Senator Ted Cruz, a Republican from Texas, criticized President Biden for his “obscene” gesture of urging a humanitarian “pause” amid the Israel-Hamas conflict, in which the IDF is waging a ground assault on the Gaza Strip.
Cruz, a senator and part of the Senate Foreign Relations Panel, said that the president “dumped hundreds of millions of dollars into Hamas, which then killed 1,400 Israelis as well as dozens of Americans.”
He said Biden is “putting pressure on Israel to back off so Hamas can get back together.”
“He’s even telling Israel that they need to send additional fuel to the people of the Gaza Strip, which Hamas will take and use against Israel,” he said.
Following President Biden calling for a humanitarian “pause” in the war between Israel and Hamas while talking to fans in Minneapolis about why he ran for president, the subject has come up.
When a woman spoke up and called for a cease-fire, Biden told her he knew how she felt and made it clear that his call for a break in the fighting meant “time for getting the prisoners out.”
A later statement from the White House made it clear that the president’s request for a “pause” was made for humanitarian reasons.
The president is “under more and more pressure from human rights groups, other world leaders, and even liberal Democrats in his own party. These people say that Israel’s attacks on Gaza are punishment for everyone and that the fighting needs to stop,” according to the Associated Press.
“In his remarks, Biden was putting the pressure on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to provide the Palestinians at least a short respite from the unrelenting military assault that’s leaving thousands dead and trapped the 141-square-mile strip under a roiling humanitarian disaster.”
In October, a top politician in the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas informed Lebanese TV that the group plans to conduct additional versions of the October 7 terrorist attack, which was the worst terrorist attack in the entire history of the Jewish state, up until Israel was destroyed.
At the massacre, about 2,500 terrorists came into Israel by land, sea, and air and shot and killed people at a music event outside. Others went door-to-door in nearby towns looking for Jewish men, women, and children, whom they then tortured, raped, killed, set on fire, and kidnapped.
More than 1,400 people were killed in the terrorist assault in the Jewish state, over 5,300 were hurt, and at least 240 people of all ages had been taken hostage.
The great majority of the deaths are civilians, and dozens of them are American citizens.
Cruz said in October that the Biden administration had “in an incredibly real and concrete manner” helped pay for Hamas’s horrible terrorist attack in Israel.
He also said that President Biden had made Iran a bigger danger to the US and the rest of the world. He called for ending all the money that the present administration was “pouring into Gaza” and for everyone to “stand unquestionably with Israel.”
