I observed first hand her commitment to peace and justice during the
presidency of Bill Clinton, when Jordan's King Hussein, my late husband, and I
worked closely with the Clintons in an attempt to achieve a Middle East peace.
When they take office next year, I know that President-elect Obama and she
quickly will begin looking for ways to bring security to Israel and justice to
Palestinians, including four to six million Palestinian refugees.
In the Senate, Mrs. Clinton has worked hard to protect other displaced
populations, including those from Iraq and Darfur. . . . .
Sen. Clinton has introduced legislation to help displaced Iraqis. In the
Obama administration she and her colleagues will have to come up with a
comprehensive plan to help Iraqis return to a safe and secure Iraq as U.S.
troops withdraw. This will be a challenge, but she understands that displaced
Iraqis threaten the stability of Iraq, as well as the stability of the region,
and potentially beyond. . . .
As Secretary of State, Mrs. Clinton will face many challenges, but I know
from personal experience that she is up to them all.

international abortions through a revocation of the Mexico City Policy and
restoring funding to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA). . . .
Defamation is a tool of the anti-choice establishment. Its campaign
against UNFPA was one of its most sinister. . . .
Hillary has been a big supporter of UNFPA, and for good reason. UNFPA . . . provide[s] lifesaving interventions in the reproductive field: delivering babies, creating healthy births, ensuring that women are well enough to become mothers again, and giving families the methods to space children . . . .
