As Joe Biden begins to announce his potential staffers, the future of the Democratic party becomes clear; a staffer who advocates for Palestinian suicide bombing and heavy criticism of any Jews appointed.

REEMA DODIN: ADVOCATING IN FAVOR OF SUICIDE BOMBERS

Biden named two people to his potential White House staff. Reema Dodin and Shuwanza Goff were each named deputy director of the Office of Legislative Affairs.

Dodin currently serves as deputy chief of staff and floor director for  Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill), the assistant minority leader. If the appointment comes to be,  Dodin, who was born to Arab-Israeli immigrants in North Carolina, will be the first Arab-American White House staffer.


"The American people are eager for our Administration to get to work, and today's appointees will help advance our agenda and ensure every American has a fair shot," Biden said in a statement. "In a Biden administration, we will have an open door to the Hill and this team will make sure their views are always represented in the White House."

Normally, this would be a tribute to diversity however Dodin brings an extreme political agenda to her job. This was evidenced in a speech she gave at a church in Lodi, California in 2002, in which she justified suicide bombings against Jews as "the last resort of a desperate people."

One year earlier, she took part in a demonstration at UC Berkeley calling for the university to divest from Israel, according to the Berkeley Daily Planet, a local news publication. At the demonstration, protesters inaccurately compared the political situation in Israel to apartheid in South Africa.

KeyWiki wrote that Dodin  is in regular contact with the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR)

Several media have reported that the front-runner to be Joe Biden's press secretary will be Karine Jean-Pierre who has a history rich with anti-Israel positions which include support for the Boycott Divestment Sanctions (BDS) movement which many, including the US State Department, consider is anti-Semitic.

NBC News' Geoff Bennett cited "multiple sources" on Wednesday as saying that Karine Jean-Pierre is currently the top candidate for the position of the Whtie House press secretary. Jean-Pierre is the chief of staff for Biden's running-mate, Kamala Harris and served as a senior advisor to the Biden presidential campaign. 

She is the senior advisor and national spokeswoman for the George Soros funded MoveOn.org. Jean-Pierre was a vocal supporter of the Democratic boycott of the 2019 annual convention of the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).

"You cannot call yourself a progressive while continuing to associate yourself with an organization like AIPAC that has often been the antithesis of what it means to be progressive," Jean-Pierre wrote in Newsweek. She went on to praise the Obama-brokered Iran nuclear deal as a core progressive value.  Shockingly, she accused the Israeli Prime Minister of committing war crimes.

"Under his leadership of Israel, according to the United Nations, Israel may have committed war crimes in its attacks on Gazan protesters," she wrote. She also accused the pro-Israel organization of being racist and "Islamophobic." She went on to claim that the Trump administration was anti-Semitic.


TLAIB: NO JEWS ALLOWED 

Biden's appointments are already drawing fire from within his own party. Rashida Tlaib (D-MICH), born in Detroit to Israeli Arab parents, criticized Biden for appointing Anthony Blinken as his Secretary of State. Blinken was born to Jewish parents.

"So long as he doesn't suppress my First Amendment right to speak out against Netanyahu's racist and inhumane policies," Tlaib tweeted. "The Palestinian people deserve equality and justice."

Dov Hinkind, founder of the group Americans Against Antisemitism, tweeted, "Biden names a Jew to his cabinet ... What's Rashida's response?! 'Welp, as long as that Judische pick doesn't stop me from focusing my hatred on one country, Israel, then he's a good Jew!' It's not your 1A [first amendment] right you're trying to protect but your vile Jew-hatred!"

"You can just say you're worried because he's Jewish..."  the Republican Jewish Coalition tweeted.

Tlaib also criticized the State Department's decision to label the Boycott Divestment Sanctions movement as anti-Semitic.
