Bill Clinton goes Jimmy Carter – claims Russian Jews are biggest obstacle Middle East peace deal
When Bill Clinton was elected in 1992 I thought for sure he was the next Jimmy Carter. He sounded like Carter, governed like Carter before the Republicans took Congress and even in a strange sort of way looked like Jimmy Carter back in the ’90. Clinton of course got his bacon saved by the Republican congress and ended up benefiting from the internet bubble. Today in 2010 it seems Jimmy Carter has re-emerged in Barack Hussein Obama. Both are disasters with the economy, both are dumb as a box of rocks, and both are anti-Israel. I guess feeling left out of the progressive liberal Democrat Israel and jew hatred, you can now add Monica’s dress ruiner Bill Clinton to the last of Israel bashers. According to The Cable, Bubba Clinton claims Russian immigrants to Israel are the biggest obstacle to achieving a Middle East peace deal.
Russian immigrants to Israel have emerged as a central obstacle to achieving a Middle East peace deal, according to former President Bill Clinton. He voiced fears that the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), which increasingly consists of soldiers hailing from this community, might not be fully willing to oppose Israeli settlers as a result.
In a roundtable with reporters during his Clinton Global Initiative conference in New York, Clinton made his most extensive remarks on the Israeli-Palestinian peace process that his wife, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, is spearheading.
“An increasing number of the young people in the IDF are the children of Russians and settlers, the hardest-core people against a division of the land. This presents a staggering problem,” Clinton said. “It’s a different Israel. 16 percent of Israelis speak Russian.”
According to Clinton, the Russian immigrant population in Israel is the group least interested in striking a peace deal with the Palestinians. “They’ve just got there, it’s their country, they’ve made a commitment to the future there,” Clinton said. “They can’t imagine any historical or other claims that would justify dividing it.”
