Hillary Clinton: only we can "interfere" in Gaza


In yet another example of the pot calling the Corning Ware black, Hillary Clinton has accused Iran of "interference" in Palestine. Was she claiming that Iran was arming Hamas? No. Was she even talking about the 2,000 tons of humanitarian aid that Iran has attempted to send to Gaza, only to be turned back by Egypt? No again. No, her idea of "clear interference in the internal affairs of the Palestinian people" was a speech by Ayatollah Khamenei in which he warned that compromising with Israel was a mistake. And what radical solution was he advocating? Armed uprising? External invasion by the Arab masses? No, he "called for holding a referendum by Jews, Christian and Muslims in Palestine to determine the future of the country." Calling for a democratic election! How dare he interfere in that way!

The U.S. which is busy upping the arms it sends to Fatah to help them suppress Hamas, actively participates in and supports the blockade of Gaza and the collective punishment of the Palestinian people, supplies three billion worth of military and other aid to Israel every year to subjugate the Palestinian people, runs diplomatic interference for Israel in the U.N. while it tries to wipe Hamas from the map, and will not even condemn Israel's ban on the shipment of 90 tons of pasta to Gaza and will not even agree publicly that macaroni is not a "dual-use" item (!), that is not the kind of "interference" in Palestinian affairs Clinton had in mind.

For a view of the Gaza prison from the inside, this animated video is worth watching, as is this "making of" video. Both were made by the animation director of "Waltz with Bashir" in conjunction with Gisha, an Israel not-for-profit organization dedicated to the freedom of movement (for Palestinians). No doubt Clinton thinks they're "interfering."


Why stop here? There's more...
