In 1980, six Israelis were killed in a bombing as they were simply walking home on a Friday after Sabbath prayers. Omar al-Hroub, a chemist who assisted in making the bombs with his chemicals, was convicted in the 1980 bombing and served 10 years in prison.
On Tuesday evening, just days after the Islamic terrorist attack in New York, al-Hroub’s wife, Hanan al-Hroub, will deliver a keynote address at a Clinton Global Initiatives dinner. The dinner will take place a few miles away from where a Muslim man planted bombs that injured 29 in New York.
The RNC issued a statement via the deputy communications director, Raj Shah, highly critical of Bill and Hillary Clinton showcasing a convicted terrorist’s wife period let alone in light of the terrorist attack at the hands of another Muslim who planted bombs in New York City.
“In the wake of this weekend’s attacks, granting a platform to the spouse of a terrorist bomb-maker just miles away from where explosives were detonated days ago is an insult to the victims and makes a mockery of the Clinton Foundation.”
Hillary Clinton’s foundation responded with a statement by a top donor and Israeli-American entertainment mogul, Haim Saban who praised the terrorist’s wife as a beacon of light in the world.
“Hanan al-Hroub is a beacon of hope in a part of the world that is very dear to me and in desperate need of more hope. I only wish more people honored her and the cause that she embodies.”
And Hillary wants us to believe that she’s the best choice to lead America in a war against Islamic terrorism, words she has rarely uttered, while she is putting the wife of a convicted Muslim terrorist on center stage of her foundations dinner.
Let that sink in for a moment.
