Joe Biden is walking back his statements against a terrorist group.
He’s afraid of losing Democrat voters.
Joe Biden made an apology to Hamas that will absolutely blow your mind.
President Joe Biden apologized to Muslim leaders for doubting the accuracy of the number of people the Hamas-run Gaza Health Ministry claimed had been killed.
Biden suggested in October that the casualty numbers provided by Hamas were not to be trusted.
“I’m sure innocents have been killed, and it’s a price of waging a war,” Biden said at a press conference. “But I have no confidence in the number that the Palestinians are using.”
Biden’s remarks produced an immediate reaction from radical members of the Democrat Party.
Polls have revealed that Biden’s support of Israel has resulted in alienating younger and radical Democrat voters – a key voting bloc for Biden.
“Mr. President, Michigan is an important star for you, so is Pennsylvania, and so is Georgia. And guess what? We will not forget,” said Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) at a demonstration in mid-October.
Up until recently, Biden’s tone had been pro-Israel.
NBC reported on a letter from Biden dated November 1st which said, “The people of Israel lived through a moment of pure evil” which “resurfaced horrible memories” as it was the “deadliest day for Jews since the Holocaust.”
“The United States stands with Israel,” it continued. “We will continue to ensure that Israel has what it needs to defend itself against terrorism in accordance with international humanitarian law.”
However, succumbing to pressure, Biden has since recanted his pro-Israel stance.
“The United States has led the humanitarian response into Gaza—building on years of work as the largest funder of humanitarian assistance for the Palestinian people,” Biden wrote on Monday.
“We are taking full advantage of the pause in fighting to increase the amount of humanitarian aid moving into Gaza, and we will continue our efforts to build a future of peace and dignity for the Palestinian people.”
Numerous Democrats fear that the Israel-Hamas war threatens President Joe Biden’s 2024 reelection.
Aides told the Washington Post Sunday the issue is “dividing a White House that has prided itself on running a disciplined and united operation.”
“[T]he longer the conflict goes on, the more harmful it will be for Biden politically and diplomatically. … U.S. officials remain hopeful that the conflict will not stretch into the heart of the 2024 campaign,” the Post reported.
