Joe Biden Must Stop Undermining Israel

Washington, DC – The Republican Jewish Coalition released the following statement in response to President Joe Biden’s statement regarding the seven aid workers who were killed in Gaza by an Israeli misfire.

RJC CEO Matt Brooks said:

The deaths of the seven World Central Kitchen aid workers is a tragedy, which appears to have been a terrible mistake; and Israel has responded as a professional military should when it makes a mistake: accept responsibility, transparently investigate the causes, adjust its practices, and potentially discipline those who made a reckless error. 

President Biden, lecturing the Government of Israel, stated, “Israel has not done enough to protect aid workers…Israel has also not done enough to protect civilians.”

Mister President, let’s be clear: 1. Hamas is the party that intentionally and indiscriminately targets civilians in Israel and in Gaza, and 2. Based on everything we know, Israel has done more in this war to prevent civilian casualties than any military in modern history, including our own.

When the US military botched an airstrike in Kabul killing ten civilians, on Joe Biden’s watch in 2021, he dismissed criticism, offered no apology, and went to the beach for the weekend. Needless to say, Israel issued no statements of condemnation. That’s not how you treat an ally - unless you’re Joe Biden and the Democrats.
