Biden Calls for Investigation Into Israel Strikes on Terrorists



The president has two faces.

Here’s one paragraph

My support for Israel’s security is long-standing and unwavering—including its right to defend itself against attacks.  Over these recent days, Israel has defended its people from indiscriminate rocket attacks launched by the terrorist group Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and the United States is proud of our support for Israel’s Iron-Dome, which intercepted hundreds of rockets and saved countless lives.  I commend Prime Minister Yair Lapid and his government’s steady leadership throughout the crisis. 

Here’s the next one

The reports of civilian casualties in Gaza are a tragedy, whether by Israeli strikes against Islamic Jihad positions or the dozens of Islamic Jihad rockets that reportedly fell inside Gaza.  My Administration supports a timely and thorough investigation into all of these reports, and we also call on all parties to fully implement the ceasefire, and to ensure fuel and humanitarian supplies are flowing into Gaza as the fighting subsides.

Biden giveth from one side of his mouth and taketh away from the other.

After supposedly endorsing Israel’s right to defend itself, a boilerplate talking point that even Obama regularly brought out, there’s a call for “a timely and thorough investigation”. Who will be doing the investigating? International bodies? The same State Department smear campaign that occurred during the Shireen Abu Akleh, in which implication and innuendo were used in the absence of evidence?   

A statement of support followed by a call for an investigation is self-negating. 

Biden isn’t expressing support for Israel. Like Obama, he’s cloaking his opposition in generic positive statements while the specifics are a stab on the back.
