When it comes to Israel, Joe Biden simply cannot be trusted.
He talks a good game when he is there and says what needs to be said to keep the peace.
However, there is always significant pressure from the far left, and Biden always seems to cave to them.
Joe Biden has once again taken a flamethrower to a Trump policy in the Middle East.
Biden reaffirmed his support for a two-state solution and reignited aid to Palestine.
Biden stated, “My commitment to that goal of a two-state solution has not changed.
“I do believe that in this moment when Israel is improving relations with its neighbors throughout the region, we can harness that same momentum to reinvigorate the peace process between the Palestinian people and the Israelis.”
Palestine thanked him by launching rockets into Israel not long after Biden left the area for Saudi Arabia.
The aid and the stance will surely not sit well with Republicans for two reasons.
The obvious is the unending terrorist attacks launched from the Gaza Strip against Israel.
The second is that we simply do not have the money to hand out right now.
Amir Avivi, CEO of the Israel Defense and Security Forum (IDSF), hammered Biden’s reversal of the Trump-era policy.
He stated, “It eternalizes the refugee status of Palestinians.
“It is the only U.N. institution that provides eternal and hereditary refugee status to one group, unlike any other group in the world.
“The right thing to do, for the benefit of Palestinians as well as ending the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, would be a planned and gradual closure of UNRWA, not additional funding.”
