If there was an elephant in the room during the presidential debates that the candidates dared not speak about, it is Iran and the Israel-Palestine conflict, and the Israel Lobby.
This article was posted by Cecilie Surasky of Muzzlewatch, a subsidiary of Jewish Voice for Peace that uncovers censorship and false propaganda about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and Palestinian aspirations for their own sovereign state, a few weeks ago on Thursday, Jan 10th, 2008.

No Democratic representative in Congress is more beholden to the Israel Lobby than Hillary Clinton, going as far as to head up the propaganda war against the Palestinians, which casts them as "terrorists" rather than a subjugated people living under military occupation for the past 40 years. During that time period, Palestinian lands have been taken by various means of ethnic cleansing, including house and farm/orchard demolitions and even outright killing. Every year since 2000, four to six hundred Palestinians in the territories, more than half of them civilians, have been killed by Israel armed forces using American-made weapons and munitions. Since 2000, almost a thousand Palestinian children have been buried.
Hillary's propaganda war against the Palestinians, through her dishonest congressional actions like sponsorship of the Anti-Palestinian Terrorist Act, has even extended to Palestinian children, who are also terrorists, according to the many propaganda memes she has propagated on behalf of the Israel Lobby.
This scholarly piece by Lawrence of Cyberia (reprinted by permission; links available at the site) trashes the lie, often repeated by Hillary Clinton inside of the Senate, that Palestinian children are being trained as terrorists. In this matter and other, Hillary allows herself to be used as a conduit for right wing Israeli propaganda.
