President Biden’s response to the October 7 massacre in Israel was slow and initially supportive of the country, but later softened, drawing criticism for appearing pro-Hamas.
The administration’s shift in stance raised concerns, with Biden attempting to shift focus to Islamophobia.
The approach was seen as a political tactic, consistent with Biden’s career of aligning with passing political trends.
“So, in this moment, we must be crystal clear: We stand with Israel. We stand with Israel, declared
“And we will make sure Israel has what it needs to take care of its citizens, defend itself, and respond to this attack,” promised Biden after the Oct. 7th attack.
Karine Jean-Pierre recently said from the podium, “For too long, Muslims in America, and those perceived to be Muslim, such as Arabs and Sikhs, have endured a disproportionate number of hate-fueled attacks and other discriminatory incidents.”
Adding, “We all mourn the recent barbaric killing of Wadea Al-Fayoume, a 6-year-old Palestinian American Muslim boy, and the brutal attack on his mother in their home outside Chicago.”
