In his remarks at the State Department last year, Biden told Secretary of State Blinken, “The message I want the world to hear today: America is back. America is back. Diplomacy is back at the center of our foreign policy.”
America is back. To the ritual humiliations of the Obama administration. It’s not just that China, Russia and Iran are humiliating us. Even the lowest creatures on the totem pole, Mahmoud Abbas, a terrorist leader funded by the United States, humiliates Blinken.
And Blinken blinks and asks, “Please sir, may I have some more.”
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas told a group of Palestinian Americans last week that he scolded US Secretary of State Antony Blinken for failing to pressure Israel to make peace.
This comes after the Biden administration has repeatedly condemned and pressured Israel, and fought to secure Israel’s capital of Jerusalem for the terrorists by running a rogue diplomatic operation.
While Abbas has not shied away from publicly vocalizing his frustration with the Biden administration over the past year, his remarks during a private meeting with representatives of the Palestinian diaspora on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York appeared to go further and included the belittling of the United States’s top diplomat.
“I told Blinken, ‘You little boy, don’t do that,’” Abbas told the Palestinian Americans, speaking in Arabic. Some details of the meeting were first published by the Haya Washington Arabic news site.
Abbas isn’t saying anything new. His usual pitch is that peace can only be achieved when the White House pressures Israel into making every possible concession. The Obama administration tried that with Kerry. It didn’t go well because Abbas still had zero in any kind of substantive negotiations beyond demanding concessions and prisoners releases infinitely.
Even blessed with Yair Lapid holding down the government, a leftist nepotism baby with little interest in Israel’s survival, Abbas has little interest in changing his MO. And he feels confident enough to belittle the head of America’s diplomatic operation.
Asked for comment on Abbas’s remarks, a State Department spokesperson said that Blinken “has maintained a respectful dialogue with President Abbas. Beyond that, we’ll decline to comment on the content of their conversations.”
Sounds very respectful.
This is the same Abbas who ranted, “May your house be destroyed” about Trump. But the Trump administration was the first one to take a pro-Israel line in a very long time, if ever.
Abbas humiliating Blinken though is a sign of the PLO’s arrogance and Biden’s weakness.
