As you all know, Hamas launched an unprovoked attack against Israel this weekend.
The response by all U.S. officials should have been one of strength to Israel, not telling them to stand down.
However, that is exactly what the U.S. Office of Palestinian Affairs did post on X.
This was the original post that the office put up on X…
“We unequivocally condemn the attack of Hamas terrorists and the loss of life that has incurred. We urge all sides to refrain from violence and retaliatory attacks. Terror and violence solve nothing.”
Now, since the post was made through the official account, it is a fairly safe assumption that the person who made the post has the authority to speak on behalf of the office and by default, our State Department.
After the response went viral, and not in a good way, it suddenly disappeared.
After the post was taken down off X, the State Department released the following statement:
“This tweet was not approved and does not represent U.S. policy. The United States condemns the terrorist attack against Israel and unequivocally supports Israel’s right to defend itself, as the President and Secretary have both made clear.”
The damage was done, however, and Rep. Claudia Tenney (R-N.Y.) pounced.
She stated, “It was egregious for the administration to look as if this was both sides. This is a clear attack from Hamas, sponsored by Iran, against our greatest ally. This is not about Israel…doing anything aggressive. They need to stand up, and they need to defend their citizens. I’m with Netanyahu 100% on this. The Israelis need to stand strong, and we need to be with them.”
She added, “That tells me that the administration is not standing up for Israel. Their initial response was to condemn both sides, instead of condemning the aggressor here, and not standing up for our democratic, best ally, really shameful on the [part of the] Biden administration. … I really worry that China’s going to make its move on Taiwan at some point, because of the weakness and the failed policies of this Biden administration.”
I am not buying the excuse that some rogue actor made that post. I think we have officials in that office that are terrorist sympathizers.
We have done reports before on communications between Biden officials and Iranian officials that raised a lot of questions about loyalty.
Or how about the comments by Rep. Tlaib (D-MI), who rather than call out the Hamas terror group, chose to attack Israel?
She stated, “I grieve the Palestinian and Israeli lives lost yesterday, today, and every day. I am determined as ever to fight for a just future where everyone can live in peace, without fear and with true freedom, equal rights, and human dignity.
“The path to that future must include lifting the blockade, ending the occupation, and dismantling the apartheid system that creates the suffocating, dehumanizing conditions that can lead to resistance.”
So now Israel is an “apartheid system.” Remember, that is a comment that came from a United States congresswoman.
Make no mistake about it… the enemy has infiltrated our government.
