    Surge Summary: Pretty quickly in his new presidency, Joe Biden is rewarding the terror state Iran and ignoring America’s ally Israel – returning to the former Obama Administration’s Middle East status quo. That can’t end well.

    by Gary Bauer

    Well, that didn’t take long.  Barely two weeks into office and President Joe Biden is already rewarding Iran.

    In a major foreign policy address yesterday, Biden announced that he was ending military support for the campaign against the Houthi rebels in Yemen, who are backed by the Iranian regime.  Iran is turning the Houthis into Yemen’s equivalent of Hezbollah in Lebanon.

    “This war has to end,” Biden declared.  Sure, that would be nice.  But tell it to the ayatollah, who is using Yemen as a launching pad for attacks against Saudi Arabia.

    Meanwhile, many observers noted a glaring omission in Biden’s remarks yesterday.  He never mentioned Israel once.  Not when discussing the conflict in the Middle East or when he listed the “leaders of many of our closest friends” and allies he had spoken to recently.

    According to various reports, Biden has yet to speak with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and yesterday’s omission was a deliberate message that Israel is once again getting the cold shoulder as yet another Democrat administration reorients our foreign policy away from Israel and toward Iran.
