Biden asserts US support for Israel in presidential debate on Gaza conflict

In response to a question during the Presidential Debate about the conflict between Israel and Hamas, President Joe Biden asserted that the United States is providing Israel with all necessary weapons.

The debate, produced by CNN, took place on Friday morning (28 June), in Georgia, marking the inaugural debate between former President Donald Trump and President Joe Biden.

Dana Bash, anchor of CNN’s Inside Politics and co-anchor of State of the Union, moderated the debate and posed a question about the Middle East conflict to President Biden.

Bash highlighted the severe impact of the conflict, stating, “In October, Hamas attacked Israel, killing more than a thousand people and taking hundreds of hostages. Among those held and thought to still be alive are five Americans. Israel’s response has killed thousands of Palestinians and created a humanitarian crisis in Gaza.”

She then pressed President Biden on his strategy, asking, “President Biden, you’ve put forward a proposal to resolve this conflict, but so far, Hamas has not released the remaining hostages, and Israel is continuing its military offensive in Gaza. So what additional leverage will you use to get Hamas and Israel to end the war?”

In response to Bash’s query on his proposal to resolve the conflict, President Biden outlined a three-stage plan for peace.

“Everyone from the United Nations Security Council straight through the G7 to the Israelis and Netanyahu himself have endorsed the plan I put forward, which has three stages to it. The first stage is to trade the hostages for a ceasefire. The second phase is a ceasefire with additional conditions. The third phase is now the end of the war.”

President Biden emphasized that the only party resisting peace efforts is Hamas.

He asserted, “We’re still pushing hard to get them to accept. In the meantime, we’re providing Israel with all the weapons they need and when they need them.”

President Biden underscored U.S. support for Israel, stating, “We are the biggest producer of support for Israel of anyone in the world. We continue to send our experts and our intelligence people as to how they can get Hamas like we did Bin Laden.”

President Biden’s ‘red line’ policy on Israeli actions in Gaza

According to data from the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), 69 percent of Israel’s arms imports in 2023 came from American manufacturers, while 30 percent were sourced from Germany.

The U.S. provides $3.8 billion in annual military assistance to Israel, and in April, President Biden signed a law granting Israel an additional $17 billion in aid amid the ongoing conflict in Gaza.

However, in May, Washington confirmed it had held up a shipment of 1,800 bombs weighing 900kg (2,000 pounds) and 1,700 bombs weighing 226kg (500 pounds) to the Israeli military.

This decision was due to concerns about civilian casualties in Rafah, southern Gaza.

In April, President Biden issued a warning that the U.S. would reconsider its support for Israel’s military operations in Gaza if Israel were to attack Rafah, labeling it a “red line.”

In an interview with CNN, President Biden reaffirmed U.S. commitment to Israel’s defense, including providing Iron Dome interceptors and other defensive weaponry.

However, he made clear, “If Israel enters Rafah, we will not supply the weapons and artillery shells used.”

Despite international criticism of Israeli strikes that have hit displaced families in tents, Biden administration officials highlighted Israel’s efforts to avoid extensive attacks on densely populated areas of Rafah.

President Biden further specified that while Israel’s actions near Rafah’s borders have caused tensions and drawn international attention, they have not yet crossed the red line by entering heavily populated zones.

However, this stance by President Biden has garnered criticism. In early June, thousands of pro-Palestine protesters surrounded the White House with a three-kilometer-long red banner inscribed with the names of Palestinians killed by Israel

Protesters wore red clothing and held signs reading, “Biden’s red line was a lie” and “Genocide is our red line,” accusing President Biden of failing to uphold his stated red line.

Since the Israeli assault on 7 October, the Palestinian Health Ministry reports that the death toll has surpassed 37,700, with over 86,300 people injured, including numerous women and children.

The USA has more than 200mil citizens, several smart & capable..
And USA cutizens chose these two geriatrics to represent them for their next POTUS?

Israel will win

Biden , Trump supports Israel.

He needs more campaign monies so he has to use American taxpayers’ monies to support wars otherwise the manufacturers of weapon companies will not donate to his campaign. The war will end when he has enough in his election coffers but the Democrats may be getting Gavin Newsome to replace him as a candidate. So hopefully this is the end of both Trump and Biden. America is full of talents, why is there only these two undesirables?

Yes, let’s condemn terrorism. It has been going on since the 1940s, and we must condemn ALL these acts of terror, together:

1948 Deir Yassin Massacre
1948 Tantura Massacre
1948 Lydda Massacre
1948 Al-Dawayima Massacre
1948 Eilabun Massacre
1953 Qibya Massacre
1956 Kafr Qasim Massacre
1967 Rafah Refugee Camp Massacre
1982 Sabra and Shatila Massacre
……and many more (too many to list).

And the philisophy or ideology that deems one race superior and another race inferior seems to be justifying all these killings.

How to have cease fire?
1) Each Hamas terrorists given $10,000 and an apartment for kidnapping civilians as hostages
2) Houthis and Hezbollahs keep firing missiles and attacking cargo ships
3) Hamas terrorists keep firing missiles during negotiations. a demonstration of coward acts .
4) Pal-ass thin people are continuing to support Hamas to rule

Does the world expect Israhell, the Zionazis, and President “Where am I?” Biden to provide humanitarian assistance to Palestinian women, children, and babies?

You’ll more likely to see pigs flying.

Just tell Pale-ass thin not to ask Israel for food and medical aid since they have chosen Hamas terrorists to rule them and to wipe out Israel.
