What Bill Clinton Said About Al Qaeda

President Clinton was at the Kennedy School of Government on Friday. Here’s what he said about Al Qaeda and Mayor Bloomberg of New York.

Dore Gold, Israel’s former ambassador to the United Nations and the author of “Hatred’s Kingdom: How Saudi Arabia Supports the New Global Terrorism”, said that Al Qaeda grew more brazen as the peace negations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority intensified. He cited the Oslo Accords (1993), the Gaza-Jericho Agreement (1995), the Hebron Agreement (1997), Wye River Agreement (1998), and Camp David negotiations (2000) as examples of peace deals which coincided with Al Qaeda’s growth and early attacks in Saudi Arabia, on the U.S. embassies in Africa, on the U.S.S. Cole and the World Trade Center. “During the 1990s, the Clinton Administration dedicated unprecedented resources in trying to resolve the Israel-Palestinian conflict,” Mr. Gold said. “Yet in those very same years, Al Qaeda grew and expanded its operations. This history proves there is no correlation between Israeli-Palestinian peace efforts and the rage that feeds the growth of Al Qaeda.”
