Will the US Become the Largest State Sponsor of Terrorism?

Dear Editor:

Recent news reports suggest that the Biden/Obama administration’s negotiators have made progress in their relentless and loathsome efforts to appease Iran. No definitive details are available yet, but potential problems and issues have surfaced.

Reportedly, Iran would agree to limit its uranium enrichment to the 60% level, just below where it is today, and inspectors will be allowed to verify the enrichment levels (but only at already disclosed sites). American hostages held by Iran will be released, and the US will continue to relax the oil sanctions. The Biden administration has already allowed Iran to increase production from 0.5 million barrels per day to 1.5 million. If the US allows further increases to 2.5 million barrels daily, Iran’s total windfall will approximate $50 billion. And the US will not impose restrictions on missile production or weapons sales. The US would also give unspecified billions of dollars in “aid” to Iran. There would probably be a Biden administration assurance that Israel will not attack Iran.

Since the administration knows it couldn’t obtain the Senate’s approval, this arrangement is not an official agreement or a treaty. It’s merely a deplorable “understanding”, which would, once again, make the United States the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism, as it did during the Obama administration.

The Biden Administration already gifted the Islamist terrorist Taliban regime in Afghanistan with more than $80 billion worth of weapons and military equipment. It also funds the terrorism-sponsoring Palestinian Authority, which pays terrorists to murder Israelis.

By keeping the Southern border open, the Biden administration is enriching the Mexican cartels and supporting the fentanyl warfare against the US that poisons about one hundred thousand Americans each year. It also facilitates millions of illegal migrants, including many criminals, mentally ill, and terrorists, to flood the country, thus increasing crime, homelessness, and chaos.

It is baffling why the Biden administration is not only unwilling to pose severe restrictions on the global terrorist-sponsoring regime in Tehran, and is also ready to fund Iran’s nuclear weapons program and terrorist activities. In effect, the United States is destabilizing the Middle East and undermining its own status as the once sovereign, most powerful nation on earth. To us, this strategy makes no sense!

KGB Helped to Form Palestinian Group

Dear Editor:

We need to understand what Palestine is and who the Palestinians are.

They are a relatively recent Russian and Egyptian innovation and were nonexistent in 1947 during the Nakba — the mass displacement and dispossession of Palestinians during the 1948 Arab-Israeli war.

In 1952 Gamel Abdel Nasser overthrew King Faruq and became president of Egypt. The United States and the United Kingdom offered to help fund the Aswan Dam project, but pulled out in 1956 when Nasser nationalized the Suez Canal. The Soviet Union stepped in.

To diminish American influence in the Middle East, the Soviet KGB helped to create the Palestine Liberation Organization in 1964. It simply called Israel “Palestine” and all the Arabs living there “Palestinians.” The West Bank and Gaza were not considered part of Palestine as they were under Arab occupation.

Arabs lived in the British Mandate for Palestine. Their numbers doubled due to employment opportunities the Zionists created and at the urging of their leader, Haj Amin al-Husseini, grand mufti of Jerusalem. Husseini was Adolf Hitler’s ally.

During the Mandate, Jews were called Palestinians. All their institutions reflected this. Arabs identified as members of their families or clans or from where they had immigrated.

Biden’s Unbridled Hubris

Dear Editor:

“Joe Biden intends to invite Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for a visit to Washington but his conditions for the visit have not changed…unfazed by Netanyahu’s watered down outline for the judicial reform…”  Where did Biden acquire this unbridled hubris?

Biden is putting conditions on the Prime Minister of Israel, when he should be putting conditions on his own “watered down” Israel bashing here: https://zoa.org/biden-appointments-watch/

“The White House’s newest hire (Ramzi Kassem) is a CUNY professor who has accused Israel of “ethnic cleansing” and “systematic genocide”…

Is Biden putting conditions on or calling upon these so-called “Palestinian” Arabs, to stop their daily Nazi speech? Or putting conditions on UNRWA funds unless they clean out the Jew hate in their text books? Or conditioning the billions given to them unless they stop rejecting peace offers, negotiate in fairness, and stop the child abuse by sending their children to summer training camps to learn how to kill Jews as an act of holy martyrdom? No. But he is treating Netanyahu like a second class citizen and preaching to Israel, with holier-than-thou conditions he fails to come even close to.


PMW director Itamar Marcus said one of the fundamentals of Palestinian anti-Semitism is the assertion that the Jews are not only hated by Palestinians but by “all of humanity, and for good reason. They refer to ‘The Protocols of the Elders of Zion’ as an accurate, authentic document.”…Abbas’s adviser on religious and Islamic affairs, the P.A. ‘s top Islamic legal authority, Mahmoud al-Habbas, claimed: “Jews are humanoids. They are creatures that Allah created in the form of humans. They are cursed descendants of apes and pigs.”

Marcus asked, “Could you imagine what would be the reaction if the chief rabbi of Israel had gone on TV and told Israelis that the Palestinians are not human? All of the media all over the world would have gone crazy.”

I keep waiting for our Stockholm Syndrome, failed American Jewish “Leaders” to demand Biden place conditions on these Arabs and demand Biden call upon these Arabs to stop their Jew hate. I am still waiting.

And so let us not forget these words, as a timely reminder, for all who threaten Israel:

“On June 22 1982, Joe Biden was a Senator from Delaware and confronted then Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin during his Senate Foreign Relations committee testimony, threatening to cut off aid to Israel. Begin responded, “Don’t threaten us with cutting off your aid. It will not work. I am not a Jew with trembling knees. I am a proud Jew with 3,700 years of civilized history. Nobody came to our aid when we were dying in the gas chambers and ovens. Nobody came to our aid when we were striving to create our country. We paid for it. We fought for it. We died for it. We will stand by our principles. We will defend them. And, when necessary, we will die for them again, with or without your aid.”
