In a private, paid speech to a Jewish philanthropic group in 2013 Hillary Clinton named Saudi Arabia as the number one exporter of “extreme ideology” in the world over the past 30 years.

Excerpts of Hillary Clinton’s private, paid speeches to Wall Street banks and other organizations were included in emails from Clinton campaign manager John Podesta’s account released by Wikileaks after being obtained by hackers. Some intelligence experts suspect the hackers have Russian ties.

In an October, 2013 speech to the Jewish United Fund, Clinton addressed conflicts in Egypt specifically and the Middle East more generally.

“So it’s, right now, playing itself out. The military is going to remain in charge for as long as they choose to, really. They are going to face more internal threats that they are going to have to be very tough in dealing with, and they are going to try to, in as much as they can, squash the Muslim Brotherhood and their political arm,” Clinton said.

“And they are getting a lot of help from the Saudis to the Emiratis — to go back to our original discussion — because the Saudis and the Emiratis see the Muslim Brotherhood as threatening to them, which is kind of ironic since the Saudis have exported more extreme ideology than any other place on earth over the course of the last 30 years.”

As previously reported by The Daily Caller, Hillary Clinton sent an email to Podesta stating that Saudi Arabia and Qatar are providing both financial and logistical support to ISIS. (RELATED: Hillary In Leaked Email: Saudi Arabia And Qatar Are Funding ISIS)

Both Qatar and Saudi Arabia gave millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation.

Qatar gave between $1 million and $5 million to the foundation, while Saudi Arabi gave upwards of $25 million.
