Biden’s Troubling Pick for White House Spokesman, Karine Jean-Pierre
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
The White House announced on Thursday that Karine Jean-Pierre, a veteran anti-Israel activist who is a partner to CNN correspondent Suzanne Malveaux, will replace outgoing press secretary Jen Psaki, raising potential ethical quandaries.
 
The announcement drew celebratory headlines in the mainstream press: Jean-Pierre is the first black woman and openly gay person to serve in the role.
 
…Jean-Pierre’s anti-Israel past—which includes a stint as senior adviser and national spokeswoman for MoveOn.org, a far-left anti-Israel group that advocates for boycotts of the Jewish state—is raising red flags in the pro-Israel community. The selection of an Israel critic is also likely to further strain ties with the pro-Israel community and Israeli government, which already is strongly opposed to the Biden administration’s efforts to ink a new nuclear deal with Iran.
 
Jean-Pierre has been open about her animosity toward the Jewish state. She has accused Israel of committing "war crimes" and has backed efforts to boycott the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, the United States' most prominent pro-Israel lobbying shop, cheering Democrats in 2019 for boycotting the group's annual gathering in Washington, D.C., for "boldly [choosing] to prioritize diplomacy and human rights over the power of a lobbying organization." AIPAC, she claimed, helped the Trump administration "sabotage" the Iran nuclear deal and also "supported the group that's credited with inspiring President Trump to enact the Muslim Ban and has been known to spread anti-Muslim racism." She accused the group without evidence of trafficking in "severely racist, Islamophobic rhetoric."
The Jewish News Syndicate adds:
Republican Jewish Coalition national political director Sam Markstein told JNS that Jean-Pierre had a long and “deeply troubling” history of anti-Israel positions.
 
“She was the national spokeswoman for a far-left group that advocates for boycotts of Israel, she’s accused Israel of committing ‘war crimes,’ cheered efforts to boycott the mainstream pro-Israel AIPAC conference, and was ‘honored’ to stand alongside anti-Semite Linda Sarsour at a gala in 2017,” said Markstein. “These aren’t isolated incidents; they are a pattern of anti-Israel hostility. Jewish Americans are rightfully concerned that at a time of rising anti-Semitism, Ms. Jean-Pierre is being elevated to such an important position in the Biden White House.”
