While a bipartisan delegation was in Israel reaffirming US-Israel ties, the State Dept was deleting references to Palestinian incitement and terrorism from its Congressional report. This is so Congress will continue to fund terrorism against Israel.

Antiochus vs. the Maccabees
"The Free Beacon obtained copies of both reports and found the Biden administration deleted information about terror incitement and Palestinian support for the BDS movement. The State Department declined to comment on the changes."

If you think it's Islamophobia or Arab-hatred to name the Arab attacker of a rabbi—as attacks against Jews skyrocket in the US—you're part of the problem.

You deserve the truth
