Thought for the Day: Bill Clinton on Hamas

You know things are bad when Bill Clinton is the voice of moral clarity in the Democratic Party. Here’s what he said in 2016:

“I killed myself to give the Palestinians a state. I had a deal they turned down that would have given them all of Gaza… between 96%-97% of the West Bank, compensating land in Israel, you name it.”

“Hamas is really smart. When they decide to rocket Israel, they insinuate themselves in the hospitals, in the schools, in the highly populous areas, and they are smart. They said they try to put the Israelis in a position of either not defending themselves or killing innocents. They’re good at it. They’re smart. They’ve been doing this a long time.”

Why can’t anyone in the Biden Administration point this out to the American public (and to the Palestinian Authority)? It has long been reported second-hand that the person Clinton hated the most from his time as president was not Ken Starr, but Yassir Arafat, for turning down the deal that would have gained Clinton the Nobel Peace Prize and redeemed his morally stained presidency.
