Biden Accused Of ‘Betrayal Of Israel’ As 2024 Re-Election Remains In Doubt

By Victor Winston, updated on February 13, 2024

A recent discussion between President Joe Biden and Jordan's King Abdullah II has sparked a wave of criticism.

Critics have slammed President Biden for what they perceive as a betrayal of Israel following his meeting with King Abdullah II, highlighting a contentious stance amid the Israel-Hamas conflict.

President Biden was accused of forsaking Israel by his detractors after he engaged with King Abdullah II of Jordan. The meeting, marking the first visit to the White House by an Arab leader since the October 7 terror attack by Hamas, was supposed to underscore solidarity but instead fueled debate. Both leaders advocated for a ceasefire, advising against a significant offensive in Rafah without ensuring civilian safety. This advice has not sat well with everyone.

Critics, including prominent figures such as Senator Tom Cotton and Fox News host Mark Levin, did not mince words in their condemnation. They articulated concerns that President Biden's actions signify not only a betrayal of Israel but also a pandering to the more extreme and controversial factions within his party. The response on social media echoed these sentiments, with Biden facing backlash for allegedly supporting those sympathetic to Hamas and issuing false accusations against the Israel Defense Forces.

In response to the criticisms, President Biden stressed his dedication to peace in the region, notably between Gaza and Israel. He spoke of a vision for "an enduring peace with two states for two peoples." However, his remarks were met with skepticism, particularly for his apparent failure to apply pressure on Hamas' supporters, like Iran or Qatar, to end their aggression.

Voices of Discontent Grow Loud

Senator Tom Cotton took a hard stance, expressing disbelief at Biden's approach toward Israel and his interactions with perceived Hamas supporters within his party. Mark Levin's comments were particularly strident:

Biden uses the Jordanian King as a propagandist and smears Israel up and down. It is hideous. And then the two walk off the stage without taking a single question.

Such critiques highlight a deep division in perceptions of the U.S.'s role and responsibilities in mediating conflict in the Middle East. Biden's efforts to foster peace have, paradoxically, incited controversy and accusations of bias.

Road to Peace or Path of Contention?

The fallout from the meeting and the subsequent reactions underscore a broader, highly charged debate about U.S. foreign policy, alliances in the Middle East, and the complex dynamics of the Israel-Hamas conflict. With the White House not responding to requests for comment, the administration's silence adds to the speculation and debate over its stance and future actions.

President Biden's meeting with King Abdullah II was intended as a step toward peace but has ignited controversy. Critics accuse him of betrayal towards Israel and leniency towards Hamas, questioning his commitment to the region's stability. Amidst jokes about memory issues and vocal opposition, the path forward remains mired in complexity, with calls for a balanced and principled approach to an enduring peace between Gaza and Israel.
