Abdul Qader Tash, Senior columnist, Arab News, Al Madina newspapers, in an article titled America’s love for Jews and Israel finds a reason to dislike former President Clinton that is as perverse as it is unique:
Perhaps America’s “ardor” for Jews is best exemplified by its former, and unlamented, president, Bill Clinton. If they had the power to change the US constitution, the Jews would have amended that document to elect Clinton as president for life. They had every reason to do that. No US president had been such a servant of the Jews as Bill Clinton was. His term is considered by the Jews as the best time for them, as clearly stated by a number of Jewish leaders. What is more, Clinton was not satisfied with serving the Jews while serving the mightiest nation in the world as its president; he continues to serve them after leaving the White House.
The other day, there were reports that Clinton’s present income is more than his earnings in the eight years he spent in the White House. The income is from the lectures he has been delivering at various places. Some attribute his success in the lecture circuit to his handsomeness, eloquence and charisma. There may be some truth to that. However, the real reason, many others say, is that he has proved himself an excellent salesman. After he left the White House, he gave three lectures in the UK, the entire proceeds of which went to Jewish charities. That smart move opened for him the doors of Jewish organizations to speak, for hefty fees, on “the Jewish question”.
Then, what do we call Clinton’s love for Jews? True, manufactured, or feigned?
And I ask, what do we call the ‘Destroy Israel at all costs’ stance held by Arab intellectuals? Disgusting, disturbing, or deranged?
