Biden administration’s newest anti-Israel move has millions outraged

The Radical Left has taken a strong stance regarding the war in Israel. But now, they have crossed a line.

Because the Biden administration’s newest anti-Israel move has angered millions.

The Biden administration has put a halt to a shipment of ammunition that was previously approved for delivery to Israel as part of its ongoing conflict with Hamas.

This unprecedented move comes as Israel grapples with the aftermath of a brutal attack by Hamas in October, which left 1,200 people dead, prompting a strong retaliation from Israel.

According to reports from two Israeli officials who spoke to Axios, the ammunition delivery was stopped last week, marking a significant shift in U.S.-Israel relations.

The White House has yet to issue an official statement explaining this decision.

However, the suspension has left many people concerned about the future of U.S. support for its longstanding ally in the Middle East.

In April, prominent Democratic lawmakers, including Nancy Pelosi, called on President Biden to halt arms sales to Israel, highlighting growing divisions within the Democratic Party on this issue.

In their letter, they referred to an Israeli airstrike that inadvertently killed several humanitarian workers, deeming weapons transfers to Israel “unjustifiable” in light of such incidents.

This stance is in stark contrast to their support for sending munitions to Ukraine, underscoring a broader shift in the party’s approach to international conflict and ally support.

The recent decision to suspend the ammunition shipment comes amidst increasing criticism from within Biden’s political base.

Many left-wing activists have been vocal in their demands for the U.S. to distance itself from Israel, putting pressure on the administration to reconsider its stance.

This growing sentiment was echoed during U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s recent visit to Israel, where he cautioned Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu against continued military operations in Rafah, a city in southern Gaza.

Blinken warned that such actions could strain U.S.-Israel relations, potentially forcing the U.S. to publicly disavow the decision.

Netanyahu has been clear about Israel’s intention to invade Rafah, a city with a checkpoint between Gaza and Egypt that Egypt strictly controls to prevent Palestinians from entering its territory.

This has led to ongoing negotiations for a ceasefire with Hamas and efforts to secure the release of hostages, although Hamas has rejected many of these attempts.

The U.S. administration’s halt of the ammunition shipment is seen as a clear message to Israel, emphasizing the potential consequences of continued military action.

During Holocaust Remembrance Day, Netanyahu alluded to his disappointment with the perceived weakening of U.S. support for Israel.

“In the terrible Holocaust, there were great world leaders who stood by idly; therefore, the first lesson of the Holocaust is: If we do not defend ourselves, nobody will defend us. And if we need to stand alone, we will stand alone,” he stated, suggesting that Israel may have to act independently if U.S. support continues to wane.

In light of these events, the Biden administration’s position on U.S.-Israel relations remains under scrutiny.

Last February, the administration requested assurances from Israel that U.S.-made weapons would be used in compliance with international law, a commitment Israel affirmed in a letter in March.

However, the suspension of the ammunition shipment indicates a potential shift in U.S. policy toward Israel, raising questions about the future of this crucial alliance.

Can anybody be more twisted than this man they say we elected?
I don’t know if our country has 6 months left if he remains in charge.
