“Throwing Israel Under the Bus”

Three days ago on March 25th the United Nations Security Resolution 2728 was adopted. The resolution demanded an immediate ceasefire of the Israel’s war with Hamas during the month of Ramadan leading to a pasting sustainable ceasefire. It also demanded the unconditional release of all hostages.

The resolution received approval from 14 members, while the United States abstained from voting. According to a prominent writer in an online Jewish publication he wrote; “Henry Kissinger once said, “It may be dangerous to be America’s enemy, but to be America’s friend is fatal.” To confirm Kissinger’s assertion, look no further than the Biden administration’s failure to veto the U.N. Security Council’s most recent resolution on Gaza.

Without requiring the release of any of the hostages—at least five of whom are Americans—or condemning Hamas, the UNSC passed a resolution demanding an immediate ceasefire in Gaza. America abstained. There is no way to describe Biden’s actions except as a complete betrayal of Israel and the Jewish people as a whole. Biden did it for the most craven possible reason: He wants to win the votes of Jew-haters.”

Now Islam is the third largest religion in the United States behind Christianity and Judaism. In 2020, the U.S. Religion Census found there to be 4.45 million Muslim Americans, or roughly 1.3% of the population. With the elections coming up in November it seems clear that Biden wants the Muslim vote to count for him to stay in power.

Already his incompetency as a President is well established and he and his administration are the laughing stock of the world’s political leaders and especially in China, Russia and North Korea.  Prime Minister Netanyahu is very clear that despite the UN resolution and Biden’s pressure for a ceasefire the IDF must start the offensive in Rafah to finish Hamas once and for all.

There are four Hamas battalions remaining in Rafah and Israel is determined to wipe them out by destroying the Hamas infrastructure and to see the hostages released.

In his online article the writer also stated; “Netanyahu may be very unpopular among significant portions of the Israeli electorate but his position on the war with Hamas is overwhelmingly supported by Israelis across the political spectrum. Israel has no choice but to destroy Hamas. Any continuing Hamas presence in Gaza poses an existential threat to Israel.

Either Hamas is destroyed or Israel will be destroyed. Periodic mass attacks against Israel like the one on Oct. 7—which Hamas has promised to repeat as many times as it can—could result in the rapid depopulation of the Jewish state and, before long, its demise.”

Hamas sees the UN resolution and the so called ceasefire over Ramadan and the ceasefire possibly to be extended, as favourable to Hamas who will not negotiate regarding the hostages now as they consider the proposal of the UN resolution to actually be in the favour of these Hamas terrorists continuing their fight against Israel.

The writer in the online Jewish publication further writes; “The latest UNSC resolution guarantees that Israel’s task will be a harder one. Hamas believes that the world, including the U.S., will save it from Israel. Thus, Hamas will be more intransigent in hostage negotiations. Any chance that Hamas or some of its key leaders might surrender no longer exists. More Israeli soldiers will die as a result.”

If Israel decides not to go into Rafah then the Israelis would lose the war, however Prime Minister Netanyahu is adamant that the IDF will start an offensive into Rafah regardless of who opposes it, even if it means that Biden will no longer sanction weapons being supplied to Israel.

Already Biden looks weak in the eyes of the world’s leaders especially Xi Jinping in China, Putin in Russia and Kim in North Korea. By not supporting Israel in its incursion into Rafah Biden will look more incompetent in the eyes of the immerging super power China. If Biden does nothing, he will look weaker still.

Regardless of what he does, the relationship between Israel and America will be strained if not irretrievably broken. Needless to say, Israel will be wrongly blamed for all of this. In fact all the nations are turning against Israel which God’s Word tells us will happen just before the return of the Messiah our Lord Jesus.

The author of the article also writes; “The West’s indifference to Jewish suffering during the Holocaust is not lost on Israelis. That is a fact of life the Biden administration does not seem to grasp. Given a choice between losing the war with Biden’s support and well wishes or winning the war and alienating Biden, Israel will—and must—choose victory. But the Biden disaster does not end there. His betrayal of Israel has permanently weakened the U.S.

 After the catastrophic surrender in Afghanistan, America’s allies and enemies alike became concerned that the nation is unreliable and weak. Now they are convinced. If the U.S. will not stand with one of its closest allies in the world against a sworn enemy of America that is funded, trained and armed by Iran, why would any country believe America will stand with them? That lesson is not lost on the Gulf Arab states. Ironically, unlike Biden, they are rooting for Israel against their common enemy Hamas.

Because of U.S. perfidy, however, the Arab states have already begun to turn to China and away from the U.S. Biden’s sell out of Israel will only accelerate that geopolitical shift. It will also have serious repercussions in Ukraine and Taiwan. America’s failure to veto the UNSC resolution will embolden Russia and China as they seek to replace the American-led world order with a new world order led by tyrants knowing that the U.S. will ultimately surrender when pressed, and hand over a huge strategic advantage to these tyrants Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping. In short, Biden’s move was not just a sell-out of Israel. It was a sell-out of Western civilization.”

The prophet Joel tells us that when it is time for God to restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem that because of the way the nations have carved up the Land of Israel and treated His people as prostitutes to be sold and used and abused by the nations, that He will draw them down into the valley of His judgement to judge them on every side.

He will call for the great sickle because the harvest is ripe for judgement. It will sweep down and sweep them all into the winepress of God’s wrath to be trampled down to the point where their blood will overflow His vat of Judgement and wrath.

The whole earth will be shaken, the constellations in the heavens will be affected because the LORD, the Lion from the Tribe of Judah, will roar from Zion, and thunder from Jerusalem; the earth and the sky will tremble. But the LORD will be a refuge for His people, a stronghold for the people of Israel (Joel 3:1-3, 12-16). As for the United States under the Biden Administration, supposedly Israel’s allies, by not vetoing the UN Resolution 2728 they are in effect “throwing Israel under the bus!”
