(CNSNews.com) – Secretary of State Hillary Clinton raised eyebrows at the weekend with comments in Tunisia predicting that President Obama would be re-elected, but less attention was given to the context of her remark – which cam in reply to a question about U.S. presidential candidates pandering to “Zionist lobbies.”
In fact, given her response, it’s hard to believe that Clinton understood (or possibly correctly heard) the question.
Taking part in a town hall with students in Tunis on Saturday, Clinton was asked how an elected president would regain the trust of Arabs after having run a campaign with stances in favor of “his enemy” – an apparent reference to Israel.
“We noticed here in Tunisia that most of the candidates from the both sides run towards the Zionist lobbies to get their support in the States,” said the questioner. “And afterwards, once they are elected, they come to show their support for countries like Tunisia and Egypt … How would you reassure and gain his trust again, once given the fact that you are supporting his enemy as well at the same time?”
In her reply, Clinton did not touch on the reference to “Zionist lobbies” or “enemy.” If taken at face value, her response implied that Republican and Democratic presidential candidates’ pro-Israel stances are merely campaign rhetoric that shouldn’t be taken seriously.
