UN throws Biden a lifeline on Gaza ceasefire

Once again, the United Nations is sticking its globalist nose where it doesn’t belong, voting to approve President Biden’s Gaza ceasefire plan that is not publicly supported by Israel or even Hamas for that matter.

The United Nations Security Council on Monday voted its approval of trading hostages for a ceasefire. Considering very few of the hostages are probably still alive, that means they would trade mostly dead bodies for a ceasefire. The globalist body is claiming that Israel has accepted the three-phase plan “without delay and without condition.” Not exactly.

Fourteen council member nations voted in favor of the ceasefire while Russia abstained, according to the Daily Mail.

“The first phase of the resolution calls for Hamas to release Israeli hostages in exchange for Palestinian prisoners held in Israel jails and Israeli forces leaving certain populated areas of Gaza,” the Daily Mail noted.

“The vote came as Secretary of State Antony Blinken was traveling to the region Monday, meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem amid ceasefire negotiations,” the media outlet continued.

“Netanyahu has said that Biden presented only parts of the proposal and insisted that any talk of a permanent ceasefire before dismantling Hamas’ military and governing capabilities is a nonstarter,” the Daily Mail wrote which highlights the apparent fact that Israel is not giving blanket approval to the ceasefire as the UN claims after all.

Not only is Netanyahu asserting that Biden and the UN are playing dirty pool when it comes to the ceasefire, the far-right faction in the Israeli parliament has vowed to collapse the government if the deal goes through and Israeli forces are withdrawn from Gaza.

“With no firm public response yet from Hamas or Israel to the proposal they received 10 days ago, Blinken started his eighth visit to the region since the conflict began in October by meeting with President Abdel Fattah el-Sissi of Egypt, a key mediator with the militant Hamas group,” the Daily Mail stated. “Blinken once again called on Hamas to accept the plan, which he said has wide international support.”

“If you want a ceasefire, press Hamas to say ‘yes,’ he told reporters before leaving Cairo on the trip that will take him to Israel, Jordan and Qatar,” the media outlet recounted.

Despite Blinken claiming that Netanyahu has accepted the proposal, the Israeli prime minister has not publicly said he has done so.

“I know that there are those who are pessimistic about the prospects,” Blinken remarked. “That’s understandable. Hamas continues to show extraordinary cynicism in its actions, a disinterest not only in the well-being and security of Israelis but also Palestinians.”

Blinken is adamant this is the best option but Israel and Hamas are not convinced it would seem. Hamas’ silence is typical. To have a ceasefire you have to have both sides agree and Hamas is loath to do so.

“It would be very good if Israel put forward its own ideas on this, and I’ll be talking to the government about that,” Blinken insisted. “But one way or another, we’ve got to have these plans, we’ve got to have them in place, we’ve got to be ready to go if we want to take advantage of a ceasefire.”

What he didn’t say is it’s important for Biden’s re-election chances and the United Nations just threw the president a lifeline.

“The three-phase ceasefire plan calls for the release of more hostages and a temporary pause in hostilities that will last as long as it takes to negotiate the second phase, which aims to bring the release of all hostages, a ‘full withdrawal of Israeli forces from Gaza’ and ‘a permanent end to hostilities,’ according to an American-drafted resolution put before the U.N. Security Council,” the Daily Mail reported. “The third phase calls for reconstruction in Gaza.”
