    What Biden Told Netanyahu Behind Closed Doors...

    What Biden told Netanyahu behind closed doors: "This is starting to get dangerous for us" - Laura Rozen - POLITICO.com

    Vice President Joe Biden arrived in Israel as a friend. As a matter of fact, he is considered to be the greatest friend of Israel ever to have been a member of the U.S. Senate. Legislation that he promoted over the years ensured the Israelis’ security and welfare. It is that great friend of ours who now feels betrayed.

    While standing in front of the cameras, the U.S. vice president made an effort to smile at Binyamin Netanyahu even after having learned on Tuesday that the Interior Ministry had approved plans to build 1,600 housing units in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Ramat Shlomo. But in closed conversations, Joe Biden took an entirely different tone. ...

    People who heard what Biden said were stunned. “This is starting to get dangerous for us,” Biden castigated his interlocutors. “What you’re doing here undermines the security of our troops who are fighting in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan. That endangers us and it endangers regional peace.”
    It's about damn time.

    Good. I'm tired of always feeling like our government agrees with every decision Israel makes.

    If this is true. Good. I have nothing against the Israeli people and I'm sure they for the most part could care less about us supporting them. But the fact that they keep pissing off Muslims is a serious issue that the 4 previous Presidents refused to deal with because Protestant America has a hard-on for Israel.

    I saw a trailer...
    Waiting for Armageddon | Home

    Apparently something like 20 million americans wish to do everything they can in order to fan the flames of war in hopes that it will end in apocalypse so they can be raptured etc.

    Doesn't seem like the best made documentary ever but have any of you ever heard of this?

    I grew up in that. It is behind some of the unblinking support of Israel from the far right religious groups.

    The only thing that matters to you people is that that Biden dunderhead put down Netanyahu.....it wouldn't have mattered what the issue is. Notice the other posts talking about right wingers agreeing with Israel all the time, which is a lie. But it wasn't about this issue, it was about disagreeing with Israel for once. Yeah, go Biden you show'em. This whole thread so far almost looks antisemitic in it's generalization.

    Only Catz mention right wingers and she went even farther and said it was the religious right. And she is right. Israel can do no wrong to these people because to them Israel is just trying to fulfill biblical prophecy.

    I wish we would disagree with Israel more often because we treat them like they are a golden boy.

    Netenyahu should have replied mind your own ****ing business.

    Or perhaps he should have told Biden to stop the construction of the Nets arena in NY that displaced people, that destroyed homes of the low income mostly minorities.

    What Israel does in its own borders is no ones concern.

    If Biden doesnt like it then act and stop the monetary support of Israel. Which would result in a regional war, and force the US into a worse position.

    Honestly the Palestinian should be of no concern to Americans, the very same people who celebrated the 9/11 attack dancing in the streets,

    It's so typical to use the "anti-semetic" race card anytime some criticizes the GOI. It has become rather boring actually.

    I am have my own opinions of Israeli politics.

    But, due the disproportionate number of semetic moderators on this forum I usually just keep them to myself. Nothing can get you on the bad side quicker here, at Debate Politics, than siding against Israel on any given issue.

    That being said, I will pick my own battles. This ain't one of 'em. But I do hope someday that the US will tell Israel, "You're on your own buddy." I think they'd do fine without us. This US unconditional support of their actions, at our expense, has become quite irritating.

    Sink or swim.

    That's fine. Israel is a sovereign nation. In that case, they don't need the almost $3 billion in subsidies that we give them each year. Seems like a fair trade to me. We can screw off, and they can take care of themselves militarily and financially.

    But, as long as we are subsidizing them, and our relationship with them is compromising our ability to work with other middle eastern nations, then they shouldn't be telling us to bugger off.

    That's just my take.
