Who's the biggest Israel hater in the Obama White House?

It seems that in the Obama White House, the boss may not be the biggest Israel hater. That title may well belong to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (Hat Tip: Shy Guy).
In his book American Evita, Christopher Anderson writes.
At a time when elements of the American Left embraced the Palestinian cause and condemned Israel, Hillary was telling friends that she was "sympathetic" to the terrorist organization and admired its flamboyant leader, Yasser Arafat. When Arafat made his famous appearance before the UN General Assembly in November 1974 wearing his revolutionary uniform and his holster on his hip, Bill "was outraged like everybody else," said a Yale Law School classmate. But not Hillary, who tried to convince Bill that Arafat was a "freedom fighter" trying to free his people from their Israeli "oppressors." (1)
Of course Hillary's feelings about the PLO and Israel are only one aspect of her character, often a person's true nature is more closely revealed in a more intimate setting. In an early showcase of Hillary's diplomatic skills Christopher Anderson relates an experience that she and her future husband had during a trip to Arkansas in 1973.
It was during this trip to his home state that Bill took Hillary to meet a politically well connected friend. When they drove up to the house, Bill and Hillary noticed that a menorah-the seven branched Hebrew candelabrum (not to be confused with the more common and subtler mezuzah)-has been affixed to the front door.

"My daddy was half Jewish," explained Bill's friend. "One day when he came to visit , my daddy placed the menorah on my door because he wanted me to be proud that we were part Jewish. And I wasn't about to say no to my daddy."

To his astonishment, as soon as Hillary saw the menorah, she refused to get out of the car. "Bill walked up to me and said that she was hot and tired, but later he explained the real reason." According to the friend and another eyewitness, Bill said, "I'm sorry, but Hillary's really tight with the people in the PLO in New York. They're friends of hers, and she just doesn't feel right about the menorah." (2)
Read the whole thing. After that second story, anyone want to try to convince me that she 'only' hates Israel and not Jews?

For those who don't recall the picture, that's Hillary kissing Suha Arafat just after Mrs. Arafat claimed that Israel was poisoning the water in Gaza. Hillary later claimed that she didn't understand what Suha said. Sure....

In that light, her dressing down of Netanyahu last week was in all likelihood her initiative and not that of Obama. They do share a certain view of the Middle East and sympathy with Israel's situation is not among them.

I suspected as much. I believe the reason she made so many efforts to reach out to the Jewish community in NY was because she knew all along it was her weak spot. Its' my Anti-Semite radar if you will. People in free countries that hate Jews are usually overly friendly to those same Jews. it is part curiosity and part prudent behavior that leads to to give the perception to other's that they aren't haters... that is if they are educated.

Of course Obama is the biggest hater, since as he admitted in Quranic code at Cairo, he is a Muslim & the Jews should be killed and their land taken.

That said, Hillary has by choice spent way too much time under the influence of Huma Abedin.
