Anyone who says there’s no difference between Democrats and Republicans need only look at the Supreme Court, women’s rights, and LGBTQIA rights to see what nonsense that is. But that’s all domestic policy.
On foreign policy it’s a very different story. The differences between Republicans and Democrats in international relations are miniscule, and where they do differ slightly, sometimes Democrats are better, sometimes they’re not. The rhetoric is usually better with Democrats, but that’s about all you can count on.
Nowhere is that clearer than in Palestine. Administrations from both parties have consistently opposed even the hint of Palestinian rights, regardless of the rhetoric they spouted. Joe Biden is proudly continuing that tradition of trampling on Palestinian rights and demonstrating the belief that Palestinians are, in Washington’s view, sub-human. And he’s doing it with gusto.
