Joe Biden stood by saying nothing at all as Palestinian Chairman Mahmoud Abbas directly called for the end of Israel in a press conference.
This is nothing less than a full betrayal of Israel and an endorsement of another holocaust against the Jews by a U.S. President.
On July 15, during Biden’s press conference on the West Bank in Bethlehem, Abbas directly called to end “74 years of… occupation” in the region. That is a direct reference to the founding of the modern state of Israel.
Per the https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefing-room/speeches-remarks/2022/07/15/remarks-by-president-biden-and-president-abbas-of-the-palestinian-national-authority-in-joint-press-statement-bethlehem-west-bank/White House transcript:
After 74 years of Nakba [i.e., “the catastrophe,” the establishment of Israel], expulsion, and occupation, has the time not come for this occupation to end, for our people that is standing firm to achieve its freedom and independence, and for the wishes of our young men and women… to be realized in a promising future without occupation?
Abbas went on…
In this regard, we say that the key to peace and security in our region begins with recognizing state of Palestine and enabling the Palestinian people to obtain their legitimate rights in accordance with international legitimacy resolutions, and ending all the permanent status issues, including the Palestinian refugees issue.
And the way to that begins with ending the Israeli occupation of our land, the land of state of Palestine, with East Jerusalem as its capital, on the 1967 borders.
This is a direct proclamation of the wiping of Israel off the map.
And the gaping, senile, useless American president stood there grinning like a Cheshire Cat in happy accord with this terrorist leader.
Again, there is NO such people as the “Palestinian.” There is not now, nor ever been a country called Palestine.
Mahmoud Abbas is a genocidal terrorist and Joe Biden just endorsed his need to end Israel.
It is hard to just assume that Biden was blindsided by Abbas, or that he was not even cognizant of the whole thing. After all, Biden also eliminated the Israeli flag from the presidential limo when he visited the East Jerusalem. Imagine that.Commentary
