Biden Turns His Back On Israel As He Embraces Iran
Basically what this boils down to, is that Israel will find no friend in the White House and can expect 4 years more as they had from the Obama/Biden regime.
Biden has not even called Netanyahu since taking office. But he has tried to mend ties with the Hamas terrorists and Iran.
There are more than a couple of disturbed Arab countries who can see they are no longer in tune with Washington. That includes Saudi Arabia.
Whitehouse spokeswoman Jen Psaki was asked point-blank if Biden considers Israel and Saudi Arabia as important allies.
As usual, she did not answer a politically embarrassing question. But, as I always say, actions speak louder than words.
Giving Hamas back the money they were getting from Obama/Biden that paid money to terrorists and the families of dead terrorists for killing Americans, tells our Arab allies they are now persona non grata.
Biden’s hatred of Israel spans almost four decades.
Back in 1982 Biden pounded his fist on a table and threatened to cut off funding to Israel if they didn’t make concessions on new settlements. But, he picked the wrong man to threaten.
Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin said:
Don’t threaten us with cutting off your aid. It will not work. I am not a Jew with trembling knees. I am a proud Jew with 3,700 years of civilized history. Nobody came to our aid when we were dying in the gas chambers and ovens. Nobody came to our aid when we were striving to create our country. We paid for it. We fought for it. We died for it. We will stand by our principles. We will defend them. And, when necessary, we will die for them again, with or without your aid.
This desk is designed for writing, not for fists. Don’t threaten us with slashing aid. Do you think that because the U.S. lends us money it is entitled to impose on us what we must do? We are grateful for the assistance we have received, but we are not to be threatened. I am a proud Jew. Three thousand years of culture are behind me, and you will not frighten me with threats. Take note: we do not want a single soldier of yours to die for us.
When asked about the White House views on Israel, Psaki said:
“Well, again, I think there are ongoing processes and internal inter-agency processes. One that we, I think, confirmed, an inter-agency meeting just last week to discuss a range of issues in the Middle East. We’ve only been here three and a half weeks. And I think I’m going to let those policy processes see themselves through before we give kind of a complete lay down of what our national security approaches will be to a range of issues.”
