Consider two political acts of conscience. One is a profile in political courage by a foreign diplomat who lost his job because he defended Israel. The other involves Hillary Clinton. Andres Roemer Slomianski was fired Tuesday as Mexico’s ambassador to UNESCO, days after he walked out of a meeting rather than vote, as ordered, for a Palestinian resolution denying Judaism’s connection to its holiest sites, the Temple Mount and Western Wall in Jerusalem. The resolution passed, 24-6, with 26 abstentions — even though it has been denounced by UNESCO’s own director as well as Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon. Roemer had planned to resign but was dissuaded by other ambassadors. Still, he was summoned home “for consultations” and dismissed, on the grounds that he’d made his dissent public. The son of a refugee from Nazi Europe, Roemer stood up for principle by refusing to raise his hand for what he knew was a deliberate attempt to rewrite history. Then there’s Hillary. New WikiLeaks e-mails show Clinton’s top campaign officials pushing back against a suggestion by one aide that she mention support for Israel at rallies, starting with her campaign kickoff speech. “We shouldn’t have Israel at public events,” messaged campaign manager Robby Mook, citing fears it might upset “especially Dem activists” — the leftists who have pushed the party away from its traditional support for the Jewish state. Asked pollster Joel Benenson: “Why would we call out Israel in public events now?” Eventually, Team Clinton settled on leaving any mention of Israel to “when she’s with donors” — meaning behind closed doors, away from public view. One person was willing to risk his job to publicly defend the truth. The other avoided speaking out publicly — because it might threaten her chance to win the job she so desperately wants.
