The U.S. Weaponizes the FBI Against Israel

(JNS) Caroline Glick - Al Jazeera reporter Shireen Abu Akleh died on May 11 in Jenin while she was embedded with Iranian-controlled Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorists engaged in a gun battle with IDF soldiers. The battle took place in the midst of an onslaught of murderous Palestinian terror attacks against Israelis. On May 5, two PIJ terrorists from Jenin hacked three Israelis to death with axes and wounded three more in the city of Elad. The IDF's operation was legitimate and necessary. Any reasonable observer could have been expected to recognize this fact. Moreover, the Palestinian Authority refused to cooperate with Israel's investigation into Abu Akleh's death. The PA refused to permit Israeli medical examiners to examine her body or IDF investigators to look at the bullet that killed her. Everyone knew the IDF didn't target Abu Akleh. By having the FBI open a new investigation of IDF soldiers in relation to her death, President Biden and his advisers are demonizing America's most powerful and loyal ally in the Middle East. Journalists are killed in all war zones. The U.S. would never investigate British or French soldiers. They would never investigate Ukrainian soldiers. They would never investigate their own soldiers for actions leading to the death of reporters embedded with terrorists during a firefight. All U.S. foreign and defense policy professionals know there is nothing to investigate either legally, morally or operationally. And they know that there is no way any U.S. ally other than Israel would ever be treated this badly. In directing the FBI to open this probe, the Biden administration is engaging in a political campaign to delegitimize Israel by accusing Israeli soldiers of murdering journalists. This action supports Palestinian terrorists and their war for Israel's destruction, which is antithetical to U.S. interests.
