Email shows Clinton considered plan to foment unrest among Palestinians for political gain

Hillary_Clinton_Testimony_to_House_Select_Committee_on_BenghaziAccording to an email released by the State Department last week, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton considered a secret plan to foment unrest among Palestinians to get Israel back to the negotiating table.

A report by the Washington Free Beacon said that “former U.S. ambassador to Israel Thomas Pickering suggested that Clinton consider a plan to restart then-stalled peace negotiations by kickstarting Palestinian demonstrations against Israel.”

“Pickering,” the report adds, “described the effort as a potential ‘game changer in the region,’ recommending that the United States undertake a clandestine campaign to generate unrest. Clinton requested that his email be printed.”

Even before then, Clinton expressed a great deal of interest in using the Palestinians as a political tool to put pressure on Israel, as the redacted email indicates below.

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

It’s also interesting to note the email was sent from Clinton’s private email server using the address hrod17@clintonemail.com.


Pickering, the report added, said the administration “must keep its role in the demonstration a secret, so as not to aggravate ties with Israel.”
