The overwhelming majority of Israelis want to continue killing Palestinian women and children in the Gaza Strip with American weapons.
“The poll finds that 72% say “the operation should continue,” with the number rising slightly in the south of the country to 73%.
Only 24% say “we should agree” to a ceasefire, with the figure dropping to 22% in the south. …”
“The U.S. has opposed a United Nations resolution that calls for a cease-fire between Israel and Hamas, saying it would interfere with efforts by the Biden administration to de-escalate the situation.
A spokesperson for the U.S. Mission to the United Nations told The Associated Press “we’ve been clear and consistent that we are focused on intensive diplomatic efforts under way to bring an end to the violence and that we will not support actions that we believe undermine efforts to de-escalate.”
The resolution was drafted by France, according to the AP.
The U.S. had previously blocked at least four attempts to issue a press statement calling for a cease-fire, the AP noted. …”
“There’s a story Joe Biden likes to tell any time he speaks to an audience about Israel.
It’s 1948, a matter of days before Israel’s founding and three years after the end of World War II. Six-year-old Joey Biden is at the dinner table with his family, listening to his Catholic father wonder aloud why some people wouldn’t want to recognize the state of Israel. That’s when his father uttered the words “never again,” making clear to young Joey that the existence of Israel was crucial to preventing another Holocaust.
It’s a story that helps explain why, even in the face of mounting pressure from human rights groups and progressives within his own party, Biden has stood firmly by Israel over the last 10 days as it has relentlessly bombed Gaza, killing more than 200 people, including children.
While his party has moved to the left on Israel policy, with even pro-Israel Democrats more willing to criticize the country, Biden has stayed put. He has yet to directly call for a ceasefire in the conflict, preferring instead to repeat the mantra that “Israel has a right to defend itself.” (A Republican, Sen. Todd Young of Indiana, beat him to the punch on calling for a ceasefire, though he later backtracked.) His administration has also blocked three resolutions at the UN Security Council that would have backed a ceasefire. …”
Isn’t this rich?
As everyone is aware, Joe Biden and the Democratic Party has loudly condemned systematic racism and “white supremacy.” Joe Biden has condemned Georgia for practicing “Jim Crow on steroids.” And yet, the Biden administration and the Democratic Party is protecting Israel from international condemnation at the United Nations and selling $735 million dollars in precision-guided weapons to Israel which it is using to kill women and children while lynch mobs go around killing Palestinians in Israel. Nothing of the sort has happened in Georgia which Joe Biden condemned as a “Jim Eagle” state.
Who is speaking out against the Israeli war crimes and human rights abuses? It certainly isn’t Joe Biden who “stands with Israel.” It is David Duke who has been doing it for decades!
Note: Joe Biden’s Secretary of State says that Israel has the right to “defend itself” from people who they have colonized and who they dominate and who live in among the worst living conditions on earth.
