Biden’s 5th Gaza Veto in UN Makes Him an Ace… of Genocide

Nearly a thousand Palestinians were killed or wounded in Gaza Thursday after Israeli forces opened fire on people surrounding an aid convoy. The UN Security Council tried to pass a resolution condemning the massacre, but President Biden came to Israel’s defense with his fifth veto of Security Council votes to end Israeli genocide in Gaza.

Israel admitted they shot into the crowd all right, but it was the Palestinians fault for threatening Israeli soldiers and stampeding. First Israel starves the Palestinians fleeing US and Israeli bombs, then opens fire on them when they rush the food aid trucks.

Biden’s veto was based on a simple, self-serving fact… he didn’t have all the facts warranting a condemnation of Israel’s grotesque ongoing genocide in Gaza.

In WWI, a fighter pilot who shot down 5 enemy planes was termed an Ace, a mark of distinction sought after by every combat fighter pilot. Biden’s fifth veto of Israel’s endless civilian massacres in Gaza makes him an Ace of Genocide, something no other world leader dare emulate.
