They called for a cease-fire, they gathered together as a group to call for peace, but if Israel and Hamas started getting along tomorrow it’d be a horrible day for the Democrats. It’s interesting that Biden and the Democrats have been calling for a cease-fire between Israel and Hamas. There seems to be a disconnect between their words and what they benefit from.
For one, 28 Democrat senators signed a statement calling for Israel and Hamas to reach a cease-fire agreement. It was signed by all the who’s who of the Democraterati, including Schumer, Durbin, Pelosi, and Ossoff.
“To prevent any further loss of civilian life and to prevent further escalation of conflict in Israel and the Palestinian territories, we urge an immediate ceasefire,” the statement said.
Funny enough, this statement from Democrats came about after the Biden admin blocked a joint statement from the United Nations calling for a cease-fire as well. Weirdly, it was the Biden administration that told Netanyahu directly that they wanted a “significant de-escalation” of hostilities, a request that Netanyahu brushed off.
This was all occurring as the Biden administration sold $735 million worth of munitions to Israel to aid in their fight against Hamas. As the Washington Post reported, the bulk of the purchase is Joint Direct Attack Munitions, or JDAMS, which turn “dumb” bombs into precision-guided missiles. These then allow Israel to avoid as many civilian deaths in Gaza as possible, though they still have to deal with the fact that Hamas loves using civilians, especially children, as human shields.
During the Trump administration, it was all quiet on the Middle Eastern front thanks to Trump’s commitment to backing Israel and his attempt at making peace, not just through strength, but mutually beneficial trade deals. Trump stripped funding to various Islamic groups that actually funded terror and came down on Iran so hard that they actually stayed pretty quiet after he showed them he meant business.
Then Biden got into office and it was no longer peace through strength and trade, it was peace through uh…uh, peace through the uh…anyway.
Next thing you know, conflicts get turned up to 11 and the Biden administration is making a profit.
It gets even worse, too.
Those missiles with American guidance systems will eventually hit civilians and kill children. Hamas will see to that. As I reported earlier Wednesday, one Gazan man was on the phone with the Israeli Defense Force telling him that if his kids had to die at their hands, then they had to die, because then he could use that to show the world how cruel Israel is. Keep in mind that Israel called him because they warned him they were going to bomb the building he was in as Hamas was nesting there, and they didn’t want innocents to die, especially children.
So these children die and Hamas uses that for PR purposes, and nobody loves this more than the progressive left and the American media.
The hard left gets two benefits out of this.
For one, the hatred of Judeo-Christian values is a driving force for many on the left and nothing drives them crazier than a Jewish state merely existing. It especially makes them bonkers that the American religious right has their back. So they scratch their anti-Christian itch with BDS movements and claim that people in the United States are getting kickbacks from Israel to continue allowing a Zionist state to exist where there should be none.
This benefits the Democrats because of the left’s proclamations that Israel is an apartheid state who loves nothing more than killing children and displacing people from their rightful land is supported by those evil Republicans and it’s one more reason not to vote for them.
The truth is, Israel is not an apartheid state and it’s Hamas who is making sure the children die. That means absolutely nothing to the hard-left however. It profits them nothing to see reality.
Democrats and the left want the Israelis to fight for their lives. It makes them money, gives them narratives and gives voters another reason to hate Republicans.
Why would they ever give that up?
