Joe Biden undermines Israel’s sovereignty

During his visit to the Jewish State, Joe Biden also visited a hospital in the eastern part of Jerusalem city. As the hospital is controlled by “Palestinians”, Biden had asked his handlers to remove Israeli flag from his limousine while he had refused to allow any Israeli officials to accompany him. Meaning, Joe Biden wanted to show his “Palestinian” jihadist darlings that he was not at all a friend of Israel and had even gone further by removing Israeli flag from the limousine proving, he actually is a Jihadist Joe.

That rejection was seen by many in Israel as signaling that he does not recognize Israeli sovereignty in that part of the city. However, when asked at a press conference on Thursday whether that is how the situation should be understood, he said no.

Team Biden’s rejection of Israeli accompaniment during the visit was seen by many in Israel as signaling that the Biden administration does not recognize Israeli sovereignty in eastern Jerusalem.

“Today’s pictures of his limousine on its way to east Jerusalem, without the Israeli flag that has been flying at its helm until now, highlights the message he is trying to send; that the sovereignty of Jerusalem, Israel’s eternal capital, is on the table for negotiation”, World Likud Chairman Danny Danon said.

“This move only spreads false hopes and sows discord instead of peace. Just as no leader would request that Washington or any world capital be divided, so too Jerusalem, the capital of the Jewish people, will forever remain united,” Danon added.

President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in 2018, without delineating municipal borders. Biden claimed he would maintain that recognition.

The Biden administration has also sought to reopen the US consulate to the Palestinians, which was located in western Jerusalem and was turned into a unit of the US Embassy to Israel after the Trump administration recognized the capital. Israel has refused to authorize the Biden move.

“Biden’s visit to east Jerusalem without official Israeli accompaniment is a destructive move towards Israel, even if it was done with smiles and handshakes”, said Religious Zionist Party Knesset member Orit Struck.

“Biden knows very well that that would never be allowed in Washington by a foreign leader and understands how much that hurts Israel’s national pride, doing it in Jerusalem”.

During the visit to the hospital, Biden announced US$100 million in US aid to the Palestinian medical network.

From the start it was clear that President Biden, the first sitting US precedent to visit symbolic Palestinian Authority institutions in east Jerusalem, was signaling that Israel’s sovereignty in Jerusalem was in question, said World Likud Chairman Danny Danon in a statement on Friday. “Today’s pictures of his limousine on its way to east Jerusalem, without the Israeli flag that has been flying at its helm until now, highlights the message he is trying to send; that the sovereignty of Jerusalem, Israel’s eternal capital, is on the table for negotiation.

The Biden administration has also sought to reopen the US consulate to the Palestinians, which was located in western Jerusalem and was turned into a unit of the US Embassy to Israel after the Trump administration recognized the capital. However, Israel has refused to authorize the move.
