Senator Hillary Clintonâ€™s presidential campaign is gaining fans, even on the West Bank.
â€œI hope Hillary is elected in order to have the occasion to carry out all the promises she is giving regarding Iraq,â€ said Ala Senakreh, West Bank chief of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, a Palestinian terror group. â€œPresident Clinton wanted to give the Palestinians 98 percent of the West Bank territories. I hope Hillary will move a step forward and will give the Palestinians all their rights.â€
Senakreh and other top Islamo-fascists want Hillary in the Oval Office. These mass murders also have â€œgone negative.â€ They want GOP contender Rudy Giuliani dead.
â€œWe see Hillary and other candidates are competing on who will withdraw from Iraq,â€ said Abu Jihad of Al Aqsaâ€™s Nablus unit. â€œThis is a moment of glory for the revolutionary movements in the Arab worldâ€¦â€
Al Aqsaâ€™s Nasser Abu Aziz, considered it â€œvery goodâ€ that there are â€œvoices like Hillary and others who are now attacking the Iraq invasion.â€
Islamic Jihadâ€™s Abu Ayman felt â€œemboldenedâ€ by Clintonâ€™s demands that America retreat from Iraq. He said: â€œIt is clear that it is the resistance operations of the mujahideen that have brought about these calls for withdrawal.â€
â€œAll Americans must vote Democrat,â€ insisted Jihad Jaara, an exiled Al Aqsa agent who commanded 2002â€™s siege of Bethlehemâ€™s Church of the Nativity.
Since 1995, these terroristsâ€™ organizations have killed an estimated 162 and wounded 368 others in Israel. Aaron Klein, an Orthodox Jew who is WorldNetDaily.comâ€™s Jerusalem Bureau Chief, interviewed some three dozen leading Muslim fanatics, including those quoted here. His new book, â€œSchmoozing with Terrorists,â€ details these chilling encounters with violent Islamic extremists in Israelâ€™s Palestinian territories.
Why do these hardened butchers have a soft spot for Hillary Clinton? Perhaps because the New York Democrat is soft on terrorism.
*Clinton rejects robustly interrogating terrorists even in â€œticking time bombâ€ scenarios. In a September 26 Democratic debate, she said: â€œIt cannot be American policy, period.â€
*Clinton opposes the U.S. Terrorist Surveillance Program, calling it â€œa secret program that spies on Americans.â€
*Clinton voted against military tribunals for terror suspects, including al-Qaeda detainees.
*Clinton has zigzagged on Iraq. In autumn 2002, she voted for Operation Iraqi Freedom. Last January 18, she told PBS: â€œI think the timetable still remains problematicâ€ for leaving Iraq. But on February 17, she stated: â€œItâ€™s time to say the redeployment should start in 90 daysâ€¦â€
Meanwhile, Clintonâ€™s campaign has not responded to my request to list her counterterrorist accomplishments.
These terroristsâ€™ love for Hillary mirrors their hatred for her leading GOP rival, Rudy Giuliani.
â€œIf I had the occasion to meet him I would hurt him,â€ said Ramadan Adassi, a West Bank Al Aqsa leader. â€œFor the sake of the American people, Giuliani shouldnâ€™t be elected.â€
â€œGiuliani doesnâ€™t deserve to live or even to be mentioned,â€ said Al Aqsaâ€™s Ala Senakreh. â€œHe hates Palestinians and we hate him.â€
Al Aqsaâ€™s Abu Hamed said Giuliani â€œcan hate Arafat and the Palestinians, but he knows that nobody is hated in the world more than his leadership, his party, his president, and his Zionist friends.â€
Why the hard feelings? Perhaps because Giuliani has snipped terroristsâ€™ bomb wires for 31 years.
*Mayor Giulianiâ€™s NYPD officers in July 1997 arrested two Palestinians with Jordanian passports and five pipe-bombs. They were convicted of immigration fraud and plotting to blast Brooklynâ€™s Atlantic Avenue subway station.
*As New York Cityâ€™s U.S. Attorney, Giuliani attempted in 1988 to close the Palestine Liberation Organizationâ€™s United Nations observer mission under the 1987 Anti-Terrorism Act.
*In 1986, Giuliani targeted an anti-Castro group responsible for two murders and 25 bombings. Giuliani secured guilty pleas from three Omega 7 members who conspired to kill Cubaâ€™s U.N. ambassador in 1980 and blow up its Manhattan consulate in 1979.
*Giuliani represented the Justice Department on President Gerald Fordâ€™s Cabinet Committee to Combat Terrorism in 1976.
â€œI donâ€™t believe Americans should base their votes entirely on what the terrorists think,â€ Aaron Klein says from Jerusalem, â€œbut itâ€™s certainly telling that our enemies are rooting for the Democrats, particularly Hillary.â€
As the War on Terror continues, Americans should study our foesâ€™ political preferences — and then pull the lever the other way.
