Biden told the group of rabbis that he’s had disagreements with President Barack Obama over some of the language that he uses regarding Israel, said Klein, a Democrat who represented Congressional District 22, which includes Palm Beach.
“I will defend, down to my last breath that this administration has one of the strongest relationships in history with the Israeli government and that includes the highest level of military cooperation, intelligence gathering and sharing,” Klein said.
Klein, of course, was defeated by Allen West in the 2010 elections.
The loss of Anthony Weiner’s seat has finally driven home the point that the Obama Administration cannot go on playing both sides of the street re Israel and expect the Jewish vote to be a given. So he sends Biden to South Florida to try to shore things up.
The general consensus in the upper reaches of our society (and this has been the case in Europe for much longer) is that Israel is an inconvenience that needs to be minimised (and disposed of, if necessary) in order to keep things on an “even keel.” The sooner the Jewish community figures out they’re in the cross hairs as much as their fellow children of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, the better.
This is the word of the Lord concerning Israel. The Lord, who stretches out the heavens, who lays the foundation of the earth, and who forms the spirit of man within him, declares: “I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that sends all the surrounding peoples reeling. Judah will be besieged as well as Jerusalem. On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves. On that day I will strike every horse with panic and its rider with madness,” declares the Lord. “I will keep a watchful eye over the house of Judah, but I will blind all the horses of the nations. “Then the leaders of Judah will say in their hearts, “The people of Judah will say in their hearts, ‘The people of Jerusalem are strong, because the Lord Almighty is their God. “on that day I will set out to destroy all the nations that attack Jerusalem.” ZECHARIAH 12:1-5, 9
