With US Mid-term elections over, Biden Administration is no longer in fear of angering the American voter. President Joe Biden’s administration has warned that it opposes annexation and the expansion of settlements and has backed the creation of a Palestinian state,.
The Biden administration has revealed the president’s long-seething hostility toward Israel going back to the now celebrated encounter between then-senator Joseph Biden and Israel’s then-prime minister, Menachem Begin, in which Biden threatened to cut off aid to Israel, and Begin uttered these famous words: “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.”
