There is not telling what might happen if Israel resumes bombing civilians, but we dare make this prediction based on some observations we made since October 7. Basically that the bombing of Palestinian civilians gave rise to higher levels of antisemitism, that it mobilized disaffected US voters and civil servants Biden is losing touch with, and that the global manifestation against Israeli violence should not be ignored. These factors alone should give pause to Jewish leaders in the U.S. and Europe to use their influence to pressure Israel against the resumption of hostilities, which seems to be starting to happen.
Given that Israel continues to extend the deadline to exchange hostages, it seems like Netanyahu is finally getting the message that his war on Gaza has harmed Jewish interests globally. Senator Chuck Schumer speech on the Senate floor was an effort to dial down antisemitism because there may be a secret acknowledgment internally that Israel has to stop killing civilians. Period.
Today, the Netanyahu government finds itself in a tight spot. Damned if they do, and damned if they don’t. A situation of their own making, we might add, with help from the President of the United States.
If anything, this war showed the world the savagery of both Hamas and Israel.
VICTIMS OF VIOLENCE
Palestinians and Israelis are both victims of violence, but not on the same scale or level. Not when the IDF kills innocent civilians for revenge, Israeli settlers kill innocent Palestinians to steal their lands, or when a hateful American shoots three innocent Palestinian students in Vermont. There are mass killings, as Hamas did to innocent Israeli civilians on October 7, and then there are crimes against humanity, as Israel conducts its war against Hamas regardless of the cost to civilian life.
Let us not confuse or obfuscate the difference. One that many around the world know it is true, and their humanity cannot still while the genocidal Netanyahu exacts revenge on Hamas through the dead bodies of women and children. It cannot happen that way, and people across this planet will not allow it to happen again.
If anything, this war showed the savagery of Hamas, we all knew about; but it also showed the savagery of the Israelis and how their treatment of the Palestinians, they want to cleanse or exterminate, may have played a crucial role in shaping a new world opinion about Israel.
If Israel resumes bombing civilians, we predict many countries to break relations with Israel, as well as Joe Biden to lose in 2024.
HOW ISRAEL TREATS THE PALESTINIANS
The controls in place to hide the truth have all collapsed during this war, to include how Israel detains Palestinians without due process and jails them for years without their families ever knowing what the charges are. A real democracy, Israel is not. In fact, Israel is a Middle Eastern North Korea when it comes to its abusive treatment of the Palestinian people.
If Israel resumes bombing civilians, we predict many countries to break relations with Israel, as well as Joe Biden to lose in 2024. Our President started it when he just took to the sidelines, refusing to block Israel from its inhumanity against Palestinian civilians.
And honestly, we hope he does lose. As a lesson to future U.S. Presidents that how we treat Israel should never come at the expense of innocent lives.
If Biden does not have the common sense to understand this simple truth, then he does not deserve our votes.
