Hank Sheinkopf: Bill Clinton Wrong, Netanyahu Can Make Peace

By    |   Tuesday, 16 Sep 2014 07:17 PM

Don't believe former President Bill Clinton when he says Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu isn't the man to negotiate a peace agreement with the Palestinians, says Democratic political consultant Hank Sheinkopf.

"This is the American Democratic idiocy that goes on," Sheinkopf said Tuesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"Which is, any Jew who's on the right and stands there with a rifle is not to be trusted, but a Jew who's a bookkeeper who gets slapped around and is on the left can be trusted. It's nuttiness.

"The fact is, it was Menachem Begin — not any of the previous prime ministers, who were certainly on the left — [who negotiated] our peace with the Egyptians."

In a C-SPAN video showing Clinton at Sen. Tom Harkin's steak fry in Iowa, a unidentified spectator tells the 42nd president: "Netanyahu himself said that he does not want peace. If we don't force him to make peace, we will not have peace."
 
Clinton responds: "First of all, I agree with that. But in 2000, [former Israeli Prime Minister] Ehud Barak, I got him to agree to something that I'm not sure I could have gotten [former Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak] Rabin to agree to, and Rabin was murdered for giving land to the Palestinians."

"But Netanyahu is not the guy," the spectator interrupts.

"I agree with that," Clinton says.

But Sheinkopf, a Newsmax contributor and president of Sheinkopf Communications, says Netanayu can broker such a deal and pooh-poohs those who rip the Jewish state as antagonistic.

"Like if you stop throwing rockets, you might have a chance to sit down and talk. This is kind of a nonsense argument, which if only those Israelis would stop allowing themselves to be blown up all day long, it'd be great," Sheinkopf said.

"If only they would tell these terrorists not to do these terrible things. The Israelis don't control this."
