On GPS Sunday: Hillary Clinton discusses Russia, the Middle East, Iran and more

Watch "Fareed Zakaria GPS," Sundays at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET on CNN

On GPS this Sunday: Fareed speaks with former first lady and U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton about her recently published memoir Hard Choices, how the U.S. and Europe should respond to the downing of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17, the ongoing unrest in the Middle East and how the world views America.

“I don't agree with that assessment about alleging war crimes. I think that the Israelis are in a very difficult position,” Clinton says. “Hamas, we know, embeds missiles, embeds command and control units in civilian areas. Now, some of that is just the geography. It's a very small area, very densely populated, but some of that is a deliberate choice by Hamas.”

“And I believe that between the warnings that Israelis give, sometimes as far ahead as four hours so that people could be moved, and also the Israelis' very deliberate efforts to avoid civilian casualties, I don’t think that is an accurate or fair characterization of what the Israelis are trying to do.

“Now, having said that, too many people have died and too many of them are clearly innocent civilians, even children. The Israelis know that.”

    I just heard Stephen Hadley the National Security Advisor for President bush speak. TOTAL psychopath killer. He is of the same ilk as Cheney & Rumsfeld. The WMD twins who destroyed much of the Middle East. Bush can go #}}#%% himself also. It's crazy how they justify the slaughter and asymmetrical devastation. Israel started this new conflict NOT Hamas. See Jake Tapper the Lead.

    Thank you President Obama for saying the Israeli slaughter is unacceptable... Good for you. You made a convert to the Democratic Party.

    Mark Regev is a psychopath and Wolf Blitzer is his enabler. The terrorists are the Israelis.

      Wolf marches BB Netanyahu and his war crimes cabinet out every day to let them say the same lies over and over again. Terrorists Human Shields Criminals bla bla bla
      Obama is no longer buying into this.

    I just heard Dan Senor speaking on Erin Burnett's show, Another Israeli disillusion mass murder type blaming the victims for fighting back. It's the 24-7 mantra coming from "Psycho-ville Israel". Israeli pens in millions of people into tiny spaces and blames them for fighting amongst civilians. It's absolutely BIZARRE ! The IDF want's Hamas fighters to stand out in the open.... where ever that is .... and get instantly vaporized by the tremendous war machine provided by the US to Israel. I love the other crazy stuff the Israelis put out there by saying "Wouldn't the US fight back if Mexico launched missiles into US boarders ?" ..... NO because we don't oppress MEXICO ... Why would they ?

    Amazing the spin on the cease fire incident. I didn't know that when you capture an enemy combatant engaging the nenmy it is called kidnapping. You learn something new every day....

    And I didn't know that Hamas ever said it wouldn't protect it's military tunnels if Israel came by to explode them. I didn't know !!

    Even more baffling is why CNN talks to Allen Dershowitz about the fairness of the conflict. He's Jewish and an Israeli dual citizen with a condo in the West Bank. Just what did you think he was going to say ? BTW he was VERY rude this morning with Mark... Mark was great.

    Let's examine the Israeli policy of trading 1000 Palestinians for 1 Israeli soldier...... That's what the Israelis think the human value is of anyone other than themselves...and they will kill in those numbers to satisfy their lust for property. They are the terrorists and that's why the Palestinians hate them so much. Fareed ... this is just pure analysis of the facts.

    Don Lemon is kissing up to the boss & Obama... He is completely biased in his coverage of the Israeli Palestinian war. He gives kid gloves to his Israeli guests...every grace... but interrupts and interrogates the PLO Hamas leader in Qatar. Makes fun of him too by making a vicious cowardice reference. REALLY. Hey Don....how is it ok for you to judge others from a comfortable position. Maybe he is far away so he doesn't get murdered. Israel is LYING & MURDERING and you are helping them. You are sick...

    Imagine this spin coming out of Israel.... capturing soldiers for hostage release is unspeakable but killing entire villages is so sad but necessary to revenge the missing soldier. Hmmmm who looks worse Hamas vs, Israel ....
    Listen to "Psycho Regev" from Israel....lying through his crooked teeth about who did what and when. The report is out ... Hamas defended themselves .... You guys probably killed him yourself to get to keep 1000 POWs.

    So......Realty check. Israel does not show up in Egypt. They never did because it is not in their best interests. Next, why would any nation kill so many people because someone was taken prisoner ? The person is ALIVE... not SHOT. That does not make any rational sense. Israel then KILLS that Israeli POW on purpose to create the excuse to murder more Palestinian civilians.

    Here's another REALITY check. The DEMOCRATS make a tremendous humanitarian issue about the Central American children fleeing their countries because of violence. They call it a disaster of incredible proportions.... Yet they back the Israelis with tremendous weapons and recently took the time to send more ammo. These things kill children... I guess though that doesn't translate to votes... I don't even want to talk about those vile Republicans cheering on the slaughter.

    President Obama.... If you are the man you say you are ..... do not send any military relief to Israel. If you do, you are an accomplice to war crimes and brutal murder. Remember that.

    The crazies from Israel to include "BB" Netanyahu & Regev murder the ALIVE POW and blame Hamas for his death. F16's blew up the entire area killing scores of people to include the young STUPID Israeli Lt. That kid was ALIVE and doing very bad things. Now he's dead.

    Oh.... Now the story changes because they figured out killing their own soldier looks a bit ridiculous. Lt. Goldin was killed in a suicide bomb.... hmmmm. But you were so certain he was alive... You told Obama a lie.. Hey Don Lemon, you criticized Hamas of not knowing what is going on. Seems ISRAEL is the country who doesn't get it right.

    Seems Netanyahu & Lt. Col. Learner have decided to stop talking and quit helping the Palestinian cause. It's called the "Sales Pet" from the movie "Tommy Boy" and it amounts to talking too much and screwing up the thing you are trying to accomplish. HAAAA.
    It also seems the Pres. Obama must have screamed his bloody brains out at the Israelis for tapping Kerry's phone, not going to Israel and lying about Lt. Goldin.

    To correct my above statement: "not going to Cairo and lying about Lt. Goldin's death."

    Next... Israel lost. They had big plans to take over Gaza & the "West Bank"; not in the cards anymore. Hamas & the greater Palestinian movement has won over Obama's heart and mind. The talking heads from Israel, not so much.

    Concerning CNN's Chris Cuomo... he is a bit of a cheerleader for Israel. He interrogates any pro Palestinian but cuddles with anything Israeli. He like many other pro Israeli "reporters" always cuts off and interrupt what ever a Palestine supporter has to say. Maybe he is concerned about his brother the Gov. of NY Andrew Cuomo and his huge Jewish base in NYC. Just say'n. :)

    "Israel declares 'mission accomplished' as troops leave Gaza for cease-fire" ..... REALLY NOW. Is that how it is ???
    What really happened was President Obama said "Get out of Gaza or no more American $$$ or support".

    I do believe there is quite a IDF military presence in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. So why it illegal to send rockets in that direction ?

    All military operations were conducted out of Tel Aviv. Therefore the Israelis can not claim that Hamas targets civilians. They only do what the IDF does.... Targets military operations.
