The Zionist Organization of America accused President Biden of fanning the flames of anti-Semitism by claiming that Israel was carrying out “indiscriminate bombing” in the Gaza Strip.
ZOA National President Morton A. Klein, issued a statement Thursday saying the pro-Israel group “strongly condemns the dangerous and indiscriminate statements made by President Joe Biden on December 12, falsely accusing Israel of ‘indiscriminate bombing’ in Gaza; and criticizes and calls for democratic change in Israel.” elected government, and calling on Israel to “strengthen” and reward the terrorist regime of the Palestinian Authority with a Palestinian Arab state carved out of the legal land of Israel (the so-called “two-state solution”) – while the Palestinian Authority celebrates the atrocities of October 7th, and continues to pay huge pensions to terrorists for life for killing Jews, insisting that Hamas should be part of the Palestinian state, and the ruling Fatah party in the Palestinian Authority boast of its brigades’ participation in the October 7 atrocities.
Israel’s false accusation of “indiscriminate bombing” creates more fuel for attacks on American Jews. Biden’s widely publicized reckless remarks are likely to inspire more anti-Semitism, at a time when American Jews are being attacked on college campuses and on American streets at record levels. His spokesman John Kirby said that no country, including America, was doing more to protect civilian lives. “Biden expressed his unwarranted criticism of Israel and his statements that contradict and attempt to undermine Israeli democracy at a closed-door campaign reception on December 12, 2023. Biden’s statements were then published on the White House website and amplified in media outlets around the world.”

According to a transcript shared by the White House, Biden told donors at a campaign reception in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday about recent conversations with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
“If you think about it, one of the things that Bibi understands, I think, now — but I’m not sure that Ben Gvir and the war cabinet he leads, which I’ve spoken to several times — is that Israel’s security can rest. On the United States, “But at the moment it has more than the United States. It has the European Union, it has Europe, it has most of the countries in the world that support it. But they are starting to lose this support because of the indiscriminate bombing targeting the United States,” Biden said during the reception.

“It was pointed out to me – I’m very frank with all of you – it was pointed out to me – by Bibi – that, ‘Well, Germany was bombed with atomic bombs. The atomic bomb was dropped. A lot of civilians died,” Biden continued on Tuesday. “I said, ‘Yes, that’s why all these institutions were created after World War II to make sure that it wouldn’t happen again – it wouldn’t happen again. Don’t make the same mistakes we made in 9 / 11. There was no reason for us to go to war in Afghanistan on September 11, and there was no reason for us to do some of the things we did.

Klein pointed to the Israeli ground operation as evidence that Israel is not seeking to level the entire area with bombs.
“If Israel had in fact been engaging in ‘indiscriminate bombing’ in Gaza, Israel would have long since flattened the entire Gaza Strip from the air. Instead, Israel has been launching surgical strikes on Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist targets and clashing in close quarters.” “Fighting with Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorists, which risks and costs the lives of Israeli soldiers,” Klein said in part, asking: “Why is Biden spreading these anti-Israel lies that will increase attacks against American Jews, and increase unjustified pressure on Israel, and for the benefit of Hamas terrorists and the Palestinian Authority?”
“If Biden is sincere about supporting our ally Israel, rescuing American and Israeli hostages, stopping attacks on Jews in the United States and destroying Hamas, then Biden must apologize, stop making false allegations against Israel, the Israeli military, and the democratically elected Israeli government, and stop calling for a strengthening of the regime.” terrorism affiliated with the Palestinian Authority.”
