Biden White House Led by Islamic Supremacist Sympathizers and 'Anti-Zionists' Props Up Iran, Puts Screws to Israel
Plus: Alleged Biden corruption even looms over hostage crisis, and the truth about the 'ethics' assault on the SCOTUS
Americans have looked on in horror as pro-Hamas sympathy and genocidal Jew-hatred have erupted across college campuses, on city streets and up to Capitol Hill in the aftermath of the jihadist group’s monstrous Oct. 7 attack on Israel.
But perhaps even more horrific is how prevalent the “buttoned-up” version of this worldview is at the highest echelons of the US national-security and foreign-policy apparatus — and how the Biden administration’s Middle East agenda reflects it.
I write about several such officials, including: Senior CIA analyst Amy McFadden, who was recently exposed as a public cheerleader for the Palestinian Arabs just days after Hamas’ Holocaust-level Oct. 7th attack; suspended Special Envoy to Iran Rob Malley, the lead Iran nuclear deal negotiator and Hamas apologist now under FBI investigation; an alleged Iranian agent of influence whom Malley brought into the State Department now working in a prominent position at the Pentagon, Ariane Tabatabai; National Security Council senior director for intelligence programs Maher Bitar, a former BDS activist of Students for Justice in Palestine who worked at the Hamas-captured UNRWA; and scores of others in a new piece in the New York Post.
As I conclude:
Team Biden’s overarching goal has been once again [as under Team Obama] to make Iran the regional strong horse, coddling the mullocracy and its proxies as if they are pillars of stability in the region and putting the screws to Israel, as if it is the key irritant.
Post-Oct. 7, the Biden administration has provided rhetorical support for Israel and to date continued to provide it with munitions.
But it is arguably trying to maintain the sinister status quo to the greatest extent politically possible, and Israel self-evidently feels it must play nice given Team Biden’s leverage over it.
The White House has sought to protect Iran by de-linking it from the attack its Hamas proxy perpetrated; refusing to enforce, snap back and impose new sanctions on the mullocracy; and deterring Israel from striking Hezbollah while letting Iran’s proxies attack American assets with impunity.
On the other hand, the White House has delayed, micromanaged, imposed suffocating strictures on and executed a whisper campaign against Israel’s leader of and now pressured it into freezing its offensive against Hamas, effectively resupplying the terrorist group.
What’s more, Washington has sought to pre-dictate the terms of “peace” in Gaza, calling for Hamas-lite — the Palestinian Authority — to rule over the strip and perhaps a Palestinian state.
One can draw a clear link from the Biden administration’s personnel to its policy.

At RealClearInvestigations, I report that the American kidnap victim released by the terrorist group Hamas during its ongoing ceasefire with Israel is a great-niece of Elizabeth Hirsh Naftali, a major Democratic party donor who paid handsomely for Hunter Biden’s art and won an appointment to a plum cultural post from President Biden.
Hirsh Naftali's Biden connections went all but unmentioned as she advocated in a series of nationally televised interviews for the release of her 4-year-old grandniece, Abigail Mor Idan, a dual U.S.-Israeli citizen whose parents were murdered by marauding jihadists in southern Israel on Oct. 7. She is the only American thus far among the 61 mostly women and children at the time of publication exchanged for Palestinian Arab prisoners in a fragile negotiated truce.
A senior administration official told me that “U.S. officials insisted that Abigail be included on an early list as well as the other two Americans in this category [of women and children].”
“The President raised Abigail in nearly all of his phone calls with counterparts as well as with the Amir of Qatar on Saturday,” the official said, adding that “U.S. officials have also remained in close touch with Abigail’s family members including those the President spoke with on Sunday,” the day Abigail was returned from Gaza to Israel.
This little girl has suffered a lifetime of tragedy in a few short weeks, having reportedly seen her parents murdered before her eyes before being taken hostage by Hamas. It is understandable that any American leader would move heaven and earth to prioritize her release from captivity.
Disturbingly however, the Biden family’s dubious dealings loom over even this heartening resolution to a heartbreaking ordeal.
As Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitton said:
Once you start making deals with terrorists, even potentially innocent coincidences become controversial. It is fair to ask whether this is another example of Biden's family corruption compromising our national security.
Hirsh Naftali is set to testify before House investigators in January, a House Oversight Committee spokesperson told me.

Faced with a Supreme Court that poses the most substantial threat of any single institution to progressive rule, its opponents have drawn blood in their long-running campaign to delegitimize and destroy it.
The supreme irony is that, once again, in attempting to fend off its would-be conquerors, the Court has only undermined itself while emboldening its would-be conquerors—under a chief justice who has sworn above all else to defend the Court as an institution.
For the latest example, look no further than the Supreme Court’s newly issued “Code of Conduct.”
I explain why issuing the document represents a disastrous cave by the Court in a new piece at the Epoch Times.
