Emails reveal Clinton has known about BDS since 2011
On Friday, the State Department released 7,000 more pages of emails belonging to Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton.
One of the email chains included a conversation between Clinton and her old friend Betsy Ebeling , who shared a Chicago Sun-Times article about a Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign at DePaul University in May 2011. At the time, Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) at DePaul successfully ran a campaign to ban Sabra Hummus from being sold in the university’s dining facilities.
“I love Sabra hummus — whatever that means!” Clinton responded, to which Ebeling suggested that she might want to show Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu the article.
Ebeling went on to talk about the full moon, to which Clinton responded, “But, even the allure of Mother Moon in all her glory is unlikely to impress the PM. Everything is s000 hard and not nearly as gratifying as planting your garden,” Clinton wrote.
30,000 emails sent during Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State are intended to be made public by next year, half have already been released by the State Department.
