US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has announced a visit to the Jews-only Israel to show “unwavering support” for Benjamin Netanyahu—despite the latter’s electoral alliance with the Jewish Power party whose leaders seek to expel all non-Jews and regard Christians as “blood sucking vampires.”
According to a report in the Jerusalem-based Times of Israel, Pompeo is to “visit Israel in [a] show of unwavering’ support, 2 weeks before [the] election” and has no intention of visiting anyone other than Netanyahu.
The Times of Israel quoted a US official as saying that America and Israel’s “shared interests don’t go into suspension because of the electoral cycle.”
The US secretary of state travels to the Middle East February 19–23, stopping first in Kuwait for talks before heading to Jerusalem and Beirut, his spokesman Robert Palladino said.
In Jerusalem, Pompeo “will reaffirm both privately and publicly during that visit our unwavering commitment to Israel’s security and its right to self-defense,” a senior State Department official said.
Pompeo’s visit to the Jews-only state of Israel is, according to the Times of Israel, a “welcome one for Netanyahu, facing corruption allegations and an uncertain battle to hold on to power.”
Pompeo has no plans to meet Netanyahu’s rivals, who include former military chief of staff Benny Gantz and ex-finance minister Yair Lapid, leaders of a new party which is Likud’s most serious rival in the April 9 elections.
This is despite the fact that Netanyahu has made a formal electoral pact for the upcoming April election with the Otzma Yehudit (literally, “Jewish Power”) party which has as its policy the expulsion of all non-Jews from Israel, and whose leaders have said that “Christians are ‘blood sucking vampires’ who should be expelled from Israel.”
The “Jewish Power” party is led by former National Union MK Michael Ben Ari and activists Itamar Ben Gvir, Baruch Marzel and Bentzi Gopstein.

When asked about this electoral alliance with violent and openly anti-Gentile parties, Pompeo brazenly told CNN that he would not comment on the electoral pact.
“Election campaigns are tough. We’ll allow the Israeli people to sort this out, and I am confident that when the election’s over the United States will continue to have a strong, important, very, very deep relationship with Israel that protects the American people and benefits Israel as well.”
Of course, any white or European party which had policies like the Jewish Power party—say which said that Jews are “blood sucking vampires” and need to be expelled from non-Jewish nations—would immediately be ostracized and attacked by people like Pompeo.
The Israeli government and the international Jewish lobby would also be calling for the banning of any such party and the arrest of its leaders for “incitement.”
However, the double standards which the international Jewish lobby applies: one set of rules for itself, and another for everyone else, aided and abetted by establishment puppets like Pompeo, ensures that Jews get to do whatever they want, while non-Jews must continually be subject to the rules that Jews make for them.
