Biden vows to restore financial aid to the Palestinians if he’s elected president in November; He would also voice support for the future of a two-state solution; Additionally, he would seek to reopen the Palestinian Liberation Organization office in Washington.
While elaborating on his plan to restore a political platform to the Palestinians, Democratic Presidential hopeful Joe Biden vowed to restore financial aid to the Palestinian cause and urged Israel not to make any decisions that would eradicate the possibility of a two-state solution, given Israel’s plans to annex the West Bank in the coming months.
Biden stated, “A priority now for the cause of Israeli-Palestinian peace should be resuming our dialogue with the Palestinians and pressing Israel not to take actions that make a two-state solution impossible.” He has voiced in the past his belief that Israel’s only opportunity for lasting peace is found in a two-state solution.
On Tuesday, Biden would further reveal his agenda to restore financial aid to the Palestinians and even voiced his support for the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO), adding, “I will reopen the US consulate in East Jerusalem, find a way to re-open the PLO’s diplomatic mission in Washington, and resume the decades-long economic and security assistance efforts to the Palestinians that the Trump Administration stopped.”
The Trump administration closed the PLO office in 2018 after the Palestinians continued to withhold any attempt of negotiating with the Jewish State.
In 2019, Biden said, “My administration will urge both sides to take steps to keep the prospect of a two-state outcome alive. Palestinian leaders should end the incitement and glorification of violence, and they must begin to level with their people about the legitimacy and permanence of Israel as a Jewish state in the historic homeland of the Jewish people,” which is interesting because he reveals the unavoidable truth that Israel has rights to the land where they reside.
So, the question remains; If Biden believes the Palestinians have a habit of inciting violence to communicate their intentions, why would he want to equip them with financial provisions? This is especially important to consider in light of the corruption of Hamas and its connections to the Iranian regime of terror.
