“It is with humility, determination and boundless confidence in America’s promise that I accept your nomination for President of the United States,” Clinton said, becoming the first women to ever be nominated by a major political party.

“When there are no ceilings, the sky’s the limit,” she said.

While Clinton’s speech was mainly focused on domestic policy and attacking her Republican opponent, billionaire businessman Donald Trump, Clinton did touch on a few foreign policy items, including the Iran nuclear deal and Israel.

“You want a leader who understands we are stronger when we work with our allies around the world and care for our veterans here at home,” Clinton said. “I’m proud that we put a lid on Iran’s nuclear program without firing a single shot,” she added. “Now we have to enforce it, and keep supporting Israel’s security.”

Clinton also spent time reassuring Americans that she would be the right leader to guide America through an uncertain world that has been stung by a number of terror attacks from groups like the Islamic State.

“America’s strength doesn’t come from lashing out,” Clinton said. “Strength relies on smarts, judgment, cool resolve, and the precise and strategic application of power. That’s the kind of Commander-in-Chief I pledge to be.”

    Hillary Clinton says she is for Israel,yet her policy of forcing the Jewish State to retreat to the 1967 borders will result in the death of many Jewish Israelis and possibly the destruction of the entire State.Her Iranian policy is putting the Jewish State at risk of being incinerated.

    “keep supporting Israel”. She’s lying through her teeth. Obama and Clinton have been the worst U.S. administratio supporters of Israel since its re-establishment. Unfortunately, too many American Jews have their heads buried in the sand and will vote for this continuation of the Obama years.

    VOWS from HRC are worth less than nothing, as she is a well-known liar,and has proven to be a serial LIAR.

    So she vows to uphold the deal she made and kept secret from Americans? (and lied about) … the deal that lets Iran off the hook in 10 years? The deal she approved to release 150 billion? The deal made with mullahs who have also lied and scammed and refused to abide by any deals made with USA?

    She was a horrendous, blundering, incompetent Sec of State and will not magically become better as prez. She backed wrong side in Egypt, nearly destroying peace it had with Israel, supported and started a war in LIBYA, voted for IRAQ war before she was against it for political reasons, and has been useless in regard to Syria and ISIS. Let’s not forget her husband’s support for Muslim in Serbian civil war giving a base of ops to Al queda in EU, and bringing “refugees” like the Tsarnov’s mass-murdering Muslims he will import more of than 0blunder. and his failure to stop Bin Laden when he had the chance.
    She sleeps with the enemies of USA, Huma has ties to MB,and she has been bribed for favors by Arab oil money. She dances to the tune of Saudis and Qataris, and SOROS who fund anti-Israel propaganda in USA.

    Jews who still vote Democrat are either delusional or insane or just hate Israel as much as she does.

    Actions speak louder than words.
    Lots of experience does not imply lots of good judgement. Alas!

  • I hope you publish my comments!!!!

  • Greaseberg

    For those who believe Hillary Clinton would protect Israel (or the U.S. for that matter), I have a slightly used bridge in Brooklyn for sale.

    When All Is Said And Done, More Is Said Than Done.

    Actions Speak Louder Than Words.

    A Clinton Pledge lasts about as long as Lemon Pledge.

    While real fiduciaries may indemnify post-mortal events, and Obama has already dhimmi-fied American Jews, I don’t believe a douche like Hillary would ever extend Israel even that tiny “favor.”

  • Yishayahu Hakohen

    Barack Obama also promised to protect Israel security. I’m afraid that Hillary Clinton, like her predecessor, speaks out of both sides of the mouth when it comes to Israel security. Her lip service is cheap, but her actions speak volumes such as in supporting the Iran deal, blaming Israel for going too far in recent the Gaza conflict, and lambasting Israel for allowing the renovation of a hotel in east Jerusalem in 2011. Also, like her predecessor, she has consistently remained silent about Palestinian terrorist murders of innocent Jews.

  • Markus Goeldi

    Hillary Clinton is guilty and is therefore not fit to be Americas president. To uphold the Iran deal is to go against Israel.She is a liar and a deceiver LORD have mercy on America

  • robert davis

    By the way WHERE is the “lid” on iran’s nuclear facilities? iran keeps enriching itzs fissile materiaml and can produce nukes whenever it wants if it’s not already the case probably! As to America’s strength she will never dare use it if necessary ande will accept all the threats iran, Russia, China or other will surely adress ignoring that every time she accepts a provocation a bigger one is in preparation. She ignores it since she accusezs Trump for not ignoring threats. With a president such as fatma Clinton America is done for.

  • Hillary’s rhetoric mesmerizes uninformed Americans that she can support the Obama Iran deal and Israel’s security. By mentioning both nations supportively in the same sentence she can receive a loud applause. She knows she is lying through her teeth. One nation, Iran, has publicly announced the destruction of Israel while the other nation, Israel, is a democratic republic, upholding all nations right to self-determination. These are contradictory positions. Hillary must choose if she is elected president. She is willing to gamble the destruction of Israel in order to support her rhetorical support for the Iran deal. Frankly, liberals, including many American Jews, would like to see Israel destroyed, just to be able to negotiate with Islamic nations more easily. Thank God for Alan Dershowitz! Use your brilliance to call her out!

    Read her mind. If these stupid Jews believe this after my track record as Secretary of State, the Clinton foundations ties to Islam and the fact that my closest confidant gal pal is a jihadist they will believe anything and are to dumb to survive. I mean Israel on the auction block has created a windfall for the foundation. I love Israel, Bill loves Israel, why I think Bill should put on his sunglasses get his saxaphone and play a concert in Israel. He can keep playing that saxaphone and hopefully they will all follow him to the abyss. That’s what she is thinking! Don’t be fooled she is a Wolf in Sheeps clothing.

    Hillary Clinton–is a liar–she hates God and Israel. She is a proven supporter and funder of Islamic terrorism–it was she who helped create ISIS. Her chief aide, one Human Weiner Abedin–is a known Muslim Brotherhood operative. Its impossible to support the Iran deal–which allows and enables the Iranian Islamic terrorists to produce nuclear weapons and to promote and fund global jihad–and be a genuine supporter of Israel. Anyone who believes Hillary C is a good person–lacks critical reasoning skills and discernment–typically these types are abject fools.

  • Anschel

    “Enforcing the Iran nuclear agreement” and “keep supporting Israel’s security” — whether these statements are contradictory or consistent depends entirely what actions are to be done under what precise circumstances. In other words, “the devil is in the details.”

    While the statements together sound blandly good politically, they mean absolutely nothing until tested by the crucible of experience. My guess is that Clinton would handle this better than Obama but not as well as I would like or think necessary. It is not clear that Trump would do any better or worse.

    Another tormenting roller coaster of angst. Israel must do whatever it must to survive and survive well. One cannot do tikkun olam without first ensuring one’s survival first and foremost. (Some seem to forget this axiom.)


    And just how does she figure on doing both of those things. Does anyone really believe that someone who has taken hundreds, yes hundreds, of millions of dollars from the Saudis is concerned about the safety of Israel, or anybody else for that matter?

  • enufizenuf

    Hillary is first and foremost a liar, secondly an absolute anti-Semite and Israel-hater, thirdly a complete foreign policy incompetent, and lastly either a psychopath or a sociopath – they overlap some, you know.

  • HP Benson

    Words are cheap, especially with corrupt politicians running for office. She’ll hit reality when and if she is elected: “How do I keep my money flowing in and still get re-elected?” “We must keep that Arab oil flow coming or the electorate will turn on me and I won’t get a second term!” and on and on. Let’s see which jerk wins in November.

  • sam cohen

    I don’t believe her nether should you!

  • Kaplan

    That Iran ‘deal’ was designed to be unenforceable.

  • Sherwin Cerini

    Any Jew who believes anything this pathological liar says and supports her is way beyond stupid.

  • David Sabghir

    Upholding the Iran Deal which is filled with holes is the opposite of standing up for Israel’s Security, especially where this administration has just turned down an appropriation for Israel’s defense.

    She is totally untrustworthy and any Jew who believes that she is good for Israel is thinking foolishly. As the headline of yesterday put it: Obama 3.0!

  • Michael

    Which Iran deal? The one that we were told about or the one in the secret addendums we are slowly finding out about?
