Biden Regime To Announce Sanctions Against IDF Unit

The Biden regime is expected to announce sanctions against IDF unit for human rights abuses. This is a punishing break with our most devoted and stalwart ally, all while continuing to fund Iran, the world’s largest state sponsor of terror and it’s vicious jihad proxies in Gaza (Hamas), Syria and Lebanon (Hezb’allah) and Judea, Samaria (‘Palestinian’ jihad) in their genocidal jihad against the tiny Jewish nation.

It beggars belief, too gruesome to contemplate. The United States of America is rewarding savage jihad terrorists unimaginable bounty for the most unspeakable massacre and monstrous atrocities against the Jewish people since the Holocaust.

The message the Biden regime is sending to jihad terrorists is clear. We will break with and punish our allies and you will reap untold wealth and legitimacy for the most monstrous brutality and obscene savagery against the Jewish people.

The US is expected to announce sanctions against IDF unit for human rights abuses
The IDF unit operates in the West Bank and is mainly composed of haredi men and extremist youth who hold-far right views, and were not included in other combat units in the IDF.

By Baral Rabid, Jerusalem Post, April 20, 2024:

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken is expected to announce sanctions against the IDF’s Netzah Yehuda Battalion in the next few days, according to three American sources.

The sanctions are a result of human rights violations against Palestinians in the West Bank.

This will be the first time that the United States government has imposed sanctions on an Israeli military unit for its activities in the West Bank.

The sources stated that the American sanctions will prohibit the transfer of US military aid to the Netzah Yehuda Battalion, will prevent its soldiers and officers from taking part in training with the United States military, and will prevent the soldiers from this unit from participating in activities that receive American funding.

The sanctions are based on a 1997 law by former Democratic Senator Patrick Leahy, which prohibits the United States from providing military aid or training to security forces, the military, or the police when there is reliable information about human rights abuses.

A senior US administration official told Walla! that Blinken’s decision is based on incidents that occurred before October 7 and occurred only in the West Bank.
This was the only unit Blinken decided to sanction

One of the sources stated that Blinken decided not to impose sanctions on several additional units in the IDF and the Israel Police that were also under investigation because they had corrected their conduct.

On Thursday, the American investigative website ProPublica reported that a special committee of the American State Department, which investigated allegations of human rights violations in the West Bank, forwarded recommendations a few months ago to Blinken to impose sanctions on several units of the IDF and the Israel Police and to prevent them from receiving American funding.

At a press conference in Italy on Friday, Blinken was asked about these recommendations, and claimed that he had made a decision on the matter and that an announcement about it would be made in the coming days.

Israeli officials condemn sanctions

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu expressed outrage at the reported intention to sanction the unit, writing on X that “sanctions must not be imposed on the IDF!”

Netanyahu added that in recent weeks he’s been working against the imposition of sanctions on Israeli citizens.

“At a time when our soldiers are fighting the monsters of terror, the intention to impose a sanction on a unit in the IDF is the height of absurdity and a moral low,” wrote Netanyahu. “The government headed by me will act by all means against these moves.”

The Netzah Yehuda Battalion was originally established as a special military unit for haredim (ultra-orthodox), in which all of the soldiers and officers were men.
