Clinton Wanted to Incite Palestinian Unrest to Force Israel to Concede
LEO’S TAKE: Even in an administration full of scandals and mortifyingly bad decisions (reset with Russia, letting Mubarak take the fall, Benghazi, Syria, etc), this might be the worst of them all. The suggestion that Hillary wanted to incite Palestinian violence (which is what unrest politely refers to) using the money of the ultra wealthy (and Democrat fundraisers) is disturbing at best.

Former secretary of state Hillary Clinton considered a secret plan created by her then-advisers to foment unrest among Palestinian citizens and spark protests in order to push the Israeli government back to the negotiating table, according to emails released as part of the investigation into the Democratic presidential frontrunner’s private email server.
In a Dec, 18, 2011, email, former U.S. ambassador to Israel Thomas Pickering suggested that Clinton consider a plan to restart then-stalled peace negotiations by kickstarting Palestinian demonstrations against Israel.
Pickering described the effort as a potential “game changer in the region,” recommending that the United States undertake a clandestine campaign to generate unrest. Clinton requested that his email be printed.
