Joe Biden appears to be picking up where Barack Obama left off and Israel finds itself without an ally in the White House if Biden wins the election. Joe Biden has tapped a terrorist sympathizer for the post of White House Office of Legislative Affairs. Longtime Capitol Hill aide Reema Dodin was picked by Joe Biden.
During the Second Intifada, Dodin defended the terrorists.
Dodin, the daughter of Palestinian immigrants, said in 2002 that “suicide bombers were the last resort of a desperate people,” according to the Lodi News-Sentinel.
That is BS. If the terrorists would disappear tomorrow, the Palestinian people would receive better treatment from Israel than they have gotten from the Palestinian terrorists who rule over them.
In 2001, Dodin took part in a demonstration at the University of California Berkeley that called for the university to divest from Israel. Demonstrators compared Israel to apartheid South Africa.
“Comparing Israeli occupation of Palestine to South African Apartheid, the students said that UC had a moral charge not to invest in companies with strong economic ties to Israel,” the Berkeley Daily Planet wrote at the time.
Dodin claimed that pro-Israel groups on campus, who called for peace with Palestinians, were not serious about it.
“They say they want peace, but it’s a peace based on their rules,” Dodin said, adding that those rules don’t include a full Palestinian state that meets Palestinian demands.
The Palestinians were offered 90 percent of the West Bank, a Palestinian capital in East Jerusalem, and shared control of the Temple Mount holy site in 2000 at Camp David. Yassar Arafat turned the deal down as they would if it were offered again now because the Palestinians insist that Israel has no right to exist.
The reason that President Trump has been able to broker so many peace deals between Arab countries and Israel is because they have finally come to realize that the Palestinians are so unreasonable that it is against their best interests to align themselves with them. That and the fear of Iran would have led to more peace deals before Biden might win the election.
I hope Israel can survive a possible Biden/Harris administration.
