Covering up Israel’s true right-wing nature today is a key feature in biased coverage by the New York Times and the rest of the U.S. mainstream media. Failing to convey the Jewish Israeli enthusiasm for Donald Trump is only the latest example.
Some Trump officials are already attempting to stop an incoming Biden administration from returning to the nuclear deal.
Battle for Jewish voters. Trump brags of his “Yiddishkeit.” And on a Biden campaign call, Sarah Hurwitz, former Michelle Obama speechwriter, tells about the day she crunched into a wall at the White House so as not to get in Joe Biden’s way and the vice president said “Kid, you don’t have to do that,” as a demonstration of Jewish values of giving dignity to everyone you meet.
One of Joe Biden’s political achievements this year is that he has taken what seemed to be a big issue for Trump– Israel — out of the campaign. The Israel lobby trusts Biden because he promises to use American force overseas and try to end the politicization of the Israel issue here. Biden and Harris have actually run against their own Democratic base on Palestinian rights.
In a pre-election maneuver, the Trump administration just pressured Sudan into partially normalizing relations with Israel — with not even an exchange of ambassadors — but experts warn that the move could backfire, and jeopardize Sudan’s fragile democracy.
Biden surrogates are giving no oxygen to the progressive criticism of Israel. They are running Biden to Trump’s right on the issue, saying that by removing forces from Syria, Trump left Israel with “no one to rely on” and his politicization of the issue in the U.S. undermines support for “the Jewish state.”
Former Israeli ambassador Michael Oren says Joe Biden “deeply supports Israel,”
but he warns US Jews of “major policy differences” between Biden and Israel, on Palestine and Iran, and Iran threatens Israel’s children’s future. If Biden gets in, Israel is prepared to deal with him as it did with Obama.
At 30 years old, Joe Biden told Israeli PM Golda Meir “there is no debate in the Senate about the ME [Middle East] because the Senators are ‘afraid’ to say things that Jewish voters will dislike,” according to an Israeli document. The report shows Biden twice angrily took on Israeli prime ministers over illegal settlements, when he was young. Though his surrogates have sought to deny this.
U.S. Jewish support for Biden (70 percent) is similar to Palestinian support for Biden in Israel (78 percent). But Israeli Jews? They love Trump. Dems don’t want you to know these numbers because they show that our close ally is a rightwing ethnically-discriminatory state.
