Several Israeli government ministers on Sunday sharply responded to U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over her critical comments on the status of women in Israel and Knesset bills that would restrict left-wing organizations.
Speaking to a closed forum in Washington on Saturday, Clinton criticized recent legislative attempts in Israel to restrict left-wing organizations and expressed shock over growing discrimination against Israeli women. She mentioned cases of IDF soldiers leaving during performances of female singers and the fact that females sit in the back of buses in certain places in Israel. Clinton said that some of these phenomena reminded her of Iran.

This is exactly the double standard that the US and Israel try to keep the people away from knowing. If only the people knew and the MSM reported more about the inconsistencies of the american and israeli regimes then maybe we wouldn't have the problems we have in the world today.
There will come a time when israel will not exist due to its self destructive behavior... it has poked the giant so many times it is bound to get squashed like a bug... I can't wait.

Yes, I agree with one of the ministers. He said government officials should mind their own business.Yep, that's what the U.S. should do. Mind it's own business and leave Israel to its own devices.
