From the Iran Nuclear Deal to the funding of Netanyahu’s opponent, one does not need to look too far into history in order to grasp what a Biden administration would look like for the Jewish State – and it’s not good.
For the individual(s) wondering what a Biden administration would like for the nation of Israel, there is a public track record that speaks for itself. In his tenure as a US Senator (D-DE), and in his eight years as vice president to Barack Hussein Obama, Joe Biden was no friend to the Jewish State.
Most recently, in his time as vice president, it was the Biden-Obama administration that oversaw and was directly responsible for the lowest point ever in Israel-US relations. And the hypocrisy behind the scenes was astounding. After refusing to meet with Netanyahu during an election season, the Biden-Obama administration not only communicated with Netanyahu’s opponent, but sent hundreds of thousands of US tax-payer dollars to an organization that eventually campaigned against him.
Furthermore, it was the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), or Iran Nuclear Deal, that further abused the Israel-US relationship. It was the Biden-Obama administration that paid Iran billions of dollars in taxpayer money in exchange for the Iranians to be transparent regarding their nuclear production, holding them accountable to specific limits. However, accountability was anything but a reality. What really happened was the further enabling of the Iranian regime to build its nuclear arsenal.
Israel is the stabilizing nation of the Middle East. And sadly, under the Biden-Obama tenure, the US supported the destabilizing efforts of the Iranian terror regime. This was one of the most harmful, ignorant international deals to date.
If his involvement in the previous administration isn’t enough to know how reckless his foreign policy is, perhaps it would be worthwhile to review his time as a US senator.
It was in 1982 that then Prime Minister Menachem Begin spoke to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, only to be threatened by then US Senator Joe Biden, who warned he would cut financial aid to the Jewish State if it didn’t cease its actions in the West Bank (Judea & Samaria).
In response to this threat, Begin replied, “Don’t threaten us with cutting off your aid. It will not work. I am not a Jew with trembling knees. I am a proud Jew with 3,700 years of civilized history. Nobody came to our aid when we were dying in the gas chambers and ovens. Nobody came to our aid when we were striving to create our country. We paid for it. We fought for it. We died for it. We will stand by our principles. We will defend them. And, when necessary, we will die for them again, with or without your aid.”
In conclusion, when you align yourself as a friend to the world’s number one sponsor of terror, you’re no friend of Israel. Understand that Biden was willing to give billions of taxpayer dollars to the Iranian terror regime after threatening to withhold all foreign aid from Israel if they took action in their own land – the land God gave to them.
The track record of Joe Biden is anything but pro-Israel, and the man has been involved in US politics for nearly 50 years. Riding on the back of several Obama administration talking points, one can expect Biden’s foreign policy in relation to Israel to reflect that from 2009-2017.
