Binyamin Netanyahu puts his thumb in Joe Biden’s eye. And Biden lets him get away with it.

Joe Biden was undoubtedly desperate for the State Department to find that Israel has not committed war crimes. And so it likely will.[2] They should have taken Chris Van Hollen’s advice:

The State Department report must be “seen to be based on facts and law, and not based on what they would wish it would be,” Sen. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.), who pushed for the national security memorandum, said last week.[3]

Only Zionists will believe this report while Biden is losing credibility even on[4] his threat to withhold offensive weapons in the event of a Rafah invasion.[5]

[Joe Biden] said invading Rafah was a red line. Israel invaded Rafah anyway, bombing buildings, burning and crushing children to death. Biden is now moving the goal post by adding a completely subjective descriptor: ‘Major.’ Now Israel has a green light to destroy Rafah in slow motion.[6]

We need to understand that Biden is a genocidal Zionist, determined to support Israel regardless. There can be absolutely no excuse for voting for him (let alone his opponent).
