Now making an appearance at the Democratic National Convention: "Hebrew Hillary."

To clarify, the "Hebrew" refers to the language of the word "Hillary" that was written on a pin worn by Hillary Clinton's husband (and former US President) Bill, while in attendance on the third night at the Democratic National Convention.

The pin's origin was explained by one of Clinton's fomer aides, Steve Rabinowitz, also of the National Jewish Democratic Council, to Yair Rosenberg from The Tablet:

"I was at a Clinton/Gore campaign alumni event this afternoon at the National Museum of America Jewish History in Philadelphia and gave my old boss the pin. He said he’d wear it but I didn’t know whether or not to believe him and certainly didn’t think he’d do it tonight."

The sight of pin comes a day after protesters burned an Israeli flag outside the arena and two days after Palestinian flags were sighted front and center at the convention.
