US Vice President Joe Biden says Israel must rely on its own military power when facing Iran.

U.S. Vice President Joe Biden left Washington Saturday night for a five day trip to the Middle East.

Biden’s itinerary includes stops in the United Arab Emirates, Israel, the Palestinian Authority and Jordan.

He is set to meet with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem, Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen) in Ramallah, and Jordan’s King Abdullah II in Amman.

A senior White House official told reporters Friday that no major breakthroughs are expected in the Israel-Palestinian Authority conflict on this trip, however.

Nor will Biden make any major recommendations on the issue, according to the official. Instead, he is expected to focus on increasing cooperation between the U.S. and allies on the fight against Da’esh (ISIS), and the Syrian crisis.

  1. Genocide continues in Syria and Iraq; RAPEfugees taking over Eurabia; the ottomans declaring an end to civil liberties as they push to exterminate the Kurds; killary going to jail

    Apparently uncle joe must find a diversion and seek a pretense to go on a warpath against the Jewish State.

    WONDER: will it be “settlements”; will it be Israel “using too much force” to defend herself against jihadists; perhaps it will be Israel’s refusal to follow obama’s orders to help the ottoman massaxre Kurds?; Will he bitch that Israel is being “too aggressive” against terror tunnels? Will it be the Jews “not grateful enough” to the most AntiJew president in US history? So many options as to why the groper is going. None of the reasons is in Israel’s benefit

  2. In the smoked filled back room of the White House here is the latest of what is happening there…. Biden is bieng prepped to the press on foreign policy by his appearance in the war torn area of the middle east. Hillary is going to be indited or so seriously wounded by bad publicity relating to her illegal use of private servers and passing on highly secret emails to her illegal server etc and etc. that she will be indited and/or will have to quit her race to the White House… so here comes Biden all prepped and ready to re-enter the foriegn policy field as if he knows everything and will be able to run for Pres. in Hillary's stead. So we will have gotten rid of a crook and replaced her with a dunce ! All hail the Democrats……..
