RJC Slams the Biden Administration's Continued Undermining of Israel

Washington, DC – The Republican Jewish Coalition released the following statement in response to the Biden administration overturning the Trump-Pompeo Doctrine.

RJC CEO Matt Brooks said:

Today, the Biden administration added yet another lowlight to its campaign of undermining Israel by overturning the Trump-Pompeo Doctrine, which recognized that according to international law, Israelis have a right to live in Judea and Samaria, which are rightfully part of the Jewish homeland. Labeling these communities as illegal affirms the BDS movement’s anti-Israel premises. The communities at issue, located west of the West Bank security barrier, are not preventing peace - Palestinian terrorism is.

In the aftermath of the horrific October 7th massacre - when America’s leaders should live up to our proud history of standing with Israel against its deadly enemies - the Biden administration has: shamefully sanctioned Israelis by a first-of-its-kind executive order; pressured Israel to recognize a Palestinian state, which would reward Hamas’ barbarism; and said that Israel’s response to Hamas terrorists in Gaza has been “over the top”, even though - according to John Spencer, the chair of urban warfare studies at West Point - the Jewish state has done more to prevent civilian casualties than any military in history.

Joe Biden’s Middle East policy doctrine has been exposed: undermining the Jewish state while it is at war, and sending signals that will embolden our shared enemies.
