I've Been Thinking:
Former president Bill Clinton is offering us a perfect example of the myopia and weakness that characterized United States foreign policy during his tenure and that continues to hamper US foreign policy even today.
Clinton offered his thoughts on the landslide victory of Hamas in the Palestinian Legislature election.
Commenting on Hamas' call for the destruction of Israel, Clinton said:
"I think there's a way to work through this, yes. I think there's a way to get them into that, I mean I hope there is."
The lessons of Arafat and his leadership seem wasted on Clinton.
Words are irrelevant, it is actions that count in the world occupied by Arafat and Hamas.
Arafat was the most visited head of state to the Clinton White House. Arafat told Clinton exactly what Clinton wanted to hear but proceeded to do whatever he, Arafat, wanted to do. Again. And again. And again.
Now Hamas has hired spin doctors to spin their image.
We must use our eyes, not our ears, to evaluate the true Hamas message
