There is a growing body of evidence that UNRWA is hopelessly entangled with the terrorist groups that have been active in the various “Palestinian” refugee camps (hah) and cities, and who most recently perpetrated the worst attack on Jews since the Holocaust. Israel has provided evidence (video and other) that shows UNRWA employees actively participating in the terror attacks of October 7th, and supporting Hamas via shared infrastructure. Of course most people who pay any attention to this sort of thing and who have an ounce of common sense knew that long ago, but the evidence is now so damning that it can’t be ignored, even by the western governments that fund UNRWA.
Well…except for the Biden/Obama junta!
President Joe Biden on Friday appointed Palestinian-American attorney Maher al-Bitar, who served on President Barack Obama’s National Security Council as Director for Israeli and Palestinian Affairs and as deputy to Samantha Power, to be the new director of the NSC intelligence service. Politico, which broke the news, described Al-Bitar’s new job as “the day-to-day connective tissue between the intelligence community and the White House.” A graduate of Georgetown University’s Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service, al-Bitar received a Master of Science in Forced Migration from Oxford University’s Refugee Studies Center on a Marshall scholarship and has worked with the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) in Jerusalem.
In normal times with normal administrations, this sort of appointment would be toxic…radioactive! It would have been quietly shelved and some milquetoast replacement would have been chosen, instead of a high-profile Arab with links to a thoroughly discredited organization that has acted in support of terrorism.
But this is 2024, and the Biden/Obama administration is completely co-opted by a core of rabid Jew-haters whose most fervent goal is the ascendance of Iran and the destruction of Israel. They simply don’t care about the optics, because this appointment galvanizes their support in the pro-terror Arab and Somali communities on which the junta depends for votes. Their vile calculation is that enough Jews will reflexively vote Democrat no matter what, so why not let out their Judenrein sensibilities for all the world to see!
But it also signals a shift in the Deep StateTM. Traditionally, the state department was anti-Semitic, but with this sort of appointment the administration is moving towards a broader pro-Iran and pro-Arab tone, which is indistinguishable from an anti-American, anti-Israel, anti-Western one. And that fits perfectly with the goals of the Obama wing of the Democrat party!
And lest you think this is just one of many drone milling about the directionless White House, this is a real job with real power and access to the highest levels of intelligence. Allowing anyone linked with terrorism anywhere near that position is a profound failure in governance and an ongoing danger to America and its allies.
Which sounds just right for the drooling idiot figurehead in the Oval Office.
