Such a despicable piece from the grotesque Peter Beinart is not a surprise. Like Thomas Friedman and Michele Goldberg of the New York Times, Beinart is a pro-jihad propagandist and a vicious anti-Israel Jew. Like many in the mainstream media, Beinart will consistently blame Israel for the lack of progress in the so-called peace process, and rarely (but probably never) blame the barbaric Jew-hatred, terrorism, and incitement taught in most segments of Palestinian society.
However, what Beinart is proposing would certainly be implemented by Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden, and all of the other Democrats running for president: black mail Israel into signing a suicidal “peace” agreement with Palestinian terrorists in Ramallah. #JEXIT.
Peter Beinart calls for US to pressure Israel by withholding military aid, World Israel News, May 22, 2019:
In a Monday op-ed in The Forward, Peter Beinart added to his series of attacks on Israel by arguing that the U.S. should use American military aid as a means of pressuring Israel to change its policies vis a vis the Palestinians.
Beinart, who also contributes to CNN and The Atlantic, writes that American governments bear a responsibility for the death of the two-state solution by failing over the last 25 years to make “Israel pay a price for undermining it.”
“It’s time for a new generation of American progressives — especially progressive Jews — to make it conceivable again,” to pressure Israel through threats of withholding aid, he said.
He says that American presidents fear being labeled anti-Israel or anti-Semitic if they use American aid as a way to pressure Israel.
Beinart writes approvingly of U.S. presidents who did threaten pull U.S. aid from Israel, from President Dwight Eisenhower, who demanded that Israel evacuate the Sinai in 1956 to President George H.W. Bush, who refused in 1991 to give Israel $10 billion in loan guarantees until it froze Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria.
In his piece, Beinart also praised Minnesota Representative Betty McCollum’s 2017 proposed legislation to prevent U.S. tax dollars from going to the Israeli military for allegedly detaining children. “Shamefully, only one Democratic presidential candidate, Representative Seth Moulton, has endorsed it, according to McCollum’s office,” he writes.
