Joe Biden Blames Israel for future attacks on American troops -- Yet plays up to Syria, the major facilitator of terrorism in Iraq
Anti-Zionism is the anti-imperialism of fools
In a typical hypocritical or know-nothing outburst, US Vice President Joe Biden blamed Israel for future jihadist attacks on American troops because of Jerusalem housing plans. Yet the Obama administration plays up to Syria which has been actively facilitating the entry of jihadist terrorists from throughout the Arab world into Iraq for seven years. Here is Biden:
But in closed conversations, Joe Biden took an entirely different tone. . . .Syria actively trains and dispatches terrorists going into Iraq to kill American troops and fellow Arabs. But Syria is OK. Syria has been allowed by the United States to take over Lebanon using its terrorist proxies, the Hizbullah, but Syria is OK. No harsh words for Syria that actively endangers American troops in Iraq. But harsh words for Israel that is trying to provide housing for the Israeli population. Now if the Arabs are so bigoted about Jews exercising their human rights, then maybe Obama and Biden ought to take them to task for that.
People who heard what Biden said were stunned. “This is starting to get dangerous for us,” Biden castigated his interlocutors [Netanyahu & other Israelis]. “What you’re doing here undermines the security of our troops who are fighting in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan. That endangers us and it endangers regional peace.”
[quoted by Laura Rozen on Politico]
Furthermore, blaming Jews for future war was a trick that Hitler used, blaming the Jews in advance for bringing about a future world war when he himself was planning what became the world's most lethal war, with more dead than any previous war.
Biden went on:
The vice president told his Israeli hosts that since many people in the Muslim world perceived a connection between Israel’s actions and US policy, any decision about construction that undermines Palestinian rights in East Jerusalem could have an impact on the personal safety of American troops fighting against Islamic terrorism. [quoted by Laura Rozen on Politico ]So the human rights of Israeli Jews depend on whether prejudiced, bigoted Arabs are bothered by the Jews' exercise of those rights. In fact, neither the PLO/Palestinian Authority nor the Arab League made a halt of Jewish housing construction anywhere a condition for negotiations, until Obama's administration demanded that Israel stop building housing for Jews. But neither the PLO/PA nor the Arab League could afford to be "less Arab" than the president of the United States, so the Arabs followed suit after Obama & Co. So the Obama administration and State Dept are promoting the denial of Jewish human rights in practice. Actually several Arab governments are bothered more by Obama's inaction on the Iranian bomb project --and the concealment of --misrepresentation of-- Arab fear and opposition to the Iranian bomb, than they are by Jewish construction in Jerusalem. What Obama, Biden, H Clinton and the State Dept are doing is using the Arabs' presumed sentiments and prejudices as a tool or pretext for pressuring Israel to give up Jewish rights. Truly a sinister policy in line with that of the Euro Nazis [see our previous post].
Here's more Biden:
Beyond his desire to allay Israel’s fears about the Iranian nuclear threat, Biden asked the Israeli decision-makers to show the same degree of understanding and sensitivity to the United States’ interests in the Middle East and the military campaign that it is currently waging against radical Islamic agents in Afghanistan and Pakistan. [here]How about Biden showing "understanding and sensitivity" for Jewish human rights?
Washington is getting itself into a very ugly and repulsive mood that they justify by fake concern for American troops fighting Islamic terrorists. Where was and is Washington's concern over Syrian help for the terrorists operating in Iraq since 2003?? When did any US official ever vehemently denounce Syria, using strong words like "condemn," for facilitating the mass murderous terrorism in Iraq?? Of course, there may have been some powder puff words of mild indignation about Syria from time to time, which told the Assad gang that the United States government was really not very upset with them. But neither Obama and his crew nor George Bush II and his crew ever said anything to compare with the word "condemn" now used for Jews building homes in Jerusalem.
The Obama administration is an enemy of Jewish human and civil rights. Decent Jews will stand up against the Obama policy of anti-Jewish racism. David Axelrod and Rahm Emanuel are kapos.
