I sort of remember back in 2009 president Obama's team that would allow me to stand in front of a quote religious symbol when he gave -- speech.
At Georgetown -- laughing but Georgetown University.
-- -- they said they want -- -- neutral background so to remedy the situation they blatantly covered up that -- crossed that would have appeared directly behind them.
As we told you earlier our commander in chief what he did today standing under a -- showing Yasser Arafat yes the Yasser Arafat.
Known terrorist joining me now -- reaction is former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani.
Eighteen years ago you had a little experience and yeah.
Years ago I threw Yasser Arafat out of the UN fifty.
Concert and Beethoven's.
Ninth symphony to the interview before that Avery Fisher Hall he was specifically not invited and we didn't.
Want to invite dictators terrorists and murderers to this concerts and he wasn't invited him -- a -- -- -- the ticket from somebody.
And I had my chief of staff in the police thrown out it was -- eyes on the front page of all the newspaper it was a great day in the New York Times.
Literally castigated me -- for.
For actually -- treating him I was such disrespect my response was when I was US attorney had investigated him.
For the murder of Leon Klinghoffer on the Achille Lauro and he ordered that murder.
Of a Jewish man who was in a wheelchair who was thrown into the Mediterranean.
That was only one of 26 Americans that he murdered I'm not I'm not telling you this.
From the top of my head I spent 23 years investigating -- -- US attorney.
Had papers issued so that he came to United States we could pick them up.
That kept him out of the United States for a long time during the Reagan administration good you know I Billy Cunningham used that term that he's -- gave birth to bin Laden and the total phony.
-- and and one of the biggest mistakes we made this goes back starting a little bit with the end of the Bush Administration completely in the Clinton administration.
They bought into the following this of Yasser Arafat.
The man didn't was not a guy who wasn't terrorist who turned around -- the terrorists to third turned on the big thief.
His wife is sitting this out of France with hundreds of millions of dollars.
That's a hundred and the -- and that is so our federal by the way Hillary Clinton -- -- belief that he was a nation sees her original Palestinian Authority is in the shape it's in today is.
Arafat stole the money.
That was going to the Palestinian Authority in other words so that given by the United States and our coaches me now when the president and I -- stands there with this -- Picture back from it says to me.
Position -- have any sense of history doesn't know what the heck he's dealing with this is a man who has murdered at least 27 Americans.
That that doesn't want that can tip the iceberg if I can count he he is one of the people who invent did not have a modern Islamic extremist terrorism.
And he stole hundreds of millions if not billions of dollars from his own people while he watched them starve and blamed it on Israel.
I don't know with a laugh or cry when I think of the same administration go to a Catholic university.
Demanding they want a neutral zone the man in the cross look at the picture the cross being covered when he spoke there so Jesus is an embarrassment and Arafat isn't.
I thought I got I'm having a -- I'm -- -- -- really hard time with that.
But I mean the reality is president -- -- states should never be giving a -- a speech.
With a terrorist.
And a a -- Of international proportions behind him but it should it shows his complete ignorance of what's going on on the ground.
There in Egypt did it in the end in -- -- in Egypt and Palestine in Israel it also shows that he has just moral equivalence between Israel.
And the Palestinian Authority.
-- -- know that the Palestinian Authority.
Is it -- cut is a country wants to be a country in which there's been tremendous amount of corruption tremendous amount of -- -- thousands of rockets into Israel every day so thousands so that doesn't mean we shouldn't try.
To bring them along you do that's who honestly you don't do it through falling into their traps by being manipulated by the Dubai being honest with and you say to them.
We're very happy to have two countries.
However we're not gonna establish a terrorist country I'm sorry.
We're not -- -- abolition of the corrupt country on the -- of one of our strongest allies now you wanna prove to us you can have an honest government you wanna prove to us you can -- of the terrorism.
God bless you we -- to -- -- -- country keeps asking it until it sessions but that that this is what could give a thousand concessions as I can help with a Palestinian Authority.
The problem has been with the Palestinian Authority all along we gave all this money to Arafat he stole the money.
Arafat is sitting -- the south of France with the money that was intended to help those people.
Well -- his moral compass because I look at this I think that -- our president's moral compass is spewed.
It's quiet I don't know that we can't say war on terror man caused disaster overseas can -- I can't America's -- I get -- president dilemma and -- I can't I can't judge is his morality I've gotten not capable of this I can.
Figure it's the -- -- is ignorance of the history of the Middle East is astounding.
To not know who and what Arafat really books.
Two to buy into this sort of politically correct silliness about Arafat.
I -- Clinton gave Arafat everything he wanted to get peace in the Middle East and Arafat told them no.
Because Arafat didn't want peace he couldn't make any money from peace so we extended the thing into the -- into the Bush Administration.
And -- all of that was because she would have lost power.
If he had made peace and he would have been able to steal that but that's embarrassing and how do you think the radical Islamist world and it again he was -- he still given money to Morsi.
-- a guy that if we get an F sixteens and billions of dollars to a guy that.
Thinks the Israelis are descendants -- -- -- -- -- I would think that I would think it's you know we think they think they have and the man that they've been manipulated that they they put pull the -- were sympathetic towards them I don't think he's sympathetic to -- my I ice he's not even done.
A -- had -- what I did ignorant of the ferret and I even ignorant.
I think I think he's ignorant of the facts and he displays ignorant I don't believe he could be that bad ignorant I it's impossible to be that -- maybe he doesn't accept these facts I don't know maybe doesn't accept the fact that that that Arafat killed 27.
Americans may -- he believes Arafat was a converted.
You know you can be a terrorist and you can turn it around actually expect that that's happened in history with Arafat that didn't happen now with Arafat he went from being terrorists remain a terrorist then became a master crook.
All right well we'll also that's history that's the -- is -- that kicking about it Avery Fisher Hall is also one of the proudest things they ever did -- for yet I thought history proved me correct absolutely a 100% all right mr.
mayor thanks for being reckless and.
