While looking through the newest batch of Hillary Clinton emails released by the State Department, one finds a disturbing anti-Israel trend. Her advisers regularly criticized Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, the "US. Jewish community," and AIPAC.
Clinton aide Sidney Blumenthal sent Clinton an article titled, "The Failure of the American Jewish Establishment." Blumenthal added, "The hysterical tone of much of the Israeli leadership and US Jewish community is partly rooted in this long-term and profound development." Clinton replied, asking that he "Pls print 3 copies."
This largely redacted email from Hillary Clinton's Deputy Chief of Staff Jake Sullivan includes the subject line, "Dealing with Netanyahu." "Dealing with" is a strange way to talk about working with an American ally, and it isn't any wonder why it's redacted.
Blumenthal reminded Clinton not to let Netanyahu set the terms at Camp David. "Don't operate from blank slate or allow Bibi to set the terms. There are already terms." He also sent Clinton some ideas, noting, "This puts the burden on Bibi to repudiate Barak in principles and details if he pushes back, splitting his coalition, and appearing to be the rejectionist." The email subject line was, "an idea, perhaps useless, but nonetheless..." Clinton ensured him the idea was "Not useless--thx."
This email from Blumenthal told Clinton to "Hold Bibi's Feet To The Fire" in her AIPAC speech. He also added that, "...while praising AIPAC, remind it in as subtle but also direct a way as you can that it does not have a monopoly over American Jewish opinion. Bibi is stage managing US Jewish organizations (and neocons, and the religious right, and whomever else he can muster) against the administration."
Sullivan also sent Clinton an article about Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer straying from the Obama administration on Israel.
In yet another, Blumenthal emails Clinton, talking about Likud "propaganda." "The New Republic is a preferred cutlet for the highest level Likudineocon propaganda."
