On May 08, 2012, The White House Office of the Vice President issued
Remarks by Vice President Joe Biden to the Rabbinical Assembly Leadership
at Westin Perimeter North in Atlanta, Georgia, 11:12 A.M.
Biden tells the Rabbis that "Itís often pointed out by my critics that I said years ago that Iím a Zionist." But he then tries to backpeddle and claim that what he REALLY said was, "were I a Jew, Iíd be a Zionist."
But the fact is that Biden did indeed say that he is a Zionist, which his critics correctly quote him on. He's very proud of it, so it's odd that he still 5 years after the clip, is so reluctant to tell the plain truth. I guess when politicians lie so often, they find it hard to tell the truth.
Here, side by side, is the transcript of Biden's May 2012 remarks and the actual video and transcript of his 2007 interview admitting plainly that he is a Zionist.
"Itís often pointed out by my critics that I said years ago that Iím a Zionist. Were I -- I said precisely, I said, were I a Jew, Iíd be a Zionist. And I want you all to realize, you need not be a Jew to be a Zionist. (Applause.)"
In the Shalom TV clip uploaded to youtube on April 4, 2007, this is what Biden says:
"There is this inextricable tie between culture, religion, ethnicity that most people don't fully understand,
that is unique and um, how can i say it? Um, so, uh strong, uh,
with Jews worldwide. There is a, there is a, I mean you know i used to say - early on when I was kid I'd say when I was a young senator I'd say if I were a jew I'd be a Zionist. I am a zionist. You don't have to be a Jew to be a Zionist."
Note: the word "inextricable" means "impossible to disentangle or separate."
Keep in mind that Biden is the one who claimed that there was No improper motive by feds at Waco, the Davidians "committed suicide".
As a U.S. Senator during hearings on Waco, Biden definitively stated "The record of the Waco incident documents mistakes. What the record from Waco does not evidence, however, is any improper motive or intent on the part of law enforcement. David Koresh and the Davidians set fire to themselveves and committed suicide.The government -DID NOT- DO THAT". (Clip can be seen at hour 1:03 in the video here.).
In reality, the government did do that. That is why the surviving Davidians, who had been charged with murder of federal agents after the siege, were acquitted of all charges. Just two days prior to the one year anniversary of the initial (Feb. 28, 1993) raid on the Branch Davidian property, a jury had acquitted all surviving Branch Davidian defendants of murder charges. The jury deliberated only four days to reach a decision after a six week trial. On 2/27/94, the Los Angeles Times reported ' 11 Waco Cultists Are Acquitted of Murder Charges : Trial: Outcome indicates jurors placed most blame on the government. Seven Branch Davidians are convicted on lesser charges. Anaheim mother agrees with defense'. [Read all about that in my 2012 article Skull & Bones/Bohemian Grover George H.W. Bush ranted about "weird cultists" in classic case of Psychological Projection.]
