With Attack On Linda Sarsour Does Biden Campaign Want To Gift Election To Trump Right wingers?

By Mohammed Nurhussein

August 23, 2020

Joe Biden’s Campaign Rapid Response Director Andrew Bates tweeted “Jo Biden condemns Linda Sarsour for her view and support of BDS.” He goes on to say that Biden has been a strong supporter of Israel and is vehemently against any antisemitism his entire life, implying that Sarsour is antisemitic.

Israel’s High Court Seeks ‘Balance’ in Turning Palestinian Villages Into Army Training Zone

Amira Hass

‘We have an ear for music,’ justices tells Palestinian residents of Musafer Yatta, urging them to accept a compromise in ongoing legal battle

“A compromise is better than a ruling. In the end, as in many cases, the answer is some kind of balance,” the judges said to the parties involved.

The Israel Defense Forces, whose voice Benayahu was, never such caused destruction and devastation, certainly not in Lebanon, certainly not in Beirut. What does the IDF have to do with the destruction of infrastructure? An explosion in the Beirut port? Why would the most moral army in the world have anything to do with bombing population centers?
