Bill Clinton: Rabin Would Have Approved of Chelsea Marrying a Jew

clintonIf the Israelis and Palestinians cut a peace deal, Syria likely would ally itself with the West over Iran, and Lebanon would be truly independent, Bill Clinton said. The former president also warned that Israel will need friends in the region for a future when attacks from Gaza are conducted not with crude, inaccurate rockets but with rockets that inevitably will make use of technological advances to stage GPS-like precision attacks.

Clinton spoke at a memorial service in New York on Thursday aboard the U.S.S. Intrepid commemorating the 15th anniversary of the assassination of Israeli Prime Minister Yitzchak Rabin. The late prime minister recognized early on that demographics in the Holy Land made a Palestinian state necessary to preserve Israel’s democratic and Jewish character, Clinton said.

Calling the day Rabin was shot “one of the saddest days of my life,” Clinton also shared personal remembrances of Rabin, who was killed on the night of Nov. 4, 1995 after a peace rally in Tel Aviv. Clinton said he thinks of Rabin all the time, including five minutes before he walked down the aisle at the wedding of his daughter, Chelsea, to Marc Mezvinsky, her Jewish husband. Clinton said he imagined having a conversation with Rabin, who would have said Clinton finally got something right by having his daughter marry a Jewish guy.

Recalling the moments before the famous White House lawn handshake in 1993 between Rabin and Yasser Arafat, Clinton quoted Rabin as saying, “I’ll shake his hand as long as I don’t have to kiss him.”

  3. What Clinton is saying is really absurd because in the Middle East everyone knows that you can’t possibly predict, especially when it comes to the Israeli Palestinian conflict, a conflict which has the smaller people called Palestinians, backed by a billion Muslims world wide, and this Muslim population that controls the Palestinian maneuvering capabilities, has crossed out the entire Jewish history regarding Eretz Yisroel, and so the Muslims wil never change their spots

  4. What Clinton is saying is really absurd because in the Middle East everyone knows that you can’t possibly predict, especially when it comes to the Israeli Palestinian conflict, I mean we all know he hates the current Prime Minister Netanyahu with a passion considering how he lied to him over Polard, and so this could very will just be a shtech to Netanyahu, but and regardless of his true intentions, a conflict which has the smaller people called Palestinians, backed by over a billion Muslims world wide, and this Muslim population that controls the Palestinian maneuvering capabilities, has crossed out the entire Jewish history regarding Eretz Yisroel, and so the Muslims wil never change their spots.
    Now as far as this issue of marrying a non jew well Mr Rabin could approve of it as much as he wants, fact remains that our Torah which Mr Rabin knew so little of, disproves of it and so what haskumu is that? it’s like getting a haskumu from a Doctor to be allowed to shecht meat, I mean that’s absurd and even Clinton should know that this analogy is stupid because even his mishumid son in law who knows at least a distorted view of yidishkeit from the Reform Jewish religion will tell him that Rabin knew nothing even compared to their standards!

  5. For once we agree. Rabin y”s would have approved. The other statements by both parties are so twisted and wrong there’s no way to address them.

  6. Bill, all I can say is “shalom, chaver.” If you think that Syria will ally with the West over Iran, you are really far gone.
