Israel is running out of time before Biden damns it to defeat
By John Bolton

US secretary of state Antony Blinken’s trip this week to Israel, Jordan and other key players in the region vividly demonstrates the dangerous misconceptions underlying America’s Middle East policy. Blinken’s visit also shows how rapidly Joe Biden’s superficially strong support for Israel is eroding. The Israel Defense Forces are now racing against time before he wilts under domestic and international pressure, and the West’s collective enemies exploit his flawed world view.

Why, a month after one of this century’s worst acts of barbarism, are the perpetrators and their puppet-masters moving ever closer to skating free?

First, before and after the October 7 massacres, Iran, Hamas and others masterfully deployed their information-warfare campaigns, asymmetrically attacking Israel’s very legitimacy. Jerusalem was initially unprepared, slow in responding, and still faces inhibitions – such as a need to tell the truth – that Hamas and its allies don’t share. The anti-Israel campaign’s target is not “the Arab street”, but Western decision-makers. Indeed, across the Middle East, most cities are quiet, almost business-as-usual.

But in America and Britain, pro-Palestinian demonstrators jam the streets, denouncing alleged Israeli war crimes, and explaining away, or even justifying, Hamas’s invasion. The aim is to exploit Western weakness and lack of resolution. It seems to be working. In the UK, Labour is badly split, and in Washington, Biden faces intense pressure from the “progressive” Left. Keir Starmer sees his longed-for premiership dissolving before his eyes, and Biden worries his party’s extremists could cost him victory next November. They may both be correct.

Secondly, neither Washington nor London have articulated the larger strategic context of the Hamas attack, namely the fanatical religious and hegemonic aspirations of Tehran’s mullahs. Not doing so inevitably shields Iran and its proxies and impairs Israel’s inherent right to self-defence. Failing to see the real effective mastermind precludes addressing the full enormity of the risks Israel and its allies face – not just terrorist attacks, but straight up the escalation ladder to Iran’s nuclear weapons. Israelis get this, which is why former Mossad director Yossi Cohen urges hunting down every Iranian involved in the October 7 attacks.

Hamas did not wake up one fine day and decide by itself to attack Israel. Along with Hezbollah, Yemen’s Houthi rebels, Iraqi Shia militia, and many others, Hamas is a beneficiary of Iranian weapons, training, and finance. Its sneak attack has to be seen as part of Tehran’s larger strategy. Taken by surprise, Jerusalem is still struggling to grasp comprehensively Iran’s plan. Tehran’s surrogates are concealing their hand, but Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah’s recent speech shows their menace and resolve to break the will of Israel and its supporters by threatening wider regional war.

The Iran-Russia axis is also becoming clearer, with ominous reports that the Wagner Group will provide air defences to Hezbollah. Moscow has also criticised Israeli air strikes in Syria for violating international law, reversing long-standing acceptance of such operations. Russia and China, meanwhile, are supporting Hamas with propaganda and disinformation – a significant political signal.

Thirdly, through strategic failures of imagination and inadequate explanations of the full threats Israel faces from Iran, Britain and America risk losing the overall diplomatic battle. Blinken’s trip was to advocate for a “pause” in hostilities to allow more humanitarian aid to enter Gaza. Others are calling for a full “ceasefire”. There is no meaningful distinction between these verbal formulations. A former US Senate staffer revealed the game by writing that halting the hostilities “that begins as a temporary measure, but which could be extended, is vitally necessary”.

Moreover, while the fate of the hostages Hamas kidnapped is important, and rightly a priority for Israel and others, it is not this conflict’s true centrepiece. Governments have moral obligations to protect their citizens, and Hamas’s taking of hostages will inscribe the full picture of the group’s inhumanity into history.

Nonetheless, a government’s moral obligations extend to the whole nation, which Israel sees today as existentially threatened. Benjamin Netanyahu correctly emphasises that it is precisely military pressure that will produce more hostage releases, not gestures of goodwill, which Iran and its terrorist surrogates disdain. But if they persuade guileless Westerners that the stakes are only humanitarian issues in Gaza, they are more likely to prevail in arguing that Israel bears responsibility for the war continuing.

Netanyahu rejected Blinken’s démarche because Israel is literally in hand-to-hand combat against Hamas, but this is only the start of the propaganda campaign. When Biden calls for Israel to “pause” and sends Blinken to plead his case in Jerusalem, we should be alarmed. Israel has the resolve to continue, but its fate may lie in Washington and London. That is not good news.

This is a very good analysis that everyone needs to read regarding the Israel-Hamas war.

I think John Bolton makes a lot of good points in this article.

Praying for Israel. :pray
Bolton is spot on. In spite of Biden’s seeming support for Israel I get the impression that there are those in his administration who are not pro-Israel. What is worrisome is that there are several people from Obama’s administration who hold key positions in the Biden Administration and are more in tune with the Obama view of Netanyahu and Israel.

And with the Washing Post pulling of the now famous cartoon - hamas character with kids , burka girl strapped as body armor,

It may just be a matter of time before violence breaks out on the home front.

Remember S.O.P for muslims is (*Standard Operating Procedure)

freak out at perceived racist hatred of islam
claim contextual manipulation of quranic verses when quoted
threaten greater violence at such insults
blame Jews
promote their god of peace by killing infidels
enforce shira law wherever possible as covered under the First Amendment.


And why did the Marines go to Tripoli?

Chaos is exploding everywhere

Islam needs to foment chaos to usher in their Mahdi and the NWO believes chaos is needed to usher in a change of order…HELL bent on destroying Israel and bring the West into global compliance.

I gotta believe Israel is going to have to choose to ignore pressure from the west and unleash “scorched earth” on all fronts soon.

Imho Islam is going to be used as bad cop in the west to allow it to create a huge cry for big brother to step in.

Such an amazing transitioning time we are witnessing. It’s like the world is on fire and yet daily we are seeing accelerant is being added.

As usual with Biden his lying lips say "we support Israel," but his real motive is to find any excuse he can to find a way to cut off all support for Israel. They will manufacture some "reason" in due time.
He doesn’t do or say anything unless it’s politically expedient. Then the press secretary cleans up after him.
I don’t think America will have another republican president again. The white house has been corrupted since who knows when and the government has been sinking ever since. If this war is the beginning of a domino effect into Ezekiel 38, the west will continue turning against Israel and that includes america. Now is not a good time to have Biden as president, and yet the people got the leader they deserved. I don’t think these wars would be happening under Trump. So, Biden was appointed for such a time as this.

Truth!!

We know at some time in the future all nations will hate Israel (or not support them).
Maybe this is laying the groundwork?
Or maybe it's getting ready to happen now??
Seems everything is happening at warp speed!

Thomas Jefferson sent to Marines to Tripoli to put a halt to the Muslim pirates there who were attacking American ships. Jefferson had read the Koran and understood clearly what they were up to in their quest to please Allah. He wasn’t having any of it.

Israel wins this war with or without America's involvement. If God wants America to stay and provide assistance they will. Israel turns back to God in the future and how God brings this will be revealed in His timing.
Remember, Israel didn’t ask for American troops. What they asked for is ammunition, which they got by paid for it. It was this administration and its conniving ideology that put troops on Israeli soil, and so comes the string pulling by Obama through Bribem.

Thankfully, God is still on His throne!

I think Bibi and his government are going to be faced with a fork in the road very soon. They will either have to continue dealing with pressure from the Biden Administration to manage this war as the current leadership in Washington wishes, or face going on their own without financial or military assistance from the west to pursue destroying Hamas, Hezbollah, the other factions and potentially the current Iranian regime.

IMO, the Biden Administration is holding their financial and military assistance over Israel's head in exchange for obedience and cooperation to not upset Iran and the current status quo. Biden right now is more concerned with not upsetting muslim voters in the United States than he is with American service members safety/health in the middle east and the security of Israel.

It always boils down to politics with the political elite.

Instated this in a different thread (I think it was in a different one) and it’s only my opinion. NOT a prophecy or word from God.

The “allies” of the Israel will slowly continue to pressure them to ‘cease fire’. Israel will resist and say nope. Then the “allies” will turn against Israel making it the world vs Israel. It’ll seem desperate for Israel. Then God will happen.
