Hillary Clinton at AIPAC, It’s Behavior, Stupid

Whenever I discuss Judaism, I frequently define the corpus of Jewish ritual, law and thought as a behaviorist religion.

Normative Orthodox Judaism does not involve itself in theological or philosophical discussions. When we learn Torah (the Written Law) and Talmud (the Oral Law), G-d is a given. The 613 mitzvot — prescriptive commandments and prohibitions — are another given. The Talmud struggles with how human beings — as individuals and as members of families, communities, and humanity — can best serve HaShem through our daily actions.

What we think, and what others think or feel, is fleeting and often unknowable.

The measure of who we are lies in our actions — the way we conduct our daily lives.

All this ran through my mind when I heard excerpts of Hillary Clinton’s speech to AIPAC. I’m not going to slice and dice her speech because, quite frankly, it’s a waste of time and energy.

Hillary is a congenital liar. Therefore, everything she says in the public sphere must be viewed as just another fiction in the march of metafictions that is her life.

More important is Hillary Clinton’s record during her tenure as secretary of state — a time when U.S.–Israel relations turned positively toxic.

Clinton supported America’s capitulation to the IslamoNazis of Iran. This ghastly nuclear deal has placed Israel under permanent mortal threat by an incipient nuclear Iran. As for anyone who believes in “snap-back sanctions” or “robust oversight” of Iranian nuclear activity — well, we can only remind them that there is a real world and there is the world of delusion.

The results of Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state have been one disaster after another. From Benghazi to Egypt to Israel, Hillary Clinton enthusiastically embraced and carried out the anti-freedom, pro-Muslim Brotherhood agenda of Barack Obama and the postmodern Democrat-Socialist party.

Seraphic Secret believes in reality.

We recognize the difference between rhetoric and results.

    It’s true that all this happened during Clinton’s tenure, but I’m inclined to think (hope) the decisions were far more Obama’s than hers.

      If you’re Secretary of State and wrong action happens in your area of responsibility, you’re responsible for that. If they happen because of your own choices, that is as it should be. If they happen because your boss overruled you, that is still your responsibility — you acquiesced to those decisions. If you don’t want to be associated with those decisions, the answer is obvious: resign in protest. By staying on the job, you are supporting the decisions.

        Sure, but I’m looking ahead to after the election. There’s a definite possibility that 2017 will see a President Clinton. My point is that she does not necessarily identify with Obama’s policies in these areas, even if she did not resign in protest when serving under him.
