out of The White House, Another Jimmy Carter and Worse

There are two reasons I'd give Americans not to support Hillary Clinton's bid for the Presidency of the United States:

  • her aim to be the first female president
  • her pro-Arab anti-Israel policies
I consider voting for a woman, just because she's a woman as being highly sexist and extremely demeaning for women in general. It's saying that there can't be a qualified woman, so just to get a woman in as President of the USA you must ignore her qualifications and platform and just go for the DNA. That's the same basic philosophy many people used to back or excuse their voting for Obama. "It's time for America to have a black president." And I have no doubt that the slogan, "It's time for America to have a female president" will be the main mantra of the cause, oops campaign. 

Many will claim it's a moral issue, because for them "putting" a woman in that highest elected office is almost a religion. They may question their priests or rabbis, but they don't question those who tout this sort of "morality." religion. Just like with Obama, whose election ignored the real issues, because people were told to vote for "hope," voting for "a woman" will no doubt mean that many people will be surprised that the Mrs. or Ms President will follow or initiate policies they totally oppose.

That brings me to my second reason not to vote for or support Hillary. She has a long history of being pro-Arab, pro-Palestinian and anti-Israel. Those who have carefully read her book Hard Choices see it there, too. The Lid's post gives a number of examples. Here's the first:
1) Occupation/Dignity “When we left the city and visited Jericho, in the West Bank, I got my first glimpse of life under occupation for Palestinians, who were denied the dignity and self-determination that Americans take for granted” (pg 302). Nothing about terrorism, such as blowing up buses with school children, nothing about the fact that during he presidency of her husband Yassir Arafat turned down a deal that would have given him about 98% of what he wanted (at least that's what Bill Clinton said).
The Wall Street Journal gave it an awful review. 
The book has been publicly available for just a few hours but already the focus has turned from whatever new revelations are in the book – very few, and the juiciest have already been picked over in the leak to Politico of its Benghazi chapter – to Mrs. Clinton’s remark to ABC that she and former President Bill Clinton were “dead broke” upon leaving the White House and struggled to pay the “mortgages for houses.”
Many of us will never forget Hillary's warm greeting to Suha Arafat. That's the image of Hillary we can't delete from our minds. This happened at a time when Israelis were suffering from Arab terrorism, which originated from Yasser Arafat's followers.

I just can't ignore the fact that there are strong similarities between Hillary's positions and Jimmy Carter's. Carter's book Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid is an absolute scandal full of distortions and lies. The United States does not need another president like him. Hasn't Obama been bad enough?

Yes,but as they say...a country gets the leader it deserves.
Problem is, we in Israel don't get to vote on whichever dumbo ends up in the US White House.

the electorate in america are stupid, mostly. they voted into office - twice - a man hell bent on destroying this country. so don't think appealing to the sense of the people in america will help. on the whole they're dunces. too bad. there remains hope nevertheless - after this criminal in office finds his way out - for by then the economy will be in a wreck, as are most other aspects of america today, so they might, just might, pick a sensible person to vote for this time.

Van you give Americans too much credit. Any American idiot over the age of 18 can vote. And what is the most important issue to most? Same sex marriage...
