Clinton would have taken up arms for Israel, eh?

Drudge posted a link to this rather um... interesting "flashback"... Clinton says he would have died for Israel

WASHINGTON: Former US President Bill Clinton who many Arab thoughts was more even-handed on the Palestine question than his predecessors shocked many when he asserted in Toronto last week that had Israel been attacked by Iraq or Iran during his presidency, he would have been ready to "grab a rifle, get in a ditch and fight and die."

"The Israelis know that if the Iraqi or the Iranian army came across the Jordan River, I would personally grab a rifle, get in a ditch, and fight and die," Clinton told the crowd at a fund-raising event for a Toronto Jewish charity Monday.

Say what?

Weird-city, man.

What an unusual thing to say, especially for a former POTUS.
