Asked About Support for Israel, Clinton Says Political Campaigns ‘Don’t Reflect the United States’

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary ClintonQuestioned in Tunisia on Sunday about the trustworthiness of political candidates that “run toward the Zionist lobbies to get their support in the states” but then “come to show their support for countries like Tunisia and Egypt,” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton reassured an Arab audience that these candidates don’t necessarily mean what they say.

There are “a lot of things are said in political campaigns that should not bear a lot of attention,” Clinton said, according to Fox News.
“There are comments made that certainly don’t reflect the United States, don’t reflect our foreign policy, don’t reflect who we are as a people,” Clinton said.

“I mean, if you go to the United States, you see mosques everywhere, you see Muslim-Americans everywhere. That’s the fact. So I would not pay attention to the rhetoric,” she said, referring to remarks by the Republican presidential candidates.

Clinton’s comments come in advance of the March 4-6 annual conference for the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), the pro-Israel lobby in the U.S.
