Pro-Palestine Democrats Will Never Forgive Joe Biden

Despite all of his efforts to make the Hamas Caucus like him, it appears that Joe Biden will never be able to reconcile with crucial elements of the Democratic base in Michigan. Although he’s moved away from fully supporting America’s closest ally in the Middle East, the president has begun to realize it’s never enough for those who hate Israel. 

Biden’s decision to effectively launch a boycott against Israel in an effort to prevent the destruction of Hamas marked a significant shift in U.S. policy, fulfilling demands of Arab American and Muslim leaders and sparking outrage among some in the president’s own party. 

After the concessions from the White House, supporters of Palestine has one message for the White House: screw you. 

Too little, too late, reports The New York Times

“The president’s announcement is extremely overdue and horribly insufficient,” said Abbas Alawieh, one of the leaders of a protest-vote movement against Mr. Biden that began in Michigan this year. “He needs to come out against this war. Period. That would be significant.”

Mr. Biden’s White House aides engaged in considerable outreach at the outset of the Democratic primary season, when the movement to cast protest votes in early states emerged as a surprising political headache. A cadre of high-level aides traveled to Dearborn, Mich., and Chicago to demonstrate their interest in listening, but Arab American leaders told them that without a momentous shift in U.S. policy — such as support for a permanent cease-fire — there was no need to keep talking.

By and large, prominent Muslim and Arab Americans have now concluded that they are irrevocably at odds with the Biden administration over its foreign policy, according to interviews with more than a dozen people involved in the talks. And many of them say they are tired of hearing that they should vote for Mr. Biden simply because former President Donald J. Trump would be worse.

“I have told them frankly: ‘Don’t waste your time anymore unless you have something substantial. This is a waste of time,’” Osama Siblani, the publisher of The Arab American News, an influential newspaper in Dearborn, said of White House officials.

In April, New Conservative Post reported that to celebrate the end of Ramadan featured shouts of “Death to America” and “Death to Israel” during an International Al-Quds Day rally held in Dearborn.

“Imam Khomeini, who declared the International Al-Quds Day, this is why he would say to pour all of your chants and all of your shouts upon the head of America,” Tarek Bazzi, a Michigan-based activist associated with the Hadi institute, said in a video from the rally that was shared by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI),” according to Fox News.

“Bazzi’s comments were followed by crowds chanting “Death to America!” in the background.

The activist went on to quote Malcolm X, who said the U.S. is “one of the rottenest countries that has ever existed on this Earth,” while arguing to eliminate the entire American “system.”

‘It’s not just Genocide Joe that has to go,’ Bazzi said, referring to President Biden. ‘It is the entire system that has to go. Any system that would allow such atrocities and such devilry to happen and would support it – such a system does not deserve to exist on God’s Earth.’”

Although the protests were condemned by Democrats, Biden still took them to heart and has begun putting the lives of American soldiers in danger to build a pier near Gaza to help bring in “humanitarian aid” for Palestinians. 

The aid has thus far been stolen by Hamas and the terrorist group has fired upon the pier. 

Biden has promised that we will not have boots on the ground in Gaza, but when Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin was pressed on whether those stationed on the pier have the ability to defend themselves, he waffled. 

The New York Post noted that “Democrats also raised questions about the potential implications of a Hamas attack on US troops on the pier, though the party has generally been more enthusiastic about delivering humanitarian aid to Gaza.

Elissa Slotkin (D-Mich.) questioned Austin about whether putting US forces under threat of attack could provoke a wider conflict after the defense secretary said the ‘Israelis will provide additional security in the area.”

‘As many as 1,000 US uniformed officers are going to be involved in setting up here; a smaller number will be resident there,’ she said. ‘If we are shot at – if more artillery is shot at us – who is responding and with what operating procedures is that military responding?’”

Austin declined to detail how such a response might play out.
