From Conservative Brief:
Joe Biden caught many off-guard this week after photographs swept across social media of him getting on his knees in front of a world leader.
Michpacha’s Yossi Elituv shared an image on Twitter of Biden kneeling before outgoing Israeli President Reuven Rivlin and his chief-of-staff Rabbi Rebecca Ravitz.
According to Israeli media, Biden then offered his “unquestionable commitment to Israel’s self-defense.”
The translation of the tweet reads: “Finally, something that truly meets the definition of the sanctification of God. President Biden kneels in honor of the ultra-Orthodox Rebecca Ravitz, who combines two important careers: a mother of 12 children, and the head of the outgoing staff at the President’s House. Ravitz will continue to sail far.”
סוף סוף משהו שעונה באמת להגדרה של קידוש ה׳. הנשיא ביידן כורע ברך לכבודה של רבקה רביץ החרדית המשלבת בין שתי קריירות חשובות: אם ל-12 ילדים, וראש הסגל היוצאת בבית הנשיא. רביץ עוד תמשיך להפליג רחוק. @YediotAhronot pic.twitter.com/YHjrwPVuNl

The Time of Israel framed the image as Biden was kneeling before Rivlin’s chief of staff after learning she had 12 children.
Biden expressing America’s commitment to Israel may not sit well with Democrats.
Late last month, Minnesota Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar came under fire for another anti-Semitic outburst.
During an interview last week on CNN, Omar told host Jake Tapper that she did not regret comparing the U.S. and Israel to terrorist organizations.
Below is a transcript of the exchange:
OMAR: “If you are in someone’s backyard, can you say you are defending yourself?”
TAPPER: “It’s a good question. On the subject of the Middle East, you have said, as you know, many of your fellow House Democrats after comments you made earlier this month about the U.S. and Israel, you were questioning Secretary of State Blinken about where victims of war crimes could get justice. You made comments to him and also you tweeted: ‘We must have the same level of accountability and justice for all victims of crimes against humanity. We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the U.S., Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban.’ Ultimately, Democratic leaders said that equating the U.S. and Israel with Hamas and the Taliban ‘foments prejudice.’ And as you know, a group of Jewish House Democrats wrote a letter to President Biden saying that accusing Israel of acts of terror, as you and other members of the Squad have done, is anti-Semitic. Do you regret these comments?”
OMAR: “I don’t.”
Later in the segment, Tapper asked:
In 2019, you said lawmakers support Israel because it’s ‘all about the Benjamins,’ which implies that politicians only support Israel because of money. There was a tweet from 2012 when you said Israel had hypnotized the world. Do you understand why some of your fellow House Democrats, especially Jews, find that language anti-Semitic?
Omar responded by attacking her own colleagues and didn’t accept any responsibility for her comments.
“I have welcomed anytime my colleagues have asked to have a conversation to learn from them, for them to learn from me,” Omar said.
“I think it’s really important for these members to realize that they haven’t been partners in justice. They haven’t been equally engaging in seeking justice around the world and I think I will continue to do that,” she added.
Omar declared: “It is important for me as someone who knows what it feels like to experience injustice in ways that many of my colleagues don’t, to be a voice in finding accountability, asking for mechanisms for justice for those who are maligned, oppressed and who have had injustice done to them.”
