(TheProudRepublci.com) – In a shocking new case of Joe Biden working against the United States and its allies, the administration is now catering to the interests of Palestinian terrorists while putting at risk hundreds of Israeli and American hostages abducted by them.
Biden and his Secretary of State Antony, Blinken, are intensifying efforts to persuade Israel to restore the supplies of water, electricity, and food to the Gaza Strip, a crowded tiny enclave of 2.2 million people.
Israel cut off the supplies after, on October 7, the Hamas terrorist group invaded it from Gaza, slaughtered over 1,300 people, including 27 Americans, and kidnapped 199 hostages.
“We have a long history of dealing with this and sieges work,” an Israeli government source told Newsmax.
The source further explained that withholding essentials like water and electricity is currently Israel’s primary bargaining tool against Hamas, while restoring the supplies would inadvertently strengthen Hamas’s position.
Echoing this sentiment, Israel Katz, Israel’s energy minister, stated last week that Gaza would receive “no electrical switch,” “no water hydrant,” and “no fuel truck” unless the abducted individuals were safely returned.
While President Biden has consistently maintained that Israel holds the right to defend itself against Hamas, speculation is that his administration seeks to appease far-left Democrats by advocating for humanitarian aid to Gaza, even if it jeopardizes the hostages.
At least 20 of the hostages kidnapped by Hamas are citizens of the United States, according to reports.
Upon landing in Israel this Monday, Secretary Blinken has primarily focused on urging Israel to allow humanitarian support into Gaza.
The report notes that the strategy of a blockade, adopted by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, garners broad bipartisan support within Israel.
“We are all in this together. We are all enlisting. This is not a political partnership, but rather a unity of fate. This is the time to close ranks and to win,” declared opposition leader Benny Gantz as he recently formed a unity government with Netanyahu.
Last Friday, the Congressional Progressive Caucus sent a letter to Biden and Blinken, encouraging them to champion the establishment of a humanitarian corridor into Gaza.
They also argued there would be substantial humanitarian repercussions if a large number of civilians were evacuated from northern Gaza, as Israel has demanded as it prepares to launch an anti-terrorist ground operation there.
