Biden Backs Israel?

Did I wake up today in an alternate reality this morning?

Despite proof that the Gaza 'aide' flotilla was little more than a flimsy cover for smuggling weapons to Jew-hating and murderous terrorists, leftists are inanely whining about those poor, poor souls on the gun boat.

Well, at least some leftists are. Amazingly, we have common sense coming from Joe Biden.

From this source:


And so I mean again, look, you can argue whether Israel should have dropped people onto that ship or not ... but the truth of the matter is, Israel has a right to know — they're at war with Hamas — has a right to know whether or not arms are being smuggled in. And up to now, Charlie, what's happened? They've said, "Here you go. You're in the Mediterranean. This ship — if you divert slightly north you can unload it and we'll get the stuff into Gaza." So what's the big deal here? What's the big deal of insisting it go straight to Gaza? Well, it's legitimate for Israel to say, "I don't know what's on that ship. These guys are dropping eight — 3,000 rockets on my people." Now, the one thing we have to do is not forget the plight of these Palestinians there, not Hamas, the — they're in bad shape. So we have put as much pressure and as much cajoling on Israel as we can to allow them to get building materials in, glass ...


I'll bet this is one of those times that Biden says something and then Obama calls him to tell him to shut the hell up. Pro-Israeli talk coming out of the White House? That's got to burn Barry's biscuits.

It sure seems that way. I can't even read news anymore without swearing.

He started out all right, anyway.

Don't worry, Hussein was critical of Israel today so the balance of the universe has been restored.

... rocket and bomb building materials like plumbing pipes and ductwork tubing, light switch toggles for detenator circuits, nails and ball bearings for anti-personnel fragmentation warheads, things like that.

If the Egyptian ex-patriates that call themselves Palestinians don't want this level of dual-use contraband control on their blockaded imports, they shouldn't have escalated the conflict with Israel to the point where maternity wards can be considered munitions plants where suicide bomber guidance systems are brought online.

Biden must have forgotten to take his dumb ass pill that morning.

Chuck: Heh.

Beamish: Exactly. I wouldn't trust those pigs with a toilet paper roll, not that they've probably ever seen one.

Krystal: I think he takes a cocktail of them.

The Gaffe machine strikes again. I'm sure he was upbraided for it.
