Threat of Another anti-Israel Presidency
by Steven Shamrak
Several years ago, there was one of the most anti-Israel US President in the White House – Barak Obama!
During his presidency, Israel was prevented from defending itself from a threat of nuclear-weaponized Iran. President Obama is alleged to have stopped an Israeli military attack against Iran's nuclear facilities in 2014 by threatening to shoot down Israeli jets before they could reach their targets. Instead, the Obama administration signed an agreement with Iran, allowing Iran’s nuclear program to progress!
It is not a secret that most international political anti-Semites despise the Jewish state, even before its creation! Although, at least, they have been keeping civility during official meetings with the Prime Ministers of Israel. It was not the case during Obama’s time in the White House. Obama showed great contempt and disrespect toward the PM of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu.
During the Obama presidency, Israel was pressured to freeze construction of Jewish settlements in Judea and Samaria, as by most presidents before him.
In May 2011, Obama said, “the borders of Israel and Palestine should be based on the 1967 lines…” - ignoring Jewish people rights to the land, as well as recent political and military history!
Joe Biden served as the 47th Vice President during the Obama administration from 2009 to 2017. He was part of this Israel-hating administration!
Joe Biden’s approach to the Middle East will be not very different from Obama’s, especially on Iran!
Biden has made clear that his highest foreign policy priorities will be to rejoin the Iran nuclear deal!
Biden will put pressure on Israel’s settlement policy and will resume financial aid to the PA!
The new administration will, most likely, return to the proven useless two-state formula, as it has no new ideas to offer!
