"Israel must remain a strong ally of the United States, however its decisions "must be made in Jerusalem", said Delaware Senator and Democratic Party Vice Presidential nominee Joseph Biden during a teleconference held with members of the Jewish press on Wednesday.
Biden also expressed his support of Israel’s right to protect itself, saying, "Israel has the right to defend itself and it doesn’t have to ask, just as any other free and independent country.
The Vice Presidential nominee vowed that the U.S. will "always stand by Israel, without telling Israelis what they can and cannot do." " Haaretz
Joe Biden has an undeserved reputation as a deep thinker. You have to wonder if Joe thinks that the US is obligated to go to war in support of Israel under any and all circumstances.
For example – If the Israelis decide to attack Iran without our agreement, are we obligated somehow to go to war against Iran as well?
