Hillary Clinton. July 7, 2015

In this same memo to Clinton, Blumenthal told her that U.S. approaches to Hamas “should be more open.” And he makes very clear that the U.S. must distance itself from Israel, stressing that: “The US should not be in the business of reinforcing Israeli propaganda on the incident. No assistance should be provided on its public diplomacy.”

Over the next few days Blumenthal sent Clinton at least a half dozen more emails about the Mavi Marmara incident. Every Blumenthal memo contained either his own thoughts or articles on the incident, each of which placed all of the blame squarely and unequivocally on Israel.

During this same time period Max Blumenthal wrote a hit piece (with several more to come), claiming the violence was planned in advance by the Israelis. He refused to even consider what turned out to be the truth: that the violence was started by the weapons-carrying terrorists and their supporters, all of whom were trying to break a blockade that even the UN has said was legal, and with the Israeli response only escalating in response to the brutal bludgeoning of their troops as they boarded the ship.

Four days after the Mavi Marmara incident, Sid Blumenthal sent Hillary Clinton four articles. One was by his son, another was titled “Israel as a Strategy Liability?” a third from the Washington Post: “The U.S. Needs to Keep Nudging Israel on a Gaza Fix,” another by a Jewish critic of Israel, “Operation Make the World Hate Us,” and the final, a letter to the New York Times from a former U.S. Ambassador to Israel, also castigating Israel for the incident.

Did Clinton actually listen to Blumenthal? Although Blumenthal had direct email access to the-then Secretary of State, maybe he was just writing to a blank wall.

We know that isn’t true, because dozens of times Clinton either responded directly to Blumenthal, or forwarded on his emails to others, asking them to “please print” or “fyi” or to “forward without headers.”

Sometimes Clinton initiated the contacts. Occasionally she asked personal questions of Blumenthal or wished him a “mazel tov” – on his mother’s marriage – or told him how “moving” she found Max Blumenthal’s article about a murdered Palestinian Arab (who was, by the way, killed by other Arabs, but you’d never know that from the bulk of the article which went on and on about the horrors of the “occupation”), or discussed plans for dinner in Georgetown, or asked how well Max’s (viciously anti-Israel) book was faring.

Just one more example of the close relationship between Hillary Clinton and Sidney Blumenthal follows.

Just after midnight on May 31, 2010, Blumenthal sent Clinton yet another email, this one with an article from an Israeli newspaper, detailing yet another stage of the Obama-Netanyahu lack-of-love-fest. Clinton wrote back to Blumenthal at 6:58 a.m. the next morning, asking: “Are you up? Can I call?” to which Blumenthal replied an hour later: “Call anytime. Sid.”

Later that same morning, Blumenthal sent another quick email to Clinton, this one entitled, “one more quick thought.” The body of the memo contained just ten words: “Without ‘tough love,’ any support for Israel will lack credibility.”

And it’s true — Sid’s love for Israel comes through loud and clear in all of his emails to the Secretary. And her appetite for the emails, and for Blumenthal’s take on every aspect of Middle East policy, tells American pro-Israel voters everything they need to know about the Israel policy that would be followed by a Hillary Clinton administration. It’s all there in black, white and REDACTED.

  1. ………and this female ….. this "Dragon Lady" wants to be president ? ….. and needs advise from Sid Bloomenthal ? This woman with a Staline=ist brain wants to be President ? People say,"God help us". please. I say if this happens, Israel will be saying,"OY VEY" all day.

  2. I feel sorry for the chevrah in the US. What a lousy choice. On the one hand you have Mr. Hillary, who will do what she must to who she wants in order to be elected. But at least she knows who she's doing it to, and why.

    Then you have Donald, who may have an idea about running an economy, but has to go bankrupt every so often to make it all work. Try that in the US government.
    His ideas about immigrants, that stoopid wall, and who knows what else are a load of BS. If people wonder if W ever read, you have to have serious questions about the donald.

  3. Considering her general anti Israel stance as Secretary of State, no one should be surprised by the memos or the fact that she passed them on to the State Department. She should know better. During her husband's administration the hapless Ehud Barak made every consession asked of him by the Clinton administration and Ararfat still said "No!".

  4. Don't focus on them and lose the point: Hillary Clinton hires people who opposes Israel, have asked them to draft ideas according to her agenda. She trusts only Arab and believe Israel should be down because USA could not until now solve the Middle East conflict. She does not believe in Israrl right to exist and itvit ahould exist it has to be undere HER terms. Little fascist.

    The witch, Hillary, is a hater of Israel. Every Jew who supports and votes for her, should look in the mirror and ask the mirrow "Iam I sick to support this witch who is going all out to destroy Israel?
    But of course, they are Democ-Rats.
    Before the Muslim in the WH was elected, I phoned friends and relatives in USA NOT to vote for the Muslims
    I was shouted at and told me to mind my own busines as they will vote Dems. I wonder i Htler stood for elections in USA, would they have voted for him?
    If he was a Democ-Rat, they would have.
    One cousin in NY told me never to contact him again, and blocked all my emails,. May Hashem protect Israel from that evil woman.

  6. First about H. Clinton.She is and has never been a friend of Israel. Her interests lie with the Arab world, because she and the Clinton's Foundation receive millions of dollars. She was receiving that money while Secretary of Stae of the US. That's illegal, and based on that fact alone, she should not be allowed to run for President of the USA.
    Now turning to Trump. It seems that the world and a lot of Americans do not understand what's happening in the USA.
    Trump is no dummy and certainly knows exactly what he is doing. Just look at the results. His goal is to shatter the Establishment, punish the good for nothing congress and reevaluate our economy and our world's position. I am not a fan of his, however what we need here in the USA, is what Bernie Sanders always said "A Revolution". Stop being Politically correct and defend the USA . We have been molested and abused by our trading partners, it's about time we turn the tables on them. As far as foreign policy , I am certain he'll name a good Secretary of Sate and surround himself with the proper persons to run our great country.
    Cruz and Rubio are too far to the right, and bad for women's rights. Don't forget this year's election is not only choosing a President,, but even more important selecting not one but probably three Supreme Court Justices.

  7. Just mentioning Blumenthal gives him exposure. In his line of work any exposure, whether good or bad is advertising. Let us accept that he is a traitor to humanity and ignore him. That will hurt him more. Rabid discussions puts him in the news. . The Hillary is an add on disgrace, her running for the presidency is all about money. Politicians like her if allowed into power will eventually bring the country down and value add to the anticipated third world war.
