A Lifetime of Corruption
Predictably, the Regime in Washington, led by coup leader Joe Biden, is displaying outright hostility to Israel. I’ve written many times about the failed policy known as “Oslo,” the land-for-peace failure conjured up first by the globalist George Herbert Walker Bush and his foreign policy team. Hatched finally in 1993 by Clinton, we are now 30 years into the scheme to pressure Israel into surrendering her sovereignty.
Only a brief respite from Donald Trump has interrupted this hair-brained nonsense. Coddling the Palestinians leads to nothing but death for Jews.
So it was I almost yawned this week when I saw that “new envoy” Tom Nides forcefully said that he won’t visit any Jewish community in Judea/Samara. (Note: this sentence would read “any settlement in the West Bank.”)
Check out this lead from the Times of Israel:
“Breaking from annexation-backing predecessor, Tom Nides tells Hebrew paper he’s entering job with ‘no ideology,’ says unlike Trump, Biden believes US must care for Palestinians.”
The literally constant lies from Washington infuriate me. Of course Nides has an ideology; he just stated it when he said he wouldn’t visit a Jewish community. His ideology, like that of his handlers in Washington, is that Israel is illegitimate. Palestinians are mistreated. Et cetera. Nides’ boss, Biden, has been corrupt from the start; his poisonous ideology is shot-through with left-wing thought.
Nides even went so far as to respond “I absolutely will not,” when pressed on the issue of visiting.
That’s hardcore ideology, folks.
He goes on to say in an interview that (somehow) Israel will “be strengthened” by Washington’s insistence on coddling the Arabs. This is patently absurd and contradictory, so long as the PA/PLO insists Israel is illegitimate.
Chillingly, Nides said that Biden aims to support the two-state solution “in actions, not just words.” This way, they are telegraphing that they intend to seriously pressure Israel to give up land.
The new US Ambassador is also in the middle of a humorous situation involving his housing. For years, US envoys lived on an estate on the coast, near Herzliya. But Trump sold the property two years ago to Sheldon Adelson (LOL!), so it forces new diplomats to live elsewhere.
Don’t cry for Nides, though. Former Israeli Ambassador David Friedman lived in a suite at the King David Hotel in Jerusalem. I’ve stayed at the King David—a bucket list item if there ever was one—and the suite is probably two grand a night.
Anyway, Biden’s destructive, corrosive policies will lead to nothing but mischief.
Nides did go on to say Jerusalem is Israel’s capitol, a departure from previous left-wing regimes in Washington (see Obama, Barack). The truth is, everyone knows this, even the Arabs.
My late friend Moshe Aumann, an Israeli diplomat for decades, wrote in 1968, months after the Six Day War, that Israel planned for a population of 850,000 in the capitol by 2010. In actuality, by 2016, Jerusalem had 874,000! More Israeli precision in planning.
I believe Jerusalem will always be Israel’s capitol. I also believe Biden and Nides are liars and fervently hope to see a Palestinian capitol in the Golden City.
It will never happen. The Lord of Hosts has spoken.
