Schumer demands regime change in Israel

Reports already have surfaced that Israeli officials believe the Joe Biden administration is interfering in that nation's governance.

It came about when a U.S. intelligence report claimed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government "may be in jeopardy" amid ongoing criticism from Biden.

A "senior official" then said "Those who elect the prime minister of Israel are the citizens of Israel and no one else…. Israel is not a protectorate of the U.S. …"

But now a report from Fox News explains that Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., openly is calling for regime change in Israel.

He wants Israelis to replace Netanyahu with a new prime minister.

"In what was billed as a major speech on a two-state solution, Schumer said on the Senate floor on Thursday that Netanyahu was one of four obstacles to this solution," the report said.

Schumer claimed, "Prime Minister Netanyahu has lost his way by allowing his political survival to take precedence over the best interests of Israel."

Schumer classified Netanyahu with Hamas as obstacles.

Schumer, apparently ignoring the fact that Israelis already have held elections, insists on new ones.

He said new elections are "the only way to allow for a healthy and open decision-making process about the future of Israel."

Schumer based his demands that another nation submit to his will on his claim that Netanyahu is in league with "far-right extremists" in Israel's war on the terrorists in Hamas, who invaded last Oct. 7 and butchered some 1,200 civilians.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R–Ky., followed Schumer's demands with a recommendation that "The Jewish state of Israel deserves an ally that acts like one."

Michael Herzog, Israeli ambassador to the U.S., said on social media, "Israel is a sovereign democracy. It is unhelpful, all the more so as Israel is at war against the genocidal terror organization Hamas, to comment on the domestic political scene of a democratic ally. It is counterproductive to our common goals."
