‘Pathological Obsession With Undermining Israel’: Cruz Rips Biden Administration For Slamming Israeli Minister’s Visit To Temple Mount | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), a consistently staunch ally of the state of Israel, laced into the Biden administration after it criticized Israeli National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir for visiting Judaism's holiest site, the Temple Mount, on Tuesday.

    Last Sunday, the terrorist group Hamas threatened Israel if Ben-Gvir visited the Temple Mount. "The extremist Ben-Gvir is trying to convince his voters that he is implementing his promises by breaking into Al-Aqsa (Mosque)," Hamas official Harun Nasser El-Din snapped, then called the Israeli government the "government of the occupation."

    "We hold the government of the occupation responsible for any escalation if there is damage to Al-Aqsa (Mosque) or to our people who are clinging to Jerusalem," Nasser El-Din said. "We call on our people to protect Al-Aqsa (Mosque), and we are sure that our people will thwart all attempts to impose a new reality on Al-Aqsa (Mosque)."

    "The Israeli government of which I am a member will not surrender to a vile murdering organization," Ben-Gvir tweeted. "The Temple Mount is open to everyone and if Hamas thinks that if it threatens me it will deter me, let them understand that times have changed. There is a government in Jerusalem!"

    Meanwhile, a spokesman for the U.S. Embassy in Israel, referring to Ben-Gvir's simple 15-minute walk around the Temple Mount, said of the Biden administration's ambassador to Israel, "Ambassador Nides has been very clear in conversations with the Israeli government on the issue of preserving the status quo in Jerusalem's holy sites. Actions that prevent that are unacceptable."

    A spokesperson for the Biden White House National Security Council echoed, "The United States stands firmly for preservation of the status quo with respect to the holy sites in Jerusalem. Any unilateral action that jeopardizes the status quo is unacceptable."

    "The Biden administration's pathological obsession with undermining Israel is endangering the national security of America and our allies," Cruz fired. "A visit by a minister from Israel's government to a site inside Israel is not a change in any status quo arrangement, and it should not be controversial for a Jew to visit the holiest site in Judaism."

    Cruz warned that the Biden administration's statements would inflame the tensions between Israel and Palestinians, declaring, "The statements from the Biden White House and State Department, which suggest otherwise, will further destabilize the Middle East and risk inciting terrorism. They convince Palestinian officials that compromise is unnecessary because Democrat administrations will coerce our Israeli allies into making dangerous concessions."

    "The Biden administration has consistently sought to undermine Israel's security and sovereignty over its territory," Cruz noted. "It prohibited even mentioning the 'Abraham Accords,' sought to open a Palestinian consulate in Israel's capital Jerusalem, unleashed the FBI against the Israeli army, and publicly ostracized parts of Israel's democratically-elected government. Meanwhile, the administration is pouring over a billion dollars into Palestinian areas and bringing officials from the terrorist Palestine Liberation Organization to Washington, D.C. Now it is doubling down on these disastrous policies."
