During the entire first year of U. S. President Barack Insane Obama's administration, the president's staff seemed to be spending half of its time covering up for Vice-President Joe Biden's embarrassing, public statements, and trying to prevent them from occurring in the first place. After his recent blood libel accusations against Israel, there are only two reasons why no one is running to cover up for him now.
No one in the administration is embarrassed by his statements, and no one disagrees with them.
In fact, we have heard very similar comments from President Barack Insane Obama, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, as well as the apologetic validation of their statements from Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.
Here are some important comments from my friend Yekutiel Ben-Ya'akov regarding the illustrious U. S. Vice-President. If you would like to subscribe to his e-newsletter, you may send an e-mail to VOJ@israelnewszone.com or fill out the form on-line here.
Jews building in Jerusalem is a ‘slap in the face’, and prejudices final status talks?
The following excerpts from a story published, March 10th on the Associated Press wire say it all:
Biden's handshakes and embraces gave way to one of the strongest rebukes of Israel by a senior U.S. official in years after Israel's announcement during his visit that it plans to build 1,600 homes in “disputed east Jerusalem.” Israel apologized for the poor timing but is sticking to its plan to build the homes, enlarging one of the settlements that have impeded negotiations with Palestinians.
The vice president on Wednesday assured Palestinians the U.S. is squarely behind their bid for statehood and urged the sides to refrain from actions "that inflame tensions or prejudice the outcome of talks."
"It's incumbent on both parties to build an atmosphere of support for negotiations, and not to complicate them," Biden said, standing alongside Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
Israel's announcement was widely seen as a slap in the face to its all-important U.S. ally.
Voice of Judea Commentary:
“Slap in the face” when Jews build in Jerusalem? Hmm, would His Excellence, VP Biden call it a slap in the face for Americans to build in Washington? I think it would be a slap in the face if Israelis were to demand that Americans stop building in their capital. American bias and arrogance is a slap in the face of the Jewish nation and in the face of the G-d of Israel, who promised the land of Israel to the Jews. Biden was reported to have purchased a small gold cross as a souvenir during his trip to Bethlehem. Perhaps he would do better to read his Bible and learn about G-d’s gift of the Land of Israel as an exclusive inheritance to the Jews and about the great curse bestowed upon those who curse Israel.
Do we laugh or cry when the Goyim repeat the standard anti-Israel line that building Jewish homes is an act of war that will only prejudice the final outcome of the “peace” negotiations.
Let me get this straight - when Arabs build thousands of homes and launch rockets and bombs this does not upset or prejudice in any way the final outcome of “peace” talks? But when Jews build homes in their capital, in a neighborhood less than two minutes from the Jerusalem-Tel Aviv highway, it does? The only conclusion available from this nonsense is that the endgame is the expulsion of Jews from Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.
Ironically (or maybe not ironic at all), Ramat Shlomo, the “disputed” neighbourhood is even closer to Jerusalem center than Ramot, Gilo or Maaleh Adumim!
What Abbas and his American and European friends are really saying is: “No Jews or dogs allowed in Jerusalem.” We are flatly being told that we have no right to live in our capital. This is blatant Jew-hatred. Could one imagine rebuking Jews for living in a particular neighborhood on the east coast of America? Don’t laugh. Today, the Arabs and the world demand East Jerusalem ‘Judenrein’ – free of Jews – tomorrow Jews will be discriminated against elsewhere. G-d forbid, they will have nowhere to run should Israel cave in to the anti-Jewish dictates of her glorious ally.
There is a great lesson to be learned from the intensified American and Arab pressure being placed on Israel these days. It comes directly after Israel made far reaching unilateral, insane, self-destructive, even masochistic compromises to “freeze” all Jewish construction in Judea and Samaria. Israel volunteered to do this not as part of any “peace” commitments. The country alone initiated the freeze in the hope that it would help refuel and ignite “peace” talks.
Once again we learn that Jewish weakness and surrender of Jewish land achieves the opposite, it only increases expectations of further surrender and fuels the desire to terrorize Jews in Israel and worldwide.
Jerusalem will never again be re-divided. Jews have been a majority in Jerusalem since the 1840s. Jerusalem was never an Arab capital, even when it was occupied by the Jordanians from 1949-1967. The only claim Arabs have on Jerusalem is that Muhammad reputedly travelled to the "northernmost" mosque on a night journey that ostensibly occurred while he was asleep in Medina. On that basis alone, the Mosques were built on the ruins of the Temple mount. But the Arabs never used Jerusalem as a political center or the seat of any of the Muslim Caliphate.
During the restoration of the Jewish presence in the Land of Israel, the overwhelming impression of Western visitors in the nineteenth century was that there were few Arab inhabitants. The British Consul General, James Finn, wrote in 1857 that "the country is in a considerable degree empty of inhabitants." He added that the land's "greatest need is that of a body of population." Mark Twain visited Eretz Israel in 1867, traveled through the Jezreel Valley, and related, "there is not a solitary village throughout its whole extent." (The Innocents Abroad, New York: Oxford University Press, 1996, p. 349.) Arthur Penrhyn Stanley, the great British cartographer, reached similar conclusions in 1881: "In Judea it is hardly an exaggeration to say that for miles and miles there was no appearance of life or habitation.
Jews building in Jerusalem is a slap in the face, and prejudices final status talks?
Anyone who could say such a thing brings evidence that we’re getting closer to the days of Moshiach and redemption. As the Talmud states, in the days preceding the coming of Moshiach, chutzpah (extreme arrogance) will prevail.
Joe Biden Libels the Jews just Weeks before Passover
During his visit to Israel, U.S. Vice-President Joseph Biden said that Israel’s current policies jeopardize the lives of American soldiers serving in the Middle East. (Yediot Aharonot, March 11, 10).
Voice of Judea Commentary: Did we get that right? That was Joe Biden? Obama’s V.P.?
But isn’t that Osama bin Laden’s contention? Indeed, isn’t that the same message that Al Qaeda has been trumpeting since 9-11? See the linkage made by Bin Laden, blaming U.S. foreign policy in Israel for the fatal attacks. Who, in the end, does Joe Biden work for?
And isn’t that also standard anti-semitic tripe – the kind of garden variety Jew hatred that we’ve seen for centuries that blames Jews for the deaths of (your nation here) at the hands of far off Afghanis and Pakistanis and Iraqis?
Got to hand it to him. Mr. Biden’s blood libel comes just in time for the Jewish Passover, when Jew-hating Christians and Muslims have typically accused Jews of killing their children to make the Jewish spring festival’s matzah.
Will it be any surprise if the Jew-haters use Mr. Biden’s words to go on a Passover rampage in Baltimore or Toronto or Los Angeles on seder night or sooner?
