In a statement this Tuesday, May 11, Donald Trump condemned Biden for being responsible for the escalating violence between Israel and Palestine. He insisted on the need for the US to support Israel for defending itself against Hamas terrorist attacks. In addition, he highlighted the difference between the current presidency ruled by the far-left Biden and the Trump Peace administration.
Following the reported violent events between the two countries, Trump expressed his disclaimer in a statement posted on his website.
“When I was in office, we were known as the Peace Presidency, because Israel’s adversaries knew that the United States stood firmly behind Israel and that there would be swift retribution if Israel was attacked,” the text reads.
“Under Biden, the world is becoming more violent and unstable because Biden’s weakness and lack of support for Israel is provoking new attacks against our allies.”
Indeed, in August of last year, the Washington Examiner reported that President Trump signed a historic peace agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE). That agreement meant that the Jewish state was to be recognized by a major Gulf Arab nation.
It is worth noting that previously most Arab countries had refused to recognize Israel, citing their support for Palestinian claims, i.e., including Israel within the territory of Palestine. However, that ended with a diplomatic breakthrough signed by Trump, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed of Abu Dhabi.
Emirati officials presented the agreement as a blessing for the Palestinians. “It immediately stops annexation and the potential for violent escalation,” UAE Ambassador Yousef al-Otaiba said at the time.
A month later, Trump made the historic peace agreements between Israel, the UAE, and a Bahrain official at a White House press conference.
And in December, Daily Caller reported when Trump announced another of his diplomatic breakthroughs between Israel and Morocco.
Turning to the current situation, the Biden administration is not promoting peace with Israel but the opposite.
The Honest Columnist reported that Trump’s statement concludes by criticizing Democrats who “continue to support the crazed anti-American Rep. Ilhan Omar, and others, who savagely attack Israel while under terrorist attack.”
Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar tweeted Tuesday that Israel should not threaten “Palestinian children.”
Palestinian children deserve advocates for their humanity, safety and security. No exceptions.

Then in another tweet, she took aim at the statement, pointing to Trump as a “white supremacist” who supports “a neo-Nazi government,” referring to Israel.
It's no surprise that a white supremacist who incited an insurrection against our government, called Neo-Nazis "very fine people," and separated kids from their mothers would support human rights abuses against innocent kids.
It’s ok to be pro-humanity and pro-Palestinians. https://t.co/YZ8kfP2Axi

For her part, Michigan Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib tweeted Monday that Biden should defend those who fire rockets at Israel.
I was 7 years old when I first prayed at the Al Aqsa with my sity. It's a sacred site for Muslims. This is equivalent to attacking the Church of the Holy Sepulchre for Christians, or the Temple Mount for Jews.

Despite reports of attacks by Hamas—a terrorist group that seeks to boycott Israel – and that the same terrorist group’s leader Fathi Hammad called on Palestinians in Jerusalem on Friday to buy cheap knives to behead Jews, Democrats insist on supporting terrorism and attacking Jews.
Not surprisingly, both Democrats participated in an anti-Semitic Hamas event last year, the Washington Free Beacon reported.
The Biden administration only professes violence characterized by the left, something contrary to Trump’s accomplishments in a short time. For Trump, peace included negotiating with the same Palestinians in Jerusalem and the other Middle Eastern nations rather than condemning Jews or supporting terrorist organizations.
