Is America, or more pointedly, the Biden administration, with Israel in this fight for her life and the lives of her people, or against her?
It is not such a simple question. Caroline Glick has published a devastating essay in which she points out all the ways America, having initially rushed to Israel’s aid and supplied her with weapons, is now making it impossible for her to win the war. According Ms. Glick, who is is the senior contributing editor of Jewish News Syndicate and host of the “Caroline Glick Show” on JNS, as well as the diplomatic commentator for Israel’s Channel 14, a columnist for Newsweek, and a senior fellow for Middle Eastern Affairs at the Center for Security Policy in Washington: the only way for Israel to rout its enemies and enable its citizens to return to their homes in southern and northern Israel is to do precisely the opposite of what the United State demands.
In a press conference on Tuesday, Secretary of State Anthony Blinken insisted: “Israel needs to do everything it can to remove any obstacles from [aid] crossing to… Gaza. Improving deconfliction procedures to ensure that the aid can move safely and securely is a critical part of that,” he said, his heart bleeding for the “starving” Palestinians who started this conflict, and completely ignoring the Israeli hostages being deliberately starved. Most importantly, he completely ignoried that the method of aid delivery through Hamas-supporting UNWRA employees has seen this aid stolen by Hamas and used for terrorists to prolong the conflict.
Even though Blinken is well aware that Hamas terrorists deliberately embed themselves among civilians, he had this to say: “The daily toll on civilians in Gaza, particularly on children, is far too high.”
Well, what about this idea then: let “innocent civilians” leave Gaza, just as 6 million Ukrainians left their country since the Russian invasion. But the Biden administration is adamantly opposed to that: “The United States unequivocally rejects any proposals advocating for the resettlement of Palestinians outside of Gaza,” said Blinken. “In today’s meetings with Israeli leaders, I was… crystal clear: Palestinian civilians must be able to return home as soon as conditions allow.” Yes, to “rebuild” without de-Nazifying. What a joke!
And from there the US moved on to how to lose the battle for our Northern border, pushing for a “diplomatic solution” that will see no decrease in Hezbollah’s forces trained to invade Israel and commit genocide; no decrease in Hezbollah’s missile and drone arsenals, which are capable of destroying strategic targets and civilian populations throughout Israel. And most outrageous of all, requiring that Israel surrender sovereign territory to Hezbollah terrorists in exchange for the removal of Hezbollah forces from the border area. What?!!! Never achieve a status which will allow Israelis to live safely in their homes in the North? But let the Gazans – who started this whole thing – take back their land and go home to dig more tunnels? Does anyone see the disgusting insanity inherent in these ideas?
This is not the advice of an ally, but a bullying push for the Islamic agenda that will destroy our country.
And last but not least, the Biden administration sees “lasting peace” in the form of a Palestinian State headed by the PLO, oh sorry, the Palestinian Authority which Israel has been fighting along with Hamas, destroying terrorist enclaves set up under the PA in Judea and Samaria and from which an endless stream of terrorist attacks against Israelis emanate every hour on the hour. These are not peace partners.
And if you think I’m imagining Blinken’s duplicity, consider his answer to the question of an Al Jazeerah reporter during a recent press conference in Qatar. “One hundred and ten journalists have been targeted by the IDF, including the son of our colleague Wael Al-Dahdouh. Does the United States condemn the killing of journalists?” an Al Jazeerah “reporter” pointedly asks Blinken. His answer, without any fact check is: “I am deeply, deeply sorry for the almost unimaginable tragedy suffered by your colleague, and, as I’ve said, far too many innocent Palestinian men women and children.”
If Blinken had bothered to check, instead of doing an instant grovel and apology, he would have learned that Hamza Dahdouh, the dearly departed son of the esteemed Wael, the poor Dad, the Al Jazeerah “colleague, was a dual-hat Islamic Jihad terrorist-journalist, his name listed in documents found in Gaza in Islamic Jihad strongholds. The IDF released a copy of the document in Arabic. Perhaps get Blinken a copy?
Is this the way a friend behaves, cowering and agreeing and apologizing and siding with Israel’s lying enemies?
I think the time has been reached that Golda reached with Kissinger, and Begin reached with Carter, when Israel’s leaders have to stand up for their peoples’ lives. Hopefully the Biden administration isn’t long for this world. With its demise, will come the possibility of a true partnership with a real ally, instead of a fake hug from a weak, dithering, wrong-headed, morally corrupt frenemy. The weapons won’t help us if we give into their suicidal demands.
Today, the relatives of hostages took bull horns to the Gaza border and shouted to their loved ones to hold on. I wish I could have joined them.
I wish we had a single free nation that backed us honestly.
I wish we weren’t in this alone.
