Dr. Susan Rice, the US envoy at the United Nations, has received the approval of the powerful Jewish lobby groups to replace the outgoing secretary of state, Hillary Clinton. It’s expected Obama will chose her over the other hopeful – Senator John Kerry whose both grand parents were Jewish.
Abraham Foxman, national director of Jewish lobby group ADL has endorsed Rice by calling her a “gladiator fighting to defend Israel in hostile atmosphere of the United Nations”.
Rabbi Julie Schonfeld, executive vice-president of the Rabbinical Assembly, representing over 400 rabbis, said: “It’s moving to hear how her relation to Israel resonated with the rabbis”.
Both Susan Rice and Hillary Clinton are members of the powerful Israeli advocacy group Council on Foreign Relations, headed by Zionist Jew Dr. Richard Haass.
On Tuesday, Susan Rice was grilled by three ‘Israel-Firsters’, Senators John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Kelly Ayotte for the merder of US ambassador in Benghazi, Christopher Stevens in September 2012 was not an act of terrorism but by the anti-Islam movie ‘Innocence of Muslims’. However, most analyst believe that it’s an Israeli Mossad false flag operation to set a war between the US and Iran. After the meeting, McCain said Rice is “unqualified” for the position. He suggested Sarah Palin could have been a better choice.
