Amid Backlash, Biden To Send $1 Billion Military Aid to Israel

Pandering Joe Biden is on the loose again as he now plans to send $1 billion worth of military aid for Israel to proceed with the shipment.

Last week Biden threatened Israel, one of the US’ closest allies, of suspending weapons support if they proceed to strike Hamas’ final bastion, Rafah.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the aid consists of $700 million in tank ammunition, $500 million in tactical vehicles, and $60 million in mortar rounds.

The sale of these ammunition and tactical vehicles comes as Biden halted the shipment of bombs to Israel.

This move led to a series of backlash from Republican lawmakers and pro-Israel Democrats in Congress, to save Biden, the White House quickly clarified that they would instead send other forms of lethal aid.

Congressional aides, who refused to be named, remarked that this shipment was not part of the foreign aid package that Congress approved. 

While all these were being arranged, the Biden administration last Friday accused Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of violating international laws in their decision to pursue Hamas.

“…[it was] reasonable to assess],” according to the White House, that Israel has committed international crimes using US-supplied weapons in its offensives in Gaza, but noted that information regarding these was still insufficient. 

In addition to this, Biden committed another blunder after his government was also exposed recently for attempting to bribe the Israeli government to stop their Rafah invasion in exchange for information on Hamas terrorists.

Fox’s host Maria Bartiromo shared this with Senator Mike Lee, as he railed how outrageous the story was.

“… the Washington Post is writing that the United States will share information about where the terrorists are with Israel if they don’t go into Rafah. Are you kidding me? In other words, the US knows where the terrorists are. They’re not going to share the information with Israel unless Israel goes into Rafah. This story is outrageous in the Washington Post,” blasted Bartiromo. 

Last week, Biden threatened Netanyahu in a CNN interview: “I made it clear that if they go into Rafah, they haven’t gone into Rafah yet, if they go into Rafah, I’m not supplying the weapons that have been used historically to deal with Rafah, to deal with the cities, to deal with that problem.”

Unfazed by Biden’s statements, Bibi Netanyahu remarked, while not dropping any names, “If we have to stand alone, we will stand alone. I have said that if necessary, we will fight with our fingernails.
