Jack Lew: Biden’s Pick for Ambassador to Israel
Jack Lew has a rocky history with Israel and its politics. At such a critical time for God’s chosen nation, is he the right choice for U.S. ambassador to Israel?
From Breitbart. President Joe Biden nominated former U.S. Secretary of the Treasury Jack Lew as his new ambassador to Israel on Tuesday, despite Lew’s history of defending then-President Barack Obama’s hostile policies toward the Jewish state.
Lew, a highly partisan official infamous for his inability to say “yes” to Republicans during budget negotiations, also defended Obama’s attempt to create distance with Israel, and his disastrous, one-sided nuclear deal with Iran. That deal allowed Iran to emerge as a nuclear power after roughly a decade. Moreover, Lew criticized then-President Donald Trump’s decision to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem — a decision that led to the Abraham Accords. …
The Jerusalem Post noted Tuesady that while Lew is the highest-ranking former official appointed to the role, eight House Republicans have already written to the president, asking him to reconsider choosing Lew for the position.
Lew, if confirmed, would replace outgoing ambassador Tom Nides, who brought U.S.-Israel relations to a new low, and was blamed for being the “arsonist-in-chief” for his role in encouraging recent opposition protests in Israel.
