Biden gives aid and comfort to Hamas, prolonging the war. | Eastern North Carolina Now

Commentary:  We obviously have a "person" in the White House who does not know how to fight and win a war.  Hint:  You don't give aid and encouragement to the enemy when you have thousands of your forces in the gunsites of the enemy.  Even if you are not going to support what an ally is going to do, you don't argue the case on TV.  

How much of this stupidity are we going to take coming out of the White House?  

Here's the backstory from the Epoch Times:

News that President Joe Biden’s administration has paused a delivery of “high-payload” bombs and could withhold more weapons for Israel sparked outrage on Capitol Hill on May 9 among Republican senators.

U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin confirmed at a May 8 Senate hearing that the Biden administration had delayed delivery of a shipment of “high-payload munitions” to Israel, and said the administration was considering the risks that certain weapons “could create a lot of collateral damage.”

Hours later, President Biden told CNN that civilians “have been killed in Gaza as a consequence” of Israel’s use of 2,000-pound bombs. The president went on to reiterate his opposition to a large-scale Israeli combat operation in the southern Gazan city of Rafah, stating, “If they go into Rafah, I’m not supplying the weapons.”

“It’s outrageous,” Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) told NTD News. “I’m sure Hamas is probably very happy with him. And it encourages them and actually makes it less likely that they’re going to do what needs to happen, which is surrender.”

Mr. Rubio, who serves as the ranking member of the Senate Intelligence Committee and also sits on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said there could be a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip if Hamas surrenders, lays down its arms, and hands over hostages they took on Oct. 7.

“I think when they hear news like that, and then they see these freaks out here on the streets calling for Israel’s destruction as well, it encourages them to keep fighting, to hang on and to not give an inch, whether it’s in negotiations, or in their continued use of human shields, where these cowards hide in tunnels while people die above them,” the Florida Republican continued.

Mr. Rubio suggested the decision to pause the delivery of certain munitions to Israel is to appeal to “an element of his base that wants—wants Israel destroyed and is pro-Hamas.”

Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-Ala.) also called the decision to pause some munitions deliveries “ridiculous.” The Alabama Republican said he has been entirely supportive of Israel since the beginning of the war, but said public opinion appears to be shifting against the effort.

“Everything kind of started to turn around on Israel, thinking that they, they’re the culprits here. The culprit was Hamas. They’re the one that went in and killed several 1000 people in Israel and I’ve been all behind Israel, not getting revenge, but taking back what is—what is rightly theirs,” Mr. Tuberville told NTD News.

There is no difference between Americans who support Hamas and Americans who supported the nazis in the 1930s. The rest of us whould shun them.

Even the British press is now commenting on Biden's actions on Israel being driven by his trying to win Michigan in November instead of anything related to the Middle East.

Actually, there were sanctions on arms to both countries, and Biden waived them to allow those arms sales. You would know that if you read the article I linked, Bobbie.

The most outrageous thing is that Hamas is holding five American citizens as hostages, and Biden has not lifted a finger to help them. If we had a real president, he would not be doing favors for Hamas. He would be telling Hamas that unless those hostages were released immediately, they US would go in and help Israel

Also, since the Qatar government allows Hamas' leadership to live there, it looks like Biden could have told them that if they wanted to buy arms from us, they needed to sit down hard on Hamas to release those US hostages. Qatar is sheltering an organization that is holding US citizens hostage and we allow them to buy arms? President Trump would not allow such nonsense.

These are long standing agreements which im guessing previous presidents followed.

The day before delaying arms to Israel, Biden okayed arms shipments to Lebanon and Qatar. Lebanon is for all practical purposes controlled by Hezbollah terrorists, and Qatar is the regime which shelters Hamas' political leadership. These are just the latest pro-terrorist moves by the pro-terrorist Biden regime.
