Here’s an opportunity to celebrate with fellow progressives:

Ambassador and Mrs. Kaplan Come to CD3
On November 13, Congressional District 3 DFL, hosted an event honoring the former Ambassador to Morocco and his wife, Sam and Sylvia Kaplan.
Former Ambassador Sam Kaplan, and his wife were interviewed by Don Shelby, long-time WCCO newscaster. Informal and gracious, the Kaplans sat down with Shelby in front of a cozy fire-place surrounded by an audience of around 100 people who came to see and hear about their Moroccan experiences.
It wasn’t just the soft ecru décor and lighting in the Centennial Conference Center in Edina, the gorgeous Mediterranean themed buffet, the who’s who in the Minnesota DFL in attendance, including DFL Chair Ken Martin or the famous-in-his-own-right, moderator Don Shelby, former news anchor on WCCO-TV, whose work has earned him two Peabody awards and an Emmy, it was the former Ambassador to Morocco and his wife, the evening’s headliners, who made the evening unforgettable.
President Obama sends Sam and Sheila Kaplan to Morocco
Samuel L. Kaplan was sworn in on September 18, 2009, as the personal representative of President Obama, with the goal improving U.S. relations within the Muslim world.
Morocco is governed by a constitutional monarchy with an elected Parliament. The King of Morocco is a powerful figure who holds sway over not only executive and legislative authority, but over the military. He controls religious affairs. Morocco is a Muslim country; the main religion is Islam and the languages are Berber, Arabic and French.
Morocco first country to diplomatically recognize the US in 1777
Morocco was the first country to diplomatically recognize the United States, way back in our country’s early beginnings, December 20, 1777. The US and Morocco are longstanding allies. A Treaty of Peace and Friendship between the U.S. and Morocco was signed by Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, and Muhammad III. Interestingly this became the first treaty ratified by the Congress under the Constitution. The treaty has remained unbroken, representing the longest treaty relationship in U. history.
Morocco and the United States
As a moderate Arab nation and a long-time ally of the United States, Morocco plays a critical role in world diplomacy. A poll from 2009 found that 57 percent of Moroccans had a positive opinion of Obama.
Cultural differences noticeable for Mrs. Kaplan
As an ambassador, Kaplan, and particularly his wife Silvia had to adapt to the cultural differences of their host country which on the surface appear to be a cross between U.S. culture and Islamic culture. But when you look deeper into the everyday lives of Moroccans patriarchy and Muslim culture particularly related to women’s equality still exist.
Though you might see women in the conservative Jalapa and foulard, there are also women in business suits and younger women in more Americanized trendy attire. But men are still allowed to marry multiple women and carry on some of the more traditional customs like offering dowries to their wives.
Arab Spring and Freedom of Press in Morocco
Freedom of the press in Morocco is improving according to Kaplan. But incidents like the government removing magazines from newsstands because they objected to a published poll about the public’s perception of the monarchy, still occur.
Morocco escaped the Arab Spring. But, when the Kaplans went to Egypt for a Chamber of Commerce meeting, they stayed with Ambassador to Egypt and got the chance to witness the unraveling of the economy and civil unrest. Kaplan said a new Morocco Constitution, and elections were initiated to avoid Arab spring-style up-rising there. Kaplan said this was a move in the right direction for the current King to take.
Morocco Expels U.S. Christians for Proselytizing
In March 2010, while serving as Ambassador, Kaplan, expressed the US’s “distress” over Morocco expelling 16 Americans who worked at the orphanage “Village of Hope.” Accused of proselytizing Morocco allows people to practice Christianity, but no proselytizing is allowed. The US Consulate deemed this to be a violation of due process by refusing to provide hearings for those accused.
The Day-to-Day living in Morocco
It was not like being home in Minnesota. They traveled in a motorcade, had security guards. They couldn’t walk to the neighborhood shopping area or anywhere without an entourage particularly during week-ends. But, both said when they had the opportunity to go out and meet the people, they were exceptionally welcoming and friendly.
According to Kaplan Morocco is the most moderate Arab country. They broke off relations with Iran and have helped in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.
Interestingly their home in Morocco was large, atypically American, so they filled it with pieces from their home in Minneapolis and historical items from the Minnesota Museum of American Art and the Minnesota Historical Society.
Don’t Leave Money on the Table
The Political Contribution Refund program was re-established in July of this year. The Legislature has set aside fund specifically for this effort.
It is one of the tools that helps keep Minnesota’s politics local by helping people contribute to candidates or parties that they care about or know to support their issues.
Historically, Republicans use this program twice as much as Democrats. Matter of fact, they think Democrats don’t understand politics and money by not using the program.
Prove Them Wrong
Take the time to write a check or visit the contribution page of this website and make a contribution to Senate District 48 DFL.
Here’s how it works:
The first $50 a person makes to a state political party unit or candidate is fully reimbursed. So, it’s like loaning us the money. Married? A couple can contribute $100 and receive the full amount back if this is their first contribution of the year. Got voting age children at home? The same thing applies — the first $50 they contribute to us is reimbursed.
You can make this contribution and receive this refund once a year. So, come January 1, you can contribute again and receive another $50 refund.

An Evening with

An Evening with Hillary Rodham Clinton, Continued
Posted by SD48 DFL Communications Team in e-Newsletter, News
Q & A Segment
Commentator Elliot Badzen asked Mrs. Clinton questions about what the Situation Room was like during the Bin Laden capture and how the decision was made to send in a Seal Team?
Hillary was a senator representing New York State on 9-11, so it had a profound impact on her as representative of a community so directly impacted by the loss of life and destruction to property. Clinton said that getting Bin Laden was both an honor and a priority. In 2009 Clinton went to Pakistan and asked whether Bin Laden was there. A quote from an Oct, 2009, ABC News article shows that she believed Bin Laden was living in Pakistan.
“I find it hard to believe that nobody in your government knows where they are and couldn’t get them if they really wanted to,” she said. “Maybe that’s the case, maybe they’re not gettable. I don’t know.” She added, however, “As far as we know, they are in Pakistan.”
Clinton said small groups within the government started meeting. Most believed there was a 40 to 60% chance Bin Laden was in Pakistan. Outside analysis was sought and the conclusions they all arrived at resulted in three courses of action which could be taken. One was to use a drone attack on the compound where they believed Bin Laden was, number two was to use a missile to destroy the compound and number three was to employ “special operations” to take the compound.
The third option was the one Clinton supported and was the consensual action agreed upon amongst the group. As we know today Navy Seals performed what is referred to as the “special operations.” These operations included different “contingencies,” such as using radar-evading helicopters, and the Seal Team attack plan. Bin Laden was taken on May 1st by United States Forces in Pakistan, while the women and children in the compound were escorted to safety.
Commentator Elliot Badzen asked Mrs. Clinton to talk about Iran.
Clinton said she is a proponent of Iran sanctions. She tried to get other countries to coordinate with the United States to enforce sanctions unilaterally with one enforcement team rather than a piecemeal approach.
The “P5+1”: a group of six world powers which in 2006 joined the diplomatic efforts with Iran in regard to its nuclear program. The term refers to the five permanent members of the UN Security Council, namely United States, Russia, China, United Kingdom, and France, plus Germany.
Clinton said “P5+1” provided nothing and that no deal was better than a bad deal.
The goal was to stop their program of enrichment and prevent them from having a nuclear weapon. This included: Centrifuges, Enrichment, 20% Medical Isotopes, specific sites/ locations, Iran’s Arak facility which is said to have nuclear weapons grade plutonium, heavy water reactors and missiles.
The dialogue included the complexities of dealing with Iran’s Revolutionary Guard, its Supreme Leader and Iranian Clerics in control.
The Ongoing Iran Debate
- • Military Action Option: concerns over how effective it would be and how long it would take.
- • Current Secretary of State John Kerry and Israel are in current talks
- • Israel has great concern over Iran because Iran has continuously supported terrorism and terrorist attacks
- • Arab Spring- Israel and Saudi Arabia have become unlikely allies in the fight against terrorism.
- • Iron Dome- is Israel’s mobile all-weather air defense system funded by the United States
Commentator Elliot Badzen asked Mrs. Clinton to talk about the current state of Washington, DC
Clinton responded to this question saying that a relatively small group essentially shut down the government and thereby sullied the reputation, the full, faith and credit of the United States. She characterized this group’s action as an astonishing display of disregard for the country. Clinton said no President of a country or of a corporation can give in to that kind of interference in getting the work of the people or the business of a company and its shareholders accomplished.
In 2011 Clinton went on a trip to Hong Kong to talk to business people. At the time there was a government shut-down in the U.S. The sentiment in Hong Kong, among its business leaders, was that it was probably time, and way overdue, “de-Americanizing” the world. In other words, if the U.S. can’t and won’t pay their bills, other countries have a great interest in creating a different business framework that does not depend on U.S. dollars.
Q & A Segment – Commentator Elliot Badzen asked Mrs. Clinton to talk about the Affordable Care Act, (ACA) or Obamacare
Clinton believes that establishing a national health care system is going to involve glitches. She said that transparency, competition, and quality make the ACA the best because for the first time everyone is able to look at published costs of procedures. The disparity in health care pricing needed to be published in a national data base in order to bring prices down. Doing away with pre-existing conditions is a step toward more preventive care while adding adult children to parent’s policies provides health protections for kids still in college. Clinton noted that more Republicans have taken advantage of some of the ACA benefits.
(To bear this out in an article in the Washington Post of August of 2013, “a new poll done by the Commonwealth Foundation found that young Republicans are more likely to have health coverage through their parents’ policy than young Democrats, an option widely expanded under the Affordable Care Act. This is corroborated by separate Census Bureau data which also finds an uptick in young adults’ insurance coverage, one that doesn’t show up in other demographics.)
Clinton was a New York Senator when Medicare Part D, prescription drug coverage law came online. She said there was definitely some complexity in the beginning. So, getting a national system online with states such as Texas, that did not adopt their own health care exchanges, while Minnesota did, made it even more complex. Clinton believes once the national online operation is fixed we can begin to assess what is working and what isn’t.
Clinton accused DC as operating in an Evidence Free Zone.
(According to The Hill, in an article from October 24th of this year, Clinton said, DC is “an evidence free-zone, with ideology trumping everything else.”)
Q & A Segment – Commentator Elliot Badzen asked Mrs. Clinton to talk about the Cease Fire in Gaza she helped negotiate
Clinton revealed that Israel was extremely concerned about the Hamas, Muslim Brotherhood Alliance. There were many communications and visits to try and broker a cease fire. The Fatah movement doesn’t support a Palestinian state alongside Israel, Hamas did not. Hamas was funded by Iran and Fatah was funded by the U.S.
NOTE: Clinton said at that time Fatah was still supporting and providing payments to Hamas. This doesn’t seem to be factually incorrect. It is not borne out by documentation I’ve found. So, I’ve reworded it above. I may have heard her incorrectly. Everything else pans out as factually correct and corroborated.
According to an article in the Haaretz paper from March of 2012,” Fatah: Iran paid Hamas to block Palestinian unity deal. Fatah spokesman says Iran recently resumed financial aid to Hamas which had been suspended half a year ago over Hamas’ failure to back the Assad regime in Syria.”
Clinton said she visited Egyptian President Morsi in Cairo in order to broker a Peace Deal in 2012. In talks with U.S. President Obama, Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu and Egyptian President Morsi, a cease fire agreement was put in place November 11th, 2012.
According the Chicago Sun Times from Nov 2012, the “U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has arrived in Cairo in her diplomatic push to forge a truce between Israel and Gaza rulers of Hamas, hours after a bomb exploded on an Israeli bus in Tel Aviv, wounding 10. Clinton will meet with Egypt’s President Mohammed Morsi on Wednesday to piece together a deal to end Israel’s weeklong offensive in the Gaza Strip, which has killed more than 130 Palestinians. Militant rocket fire into Israel has killed five Israelis.”

The afternoon of September 29, after the Vikings’ win, we gathered at Eden Wood Conference Center to enjoy a sunny, warm fall afternoon, some great food, check out an array of Holiday Silent Auction items, and dine an a wonderful spread of southern food.
We also were also joined by State Auditor Rebecca Otto, Rep. Steve Simon, Joel Hilstrom speaking on behalf of his wife, Rep. Deb Hilstrom, Rep. Yvonne Selcer (48A, D), State Senate Candidate Laurie McKendry and Minnetonka Mayoral Candidate Grace Sheely. State Attorney General Lori Swanson sent her regrets.

Third Congressional District Chair Cheryl Poling rounded out our list of dignitaries.
Here are some photos of our event:

This Just In — Save the Date
As we mentioned last month, there are a number of elections on the ballot this November 5. Where there isn’t a national race or event a state race on the ticket, people tend to tell themselves it doesn’t make any difference if they don’t take a bit of time away from work (it’s in statute that you can take time off to vote) or an evening to do that one action that makes us a representative democracy — vote.And, in several of these races, they will have a direct affect on your life than some of the state or national positions do.
So, please, put voting on your calendar and make certain you take that time that citizens of Minnesota and the United States and cast your ballot.
Eden Prairie School Board
At the recent Eden Prairie School Board Candidate Forum hosted by the League of Women Voters, these candidates stated they were endorsed by the Senate District 48 Republican Party of Minnesota: Murshid Burud, Renee Jacobus and Holly Link. Elaine Larabee is the Treasurer for Rep. Jenifer Loon (48B-R).
Of the people running for office, we believe Timothy Laurie’s most closely match those of the DFL Party.
