Hillary Clinton saying “We must destroy Syria for Israel” in a leaked DNC e-mail is misleading news. A report incorrectly states that the former U.S. Secretary of State and Democratic presidential candidate said the United States should attack Syria in order to protect Israel. Clinton has been the subject of many fake news, tweets, photographs and memes. This is just the latest example.

The United States and European allies launched airstrikes against Syrian research, storage and military targets as President Donald Trump sought to punish President Bashar al-Assad for a suspected chemical attack near Damascus last weekend that killed more than 40 people.

Where did this misleading news originate? YourNewsWire published the fake news article reporting that Clinton previously voiced support for destroying Syria in a “leaked.” You can read it below.

Clinton Email: We Must Destroy Syria For Israel

[…]

“The best way to help Israel deal with Iran’s growing nuclear capability is to help the people of Syria overthrow the regime of Bashar Assad,” Clinton forthrightly starts off by saying.

Even though all US intelligence reports had long dismissed Iran’s “atom bomb” program as a hoax (a conclusion supported by the International Atomic Energy Agency), Clinton continues to use these lies to “justify” destroying Syria in the name of Israel.

She specifically links Iran’s mythical atom bomb program to Syria because, she says, Iran’s “atom bomb” program threatens Israel’s “monopoly” on nuclear weapons in the Middle East.

However, the above story is inaccurate, according to Snopes. Their research showed that the text is a part of Wikileaks’ “Hillary Clinton Email Archive,” and the title search returns three documents in that data set. While Clinton was claimed to have authored the e-mail, Snopes noted that she actually received and forwarded an attachment from James P. Rubin who made the opinion:

Subject: Best of luck on China trip

First, I want to wish you and Kurt best of luck getting out of the pickle Mr Chen has you in as you arrive in China. I wanted to pass on something I intend to publish on Syria and Iran, because I think it is worth trying to urge the President and his political advisers to act. As you can see from today’s column by Jackson Diehl, the pundits and many in the media will push the Syria issue very hard for the foreseeable future. It may not be on the front burner every day, but it will be close to or at the top of the media’s attention indefinitely. Interestingly, the Republicans have showed their hand on the foreign policy debate, in which inaction on Syria is pretty much the only serious criticism they can offer that will stick. As you will see from the attached piece, I believe that action on Syria will forestall the biggest danger on the horizon, that Israel launches a surprise attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities. Although the pressure has now eased for a variety of reasons, it will return. Action by Washington on Syria, on the other hand, I believe will eliminate much of the urgency for Israeli action. In other words, a more aggressive policy on Syria will eliminate the best case the republican’s have going into the November election, will ease substantially the pressure on Israel to attack Iran and possibly spark a wider war in the Middle East, and finally would be the right stance on Syria going forward. I know you may not agree but I thought it was better to share this with you first as at least a new way to look at the problem.

All best, your friend,
Jamie

Clinton, as secretary of state, was a proponent of more direct action in Syria at the time, despite former President Barack Obama’s apprehension about military action in the country. “I wish, obviously I wish that the international community writ large had been able to rein this in.”

Here are some examples of people sharing the fake news on social media.
