An expert says much of the blame for the growing list of deaths and unmeasured destruction raining down on Israel because of a war launched by Hamas terrorists can be laid at the feet of Barack Obama and Joe Biden.
"The Obama administration and the Biden administration — this neo-Marxist Democratic regime that has been in place since 2009 — is anti-Israeli and pro-Iranian. Their foreign policy objective is to hand over the hegemony of the Middle East over to Iran," charged Chris Gacek, senior fellow for Regulatory Affairs at the Family Research Council.
"They have had one consistent objective: They’ve been trying for two administrations to undermine Israeli security. And they’ve lied about it," he said, according to a report in the Washington Stand.
Hamas terrorists launched their assault against Israel over the weekend, killing in cold blood hundreds of innocent civilians at a music festival, as well as hundreds more in settlements near Gaza.
But experts say that the deadly attack, which is ongoing, "could never have taken place without the active support of the last two Democratic administrations, which have supported radical Islam in order to correct the legacy of Western 'colonialism,'" the report said.
Among the victims are at least 11 Americans who were massacred along with the Israeli victims.
Experts said in the report Hamas never could have gained the strength or support without the 14 years of Obama and Biden ideologies in Washington.
They, after all, have transferred billions of dollars to "terrorist funders." And they've advanced Islamists' interests and hurt the U.S. with their anti-American agendas, the experts said.
Even Secretary of State Antony Blinken has confirmed that Iran "always" uses funds for supporting terrorism, "groups like Hamas."
Biden recently announced the release of $6 billion in ransom to Iran for the freedom of several Iranian-American prisoners. And Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., blasted Biden for "refusing" to freeze those funds against despite the terrorists' attack on Israelis.
Earlier, during the Obama-Biden reign in Washington, Iran was given $1.7 billion.
The report explained the pro-Iranian stance of Obama, "the ideological mover behind both administrations," stems from his "Marxist, anti-American, anti-Western, anti-Christian cosmology," Gacek said.
"Israel fits in there as a satellite that has to be destroyed. But American power also has to be destroyed," he said.
Obama confessed in a book, as a student, "I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists and punk-rock performance poets. We smoked cigarettes and wore leather jackets. At night, in the dorms, we discussed neocolonialism, Franz [sic.] Fanon, Eurocentrism, and patriarchy."
It was Obama who called for Iran to be "a regional power," and insisted on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action allowing the rogue regime to develop uranium products, the report said.
"Iran has since penetrated the highest diplomatic circles of the Obama and Biden administrations, according to a report late last month from Semafor.com. In 2014, the Iran Experts Initiative began seeking friendly experts to repeat its talking points. Three members of IEI became aides to Biden’s special envoy to Iran, Robert Malley. The administration revoked Malley’s security clearance in April but did not announce the reason until details appeared in the Iranian press. This summer, the Tehran Times published a recording of private conversations featuring the Biden administration’s White House coordinator for the Middle East and North Africa, Brett McGurk, discussing Iranian policy and leaked 'sensitive but unclassified' documents describing the controversy surrounding Malley," the report explained.
Multiple "Islamist activists" who worked with the Obama administration are members of the Muslim Brotherhood, Investors Business Daily documented in 2013.
It's part of the reason Democrat assessments of the Middle East have failed, as the current National Security Adviser, Jake Sullivan, said, two weeks before Hamas launched its war, that the "region is quieter today than it has been in two decades."
Gacek told the Stand that Israel's security apparatus also is showing gaps, as Egyptian intelligence had warned Israel Hamas was planning "something big."
