Terrified of losing the votes of anti-Israel “progressives” President Joe Biden has disgracefully threatened to stab Israel in the back in its war with genocidal Hamas terrorists in the Gaza Strip.

Biden is bending over backward to win anti-Israel votes in swing states with large Muslim populations, where anti-Israel sentiment is popular, including Michigan, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Georgia, Minnesota, Arizona and Wisconsin.

On top of this, growing numbers of congressional Democrats have sharply criticized Israel for causing civilian casualties and suffering in Gaza and have demanded that Biden cut aid to Israel unless it halts military operations in the enclave. Pro-Hamas demonstrators have regularly disrupted Biden events around the nation for months.

If the Democrats were serious about human rights, they would be calling for the bloodthirsty terrorist group Hamas to surrender and release the 134 hostages they continue to hold, including several Americans. But no, for some reason they can’t muster up that decency.

Instead, the Israel critics are succeeding in pulling Biden closer to their hostility against our only democratic ally in the Middle East. 

Biden’s latest attack on Israel came when he threw a well-planned and heavily publicized temper tantrum in a call Thursday with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, following Israel’s tragically mistaken killing of seven World Central Kitchen aid workers distributing food in Gaza this week. 

Biden threatened on the call to limit U.S. support for Israel in its war with Hamas if Israel does not meet his demand for an immediate cease-fire in Gaza and increase the flow of food and other humanitarian aid into the enclave. Disgustingly, Biden’s demands mirror Hamas’ demands, as Secretary of State Blinken’s remarks seem to draw a moral equivalency between Hamas’ bloodthirsty declaration of war against Israel and the Jewish state’s efforts to defend itself.

Israel has acknowledged responsibility for killing the World Central Kitchen workers with airstrikes that were launched in the dark of night on their vehicles in a terrible case of mistaken identity. Israeli officials have promised an investigation and are taking action to avoid such mistakes in the future by coordinating more closely with aid groups going into Gaza.

This is one of the awful situations involved with war. In contrast, when Hamas terrorists kicked off their war with Israel by invading the Jewish state on Oct. 7, they deliberately murdered over 1,200 people in cold blood, raped and tortured many victims, and took about 240 people to Gaza as hostages. Hamas continues firing rockets into Israeli communities indiscriminately, without regard for the potential impact on civilians.

The contrast between how Israel and Hamas are waging war couldn’t be greater. While Israel takes extraordinary measures to minimize civilian casualties, Hamas wants as many civilians as possible to die — including Gazan civilians, to stoke world opinion against Israel. And that’s the point.

Hours after the Biden-Netanyahu call, the White House said Israel has agreed to open another crossing into Gaza to increase the delivery of food and other humanitarian aid to the 2.2 million people living there. This is a step that Israel will likely get little credit for.

Sadly, civilians in Gaza are trapped, by their own Hamas leadership. Those terrorists hide behind and underneath the innocent in tunnels as Israel seeks to destroy the cancer that is Hamas. Egypt is barring Gaza war refugees from entering and Hamas is barring them from leaving, thereby committing a war crime by using them as human shields. But virtually every day we are told that Israel is the problem. And why should Hamas stop or surrender when the Western world, led by the feckless Biden administration, are promoting and supporting the Hamas rhetorical strategy?

The Biden administration and the world should be demanding that Gazans choosing to flee be allowed into Egypt. Instead, Biden demanded in his call with Netanyahu that Israel declare a ceasefire and allow more food and other aid into Gaza despite Hamas continuing to hold 130 hostages it seized on Oct. 7 (including as many as 50 who may be dead). Israel has agreed to support a ceasefire, allow more aid into Gaza, and release hundreds of Palestinian prisoners in return for even a partial hostage release. But Hamas refuses to accept the deal and Israel gets blamed. Which is exactly the point.

But much of the world has turned its back on Israel, blaming the victim of a massive terrorist attack for the war Hamas started, and demanding that Israel accept a so-called Palestinian state that could threaten its survival. It’s as if the world condemned America after the 9/11 attacks and demanded we turn New York state over to Osama bin Laden to establish an al Qaeda state.

Still, defying the president of the United States leaves Israel in a dangerous position because it is dependent on arms sales and aid that primarily comes from the U.S. to defend itself against enemies dedicated to its destruction. As a result, any reduction in U.S. support for Israel could pose an existential threat to the Jewish state. And yet, Biden is purposefully throwing a stalwart American ally, a democratic Jewish state, under the bus in a disgusting display of the morally rudderless president and Democratic Party in a craven effort for votes amongst marginal, but loud, extremists in their own party.

I hope the Israel-Hamas war ends soon. But while it rages, it’s an unfortunate but unavoidable fact that civilians will be killed, just as they are in all wars.

America killed civilians most dramatically by dropping atomic bombs on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki to end World War II in 1945, killing an estimated 214,000 people instantly and thousands more from radiation sickness later. But the atomic bombs saved the lives of many Americans in our military and Japanese citizens who would have died in a U.S. invasion of Japan, had that nation not surrendered after our nuclear attack.

Israel won’t be dropping any nuclear bombs on anyone. But it should not be expected to live next to a terrorist haven in Gaza controlled by Iran, via its death squad Hamas, which has promised to attack Israel again and again. While continuing to seek to limit civilian casualties Israel must be allowed to destroy Hamas and end the terrorist group’s oppressive rule over Gaza that has brought misery to the Arabs living in Gaza as well as Israelis.

War is War!!! Israel is defending herself against an EVIL ENTITY (HAMAS) who attacked first. What is the IDF to do to avoid civilian casualties when HAMAS is using the Gaza civilians as a SHIELD? Take a look at past history, civilian casualties are unfortunately a part of war whether we like it or not. Israel has been surrounded by enemies since 1948. They want to get along with their neighbors but those neighbors want to claim a LAND THAT THEY ARE NOT ENTITLED TO. Even worse, the countries that are supposed to be friends, have been abandoning Israel where Israel is now basically alone. MICHAEL is still there defending Israel.

Stay strong Israel!! The true American people support Israel. The ignorant administration of “Biden the Inept” will be over with soon enough!
His pandering to a small group of Islamic extremists, LGBTQ groups, Environmental fools, corrupt corporations, terrorist isn’t going to keep him in office.
We the American people have already passed judgement on him and even stanch democrat voters are deserting him and his policies.
Everything that has happened in the last 3 years is clearly his fault from Afghanistan debacle , the Ukraine mess, inflation and now his trying to ditch our support for Israel.
Trump in 2024 is the only solution short of civil war and a lot of democrat voters are going to Trump, they just don’t speak out about it in fear of becoming target’s fot his corrupt, criminal regime.

If Biden and the democrats lose the Jewish vote because they were too busy sucking up to the anti-Israel crowd it would serve them right.

The only thing Biden has ever cared about is himself and staying in power. He’ll pander to any group, even those who support terrorism, in an effort to cling to the power he has.

Israel fired two generals and have launched an investigation after the aid workers convoy was accidentally targeted. Compare that to Biden who, during his disastrous Afghanistan withdrawl, drone attacked a vanload of innocent, Taliban-fleeing 12 family members. Bidens reaction? Joe had a Coke and Hunter snorted some coke. Ceasefire? There was one on October 6th before Hamas decided to murder unarmed Jews.

Joe Biden has sold his soul for the Arab vote. He’s stabbed our faithful friends in Israel in the back while lying to them face to face. I don’t blame Israel if they ever trust the U.S. again. The only thing he hasn’t done there yet is to move our embassy to Gaza! More to come.

The current administration has been waging war on the United States for years. They import millions of aliens to infest our country, terrorize our people and spread disease, filth, crime and illegal substances nationwide. They have plenty of money to arbitrarily persecute and imprison innocent people. They antagonize and harass Jews, Christians, and Whites. They drive and promote psychological abuse and brainwashing in schools, places of employment, government agencies and neighborhoods. They will not rest until they murder Donald Trump. These people are reenacting to the letter many periods of history when entire societies were destroyed. Be aware. Be prepared. Defend your country!

As awful as President Biden stabbing our great Democratic Ally is, worse for America and world peace by pandering to a noisy minority for his personal election hope, is the message sent to our enemies. His weakness in supporting allies is seen by Russia, China and Iran as greenlighting their military assaults on Ukraine and NATO, Taiwan, and the Arab Middle East. America no longer leads. It deters no tyrant. We all are now in far greater danger.

What is Hamas? Civilians are not separate from Hamas. Every family contributes males over 16 years old to be in jihad. Civilians abused the hostages when they were marched in. Gaza is a welfare state were all food and supplies must be brought in daily. The civilians were not ignorant about the tunnels, weapons. The civilians are not innocent victims.

The anti-Semitism, i.e. hatred of Jews in this nation as well as around the world in these modern times is simply put, mind boggling. Our nation’s centers of higher learning is a prime example of this, i.e. Harvard, MIT, Penn State, clear across America & most points in between.
We have a reckless president that is a bonified racist along with the rest of his Barack HUSSEIN Obama administration, which got all of this anti Israel sentiment rolling in 2008.
MAGA, AMERICA FIRST all the way.

Israel’s enemies are terrorists. Hamas is a group of terrorists. Anyone supporting Hamas supports terrorism. If you support terrorism you are a terrorist. Terrorists are in control of the Whitehouse.
We have an election coming up. Do you want to continue supporting terrorism.

I have to disagree with the auther Tammy Bruce on Isreal using Nuclear bombs. If Iran enters the war on Hamas’ side, and Isreal if fighting a two front war, (and could be losing) they would drop nuclear wepons on Iran because general wind directions of east to west would keep radiation out of Isreal.

Hamas is the problem, not Israel. If the Democrats don’t stop their procrastination against Israel, we may just have condemned the hostages to death. Hamas is not going to give in. Why are so many people blind to the evil of Hamas ?

The entire Democrat Party is a bunch of bloodthirsty murderers who will sacrifice all of the Jews in Israel, just as they sacrifice minority babies here in America on the altar of their god, Satan.

This article is total BS. What is happening in Gaza is not war, it is full on genocide in the face of the world. Carpet bombing densely populated cities massacring 35,000 civilians the vast majority women and children, targeting and killing over one hundred aid workers, bombing mosque, Christian Churches and hospitals, all in little more than six months, all done with American supplied weapons, all done with Biden administration support. With the Biden administration staffed by Israeli dual citizens, Sec State Blinken, etc., it is nothing short of the most sickening propaganda to claim that the Biden administration is anti Israel. Nock it off!
