It was something that most people probably expected. The Biden Administration’s initial unconditional support for Israel that happened after the Hamas attack is waning. With an extended “war” against Hamas in Gaza and antisemitic Democratic voters (especially the youth vote) threatening to abandon Biden in the presidential election, the White House has to do damage control. Along those lines, they have been giving lip service about protecting the Palestinians and have been criticizing Israel’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu.
With antisemitism running rampant on college campuses and with Democrat organizations and politicians, the Biden Administration has decided to be true to their anti-Israel selves and criticize and make demands of Israel.
According to Breitbart News, Antony Blinken, U.S. Secretary of State, has told Israel that they lack “credit” to conduct the kind of military campaign necessary to defeat Hamas. He also said the United States wouldn’t “tolerate” large-scale bombing over months in southern Gaza.
Oh, really? Or what??? It’s not like they’re doing anything about our enemies attacking US all over the world – so what exactly are they going to do if Israel doesn’t take war advice from the Biden administration???
In a leaked transcript of Blinken’s meeting with Israel’s war cabinet, the Times of Israel quoted him as saying that Israel needs to make sure more Palestinians are evacuated from their homes and that Israel needs to be more accurate in their attacks.
The safety of the Palestinians is becoming the main focus of the Biden administration – not eviscerating Hamas. And when the terrorists hide behind schools and hospitals, they are more prone to win the PR war.
On the left-wing Guardian website, they are reporting that President Biden regrets the strength of his support for Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. They call the ground invasion “hellish” quoting words from the U.N. and say that Biden has slowly (but too slowly according to them) “adjusted” his stance to include issuing strongly worded calls for proportionality, access for humanitarian assistance and respect for international law.
Blinken also apparently told Netanyahu last week that the White House and the Democratic Party was losing patience with them and said, “The massive loss of civilian life and displacement of the scale we saw in northern Gaza (must) not be repeated in the south.”
I’m trying to remember… did Israel ever complain about America’s war on terror after 9/11 – about our tactics or the fact that it has been going on for more than 20 years? With no successful “victory” on that war, we’re still fighting it today – obviously. But it’s always with little help from the Democrats.
Democratic VP Kamala Harris, who slept her way into politics, is also interested in protecting Gaza civilians and said so during a news conference on the sidelines of the COP28 summit. She wants Israel to do more to protect the Palestinians and said, “As Israel defends itself, it matters how. The United States is unequivocal: International humanitarian law must be respected. Too many innocent Palestinians have been killed.”
Additionally, the Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, who is usually too busy dealing with climate change and DEI matters to engage in his actual job of protecting the country, stepped into the discussion as well, warning Netanyahu that he was replacing a “tactical victory” with strategic defeat by driving Palestinians into the arms of Hamas.
I contend that the Palestinians are already there and have been for a long time. But that’s not of any relevance to all of the anti-Israel folks in our country, including so many Democrats.
The Democrat party has forgotten all about the atrocities of the kidnappings, rapes and murders of the Israeli and Americans by Hamas on October 7th. It doesn’t seem to be a concern of theirs at all. Over and done. On to new things – like electing Democrats. And whatever that entails.
