Bill Clinton to Israel: Iran No Threat

NewsMax ^ | November 17, 2005 | Carl Limbacher

Ex-president Bill Clinton urged Israelis over the weekend not to overreact to comments by newly elected Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad recommending that Israel be "wiped off the map."

Speaking at the King David Hotel in Jerusalem on Saturday, Clinton acknowledged that the remark was "outrageous," but he cautioned that the Iranian leader was "not elected because of his hatred for Israel or the West."

"He was elected because of the economic distress of ordinary Iranians, and which he promised to relieve by giving them financial assistance," Clinton explained, according to the Jerusalem Post.

He warned Israel not to act unilaterally when reacting to terrorist threats, saying that "true peace and security can only come through principled compromise."

Clinton urged Israelis to "organize their politics" so "their search for peace can continue" regardless of domestic policies.

On Oct. 27, President Ahmadinejad told a "World Without Zionism" conference that Israel is a "disgraceful blot" on the Middle East that should be "wiped off the map."

Next he'll say al Qaeda isn't a threat to the US. That we should "make friends" with bin Laden.
What planet is he on?!
How could this genius become the US president!

He probably became president because some people interpret this message differently then you do. The way I interpret this is that he is being diplomatic in this powder keg, we call the middle east.
What would be your suggestion on this affair? Throw a nuke on them?

It sounds like Mr. Clinton has as much trouble controlling his mouth as he has had controlling the rest of his body parts. He's not a diplomat he represents nobody but himself. Why would Israel or anyone else care what he says these days? Besides he's not exactly famous for telling the truth or making a lot of sense out of a situation. Remember these statements?

"It depends on what the meaning of the words 'is' is." –Bill Clinton, during his 1998 grand jury testimony on the Monica Lewinsky affair

"It depends on how you define alone…" –Bill Clinton, in his grand jury testimony

"There were a lot of times when we were alone, but I never really thought we were." –Bill Clinton, in his grand jury testimony

"What's a man got to do to get in the top fifty?" –Bill Clinton, reacting to a survey of journalists that ranked the Monica Lewinsky scandal as the 53rd most significant story of the century

"I don't know whether it's the finest public housing in America or the crown jewel of the American penal system." –Bill Clinton, on the White House

"When I was in England, I experimented with marijuana a time or two, and I didn't like it. I didn't inhale and never tried it again." –Bill Clinton

"Politics gives guys so much power that they tend to behave badly around women. And I hope I never get into that." –Bill Clinton, to a woman friend while he was a Rhodes scholar at Oxford

"It was a real sort of Southern deal. I had AstroTurf in the back. You don't want to know why, but I did." –Bill Clinton, reminiscing about a pickup truck he once owned

"You know, if I were a single man, I might ask that mummy out. That's a good-looking mummy" —Bill Clinton, looking at "Juanita," a newly discovered Incan mummy on display at the National Geographic museum

"Being president is like running a cemetery: you've got a lot of people under you and nobody's listening." –Bill Clinton

"Look, half the time when I see the evening news, I wouldn't be for me, either." –Bill Clinton, in 1995, on a pre-campaign swing through Montana and Colorado

I'm suspicious about this article. The only source that I could find is NewsMax which has an extremely well known right wing/anti Bill Clinton political agenda. Its the rightwing version of Moveon.org, sorry I'm not buying it, something like that would be in the mainstream media and you could be sure the right such as FOX would pounce on it. Newsmax, Drudge, Moveon, Mediamatters etc are all extremely bias and their crediability is zero with me.

All politicians lie, including the good ones. The difference is what they lie about. Yes Lewinsky and the drug thing was stupid and quite obvious. I refer to it as 'lawyering' which means take a very simple concept such as sex with a women and try and dissect it so much that it sounds like something else. Except its so obvious, that it fools nobody. No doubt, its a chilish tactic that tries to take everyone for a fool. I understand why Clinton lied I dont fault him for it (just try admitting an affair in front of 4 Billion people) he should have just lied better. Clintons fibs while childish were generally harmless (at least to the nation, although I doubt Hillary minded too much either). I mean seriously how much sleep did you lose when you discovered Clinton had an affair? It wasnt their first time thats happened (Kennedy, Eisenhower, FDR).

On the other hand compare that to a president sent his C.R.E.E.P friends to spy on political opponents and then had the audicity to say "I'm Not a Crook!". Or another who traded anti-tank missiles to Iran in direct violation of congress and claimed "he didn't remember". Or worse the current situation in a sitting US President knowing full well that there was no evidence to link Saddam to Niger Yellowcake went ahead and presented this as fact during the State of the Union in order to trick the American people into believing their lives were in danger.

It makes what Clinton did rather small in comparison.

That stuff that those presidents did, you can say is bad (for the most part).

The stuff Clinton says and the attitude he represents (with Iran), well that stuff could very well lead to the destruction of Western civilization, in the least a large scale war later. So it ends up being more dangerous and more destructive in the long run.

Thats how I see it at least. So I'll take guys like those over a Clinton type anyday.

Gee and I thought my post was about the stupid things Clinton said. If you want to start another thread about which president has done the worst things the go ahead. No guarantee that it won't get locked though

Clinton... god, well, we ellected an Arkansas governor because he was good at playing a saxaphone and we're surprised he's in over his head in foreign affairs?

At least he knew when not to meddle too much domestically and, let's face it, he'll never be as much of a life-long embarassment as Carter has been.
