On Thursday, President Biden said he believes the “vast majority” of Americans are committed to Israel’s security. The president made the comments from Jerusalem after holding a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid.
“I think the vast majority of the American public, not just my administration — is completely devoted to Israel’s security without any ifs, ands, or buts — without any doubts about it,” Biden told reporters.
Biden made the comments a day after an interview aired on Israeli TV where he said progressives Democrats that have denounced Israel as an apartheid state were “wrong.”
“There are few of them. I think they’re wrong. I think they’re making a mistake,” he said. The president added that he makes “no apologies” for his support of Israel.
While the vast majority of Congress supports Israel, it is significant that there are lawmakers willing to criticize the relationship now, whereas, for decades, there was virtually no dissent on the issue. Polling also shows that there has been an increase in sympathy for Palestinians in the US, mostly among youth, although most Americans polled are still pro-Israel.
Also on Thursday, Biden received a medal from Israeli President Isaac Herzog and delivered a speech where he heaped praise on the state of Israel. “Seeing Israel thrive, seeing the wildest dreams of Israel’s founding fathers and mothers grow into a reality that Israel’s children enjoy today, to me is close to miraculous,” he said.
From his early days as a senator until now, Biden has always been a staunch supporter of Israel. “I’ve known many of you for a long time. And all of you, you know that my love for Israel is deep-rooted,” he said at the medal ceremony.

His “love for Israel is deep rooted” indeed. So much so that the extinguishing of the hopes and dreams of Palestinians is guaranteed.
Biden should have worn blackface. And done a little dance. That would have been funny.
“I’ve known many of you for a long time. And all of you, you know that my love for Israel is deep-rooted,”
Along with his hatred for the historical American nation.
“Biden Says ‘Vast Majority’ of Media-Brainwashed American People Devoted to Israel’s Security”…!
The American government is comitted to the security of Israel due to so many politicians being either dependent on money from the Israel lobby to finance their campaigns or fearful of being blacklisted by the lobby.
Most Americans are fed up with Israel and its shennanigans.
“Most Americans” want to be able to pay their bills and live healthy safe lives, and don’t give squat for politics.
By refererdum, ask Americans if they would prefer to use the $$$ we send to Israel on American rebuilding of infrastructure. Same goes for the billions for Ukraine. As usual, Biden doesn’t have a clue with that statement of his
The only “love for Israhell “ that exists in this country is that of a few right wing Christian nut jobs and congressional whores on their hands and knees begging for AIPAC dollars like a dog begging for a bone.
Ask Joe Blow on the street if he’d rather his share of $4 billion in taxpayer dollars (a) goes to a foreign apartheid government, or (b) to improve infrastructure, provide relief for seniors and families struggling to feed their children, and improving our schools. He’d probably cold-cock you for asking such a stupid question.
I don’t know that I’ve ever seen an Amerikkkan president bow and scrape to IsraHell that the extent this one has. It’s actually nauseating. I feel some projectile vomit in ByeDone’s direction comin’ on.
a.i.p.a.c. is the cancer in the U.S. government.
Is it just me or does Biden sound a bit kinky?…And cliche…
Why are such pronouncements necessary? Standard protocol?
Biden would have been less cliche had he mentioned his desire is for peace in the region for everyone involved (beyond that, peace for the entire world)…
