President Joe Biden has called for a humanitarian “pause” in the Israel-Hamas war, sparking anger from Israel’s many staunch defenders.
While appearing at a campaign event in Minneapolis this Wednesday, the president was heckled by a self-identified rabbi who demanded a ceasefire in the Israel-Hamas war.
“Mr. President, you care about Jewish people. As a rabbi, I need you to call for a cease-fire right now,” the rabbi, a woman, said, prompting booing and hissing from the crowd.

According to St. Paul station KSTP, the president responded by saying, “I think we need a pause. A pause means time to get the prisoners out.”
Then, as the rabbi was being escorted out of the room, she reportedly started singing “ceasefire now,” which in turn inspired a few more words from the president.
“I understand the emotion. This is incredibly complicated for the Israelis. It’s incredibly complicated for the Muslim world as well, and I supported a two-state solution. I have from the very beginning. The fact of the matter is that Hamas is a terrorist organization. A flat-out terrorist organization,” he reportedly said.
As his remarks later went viral, they triggered a round of recriminations from Israel’s staunchest defenders, many of whom were repulsed by the idea of a ceasefire with Hamas given how many Israelis the terrorist group murdered on Oct. 7th.

@POTUS Your appeal for humanitarian pause is nothing but asking @netanyahu to give #HamasTerrorists a breather to regroup. Did you give a breather to Osama Gang when they brought down WTC towers in 2001? Why these double standards? @narendramodi @KremlinRussia_E @10DowningStreet

I can’t be “silent” on this:
No pause in Gaza. Screw that- they will regroup and come back even harder. They have no decency-no moral compass- nothing(just them- love other Muslims).
Listen you can be Chamberlain @POTUS if you want? Look at how that turned out. Appeaser……

@POTUS Really? A pause?
We have had a pause in Afghanistan and still can’t get our people out.
When you fight terrorists, there is no pause, no quarter, no mercy. Period.
Thank God for past leaders who knew how to fight terrorists.
Please go away.

Meanwhile, as the president has been publicly calling for a “pause,” privately he’s been warning Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that his time in office may be short-lived because of the Oct. 7th terror attack that occurred under his watch.
“A current U.S. official and a former U.S. official both confirmed that the administration believes Netanyahu has limited time left in office,” Politico reported Wednesday.
“The current official said the expectation internally was that the Israeli PM would likely last a matter of months, or at least until the early fighting phase of Israel’s military campaign in the Gaza Strip was over, though all four officials noted the sheer unpredictability of Israeli politics,” according to Politico.
“There’s going to have to be a reckoning within Israeli society about what happened,” the current official said in their own words. “Ultimately, the buck stops on the prime minister’s desk.”
Politico’s report further noted that when the president traveled to Tel Aviv late last month to show support, he at the time “urged Netanyahu to proceed cautiously and not widen the war.”
He also “pushed the prime minister to prioritize a two-state solution and be mindful of the steps beyond an effort to decapitate Hamas, including the challenges of any sort of future occupation of Gaza.”
All this comes amid a Wednesday report from Bloomberg revealing that the Biden administration is considering stationing troops in Gaza if and when Israel successfully eliminates Hamas.

This idea specifically centers on leaving what Bloomberg calls a “multinational force that may involve American troops” in Gaza.
According to sources who spoke with Bloomberg, the idea is one of several that have been proposed for the future of the region.
“A second option would establish a peacekeeping force modeled on one that oversees a 1979 Egypt-Israel peace treaty, while a third would see Gaza put under temporary United Nations oversight,” Bloomberg reported.
