    Biden’s trip to Israel is getting trickier by the day

    Biden’s trip to Israel is getting trickier by the day

    In my latest piece for Responsible Statecraft, I check in on Joe Biden’s planned trip to Israel next month and how Israel’s behavior in recent days–including murdering Shireen Abu Akleh, desecrating her funeral, storming a hospital in East Jerusalem, and announcing the biggest addition to West Bank settlements since Biden took office–are making it more and more difficult for Biden to continue his…

    Trimisul SUA în Israel, Tom Nides, a declarat că nu a vizitat niciodată o așezare evreiască din Iehuda și Shomron (Cisiordania) și nu intenționează să facă acest lucru, pentru a evita să stârnească tensiuni, relatează Ynet. Intervievat de Ynet, el a fost întrebat dacă intenționează să viziteze așezările evreiești din Cisiordania, la care a răspuns “absolut nu”. “La fel cum le cer palestinienilor…

    Blutige Anschlagwelle in Israel Zwei Tote bei Schießerei in Tel Aviv 07.04.2022, 21:44 Uhr Israel erlebt die schwerste Gewaltwelle seit 16 Jahren. Bei einem Anschlag in Tel Aviv sterben zwei Menschen, mehrere werden verletzt. Sicherheitskräfte liefern sich einen Schusswechsel mit einem Attentäter, heißt es. Unklar ist, ob für die Terrortat wieder der Islamische Staat verantwortlich ist. Bei einem Anschlag im Zentrum der israelischen Küstenmetropole Tel Aviv sind am Abend nach Angaben von Sanitätern mindestens zwei Menschen getötet worden. Acht weitere Menschen erlitten Schussverletzungen. Das Ichilov-Krankenhaus der israelischen Metropole meldete, es habe zehn bei dem Anschlag verletzte Menschen aufgenommen. Zwei der Menschen seien trotz aller ärztlichen Bemühungen gestorben, vier weitere schwebten demnach in Lebensgefahr und wurden notoperiert. Ein Attentäter habe auf Besucher einer Kneipe auf der belebten Dizengoff-Straße geschossen, teilte die Polizei mit. Sicherheitskräfte suchten nach dem Täter. Der Rettungsdienst Zaka berichtete, Sicherheitskräfte lieferten sich einen Schusswechsel mit dem Attentäter. Im Stadtzentrum waren immer wieder Sirenen zu hören, ein Polizeihubschrauber kreiste über der Umgebung. Hintergründe der Tat waren zunächst nicht bekannt. Zeugen sagten, sie hätten Schüsse gehört. Sie berichteten von chaotischen Szenen im Zentrum von Tel Aviv. "Es herrscht eine Stimmung wie im Krieg, überall Soldaten und Polizisten. Menschen weinen und laufen in alle Richtungen", berichtete Binyamin Blum, Mitarbeiter eines Restaurants in der Nähe des Anschlagsortes. Die Sicherheitskräfte forderten die Menschen auf, in ihren Wohnungen zu bleiben. Der "Vorfall" dauere noch an, teilte die Polizei mit. Die Verdächtigen würden noch gesucht. US-Botschafter Tom Nides schrieb bei Twitter, er sei "entsetzt, einen weiteren feigen Terroranschlag auf unschuldige Zivilisten zu sehen, diesmal in Tel Aviv". Er forderte: "Dies muss aufhören!" Ein führendes Mitglied der im Gazastreifen herrschenden islamistischen Palästinenserorganisation Hamas, Muschir al-Masri, begrüßte den Anschlag. Er beweise, "wie tief der Widerstand in das israelische Sicherheitssystem eindringen" könne. Ein Hamas-Sprecher sagte, es handele sich um die Fortsetzung der jüngsten Anschlagsserie. IS reklamiert Anschlag im Norden für sich In Israel und dem Westjordanland hatte es in den vergangenen Wochen eine Reihe von Anschlägen gegeben. In Bnei Brak bei Tel Aviv hatte ein palästinensischer Angreifer Ende März fünf Menschen getötet, darunter zwei ultraorthodoxe Juden, zwei seit längerem in Israel lebende Ukrainer und einen israelisch-arabischen Polizisten. Nur wenige Tage zuvor waren in der nordisraelischen Stadt Hadera zwei Polizisten getötet worden. Diesen Angriff reklamierte die Dschihadistenmiliz Islamischer Staat (IS) für sich. Wegen der Anschlagswelle hatte die israelische Polizei am Montag insgesamt 50 mutmaßliche IS-Unterstützer festgenommen. Der Inlandsgeheimdienst Schin Bet kümmere sich um die Verdächtigen, berichtete der öffentlich-rechtliche Rundfunk Kan. Der Zeitung "Haaretz" zufolge gehen die Sicherheitsbehörden davon aus, dass es rund 200 israelische Araber gibt, die sich mit dem IS identifizieren. Darunter seien 20, die im Namen der Terrororganisation Anschläge begehen könnten. Das Land befürchtet weitere Gewaltakte während des muslimischen Fastenmonats Ramadan, der am vergangenen Samstag begonnen hat. Die Anschläge markierten die blutigste Phase in Israel seit 16 Jahren. Etwa ein Fünftel der rund 9,4 Millionen Einwohner Israels sind Araber. Mehrere arabische Politiker haben die Anschläge verurteilt.

    Another Biden Blunder

    Another Biden Blunder

    by Jerold Auerbach

     March 21, 2022

    Thomas Nides, recently appointed as the United States’ ambassador to Israel, seems conspicuously unqualified for the position — unless misguided criticism of Israel is a Biden Administration requirement.

    Following several years in politics — as former Vice President Walter Mondale’s intern and assistant to House Majority Whip Tony Coelho and Speaker Tom Foley — Nides’ interest turned to finance. He worked at Morgan Stanley and Credit Suisse before President Barack Obama selected him as Deputy Secretary of State for Management and Resources.

    With no evident qualifications for the position of Ambassador — other than his self-described political identity on the “center-left” (although “center,” Nides has explained, was inserted “to make myself feel better”) — President Joe Biden appointed him Ambassador to Israel. His public statements since leave little doubt about his discomfort with the Jewish State.

    Soon after his arrival, Nides announced that he would not visit settlements lest it be offensive — to whom, he did not specify. “The idea of settlement growth,” he revealed, “infuriates me when they do things that just infuriate the situation both in east Jerusalem and the West Bank.”

    The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is again making it clear that its understanding of antisemitism stops at the moment...

    Overflowing with sound and fury, Nides insisted that “We can’t do stupid things that impede us for a two-state solution. We can’t have the Israelis doing settlement growth in east Jerusalem or the West Bank.” The idea that Jews living anywhere in Jerusalem are “settlers” is, of course, absurd. Nides appropriately acknowledged: “This is not like I thought this through,” adding that going to settlements is not “the right thing to do.” After all, why risk learning something about Jews living in the ancient homeland of the Jewish people?

    As if in self-exoneration, Nides proudly revealed that he had visited the Western Wall “30 times” since arriving in Israel. But he has refused to visit the underground tunnel that follows the Wall deep into the Muslim Quarter, providing indisputable evidence of the expansive span of the ancient Jewish Temple Mount. Why not visit? Because, he explained, he did not want to “aggravate” people – meaning Muslims, not Jews.

    Nides absurdly claims that his “north star” is strengthening Israel. “However to do that,” he imagines, “we must have a two-state solution.” Anything else “is not good for the Palestinians, it’s certainly not good for Israel, it’s not good for the Jews, it’s not good for anyone.” Especially for Nides.

    Nides ignores the reality that there already is a Palestinian State — in Palestine. Its name is Jordan. Following World War I, British Colonial Secretary Winston Churchill removed the territory east of the Jordan River, included in the British Mandate for “Palestine,” and gifted it to Hashemite leader Emir Abdullah. It eventually became the Kingdom of Jordan. Palestinians now comprise a majority of its population. Demographically and geographically, Jordan is “Palestine.” A second Palestinian state would be superfluous.

    Nides also suggests that Israel should share Jerusalem with Palestinians. He seems oblivious to the reality that there already is a flourishing Muslim Quarter in the Old City. Its centerpiece is the Temple Mount where the ancient Jewish Temples were located before the Muslim conquest in the 7th century. And the current Arab sector in East Jerusalem is inhabited by more than 300,000 Palestinians. If “share” has any meaning, it already exists.

    Any lingering doubt as to Nides’ political preferences was evident when he recently told an interviewer: “Your agenda is where my heart is.” He was referring to Peace Now, the far-left Israeli organization that favors a Palestinian state based on pre-1967 borders. That would reincarnate Jordan’s West Bank — originally known as Biblical Judea and Samaria — and divide Jerusalem into two capitals for two states.

    The comforting reassurance that can be drawn from Ambassador Nides’ absurd fantasies is that there is as much likelihood of their implementation as there is that Israel would embrace its own self-destruction. Even President Biden might realize that.

    Jerold S. Auerbach is the author of twelve books, including “Print to Fit: The New York Times, Zionism and Israel 1896-2016,” selected for Mosaic by Ruth Wisse and Martin Kramer as a Best Book for 2019

    Missouri Republican Blocks Nomination of Tom Nides as Biden’s Ambassador to Israel

    [News Story]

    2:38pm Senate Blocks Tom Nides Appointment as US Ambassador to Israel

    Sen. Josh Hawley (R- Missouri) on Tuesday blocked a move by Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) to confirm President Joe Biden’s nominee for Ambassador to Israel, Tom Nides, by unanimous consent. Nides was one of eight nominees blocked by Sen. Hawley, who did not explain the reason for his objections.

    Denying the president his ambassador to Israel may be a signal of Republican disapproval of the administration’s Israeli policy, including the plans to violate Israeli sovereignty in Jerusalem by opening a consulate there that would serve only residents of the Palestinian Authority; and the attacks of the Biden administration on Israeli plans for some 3,000 new homes in the settlements, only about a thousand of which are designated for the near future.

    The Republican’s block now forces Majority Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) to run the nomination through the Senate with debates and a voice vote, which would be an opportunity for pro-Israel Senators—perhaps not only Republicans—to express their objections to the administration’s generally cool treatment of Israel.

    “YES, ADAM SHIFF'S SISTER IS MARRIED TO ONE OF GEORGE SOROS’ SONS.

    * YES, ABC PRESIDENT BEN SHERWOOD IS THE BROTHER OF ELIZABETH SHERWOOD, OBAMA'S FORMER SPECIAL ADVISER.

    * YES, CNN VP VIRGINIA MOSELEY IS MARRIED TO TOM NIDES, FORMER HILLARY CLINTON'S DEPUTY SECRETARY.

    THIS IS WHAT YOU CALL A "STACKED DECK".

    IF YOU HAD A HUNCH THE NEWS MEDIA WAS SOMEWHAT RIGGED AND YOU COULDN'T PUT YOUR FINGER ON IT, THIS MIGHT HELP YOU SOLVE THE PUZZLE.

    Now you know why no one is investigated. 

    They all have their hands in the cookie jar! 

    You might remember James Comey who investigated the Clinton email scandal and the Clinton Foundation, and made the final decision to not recommend prosecution by the DOJ.

    It turns out that the Clinton Foundation was audited by the law firm DLA Piper. One of the executives there was in charge of the Clinton Foundation audit.

    Who was it? Peter Comey, James Comey’s brother.  

    Peter Comey held an executive position with the Washington law firm that did the audit of the Clinton foundation in 2015.   

    Peter Comey was officially DLA Piper “Senior Director of Real Estate Operations for the Americas,” in 2015 when the Clinton Foundation scandals first broke and Hillary was preparing her Presidential campaign.

    Not only was DLA Piper, the firm where Comey’s brother worked involved in the audit of the Clinton Foundation, but according to the foundation’s donor records, DLA Piper has given between $50 - 100k to the Foundation.  

    It gets even cozier. DLA Piper executive Douglas Emhoff is taking an extended leave of absence from the firm.

    Who is Douglas Emhoff? 

    He is the husband of KAMALA HARRIS! 

    Just a coincidence?   

    And it only gets worse.

    Dominion (voting machine provider) serves 40% of the US market. It is in 30 states - - The state of Texas rejected the machines.

    Admiral Peter Neffenger is on Biden's transition team.

     Neffenger was the President of the board of Smartmatic

    Smartmatic (another voting machine supplier) entered into an agreement with Dominion in 2009

    Smartmatic counted votes in Venezuea

    Smartmatic is connected to Philippine voter fraud

    Smartmatic is run by Lord Mark Malloch Brown...

     who works for George Soros (-he and Brown are life-long friends)

    Brown chairs the Boards of a number of non-profit boards including the Open Society Foundation,

    Brown chairs the Centre for Global Development.

    Open society is owned by George Soros

    Smartmatic partnered with DLA Piper Global

    Douglas C. Emhoff works at DLA Piper Global

    Douglass C. Emhoff is Kamala Harris's husband

    Guess who owns Dominion? Blum Capital Partners, L.P.

    Guess who is on the board for the company? Richard C.Blum

    Richard C. Blum is Dianne Feinstein's husband

    Nancy Pelosi's husband is also a major investor

    An aide to Nancy Pelosi, Nadeam Elshami, was hired by Dominion Voting Systems

    Dominion Voting Systems is listed on the Clinton Foundation website.- Dominion Voting is listed as a $25,000 -$50,000 donor to the Clinton Foundation in 2014 by The Washington Post

    Georgia Governor Kemp used Dominion Voting after Texas and Florida rejected them

    Dominion has a lobbyist named Jared Thomas- Jared Thomas was Governor Brian Kemp’s chief of staff and press secretary from 2012 to 2015

    You must remember the Feinstein-Kavanaugh-Soros connections to understand this next information- 

    Debra Katz (Christine Ford's lawyer) worked for George-Soros at the Open Society Foundation.

    Debra Katz (Christine Ford's lawyer) also worked at Project on Government Oversight (POGO).

    POGO is funded by Soros’s Open Society Foundation

    POGO is the co-signer of the letter Diane Feinstein presented against Kavanaugh's nomination

    Kamala Harris did not prosecute OneWest Bank for their fraud when she had the authority 

    Soros owned OneWest Bank.

    Now you know why a woman who placed 7th in her State when running for President is now VP.

    President Joe Biden on Tuesday unveiled nine nominees for ambassadorships, including for Israel, NATO and Mexico. Among the names was hero pilot Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, whose quick thinking and deft skills saved lives when he landed a disabled plane in the Hudson River.
    The nominees consisted of five political appointees and four career government officials. Some had expected Biden to release the slate last month, but vetting and other issues delayed the announcement, which comes as Biden is in Europe meeting with allies and preparing to hold a summit with Russian leader Vladimir Putin.
    Tom Nides, a banking executive and former deputy secretary of State will be named for the spot in Jerusalem, while Julianne Smith, a longtime foreign policy adviser to Biden, is up for the NATO position in Brussels. Ken Salazar, a former U.S. interior secretary, is up for the Mexico City job.
    Sullenberger will be nominated as the U.S. representative to the Council of the International Civil Aviation Organization. His 2009 actions, called the “Miracle on the Hudson,” have led to movies and other fame.
    The fifth political appointee is Cynthia Ann Telles, a clinical professor in the UCLA Department of Psychiatry at the UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine. A fluent Spanish speaker, Telles is up for the ambassadorship to Costa Rica. Past media reports indicate she’s married to Joe Waz, a Comcast executive.
    While some of the political appointees, such as Nides and Telles, have raised campaign funds for Biden, the White House stressed that all were highly qualified for ambassadorships by virtue of their work resumes.
    The four career government officials being nominated are: Julie Chung, currently the acting assistant secretary of State for Western Hemisphere affairs, for the post in Sri Lanka; Sharon Cromer, a USAID official, for The Gambia; Troy Fitrell, currently the director of the State Department Office of West African Affairs, for Guinea; and Marc Ostfield, the State Department’s ombudsman, for Paraguay.
