Biden says Israel has 'ironclad' right to exist as independent state

In a statement to mark the Jewish Passover celebration, President Joe Biden said that Israel has an "ironclad" right to exist as an independent state, a departure from his recent attempts to pressure Israel into a cease-fire with Hamas.

“This holiday reminds us of a profound and powerful truth: that even in the face of persecution, if we hold on to faith, we shall endure and overcome,” Biden wrote. “We can never forget the horror of Hamas’ despicable atrocities.”

“My commitment to the safety of the Jewish people, the security of Israel, and its right to exist as an independent Jewish state is ironclad,” he continued.

Biden still wants Israel to try for a cease-fire with Hamas in exchange for the release of the remaining 100 hostages held by the terrorists.

Enduring peace

In other words, he's trying to appease the Squad and other pro-Palestinian Democrats who have been pressuring him to stop supporting Israel and force a cease-fire while still giving lip service to supporting Israel.

“My Administration is working around the clock to free the hostages, and we will not rest until we bring them home,” Biden said. “We will continue to work toward a two-state solution that provides equal security, prosperity, and enduring peace for Israelis and Palestinians.”

Despite Biden's efforts, a cease-fire does not seem likely any time soon.

In addition, the Israeli military is reported to be preparing to invade Rafah, where the hostages are likely being held and where most of the remaining high-level Hamas officials are holing up.

Talking points

The message also comes as Iran tried last week to attack Israel by firing 350 rockets at Israel after Israel targeted the Iranian Embassy in Syria, killing seven officials there.

In essence, the entire Middle East is out to destroy Israel, and its main ally America is not really providing much strength.

Biden did give some talking points about anti-Semitism, but what is he doing to stop it on college campuses like Columbia, which had to go to virtual classes this week because of threats against Jewish students?

“The ancient story of persecution against Jews in the Haggadah also reminds us that we must speak out against the alarming surge of Antisemitism — in our schools, communities, and online,” he said. “Silence is complicity.”

Like most things, Biden is mostly wrong on his Israel policy.

Those that don't want him out for supporting Israel want him out for pretending he does. It's not a good look for him, but what is these days?
