Renowned Israeli-American businessman and Hillary Clinton confidant, Haim Saban, on Sunday described the newly-announced presidential candidate as a true friend of Israel and said she would get along fine with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Saban told Channel 2 interviewers that, though Clinton never spared the Israeli premier any deserved criticism, “Her relationship with Netanyahu has had its ups and downs, but I think they will work well together if she becomes the next President of the United States.” Saban added that, “she will be a great president for the United States, for Israel particularly, and for the world in general.”

Saban did not only endorse Clinton’s position on Israel, but had general praise for her presidential candidacy. He said, “After eight years, a few of which she spent as a successful adviser to the president, and years of service in the Senate, there is no candidate that can come close to her level of skills and experience.”

He also claimed that, “from the bottom of her heart, she wants to serve the public,” adding that “from the day she finished law school, she has worked as a woman of the public. This is what is in her soul, and because of that, no one should be surprised that she decided to run in the end.”

If she wins the Democratic primaries, and then the general presidential elections, Hillary Clinton would become the first female president in American history, a matter which Saban addressed as well. He noted that some Americans might not be ready to accept such a reality, but that “we should not dwell on the issues that separate men and women.” He said that Clinton’s “being a woman is neither a plus nor a minus. The [real] question is what kind of person she is, and what her qualifications are to be president.”

Regarding those, Saban said that Clinton’s qualifications, “speak for themselves.”

    Where are the other Democratic contenders?? Some choices Americans are getting!

    Hillary is no friend of Israel. Her close ties to Muslim Brothherhood operatives (foremost among them, Huma Abedin), and the Clinton Foundation’s acceptance of huge “donations” (payoffs) from virulent enemies of Israel (foremost among them, the Saudis), raise serious questions about whether her flowery words about Israel are anything more than political lies … Like so much else about her background.

  • Skills and experience count. Judgment counts more.

    She will break rules to win and seems proud of it. She will use the very identity politics her husband said was poison.

    She IS yesterday and Democrats show their poor judgment by having no one else to counter her.
