President Joe Biden is expected to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu this Wednesday morning on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly in New York.
The bilateral meeting comes amid tensions between the two leaders over Netanyahu’s judicial overhaul plan and a day after Biden touted Israel’s increased ties to its neighbors in an address to the General Assembly.
In a briefing last week, national security advisor Jake Sullivan told reporters that the leaders would “discuss a range of bilateral and regional issues focused on the shared democratic values between the United States and Israel and a vision for a more stable and prosperous and integrated region, as well as to compare notes on effectively countering and deterring Iran.”
Biden met at the White House in July with Israeli President Isaac Herzog, who holds a largely ceremonial position, to discuss the Israel-Palestinian conflict and Iran’s nuclear program. There was no mention of Israel’s Nuclear Program which supposedly does NOT exist but everyone knows it exists, right Dimona?
A day before that meeting, Biden spoke on the phone with Netanyahu and called for “the need for the broadest possible consensus” in the debate over his judicial overhaul efforts, the White House said. Biden also “expressed concern” about settlement growth and reiterated a need to “maintain the viability of a two-state solution and improve the security situation in the West Bank.”
But of course, every American President except the proudly and open Zionist Donald J. Trumpstein, has said the same thing and the illegal Jewish Settlements continue on as if they were part of official U.S./Zionist Policy protected by the Israeli Defense Forces ignoring every UN resolution passed by the UN General Assembly condemning their use to bring about the misguided and jaundiced Eretz Israel dream to set forth by 19th-century European men who rode in horse carriages used candles to light their homes.
John Kirby, a spokesperson for the White House National Security Council, had previously said in July that Biden and Netanyahu would meet in the fall.
During Tuesday’s speech to the United Nations, Biden praised efforts to create a more “integrated Middle East.”
“It demonstrates how Israel’s greater normalization and economic connection with its neighbors is delivering positive and practical impacts even as we continue to work tirelessly to support a just and lasting peace” between Israelis and Palestinians, Biden said.
It’s not entirely clear what Biden means by “integrated”. For example, he made no mention of a Palestinian State or what is to become of the millions of Palestinians living under Occupation in both the West Bank and Gaza. Does he mean they should be citizens of Israel? Deported to Jordan? What does he mean by integrated?
As you know, I have promoted a much bigger vision of the Middle East than these two knuckleheads. I want a Middle East Union; one people, one union with the freedom to live, worship, work, and travel just like the EU.
The Middle East should have only one currency; the Middle East Union Dollar. Why can’t these idiots see that a bigger vision that replaces this piecemeal system created by The Skyes-Picot Agreement over one hundred years ago has failed to meet the future?
Well, we know that big money/power does NOT want a MEU; The Saudis are way too happy ruling over the serfs. And the Zionists, well, they have their own game of banking and occupation to play on the RISK board. And the USA? Well, it’s the Roman Empire all over again, fighting with itself from within, too tired to actually be a leader and set a vision for the future.
So allow me; this little guy living on a dirt road with chickens in Mexico to say it out loud!
THE WORLD NEEDS A MIDDLE EAST UNION!
350,000,000 million strong; Jews, Christians, Muslims, and Pagans….everyone living in freedom! Is that so hard?
I mean, the Soggy Royal Family need not worry. They can all go retire and live in the South of France alongside the Former King Charles and his family dining on Escargot while the world leaves their 20th-century ideas behind!
Oh, Biden will also hold a bilateral meeting with Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva later Wednesday. The U.S. president will then participate in campaign receptions in the afternoon before departing New York for the White House in the evening.
Have Fun, Everyone!
