Biden will reportedly cave, give Israel $1B in new weapons and his base will go totally berserk

President Joe Biden’s antisemitic base is up in arms over a new report that he intends to sell Israel $1 billion in arms.

“The potential new $1 billion arms sale would include the potential transfer of $700 million in tank ammunition, $500 million in tactical vehicles and $60 million in mortar rounds,” CNN has confirmed.

The problem is that word of this deal comes just a week after Biden vowed to pause arms shipments to Israel unless the besieged nation halted its ground invasion of Rafah.

“Civilians have been killed in Gaza as a consequence of those bombs [which the U.S. gave them] and other ways in which they go after population centers,” the president told CNN’s Erin Burnett.

“I made it clear that if they go into Rafah – they haven’t gone in Rafah yet – if they go into Rafah, I’m not supplying the weapons that have been used historically to deal with Rafah, to deal with the cities – that deal with that problem,” he added.

These words from Biden excited the antisemitic factions of his base, as it signaled to them that he was finally turning against Israel.

Mind you, even with this vow, his anti-Israel critics were still on the fence about him given that it’d taken him so long to side against Israel.

But any goodwill Biden earned from his base with his previous vow vanished overnight after the latest report, with critics furiously assailing him for “selling out” so quickly.

It didn’t help that this latest report came just days after Secretary of State Antony Blinken admitted that Israel has likely violated humanitarian law multiple times during its war with Hamas.

“Given the totality of what we’ve seen in terms of civilian suffering — in terms of children, women, men caught in the crossfire of Hamas who have been killed and injured — it’s reasonable to assess that in a number of instances, Israel has not acted in a manner that’s consistent with international humanitarian law,” he said.

And so for the president to suddenly decide to go ahead and arm Israel anyway has triggered massive backlash from his base.

“Such wonderful options we have in November: actual genocider vs wannabe genocider,” one critic tweeted.

“It makes me want to scream. I feel like I’m living in hell…and there’s no escape,” another critic wrote.

Meanwhile, House Democrats are reportedly furious that congressional Republicans are desperately trying to expedite the transferring of weapons to Israel via the passage of a bill.

“The bill sponsored by Rep. Ken Calvert, R-Calif., would condemn the Biden administration’s decision to recently pause an arms shipment to Israel,” according to Spectrum News. “It also calls on the administration to allow previously approved weapons transfers to proceed quickly, urges the executive branch to use all congressionally approved aid for Israel as intended and states that Congress stands with Israel in its war against Hamas.”
