Biden Takes Softer Stance on Ousting of Netanyahu

Joe Biden caused quite a stir last week when he backed up comments made by Senator Schumer (D-N.Y.) on the Senate floor.

Schumer stated that he supported a new election in Israel to remove Netanyahu from power.

Biden initially stated that he thought Schumer gave a great speech, but after significant pushback, Biden has changed his tune.

That is Election Interference

During his floor speech on Thursday, Schumer stated, “At this critical juncture, I believe a new election is the only way to allow for a healthy and open decision-making process about the future of Israel at a time when so many Israelis have lost their confidence in the vision and direction of their government.”

Since Joe Biden rarely shows his face to the media, they had no choice but to go after spokesman John Kirby the next time he took the podium.

Kirby tried to soft-pedal his way around the question of Netanyahu being an impediment to peace, as Schumer had stated.

Kirby first responded, “These are two men — leaders that have known each other a long time, Shannon, and they don’t agree on everything, haven’t over 40 years. And there are certain aspects to the prosecution of operations in Gaza where we obviously don’t agree with everything that Israel has done.

“But they have a relationship where they can talk to one another, and they do, and they will again. He is the prime minister of Israel, and we respect the sovereignty of the Israeli people.”

The media continued to press Kirby, and he finally responded, “The president believes it’s up to the Israeli people and the Israeli government to determine if and when there’s going to be new elections.”

What he should have said was that Schumer was completely out of line in what he said.

Let me put it this way… what Schumer said would be akin to Israel having stated that we needed to have a special election after 9/11 for the aggressive nature in which the Bush administration was responding to the terror attack on our soil on 9/11.

We would not have stood for that, and neither should Israel.

When you consider how hard it is to fight Hamas, a terrorist organization that hides behind civilians, it is miraculous that there is “only” a 2:1 ratio of civilians to Hamas fighters killed in this conflict.

For better context, consider that during WWIII, the ratio was between 3:2 and 2:1. During the Korean War, that ratio was 3:1.

My point is that the death toll in this war is very much in line with other wars, yet Democrats are acting as though this is genocide against the people of Palestine, who, by the way, are doing nothing to help Israel fight Hamas.

Netanyahu is trying to rid the world of a terrorist organization that invaded his country, then kidnapped women, children, and elderly, as well as raping and parading naked women around Palestine to the cheers of locals.

No, Netanyahu is not the problem here… end of discussion.
