Anybody have a link to the Hillary Clinton video in which she chants "Hamas" with her fist raised in the air?
Hillary and Hamas
The first lady has a long record of association with Islamic militants.

In the spring of 1996, I had lunch with a senior adviser to the Clinton Administration and to Hillary. I asked him if there was any concern over the
article I had published in The Wall Street Journal that revealed that both the president and first lady had hosted militant Islamic groups, which had,
at the White House, proclaimed their support for terrorism.
"This administration believes in a big tent." the adviser responded. "Besides, we've gotten no flak, so why should we back off?"
Last week the first lady finally got some flak. As a result, Mrs. Clinton announced at an Oct. 25 news conference that she was returning $50,000 in
campaign contributions raised by the American Muslim Alliance, an anti-Israeli group whose leaders have sanctioned terrorism, published anti-Semitic
statements and repeatedly hosted conferences that were forums for denunciations of Jews and exhortations to wage jihad. Mrs. Clinton claimed she was
unaware that the group was behind the fund-raiser, held in Boston in June. The first lady also revealed she was returning a $1,000 contribution from
Abdulrahman Alamoudi, an official of the American Muslim Council, who has openly championed Hamas and defended other terrorists, including those
behind the World Trade Center bombing.
TERRORIST TIES OK AT WHITE HOUSE
By Steven Emerson
SPECIAL TO THE TRIBUNE-REVIEW
Imagine the president of the United States inviting to the White House the comrades of one of the top international terrorists in the world, a
terrorist chieftain who has orchestrated mass murder against scores of innocent civilians, including American children. Or visualize a picture of
first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton warmly greeting a top leader of an American branch of a radical Islamic terrorist front group. Or think of the vice
president of the United States happily embracing a top Islamic militant leader who has championed the terrorist mastermind behind the World Trade
Center bombing, a plot that was designed to kill 50,000 American people.
Unfortunately, you do not need a wild imagination to conjure up these images. These meetings actually occurred within the past year, as evidenced by
the photos that accompany this article. These pictures were reprinted from the pages of radical Islamic periodicals.
Although the administration of President Bill Clinton has publicly touted its war on international terrorism, which has included new counter-terrorism
laws and resources for the FBI, it has simultaneously courted and embraced militant Islamic groups in the United States. These groups have openly
promoted, supported and championed Islamic terrorist groups that have targeted Jews, Christians and moderate Muslims around the globe. Indeed, during
the past year, the Clinton administration has openly welcomed into the White House known U.S.-based representatives of foreign Islamic militants -
even arranging special receptions for these guests.
