Biden May Sacrifice Israel, or Tlaib is Aiding and Abetting Terrorists

 

The people in Dearborn, MI seem to think that they can singlehandedly determine whether President Biden wins the election in November. With those who have joined up to sabotage his election run, including local Dearborn officials and Rep. Rashida Tlaib, who is essentially supporting terrorism, it could have an impact on election results.

But will the effect be as consequential as Democrats and Joe Biden believe?

Let me explain my thinking.

First, Rashida Tlaib has been campaigning for Biden to side with Hamas in the Gaza War. For a resolution condemning the rape and sexual violence ordered by Hamas and carried out by their followers, Tlaib refused to vote. In addition, she was censured:

In November, the House censured Tlaib for having ‘defended the brutal rapes, murders, beheadings, and kidnapping — including of Americans — by Hamas as justified.’

Only 22 Democrats voted in support of that Republican-led resolution.

Tlaib, a Palestinian American and member of the progressive ‘Squad,’ received the rebuke for promoting ‘false narratives’ about the war on her social media account and posting the phrase ‘From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.’

So, a number of issues have developed. In some ways, Tlaib is betraying not only the Democrats, but also the support of a long-term ally, Israel; she has told anyone who will listen in Michigan that they should vote “uncommitted” rather than vote for Joe Biden in today’s Democrat primary. She is demonstrating her support of Hamas, the organization that took hostages (including Americans), but has violated every tenet of lawful war and has committed war crimes.

Meanwhile, Biden has sent representatives to talk to Arab constituents in Dearborn (although he hasn’t gone himself). He’s worried that enough of those voters could refuse to vote for him, not only in the primary but in November, and compromise his victory, even though the Arab population is only 2.1% in Michigan..

Will he become desperate enough to shift his positions on Israel? Will he try to force them into an absurd hostage swap where Hamas has demanded an exchange of thousands of Palestinian prisoners for only some of the hostages? Will he insist on an unreasonable cease fire that would jeopardize Israel’s ability to be successful in this war? Will he require plans for a two-state solution, rewarding the Palestinians for their horrific October 7 attack?

As an aside, people periodically voice their concerns about American Jews who support Israel, saying their allegiances are compromised between the two countries.

I think that’s exactly the position that Rashida Tlaib is in, too, between the U.S. and Gaza.

    If it helps FJB lose, they should have at it.  There’s no reason to believe Trump would turn on Israel.

    I’m in complete agreement. I just don’t want Biden to renege on his help to Israel.

    This rhetoric is so extreme, and this view is completely out of touch with reality, I think.

    You’re complaining about one single Representative in a Congress that overwhelmingly supports Israel.  But that’s not enough for you.

    You’re complaining about Biden sacrificing Israel.  This is simply delusional.  I cannot understand how you think this, Susan.  Biden — and virtually every other American politician — have provided overwhelming, unwavering support of Israel.  Our President has provided the weapons that the Israelis have used to kill about 20,000 Palestinian women and children.

    20,ooo DEAD PALESTINIAN WOMEN AND CHILDREN.  

    But the Israelis are trying to do so much more.  They’ve been trying to starve over 2 million civilians.

    STARVE OVER 2 MILLION CIVILIANS.

    It’s a horrible thing that the Israelis are doing.  But the Israelis manage to go further.  They claim to be the victims as they mete out slaughter and starvation.

    If that isn’t terrorism, what is?  Mass slaughter of civilians to accomplish a political end.  The Israelis have been doing that since before they were a state.

    It’s being aided and abetted by Biden.

    Maybe.  To the extent TPTB don’t fake-vote on behalf of people they actually expect to vote for them, and instead concentrate on sending in ballots from the dead etc, it could still shift the margin some.

    What is his position on anything? He has no moral core so far as I can see. I am surprised that he has lended as much aid as he has t0 Israel thus far. Maybe just to try and attach strings that he could pull. Of course, by “he” I am referring to what enterprise is actually in charge.

    Joe Biden is already sacrificing America. I see no reason he wouldn’t sacrifice Israel, too.

    I’m sure he’d sacrifice everyone and anyone as long as he got his cut.

    Tlaib and Dearborn, Michigan has some interesting history in the United States.

    February 22, 2011

    The Thomas More Law Center (TMLC) announced today that the City of Dearborn, its Mayor, John B. O’Reilly, its Chief of Police, Ronald Haddad, 17 City police officers, and two executives of the American Arab Chamber of Commerce were named as defendants in a ninety-six page federal civil rights lawsuit filed in the Federal District Court in Detroit this morning.

    The lawsuit, brought by TMLC and co-counsel and Sharia law expert, David Yerushalmi, stems from two separate police actions at the June 2010 Dearborn, Michigan Annual International Arab Festival.

    Richard Thompson, TMLC President and Chief Counsel, commented, “Muslims dominate the political and law enforcement process in Dearborn.  It seems that police were more interested in placating the Mayor and Muslims than obeying our Constitution.  Sharia law makes it a crime to preach the Gospel to Muslims.  This is a classic example of stealth Jihad being waged right here in America.  And it should be a wake-up call for all patriotic Americans.”

    The first incident occurred on June 18, when police jailed four Christian missionaries when they witnessed Dr. Nabeel Qureshi, a Muslim convert to Christianity, peaceably discussing his Christian faith with Muslim youths.  The other three, David Wood, Paul Rezkalla, and Negeen Mayel, were arrested along with Qureshi for allegedly “breaching the peace.”  The Christians were led away in handcuffs by police to the applause and cheers of Muslim onlookers who just witnessed a victory of Sharia law over the Christians.

    Tlaib is no respecter of the Rights to Free Speech, or any oath to uphold the US Constitution. You can read the entire story by clicking on the link. Her martyrs are rapists and those who cannot build anything other than tunnels with the help of useful idiots like the UN and Joe Biden, a man who will buy votes any way he can.

    I’m going to given an example of Susan’s rhetoric, which I find extreme, and her view of reality, which I find to be out of touch with it.  You need look no further than the first sentence of the OP:

    Susan Quinn: The people in Dearborn, MI seem to think that they can singlehandedly determine whether President Biden wins the election in November.

    What a bizarre way to frame things.

    This is what ideological possession does to a person, I think.  It is what overwhelming allegiance to a cause does to a person, I think.

    Because there is an alternative explanation.  You see, the people in Dearborn, Michigan think that they are citizens of the United States who have the right to vote as they please.

    They’re not doing anything to “singlehandedly” determine the outcome of an election.  That is impossible.  Obviously.

    But they get to express their preference, like everyone else.

    Except Susan thinks that there’s something wrong with that, apparently.  I think that Susan’s view is not just extreme and out of touch with reality, but is inconsistent with our form of government.  At least, as expressed here.

    Because, again, this is what ideological possession does to a person.  Under the spell of Zionism, one will do or say almost anything.

    Zionism is not the only ideology with this effect.  It is the one that is manifesting here.

    That is because Jerry is a demented Jew-hating heretic. I personally trust that my Jewish Messiah, Jesus of Nazareth, will consign his soul to hell should he not repent of his sins. Which are many and manifest. The egregious and thoroughly repellent violations of the ninth commandment with respect to you, in particular.

    Guys, I think a literal charity is due here. And let’s not mind read the mind of G-d or Jerry. Just ignore/flag offensive comments. If all Jerry hears is the echo of his own voice then there will be less energy. If we are free speech advocates we let people reveal themselves. If there is constructive counterpoints to be expressed, express them. But if it is known to be fruitless, better to not respond.

    There’s value to your comment, Rodin. When we engage him (including my asking him to go away) we add fuel to his angry fire. At the same time, I understand people become enraged at his comments, and feel they need to tell him his comments are inappropriate. I’m not sure which approach is best.
