A proverb for Hillary

June 29, 2009

Since Hillary Clinton is fond of native proverbs I’d like to point her to a popular Persian proverb that says, ‘Sokoot alaamat-e rezayat ast,’ or ‘Silence is a sign of approval.’

‘Under U.S. legislation, no aid — other than for the promotion of democracy — may be provided to a country whose elected head of government has been toppled in a military coup. Asked if the United States was currently considering cutting off aid, Clinton shook her head no.’
