Israeli media are reporting widely that Biden knelt before Israeli President Rivlin’s chief of staff during Rivlin’s White House meeting with Biden. The chief of staff, Rivka Ravitz, is an ultra-orthodox Israeli who lived in an Israeli settlement for many years, where her husband was deputy mayor. Biden promised his support for Israel was ‘engraved in stone.’
Within hours after a ceasefire with Gaza begins, Israeli security forces raided the al Aqsa mosque after Friday prayers, claiming they were responding to stone-throwing. Meanwhile, Gaza digs out of the rubble left after 11 days of Israeli airstrikes.
Giraldi: Biden gives Israel more weapons even as Gaza is bleeding… Blocks UN measures… The U.S. has surrendered key aspects of its national sovereignty to Israeli control… Pro-Israel lobby influences policies down to state & local governments, schools… covers up Israeli attack on USS Liberty…
Video of members of both political parties pledging allegiance to Israel – thanks to the Israel lobby & its mega-donors – resulting in $10 million+ a day to Israel of US taxpayers’ money…
Major Jewish organization call on Biden to adopt an Israel-centric definition of antisemitism for use by all federal departments and agencies… the definition defines many criticisms of Israel as ‘antisemitic’… some groups oppose the action, calling its use an ‘attack on academic freedom& free speech’
See 30-second video being aired by the Democratic Majority For Israel PAC for Vice President Joe Biden, starting in Florida and then in other battleground states across the country. DMFI says the ad is “targeted to pro-Israel voters.” (The post also contains another video DMFI is unlikely to show voters…)
