But, objectively, is Trump really any less vulgar politically than Clinton, who once laughingly declared “we came, we saw, he died” to describe the horrific death—sodomized by bayonets—of Libyan leader Muammar Qadaffi? Some liberals in their search for reasons to support Clinton over Sanders have pointed to her “extensive” foreign policy experience. Actually, they would be better off not bringing up the topic. Does it matter that this experience includes supporting the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq? Does it matter that she supports global assassinations by drone as an instrument of foreign policy? Or that as Secretary of State in 2009 she had her slippery hand involved in the right-wing coup in Honduras? Does it matter she has stood as an unabashed apologist for Israel’s repeated genocidal assaults on Palestinian Gaza?

It is my view that the Israeli government, with the active support and military aid of the U.S. government is committing human rights abuses and genocide against the Palestinian people. I believe that Hillary Clinton is aggressively, willfully, and consciously aiding and abetting that genocide and must be defeated in California and at the Democratic Convention.

“They will oppose genocide wherever they’re not holding the rein. You know, this doesn’t apply to Palestine [where Israel is carrying out genocide] for example. It doesn’t apply to Libya, where Madame Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was in office. They witnessed the almost complete extermination of black people in Libya, and had nothing to say about this except this disgusting cynical laugh: ‘We came, we saw, he died,’” Welch observed.

The Onion was recently bought by Hillary Clinton’s biggest supporter, Haim Saban — who says he supports Clinton because he is a “one-issue guy, and that issue is Israel.” Because although all of the candidates are fairly pro-Israel (yes, even your beloved Bernie Sanders favors the Zionists over the victims of Israel’s genocide), Clinton objectively supports them the most. Thinking about why that’s wrong made me realize there are still a lot of people who don’t know much about the Palestinian genocide.

Bernie Sanders is a marvelous orator, full of passion and conviction. Bernie, like Obama and Hillary, supports the U.S./Israel genocide in Palestine and more war in Afghanistan. Voting for any of the candidates is voting for The American Empire: endless war, genocide in Palestine, support of horrible dictators, drones, 800 military bases the world over.

Without realising that it was taking on the Goliath of the American political system, the Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign set out a decade ago to stop Israeli government-backed artistes from performing in their capital city at one of the world’s best known festivals… SPSC learned this week just how powerful its campaigns proved to be when an article in The Scotsman newspaper revealed how Hillary Clinton tried to exert pressure on film festival organisers to accept financial backing from Israel… “We are amazed by the news because Clinton’s emails were obviously never intended to see the light of day,” commented Mick Napier. “Every email proves that we can change things although until now it was kept secret just how successful our actions were. We had no idea this was going on behind the scenes.”
The veteran activist gave credit to the Scottish government for resisting this sort of pressure. “We can now say that this is an Edinburgh anti-apartheid, clean air act; in other words, the festivals are an Israeli-state-sponsored-free zone.” When Edinburgh has the Palestinian equivalent of Glasgow’s Nelson Mandela Place, he suggested, then we will be able to say that the Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign played its part in the struggle against Israeli Apartheid and genocide.
