It depends on what the meaning of "is" is - Bill Clinton's famous quote for lawyerly twisting of the the truth, so that a lie can technically be "not a lie". Fortunately (and this is what Hillary is referring to), US law, passed by Congress, is very explkicit and unambiguous about what the government must do if a legally designated terrorist organization, such as Hamas, becomes associated in any way with the PLO and its PA - 1) total cut-off of US government funding, 2) ban on US private citizen donations, 3) ban on business with US corporations, 4) ban on entry into the US, including closing of PLO offices and UN mission. The only way Clinton and Obama can get around this is to lie about it - to invent one of the "potential meanings" Hillary is talking about, to obscure the "actual meaning" for legal purposes. To create a courtroom justification for not enforcing the law while they appeal it. Playing this game, however, is guaranteed to trigger a firestorm with Congress, and in an election year. This is why Bibi is following the correct strategy by stalling for time until Obama is voted out of office - Israel can not sign ant peace deal that requires trusting Barack Hussein Obama.
