President Joe Biden just issued an executive order that sanctions “persons undermining peace, security and stability in the West Bank,” naming four Israelis who’ve already been apprehended by Israel law enforcement for their crimes.

The underlying result? It opens the door for more persecution of Jews.

As Gol Kalev, author of “Judaism 3.0” and a columnist in Israel for The Jerusalem Post says: This executive order paves the way for other countries, other governments, other entities with antisemitic bent to issue their own declarations against the Jewish people, tipping the scales a little bit more to making it seem if Israelis are the aggressors in the region — not Hamas, not Hezbollah, not Muslim terrorists.

The executive order comes as Biden is preparing to travel to Michigan, home to the largest Arab-speaking population in America, and as his administration continues to push a two-state solution between Israelis and Palestinians — despite the fact the Jewish nation largely considers the two-state solution died on October 7, the day Hamas launched its terror assault.
