The Leftist cabal is brilliant when it comes to manipulation, propaganda and confusing and muddling the discourse. Leftist propaganda in the war on Gaza continues to minimize the brutal atrocities of October 7, ignore Hamas’ cruel use of human shields to rack up the tally of dead Palestinians, and likewise ignore the rejection of Palestinian refugees by neighboring Islamic countries. Add in the mainstream media’s constant barrage of details from the hell of war. Every war ever fought has devastating collateral damage. But not every war has the media parading the details of this damage without adequate context before the public for propaganda purposes. World War II saw 40 million civilian deaths, including children. When a war is justified, moral people do not display its disturbing details far and wide. In the backdrop of Gaza comes more anti-Israel news from Time Magazine about the Biden Democrats:
The U.S. Department of State is set to implement travel bans on any Israeli settlers who are implicated in attacks on Palestinians in the occupied West Bank.
The move was announced by Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Tuesday, as part of efforts to establish stability in the Palestinian territory where extremist settler violence is rampant, and has worsened as a consequence of the Israel-Hamas conflict.
“We have underscored to the Israeli government the need to do more to hold accountable extremist settlers who have committed violent attacks against Palestinians in the West Bank,” Blinken said in a statement. He also reiterated President Joe Biden’s stance that settler attacks are unacceptable.
Note the usage of the term “Israeli settlers” and the presentation of the Palestinians as victims in an allegedly “occupied” territory. No facts of history are recognized; nor is the truth about the Islamic jihad against the Jews that was being waged long before the state of Israel was even born. According to Time:
Blinken called on both Israel’s leadership and the Palestinian Authority to share responsibility for upholding stability in the West Bank and curbing attacks on both sides. The statement did not outline the details of any individual visa bans or how many would be implemented, but bans were implemented as of Tuesday.
More deception. Blinken compares the Palestinian Authority (PA) to Israel in an obscene moral equivalence that has become all too familiar. The PA, which works day and night to indoctrinate its citizens, from toddlers on up, that murdering Jews to achieve “martyrdom” is good and righteous, cannot be compared to Israel. The PA’s pay-for-slay program (or Martyrs Fund) pays jihad terrorists a stipend for life intended as “generous rewards to Palestinians, and/or their families, who carry out bombings, stabbings and other attacks against innocents in Israel.” The jihad is perpetually active in Judea and Samaria (that is, the West Bank).
More about the visa ban from Time:
The exact details of the visa ban policy are not yet publicly known, but the first bans were valid from Tuesday. As per State Department privacy rules, the affected settlers will not be named or identified.
The visa ban would prohibit travel to the U.S. while active, and such bans could extend to an individual’s immediate family members. Israeli citizens who currently hold visas for entry to the U.S. will be notified of their nullification, while those who don’t hold current visas and seek one will have their applications rejected, according to the New York Times.
The move will also affect the deal the Biden administration made with Israel in September to allow its citizens to travel to the U.S. without a visa using Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) under the visa waiver programme. ESTAs will no longer be granted to blacklisted settlers.
The ambiguity of the visa ban is telling. It is likely intentional, because there is no justice behind it. It will cause more division in America, as well as more confusion and chaos, and it will further embolden anti-Israel, anti-Jewish sentiment, while appeasing pro-Palestinian Muslims, and especially the powerful Muslim Brotherhood linked lobbies that made a pact with Biden which helped put him in office. The Biden administration now has full power to slap a visa ban on any Israeli it chooses to label “extremist.”
As it stands, the Biden administration will not state openly that it does not support Israel in its war against Hamas, so it now appears to be using Judea and Samaria as a distraction and a means by which it can appease the Muslim lobby.
“When asked about the visa ban on Tuesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told the press the term ‘settler violence’ is derogatory and inaccurate as it can only be attributed to a small group.” Netanyahu is absolutely correct. It is expedient for manipulators to make a mountain out of a molehill. The real issue is that Israelis are constantly attacked by Palestinian jihadists in Judea and Samaria and anywhere else that an attack can be mounted. This “small group” to which Netanyahu referred decided to take matters into its own hands and fight back against constant jihad attacks in their community, but this group cannot be compared to jihadists. As for the insinuation that Jews living in Judea and Samaria are “occupiers,” such terms are intended to further beat down Israel, the Jewish homeland. The Palestinians are the real occupiers. They are Ottoman South Syrians with no claim historically to the Holy Land. Islam conquered the Middle East and jihadists are still on a mission to complete the conquest and destroy Israel. This is the heart of the “resistance” from the River to the Sea.
Every supporter of Israel hopes that America will prove to be a true ally to the Jewish state all the way to the end of this war on Hamas, but the Democrats are showing signs of wishing to abandon Israel, especially with this announcement about imposing visa bans upon “Israeli settlers.” Aside from appeasing Islamic lobbies, the Biden administration now appears to be provoking Israel in order to get an adverse reaction it can use as an excuse to walk back its support for Israel openly. The Democrats also appear to be orchestrating the fall of Netanyahu, as much as they continue to plot against Donald Trump. Recall that during the judicial reform protests, the U.S. State Department was discovered to be funding an Israeli Leftist group that was behind the protests against Netanyahu.
