Crazed Lunatic Supports Fascist Murdering IDF
He said Israel has an "absolute right" to defend its security interests, according to a transcript Politico obtained of an interview that was to be broadcast Wednesday evening on the "Charlie Rose" show on Bloomberg TV.
"It's legitimate for Israel to say, 'I don't know what's on that ship. These guys are dropping eight -- 3,000 rockets on my people," [He] said.
The flotilla of six ships, loaded with assistance for the Gaza Strip's 1.5 million residents and aimed at breaching Israel's blockade of the strip, was organized in part by a Turkish group that has ties to Hamas, the terrorist group that controls Gaza.
Israel's raid before dawn Monday on the largest ship ended in bloodshed when passengers clashed with Israeli commandos. Nine passengers were killed, reportedly all Turks, and seven Israeli soldiers were injured. Israeli troops boarded and commandeered the five smaller ships without incident.
[He] repeated the Obama administration's position that Israel should ease the Gaza blockade for humanitarian reasons, and should investigate the incident. He also emphasized that he understood Israeli concerns.
"As we put pressure, and the world put pressure on Israel to let material go into Gaza to help those people who are suffering, the ordinary Palestinians there, what happened?" he asked. "Hamas would confiscate it, put it in a warehouse, sell it."
Who is this maniac supporting the murdering of innocent peace envoys?
Vice President Biden.
I'm sure he's on his own on this one as Obama has shown himself to be no friend of the Israelis. Joe will probably make a "clarifying statement" in the next few days talking about the importance of "all sides" and blah blah blah. Hillary Clinton is still nowhere to be found. I'm amazed that she has been so marginalized by the administration and has let herself become so marginalized.
I'm sure the LGOMB will be first up to the plate to condemn Biden. Yep, any minute now.
