Joe Biden Is Selling Out Israel to the Antisemitic Mob

Biden-Israel-Medal-of-Honor

Even as President Joe Biden was delivering his perfunctory Holocaust Remembrance speech earlier this week, decrying the “ferocious surge” in antisemitism on college campuses and prattling on about how he would never forget the Oct. 7 attack — which saw over 1,200 Israelis murdered, raped and kidnapped — the president was planning to stop the Jewish state from destroying modern-day Nazis.

On Wednesday, Biden told CNN’s Erin Burnett that if Israel invades the city of Rafah in Gaza — where remaining battalions of Hamas terrorists are holed up behind civilians — the U.S. would stop supplying Israel with offensive and precision weapons.

This is a historic moment, as it is surely the first time a president has sold out a stalwart U.S. ally to save a terrorist organization. And not just any terror organization, but one that murdered, sexually tortured, kidnapped — and still holds — American citizens. Biden has sacrificed them to the mobs of Columbia University and Dearborn, Michigan, and The Washington Post editorial board. Biden could have given Israel this ultimatum privately. But he went on TV to do it precisely because it is meant for the ears of Israel haters.

You may recall, only a couple of weeks ago Democrats insisted on attaching Israeli aid to Ukrainian aid as a means of garnering the votes to pass a foreign assistance bill. Biden is now pausing the congressionally approved delivery of weapons to one ally to bolster his domestic election prospects by appealing to campus radicals and antisemitic enclaves.

In 2020, former President Donald Trump was impeached for “abuse of power” and “obstruction of Congress” for merely threatening Volodymyr Zelensky on a phone call with the same behavior. This is far worse. Not only is Israel a longtime ally, it is also, in every way imaginable, a better “democracy” than Ukraine.

It should not be lost on anyone that Biden is only incentivizing more demonstrations and violence from the communists, Islamists and well-funded Hamas cosplayers. The next time a Jewish kid is accosted on campus, Biden can take some credit. Then again, the president’s donors are also the patrons of these America-hating revolutionaries. And they have, by any measure, succeeded.

Biden is also willing to sacrifice the remaining American hostages to placate the mob. If Israel submits to the president’s demands, it will have been stripped of any leverage in hostage negotiations. Why would a terror organization hand back any Jews knowing that the Israelis are being leashed by the United States? All they had to do was wait it out.

It is almost surely the case that Biden’s feckless, unprincipled nature allowed him to be cowed by the pro-Iranian Obamites who now infest the American government and institutions. We learned Monday that Rob Malley, a man who brought Iranian assets into the United States government, was suspended for allegedly sending classified documents to his personal email account and downloading them to his personal phone. Weird, right?

Yet, not even former President Barack Obama, who had been chummy with black supremacists and other antisemites for decades before reaching the White House, cut off aid to Israel. Democrats continue to lurch toward the hard left.

And where are the Jewish Democrats decrying this development? Probably blaming their straw man, Benjamin Netanyahu, whom they frame as some kind of warmongering fascist. In reality, the unity government war council of Israel includes the opposition leader. Netanyahu has less power to act unilaterally than the American president. There is no responsible government in Israel, much less the world, that would permit Hamas to skate.

Well, perhaps the one run by the person who opposed the bin Laden operation.

In the end, Biden has also prolonged the suffering of Palestinians. Hamas knew there would be retribution after Oct 7. They knew thousands of Arab civilians would die, because they seek as many martyrs and as much suffering as possible. Biden only extended that reality by allowing Islamists to hold power. Rather than planning for a post-Hamas Gaza and Israel-Saudi normalization, Biden is choosing to save Iranian proxies in the region.

Democrats like to argue that Israel shouldn’t be given a “blank check,” which implies that the Jewish state is indiscriminately killing people without any legitimate plan or goal. There is no blank check. Israel’s mission is well defined. Biden is micromanaging the military operations of an ally and limiting categories of weapons to stop Israel from eliminating Hamas — designated a foreign terrorist organization by the U.S. State Department.

It is scandalous and corrupt.

Team Biden is acting exactly how any administration based on appeasement of one’s enemies would act. Biden is at risk of losing thousands of anti-American, antisemitic Islamic voters in a couple of key swing states ahead of the election. So like anyone whose default solution to everything is appeasement, Biden and his team do what is natural for them. They decide to throw a long-term, valuable ally under the bus for political expediency’s sake. Providing yet another example to the rest of the world and our few remaining allies, after 3 1/2 years of horrendous domestic and foreign policies, that the United States can no longer be relied on for anything. That everything can be traded away on a moment’s notice, if it is politically expedient to do so.

Biden just happened to say the nasty reality of how his administration really makes its decisions out loud, because his dementia has degraded whatever filter once existed between his brain and mouth. Which is why the White House staff this week announced that they plan to reduce Biden’s public appearances, where he takes questions from reporters, in the coming months ahead of the election. Clearly the drugs he takes for his dementia are becoming less and less effective, so his staff seeks to limit the inadvertent truths that Biden blurts out.

In the meantime, our few remaining allies are actively reassessing their relations with the United States and considering all their options to forge new alliances going forward. This all of course greatly benefits President Xi and China (no big surprise there), as leaders from both Europe, South America and Africa all entertain meetings with President Xi or his surrogates.

There continues to be no surprises with Pres. Biden and the administration — they cannot make up their minds of what to do to please everyone with upcoming election. Of course, Pres. Biden and the rest of his cronies need to be impeached and charged with treason but that will not happen anytime soon. Pres. Biden has continued to make himself nonresponsive to all reality (just following his puppet masters).
As for Israel, they should still receive all support from the U.S.A. despite the waning of our government. In reality, GOD’s Word does state that the nations of the world including the U.S.A. will turn against Israel in the end and the events that follow will be ordained by the Almighty GOD.

Excellent article. What do you expect from a Communist Chinese SPY Agent who supports and funds Terrorist like obama?.
He’s depleted our military ammunition giving it all to Ukraine. Has only 1 in 4 Munition Shells being replaced and he STILL hasn’t refilled the National Strategic Oil Reserves.
So, NO. I’m not surprised that Dictator Beijing biden continues to support our enemies. Look how he supports his Illegal Alien Terrorist Invasion over Americans. He Declared War against the United States when he Killed our Energy Independence. He surrendered to Terrorist in Afghanistan and gave Billions of OUR money to Terrorist Sponsor Iran to appease them and now they practically have a Nuclear Weapon. Yet, the One True Ally we have Dictator Beijing biden Hides and turns his back on Israel.

There are many others who are no better than Biden including a few in the GOP who won’t give unequivocal support to our ally Israel. We must fully support Israel until they achieve total victory. Hamas must be destroyed and something needs to be done about Iran.

Praise for this fine article David . Harsanyl. The United States and Israel are under attack by enemies both foreign and domestic. An example of something very corrupt going on in the medical profession here is a policy that hospitals have called Fall Risk. To get right to the point if the hospital decides that someone could fall then they are in a situation where suffering is imposed in at least two ways Use of the rest room is made complicated by having intravenous saline solution tube in one arm and a heart monitor with several wires attached . And a patient is confined to bed, cannot even stand up next to the bed or an alarm will sound. This is something that causes suffering, compromises healing, is against individual. freedom and is insulting. It is obviously in place because the hospital assumes that the majority of American citizens are lacking a level of intelligence that would be necessary to prevent a fall from occuring.The excuse is that the hospital could be sued if someone fell in the hospital. There are other ways to minimize the falling possibility that are not disrespectful of basic rights and do not compromise the ability to heal. I thought it important to mention this matter ,it is part of the deterioration that is contrary to basic American rights and values. Knowing how to defend good from evil,whether here or in Israel is a matter that requires being vigilant for situations that do not contribute to strengthening the National character..

Donald Trump s first Presidential campaign rally in Phoenix. Donald Trump held his first campaign rally, since announcing his Republican candidacy for President, at the Phoenix Convention Center. The event was hosted by the Maricopa County Republican Party. Media outlets from all over the country converged in Phoenix to cover this event. Previously, Mr. Trump created a media firestorm with his comments about illegal immigration during his candidacy announcement. Thousands filled the north ballroom of the convention center to see Trump and hear him speak. The event was scheduled to be held at the Arizona Biltmore, but the requests for tickets were so great the event had to be moved to the larger venue. Opponents held a peaceful protest outside the center. Trump s slogan is Make America Great Again.
