After a wave of violence that saw repeated murders of Israelis, with guns and axes, among other means, in attacks that involved ISIS, but were praised by Hamas and the PLO’s Palestinian Authority, Biden is rewarding the terrorists.
The Biden administration has settled on a series of steps aimed at boosting its diplomatic ties to the Palestinians in lieu of reopening the US Consulate in Jerusalem — a move it reluctantly shelved amid Israeli opposition.
The opposition consisted of telling Biden that if they gave in, the leftist-Islamist-RINO (right in name only) coalition government would collapse and they’d have to deal with Netanyahu again.
According to two US and Palestinian officials who spoke to The Times of Israel, US President Joe Biden will elevate Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Israeli and Palestinian Affairs Hady Amr to the role of special envoy to the Palestinians.
Front Page Magazine had the first deep background on Amr.
“I was inspired by the Palestinian intifada,” Hady Amr wrote a year after September 11, discussing his work as the national coordinator of the anti-Israel Middle East Justice Network.
Biden has now chosen Amr as a Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Israel-Palestine.
I have news for every Israeli, Amr ranted in one column written after Sheikh Salah Shahada, the head of Hamas’ Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, was taken out by an Israeli air strike.
Amr warned that Arabs now have televisions, and they will never, never forget what the Israeli people, the Israeli military and Israeli democracy have done to Palestinian children. And there will be thousands who will seek to avenge these brutal murders of innocents.
Hady Amr had accused Israel of “ethnic cleansing” and coordinated an organization that had accused Israel of “apartheid”
On top of that, Amr was essentially working for the Qatari terror state that backs Hamas and the rest of the Muslim Brotherhood. Since then there were numerous reports of his abusive behavior when meeting with Israelis and Jews.
So this appointment formalizes what everyone knew, Amr is there to advocate for the terrorists. At least Biden will stop pretending that Amr is there to handle relations between Israel and the terrorists.
He’s playing for one team only.
Amr will remain in Washington but will make regular trips to the region and work closely with the Palestinian Affairs Unit, which currently is a branch within the US Embassy to Israel and is housed in the old Jerusalem consulate building. But in a move aimed at again setting apart the diplomats serving the Palestinians from those serving the Israelis, the PAU will officially begin reporting directly to Amr in Washington, rather than to the US ambassador in Israel, the US and Palestinian officials said.
So Biden is essentially making Amr a kind of ambassador to the terrorists. But he’s not representing America to the terrorists, he’s representing the terrorists to America.
