Biden told the group of rabbis that he’s had disagreements with President Barack Obama over some of the language that he uses regarding Israel, said Klein, a Democrat who represented Congressional District 22, which includes Palm Beach.
“I will defend, down to my last breath that this administration has one of the strongest relationships in history with the Israeli government and that includes the highest level of military cooperation, intelligence gathering and sharing,” Klein said.
Klein, of course, was defeated by Allen West in the 2010 elections.
The loss of Anthony Weiner’s seat has finally driven home the point that the Obama Administration cannot go on playing both sides of the street re Israel and expect the Jewish vote to be a given. So he sends Biden to South Florida to try to shore things up.
The general consensus in the upper reaches of our society (and this has been the case in Europe for much longer) is that Israel is an inconvenience that needs to be minimised (and disposed of, if necessary) in order to keep things on an “even keel.” The sooner the Jewish community figures out they’re in the cross hairs as much as their fellow children of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, the better.
