The leftist mobs shrieking hate and blocking ambulances claimed that they were fighting for “democracy” in Israel by demanding unlimited power for an unelected leftist judiciary that picks its own members.
This is what “democracy” looks like.
President Biden on Tuesday said he hopes Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “walks away from” plans to pursue reforms to the country’s judiciary…
“Like many strong supporters of Israel, I’m very concerned, and I’m concerned that they get this straight. They cannot continue down this road,” Biden told reporters after a speech in North Carolina on the economy.
“Hopefully the prime minister will act in a way that he can try to work out some genuine compromise. But that remains to be seen,” Biden added.
Biden said Netanyahu won’t be invited to visit the White House “in the near term.”
Democracy looks a whole lot like a foreign coup.
Biden falsely claimed, “We don’t want to interfere… Anyway, we’re not interfering. They know my position. They know America’s position.”
…and if you doubt that…

Or I could just list every time that a Biden official, right down to the damn Secretary of Defense, warned Israel not to pursue democracy and check the unelected and unlimited authoritarian power of the leftist judiciary.
Or Biden’s own, “They cannot continue down this road.”
“I want to stress that all of that concern comes from a place of respect, and friendship and admiration for the Israeli people, and for Israel as a country and Israel’s democracy,” John Kirby, a White House spokesperson on national security issues, told reporters on Monday.
And how better to admire Israel’s democracy than by crushing it?

More rage from the mouthpiece of the Beast. Biden regime is the mouthpiece of the Beast.
What Beast? The Beast I am referring to is the Beasts of Revelation 13. Those Beasts are already controlling all the Gentile governments. This is why we have chaos in the streets of all USA and European cities.

Biden would like a coup against Israel like they did with the coup against Ukraine’s government in 2014
Kirby’s now trying to walk that comment back (https://www.israelnationalnews.com/news/369396). Daniel, who–name names–is it that runs Bidens Israel portfolio?
Way back in the old days (2021-22) Biden was the head of a political party proposing to pack the U.S. Supreme Court. How would Biden have liked an Israeli leader to lecture him on how it was threatening democracy and how it cannot “continue down this road” and to refuse to have any contact with the U.S. administration as long as court packing was being considered. Besides, Israeli judicial reform is only a pretext for these demonstrations. The real reason for them is to overturn the results of Israel’s last election. BTW, I have no doubt that the Biden administration is helping with the demonstration, providing guidance and, through State Department funded NGOs, money for them. Biden and his administration are simply evil. It’s only competence seems to be in hurting the American people and their allies.
“Leftist mobs shrieking hate and blocking ambulances”??? Is there an ounce of nuance un your brain? Can you not see that the outpouring of anger in the streets is without precedent in Israeli history, and therefore, important, and, therefore, worthy of mature, serious analysis? Do you have any interest whatsoever in explaining what’s actually happening to your readers?

Finally, someone who genuinely grasps the the germ of the crisis presently overtaking the country. In lieu of a responsible and comprehensive account of the tempest we are experiencing, Greenfield enlists shallow labels (leftists) as his emojis. Nothing could be more insulting to his readers from one defining himself as an investigating journalist. Netanyahu wears his face as a mask. Too many in this and earlier governments suffered his gross self-interest and perfidy – Gantz included. With the patently false promise of a National Guard subjugated to him alone Gen-Gvir can expect the same. Netanyahu lives by the adage: First win. Then do damage control.
Daniel Greenfield says
Dude, the outpouring of anger in Israel is just another Thursday. Just like it is in France and Spain.
You don’t know anything about Israel except what the media tells you.
Thanks, Daniel, for this brilliant analysis.
BIden speaks with forked tongue. He is a friend to the mullahs and Israel beware. BIbi knows this.
