Morality is the decisive way the Democratic Nominee must distinguish himself from the supremacist dictator-loving incumbent. And he just did.
Palestinian Arabs certainly deserve a good life, and live dignified lives, if they wish so in their own sovereign State (Jordan). I feel bad for the common Palestinian baby, born into a conflict not of her own, spoon-fed centuries-old Jew-hatred, while her parents often lack a decent income, the freedoms and safety that come with democracy, and peace.
I don’t have the same empathy with the Palestinian leadership, power-hungry, money-stealing, lying, hatred-mongering, parasites. And I feel even less sympathy for the religious leaders who support them or even outdo them in their antisemitism. And my dislike is even greater for non-Palestinians who supposedly ‘support the Palestinian People’ but in truth, only hate Jews and are no real friends of anyone in the Middle East.
When Linda Sarsour again maligned Israel, now in the framework of the DNC, Joe Biden lost no time to distance himself from her. That is exactly what Jewish, loyal Democrats need to see from their Presidential runner.
He did not even add that he wants to be evenhanded in supporting Israel as a Jewish State and the interests of the Palestinian People. He rightly judged that antisemitism gets to play no role in the conflict at all.
This time it was about standing up for Jews. But whenever a leader stands up for an oppressed group, the whole world becomes safer, also for Jews.
You’ll lose a few Jew-haters but you support forces for the good. That’s what counts. Trump could’ve done the same without any detectable loss in votes, reject White supremacy. He didn’t and he doesn’t (except when he mechanically reads from the teleprompter what his speechwriters wrote).
