Hillary Clinton has sent sharply worded messages to Israel over the past week, lambasting Jerusalem for throwing obstacles in the way of humanitarian aid to Gaza, reports Haaretz. The move isn't sitting well with Jewish leaders back home, notes CBS News. “I liked her a lot more as a senator from New York,” said Assemblyman Dov Hikind of Brooklyn. “Now, I wonder as I used to wonder who the real Hillary Clinton is.”
As a senator, Clinton described herself as “a very strong supporter of Israel.” Now some feel betrayed. "I am very surprised, frankly, at this statement from the United States government and from the secretary of state," said Mortimer Zuckerman, publisher of the Daily News. Clinton is due to arrive in Israel on Tuesday to press her case.
