Buttigieg says if the Israelis want to rob and slaughter another mass of Palestinians, well, he won’t pay for it.
That sounds like a platform written by the Israelis.
First, it’s entirely a statement about a material transaction (like Jared’s plan). As if human rights and justice are irrelevant. As if the American people won’t care so long as it doesn’t cost them money.
Second, it implicitly gives the Israelis a green light for another massive land theft, and the inevitable ethnic cleansing to keep the land “pure”.
Third, it sounds sort of tough on the Israelis at first glance, while being a swindle at its core.
This possibility would be entirely consistent with Buttigieg being a huge recipient of oligarchy money, and sitting in on an early “stop Bernie” meeting of the oligarchy wing of the Democratic party, despite being a virtual unknown politically. Buttigieg may have been tapped as an oligarchy political tool while in the Middle East, and bankrolled to become Mayor as a starting point. They may not have expected to run him for president so soon, but the emergency situation required it.
