In a weird and awkward display of desperation, President Joe Bidenwent on his knees during a meeting with Israeli President Reuven Rivlin at the White House on Monday.
During the humiliating performance, President Rivlin and his chief of staff Rivka Ravitz were observed smiling at Biden.
“Finally, something that truly meets the definition of the sanctification of God,” Yossi Elituv of Michpacha tweeted (as translated by Google). “President Biden kneels in honor of the ultra-Orthodox Rebecca Ravitz, who combines two important careers: a mother of 12 children, and the head of the outgoing staff at the President’s House. Ravitz will continue to sail far.”
The Israeli paper Kipa.co claimed on Friday that Biden “knelt in honor” after Ravitz told him that she has “no less than 12 children.”
“The two presidents talked at length about the commitment to strengthen relations between the two countries,” Kipa reported.
“My commitment to Israel is known and engraved in the rock,” Biden said as reported by Kipa and translated by Google. “Includes an unquestionable commitment to Israel’s self-defense. I can say that Iran will never receive nuclear weapons on my watch.”
According to Israel National News, Rivkah was commended by Orthodox Jewish media in 2015 for refusing to bow to the Pope because she was “halachically forbidden to bow to him because of the cross” and refusing to shake his hand “since she is observant of halakha (Jewish law).”
The Pope reportedly responded by bowing to her and concealing his cross with his hand.
Rivlin’s staff attempted to defuse the situation by claiming Rivkah did bow to the Pope before the photo was taken, according to an anonymous source.
Did something similar happen with Biden last week?
I’m not sure, but I do know that our president should not be kneeling in front of anyone other than God.
Conservatives chastised Obama during his presidency for submitting to foreign leaders, but for some reason they have nothing to say about it now.
