To America’s Detriment, The Biden Administration Is Actively Stabbing Israel In The Back

Robert Gottselig

Lately, the Biden administration seems more interested in appeasing their anti-Israel left-wing base than standing with Israel, and in doing so, they are doing nothing more than stabbing Israel in the back.

Under Biden, the Democrats’ support for Israel has been wavering. One minute, they’re with Israel, supporting their right to defend themselves against the terrorist group Hamas, and the next minute, the Democrats under Biden are telling Israel to end the war and not to go into Rafah, leaving Hamas a victory and to live another day.

If you remember, in early May, Biden told Netanyahu that if Israel entered Rafah, the US would block specific weapons from being sent to the Jewish State. Then, at the end of May, Biden released a three-phase plan that he falsely claimed Israel had accepted. Here’s what Biden proposed:

This new proposal has three phases — three.

The first phase would last for six weeks.  Here’s what it would include: a full and complete ceasefire; a withdrawal of Israeli forces from all populated areas of Gaza; a release of a number of hostages — including women, the elderly, the wounded — in exchange for the release of hundreds of Palestinian prisoners.  There are American hostages who would be released at this stage, and we want them home.

Additional, some remains of hostages who have been killed would be returned to their families, bringing some degree of closure to their terrible grief.

Palestinians — civilians — would return to their homes and neighborhoods in all areas of Gaza, including in the north. Humanitarian assistance would surge with 600 trucks carrying aid into Gaza every single day. With a ceasefire, that aid could be safely and effectively distributed to all who need it.  Hundreds of thousands of temporary shelters, including housing units, would be delivered by the international community.

All of that and more would begin immediately — immediately.

During the six weeks of ph- — of phase one, Israel and Hamas would negotiate the necessary arrangements to get to phase two, which is a permanent end to hostol- — to hostilities.

Now, I’ll be straight with you.  There are a number of details to negotiate to move from phase one to phase two.  Israel will want to make sure its interests are protected.

But the proposal says if the negotiations take longer than six weeks for phase one, the ceasefire will still continue as long as negotiations continue.

And the United States, Egypt, and Qatar would work to ensure negotiations keep going — all agreements — all agreements — until all the agreements are reached and phase two is able to begin.  

Then phase two: There would be an exchange for the release of all remaining living hostages, including male soldiers; Israeli forces would withdraw from Gaza; and as long as Hamas lives up to its commitments, a temporary ceasefire would become, in the words of the propo- — the Israeli proposal, “the cessation of hostilities permanently,” end of quote.  “Cessation of hostilities permanently.”

Finally, in phase three, a major reconstruction plan for Ga- — for Gaza wou- — would commence.  And any final remains of hostages who have been killed would be returned to their families. 

That’s the offer that’s now on the table…

Let me get this straight. Israel has to come to a complete ceasefire and withdrawal of Israeli forces from all populated areas. Hamas is going to release a few hostages—in exchange, by the way, for hundreds of terrorist prisoners, all with blood on their hands. Then, the Gazans can return to their homes in all areas, and Israel is supposed to sit down with Hamas and negotiate on how to get to “phase two.”

You have got to be kidding me! Negotiate with terrorists whose charter is to destroy you. Has Biden gone mad? Apparently so.

Instead of pressuring Hamas to release the hostages and surrender to end this war, it’s all on Israel to surrender, which gives Hamas the victory. All I can say is, woe unto America! That is not going to bring blessing to your country. I can guarantee you that.

Israel has a better way: Finish off Hamas and rescue the hostages.

That’s just what they continued to do this past weekend, rescuing four hostages who were being held in two separate buildings in a densely populated civilian area in central Gaza. This was a highly coordinated rescue effort, and it was nothing short of miraculous, involving much intelligence, weeks of training with a precise plan, and many special Israeli Force teams.

Hamas claimed that, in the process, Israel killed at least 274 Palestinians. Of course, CNN jumped all over Hamas’ propaganda. Instead of praising Israel’s heroic rescue efforts, its report stated, “At least 210 people killed and hundreds injured in Israeli raid to rescue four hostages in central Gaza.”

That statement makes it sound as though it really wasn’t worth it, “Well, for four hostages, you’ve killed 210 people, Israel.” What is CNN doing? That’s not what should have been communicated. It should have been a praise of God for what Israel has accomplished. The question should have been: Why in the world were the hostages being held in the civilian area in the first place? CNN didn’t ask that important question.

It further confirms what Israel already knew, that many ordinary Gazan civilians were and are in on this whole terrorist operation.

To make matters worse, the US has been working to try to dismantle Israel’s fragile emergency government in the middle of this war. The US held private meetings with Benny Gantz—Israel’s opposition leader—who quit the war cabinet last Saturday. There is little doubt that the US played a role in that departure. Sadly, it’s about the upcoming US election in November. It’s all about votes and staying in power.

What can we take away from all of this?

Ultimately, God is still on the throne and has His eyes on the whole situation. Don’t kid yourself. Understand that. Take comfort in that. He’s got his eyes on the developments in Israel and around the world.

None of this should surprise students of God’s word. We know that one day, the whole world is going to turn on Israel with only God defending her. Yes, that’s what the Bible says is coming, as we read in Zechariah chapter 14.

If the things we are seeing happening in our world today are setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled, then we shouldn’t be saying ridiculous things like “All eyes on Rafah.” Rather, we should be dead serious in saying, “All eyes on God’s word.”

If The Lord Is A Zionist, Believers In God’s Word Ought To Be Also

As long as the sun, moon, and stars are shining in the sky, Israel will not cease from being a nation before Him forever. Again, I ask, what side of history do you want to be on? I trust you want to be on the side of history that lines up with God’s passions and God’s love. He has an everlasting love for Israel and the Jewish people.
