Biden’s Hypocrisy: Says ‘Never Again’ but His Actions Say Otherwise

Biden says "Never again," but does he mean it? Evidently, no. Americans and Israelis can not trust the words from his mouth.

President Biden’s recent remarks have stirred significant controversy, especially following his Holocaust Remembrance Day speech where he said “Never again,” yet, despite his strong words, his actions tell a very different story. In a stunning reversal, Biden has indicated a halt in the delivery of crucial precision weapons to Israel, particularly if Israeli forces decide to move into Rafah, a stronghold of Hamas in Gaza. This decision is a stark contradiction to his professed unwavering support for Israel, exposing what many see as hypocrisy at the highest levels of U.S. foreign policy.

When we invoke the solemn vow of “Never Again,” it must be more than lip service, especially when our friends face threats. President Biden’s recent actions—or lack thereof—reveal a stark disconnect between his administration’s promises and its policies. Instead of standing firmly with Israel, a steadfast ally, Biden’s hesitation to provide vital military support as Hamas intensifies attacks in Rafah is profoundly troubling. This attack endangered not only Israeli soldiers but also civilians and potential American hostages being used as human shields by Hamas.

This reluctance could have severe consequences, not just for Israel but for regional stability and U.S. interests. By withholding critical support when it’s most needed, Biden risks alienating Israel and undermining the very principles of mutual defense and strategic partnership that have long underpinned the U.S.-Israel relationship. At a time when solidarity and strength are paramount, Biden’s policies align more with giving Hamas a strategic advantage rather than fortifying an ally facing existential threats. This is not just a failure of leadership; it’s a dangerous precedent that could embolden adversaries and diminish our standing on the global stage.

The ramifications of President Biden’s actions ripple far beyond mere military tactics; they’re entwined with electoral maneuvering and deeply impact the fundamental U.S.-Israel alliance. Biden appears to be pandering to the progressive elements within his party, potentially compromising Israel’s security and, consequently, regional stability. It’s a strategy that could backfire spectacularly, damaging not just his political standing but also the strategic posture of both Israel and the United States.

America should never yield to the whims of factions that oppose both American and Israeli values. The principles upheld by Israel—democracy, freedom, and resilience—are quintessentially American. To turn our backs on these is to abandon the solemn pledge of “never again.” We must not falter in our commitment to these ideals, lest we undermine the very foundations of our longstanding alliance.
