Commentary: Joe Biden Day Trades on Israel’s Future, Endangers World

By Dr. Tom Borelli

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

Commentary by Dr. Tom Borelli originally published by Newsmax Insider

The attacks by Hamas and Iran against Israel exposed President Biden’s failed foreign policy.

If it can even be described as “policy,” it certainly lacks coherence.

Biden reacts to events in the Mideast much like a market-maker in the equities markets, meaning he’s trading both sides of a security.

The problem is Biden is measuring his profits and losses in terms of politics and his reelection prospects, not the security of the U.S. or anywhere globally.

Not to mention the seriousness of Biden’s “trading” where losses can be measured in lives, not dollars and cents.

Exhibit “A” in this regard is best expressed in terms of how he has handled (or not) Israel and Iran.

One day Biden is backing Israel.

On another day he’s criticizing the U.S.’s closest ally.

One day Biden gives Iran, a state sponsor of terror, sanction wavers allowing it to fund evil. On yet another day he warns the country to stop its aggression.

Biden can’t have it both ways.

Let’s dig deeper:

When Hamas invaded Israel on Oct. 7, 2023 killing thousands in unspeakable barbaric ways, Biden rightly condemned the terrorists.

Biden branded the attack “appalling” and “unconscionable.”

The president added, “In this moment of tragedy, I want to say to [Hamas] and to the world and to terrorists everywhere that the United States stands with Israel. We will not ever fail to have their back.”

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken also weighed in with strong words saying, “We stand in solidarity with the government and people of Israel.”

Fast forward to April 2024, Biden’s support of Israel has changed.

The president directly criticized Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu regarding his wartime efforts describing them as a “mistake,” and went on to urge Netanyahu to declare a ceasefire.

Biden went further during a phone call with Netanyahu and warned the prime minister that U.S. support of Israel in the war with Hamas is conditional and depends on steps taken to reduce deaths of civilians in Gaza.

Biden’s Israel day trading has emboldened Iran.

In retaliation to an Israeli bomb strike that killed a senior military official and others in Lebanon, Iran launched an unprecedented attack featuring drones and missiles, against Israel.

Israeli targeting of Iranian military personnel was rooted in Iran’s financial support and training of Hamas terrorists.

Prior the attack against Israel, Iran put the U.S. on notice warning it not to get involved in the pending conflict. Shockingly, the U.S. bowed to Iran emphasizing it was not involved in the Israeli strike against its military personnel.

Following the attack, Biden once again backed away from Israel.

ABC News reported that the U.S. will not participate in any possible retaliatory attack against Iran.

Political considerations are driving Biden’s day trading on Israel, and Israel’s future.

Following the Hamas invasion, pro-Palestine activists have waged an ongoing and widespread protest war against Biden over his purported support for Israel.

In the U.S., activists have stopped traffic on bridges and numerous highways to airports.

Activists have called the president, “Genocide Joe, including at an Atlanta campaign event.

Name calling and protests are one thing, but what matters most to Biden are votes, and the pro-Palestinian activists are hurting the president where it hurts the most.

Recent Democratic presidential primaries including Michigan where over 100,000 voted “Uncommitted,” represented 13% of the vote.

Similarly, in North Carolina 88,000 voted for “No Preference,” representing 13% of the vote. Minnesota had the largest percentage of “Uncommitted” voters that reached 19%.

The significant number of uncommitted votes is attributed to Arab American voter frustration with Biden’s support of Israel in its war with Hamas.

Michigan is of particular concern for Biden. The state has 200,000 Arab American voters and Biden won the state by around 155,000 votes.

In 2020, Biden beat Trump in Dearborn, Michigan by 69% to 30%, where the city has a significant number of Arab American voters.

Biden’s biggest mistake was issuing sanction waivers putting billions in Iran’s hands.

Additionally, Biden’s sanction relief on oil exports resulted in Iran’s energy revenue soaring to $42 billion in 2023 from $7.9 billion in 2020, when Trump was enforcing sanctions.

Our nation’s 46th president’s trading both sides in the conflict between Israel and Iran is backfiring on him politically.

It means, globally, we are on the verge of cataclysmic conflict.
