Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton expressed outrage after an Orthodox-Jewish newspaper photo-shopped her out of a photo of top officials at the White House, the Associated Press reported on Thursday, citing newly released emails belonging to the former secretary of state.

Clinton sent an email on May 8, 2011, saying she was outraged that the New York-based Yiddish newspaper Der Zeitung airbrushed her and another woman out of a famous photograph of officials gathered in the White House Situation Room watching the raid on notorious Al-Qaeda terrorist Osama Bin Laden.

Clinton wrote in the email: “The Jerusalem Post reported today that a NY Hasidic paper Der Zeitung published the sit room photo w/o me (or Audrey T) photoshopped out perhaps because no woman should be in such a place of power or that I am dressed immodestly!!” The subject line of the email was, “Unbelievable”.

The message was sent to Clinton’s daughter, Chelsea Clinton, and her aides, including Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin.

    Hilary Clinton should be forced to excuse herself from the presidential candidacy. She is protected by the government re her private emails. A regular citizen would be in deep trouble! She has a nerve to complain about the air- brushing of the photo. Her donors are giving millions in the hope she wins (G-D forbid) so they can benefit! Sickening.

    Mrs. Clinton’s outrage is justified. How dare any publication, religious or not, distort history and remove our secretary of state for either modesty or their disdain of women. This is America not 17th century Poland. I am an assimilated jewish senior, I always back the position of the orthodox BUT this is outrageous and demeaning. Mrs. Clinton’s son-in-law and in-laws are all jewish and proud members of our community, this was a slap in the face of a friend and wife of a former president. This is a shanda, not for the goyim but for inzerer yidden.

    Oh well I would photo shop her out of any of my pictures also.

    Why is some obscure yiddish newspaper that no one reads of any interest to the Secretary of State of the United States? What the fsck is wrong with this person? Just on this basis, she should be removed from any political office. She’s obviously brain damaged in a very disturbing way.

    What Max and Sydney Blumenthal don’t approve? Great work JP the fascist american media is interfering with our election and did with yours too totally illegal! Way to push back! She is gonna be known as wife of impeached ex-president bill.

    Altering history is basically perpetrating a lie, which is against the Ten Commandments of Jewish law.

    To eliminate women from history, that’s appalling. Why would anyone want to be part of a religion that doesn’t accept women in power. Golda Meier was the head of Israel for goodness sake.

    If anything should be eliminated from history, it should be anachronistic anti-female fanatics, whether Jewish or Muslim.

    Are Jewish women to wear a burqa? How sickening.

  • Gee

    Get over yourself b*tch. The world does not revolve around Hillary Clinton, no matter how much she thinks it does.

    As a secular Jew, I am always embarrassed by the primitive costums and beliefs of Orthodox Jews. This is another example of the rigid stupidity of such people whose lives are ruled by ancient superstitions. Does an all- powerful Creator of the infinite universe really care about whether you turn a light switch on or off on the sabbath ? Or having the photo of females in your newspaper? Really? We are walking on the Moon , for goodness sake…..and these brain- washed loons still carry on as if the world was flat ! OMG !

    aside from the obvious narcissism and lack of cultural sensitivity, this also brings up an interesting question: if and when hillary is elected president, will the ultra-frum papers continue blanking out her picture?

    clinton aside, the newspaper editors are idiots if the only reason that they photoshopped clinton out was because of her sole qualification for higher office, her gender.

    I don’t care for clinton; how could anyone? what has she accomplished?…I mean, except for choosing a certain set of chromosomes? oh, and she wrote legislation to name a highway, a post office and a park (yeah, she added her name to legislation written by others, but this is what she, herself, came up with in 8 years. not very impressive, is it?)

    but, clinton aside, the newspaper editors are idiots (though I’m sure they’re admirable in many ways) if the only reason that they photoshopped clinton out was because of her sole qualification for higher office, her gender.
