Netanyahu Fires Back at Biden

( – In some much-deserved schooling of Joe Biden, Israel’s conservative leader Benjamin Netanyahu has blasted and disproved the president for claiming that the former was pursuing policies against Israeli interests by continuing to hammer the Palestinian Islamist terror group Hamas in the Gaza Strip.

During an interview conducted on Sunday with pro-left news outlet Politico, the Israeli Prime Minister robustly responded to President Biden’s insinuation that Netanyahu’s policies were detrimentally affecting Israel.

“I don’t know exactly what the president meant, but if he meant by that that I’m pursuing private policies against the majority, the wish of the majority of Israelis, and that this is hurting the interests of Israel, then he’s wrong on both counts,” Netanyahu declared.

Netanyahu voiced his belief that a significant portion of the Israeli population supports the military campaign in Gaza aimed at dismantling Hamas—a group recognized by the U.S. as a terrorist organization that exercises control over the Gaza Strip.

This organization was responsible for the sadistic deaths of 1,500 Israelis and the abduction of approximately 250 individuals in the October 7 terrorist attack against the Jewish State.

Netanyahu has spearheaded an initiative in Gaza to eliminate Hamas and free the hostages, a campaign that resulted in the deaths of over 30,000 Palestinian Arabs, as per the claims of the Hamas-led health ministry in Gaza.

“These are not my private policies only. They’re policies supported by the overwhelming majority of the Israelis. They support the action that we’re taking to destroy the remaining terrorist battalions of Hamas,” Netanyahu affirmed.

“The majority of Israelis understand that if we don’t do this, what we’ll have is a repetition of the October 7th massacre, which is bad for Israel, bad for the Palestinians, bad for the future of peace in the Middle East,” he elaborated.

Amid escalating global demands for a ceasefire, Biden intensified his critique of the ongoing operations in Gaza.
He cautioned against the potential harm to Israel’s global standing if further measures are not taken to facilitate humanitarian aid and minimize civilian casualties.

At the same time, Biden reaffirmed his unwavering support for Israel despite the mounting external pressures.
“What’s happening is he has a right to defend Israel, a right to continue to pursue Hamas,” Biden stated in an interview with MSNBC’s Jonathan Capehart on Saturday.

“But he must, he must, he must pay more attention to the innocent lives being lost as a consequence of the actions taken. In my view, he’s hurting Israel more than helping Israel,” the president remarked.
