US Vice President Joe Biden’s poor treatment of Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu followed by his harsh statement to Israel is a symptom of a much larger problem. Once again, we are seeing President Obama’s Muslim roots and Arab connections stifling Israel the same way the alluring South African ice plant has become an ecological nuisance to California. Despite Obama’s charisma at the podium, we have seen both Biden and Secretary of State Hilary Clinton flip-flop on their views towards Israel. This is concerning.
Why would Biden snub Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu by arriving 90 minutes late to a scheduled dinner? That doesn’t gel when the US claims to be Israel’s staunchest ally. In fact, the ACORN administration’s appeasements to the Arab world have eroded the US relationship with Israel to a point that is unrecognizable compared with previous US administrations. But there’s more.
Biden’s attempt to give Israel a bear hug today shows that he and the ACORN administration is doing damage control after his public slight of Netanyahu and the fallout from Israel and pro-Israel supporters in the US. While Biden may have a 94% pro-Israel voting record, we all know that how he voted previously flew out the window the minute he joined the ACORN administration.
For recent flip-flops, let’s look at US Secretary of State, Hilary Clinton. There is no doubt that Clinton was supportive of Israel while serving as a New York senator during 2001 — 2009. It’s obvious she strongly supported the Jewish state by reading her quote in a September 2007 position paper:
â€œIsrael’s right to exist in safety as a Jewish state, with defensible borders and an undivided Jerusalem as its capital, must never be questioned.â€
This is exactly what Israelis and those who support Israel want to hear. Then, Clinton did a u-turn under Muslim sympathizer Obama by supporting unconditional increases in US aid to the Palestinian Authority and Gaza. Remember, this is terrorist-run Gaza with Hamas in charge that she agreed to fork over $900 million to. The most recent allocation that Obama signed off on was $40 million. But we know the more aid agencies like UNWRA gain, the larger the â€œPalestinianâ€ population becomes. Wake up, DC! Going from a population of 900,000 in 1950 to 4.7 million today should tell you something. UNWRA and the PA couldn’t lead a camel to water anymore effectively than they could raise Palestinians off international handouts.Â Teaching hatred of Jews and Israelis in 59 â€œPalestinianâ€ refugee camps should be more than an eye-opener. But then again, why would neighboring Arab countries want to give their life to decimate Israel when there is an avid source of suicide bombers that bring their family honor by dying? Yes, it’s sick and twisted but that’s life in Gaza. Funding terrorists that continue to let their people live in poverty while they purchase real estate should serve as a reminder.
Clinton also called for a complete freeze on all settlement construction with no exceptions. This is not the pro-Israel Clinton that New Yorkers supported. And frankly, this type of about face is sure to make her career in politics kaput. This goes for Obama and Biden, too. Get your resumes ready, guys.
Biden on the other hand got a small glimpse of a fireworks today (take note bleeding heart leftists, liberals and hate mongers â€“ this one’s for you). Only it wasn’t from Disneyland but from â€œPalestiniansâ€ who fired a rocket from terrorist-run Gaza into Southern Israel as Biden was winding his slightâ€¦ err I mean visitâ€¦ up. Quite a nice touch that proves the Palestinians don’t want peace and never will despite the billions of dollars that lined their â€œleadersâ€ pockets. Heck, ask former Palestinian President and BILLIONAIRE Yasser Arafat what happened to all the funds he collected on behalf of his people. Oh that’s right, he dead so why not read about it.
The pat answer released for Biden’s rudeness was that it was due to the Israeli announcement to build new 1,600 homes in East Jerusalem. Why would that matter? Jerusalem is Israel’s undivided capital capital, never to be questionedâ€”remember, Clinton said so â€” even if the international community is too antisemitic to realize it. Let’s face it. The Arab world has never acknowledged Israel as a country even 62 years after the UN Committee voted to make it one. So why would we â€“ and I’m talking to the free world here â€“ take totalitarian Arab governments’ word on what Israel’s capital is when they don’t even note Israel on their maps? Feel free to check.
But come on. The â€œPalestiniansâ€ have stayed mum for 14 months and only just announced their willingness to restart peace talks prior to Biden’s forthcoming trip. Seem fishy? I’ll say. For those not familiar with the Arab automatic refusal, get used to it. If the PA says it’s willing to talk, you can bet that they have already planned a premature exit. The PA obviously knew about the Israeli construction in East Jerusalem and used it as an opportunity to grandstand in front of Biden, the ACORN administration and totalitarian governments who wish to see Israel’s demise. But guess what? Those that see through this asinine veil aren’t buying it. We need our U.S. administration to stop pandering to every Muslim that comes their way with mammoth campaign contributions. The same premise goes for US universities that are practically Arab owned and sponsored and are becoming more like the antisemitic U.N. every day. Yes, that means University of California Irvine, University of California Berkley â€“ Judith Butler â€“ you’re pathetic, the Baker Institute at Rice University and slew of other universities that are allowing the Muslim Students Union and CAIR to spread anti-Israel and anti-Jewish hatred on their campuses.
So while ice plants are attractive along California highways they are just as invasive as the ACORN administration has become to American values. It’s high time that we stand up for Israel even if our government fails to do so. The flipside is that 2012 is only a couple years away and we can show our dissatisfaction by voting out an administration that has replaced our flag with a crescent moon and star. Most Americans understand the value of keeping Israel our ally in the Middle East and sanctioning Arab factions that can’t keep their greedy hands off Israel’s capital, Jerusalem, the same way we would boot out Mexican drug lords if they laid claim to Austin or Sacramento.
