On Thursday, an Israeli dignitary criticized the Biden administration for trying to halt Israel’s offensive against Hamas for humanitarian reasons.
After a heckler demanding a cease-fire in Gaza disrupted President Joe Biden’s fundraising speech in Minnesota on Wednesday, the latter declared his support for a “pause” to “allow time to get the detainees out.”
After the extreme Islamic terrorist group Hamas conducted a horrific attack on numerous locations in southern Israel on October 7 that resulted in the deaths of about 1,400 people, Israel has been conducting military operations against Hamas.
Knesset member and Israel’s former ambassador to the United Nations, Danny Danon, has stated that he doesn’t understand why we’re discussing a ceasefire or halt. Danon deftly pointed out that Israel had a ceasefire with Hamas until October 7. Then they attacked without provocation, slaughtering kids, raping girls, and kidnapping over 240 innocent Israelis. Danon said that’s why they shouldn’t be rewarded. There will be no truces or pauses.
“It’s up to them if they choose to surrender and free our captives,” Danon said. Danon said waiting would give the enemy time to reorganize, lay ambushes for troops, and plot their next move.
Almost immediately after Israel’s reaction to the terrorist attacks began, Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and other left-wing members of the House known as “The Squad” published remarks asking for a ceasefire.
Danon said Israel’s priority is the swift destruction of Hamas and the safe return of all hostages.
Former UK and Australian prime ministers Boris Johnson and Scott Morrison arrived in Israel, saying they were there to demonstrate solidarity with the Netanyahu government amid its war with the Palestinian militant group Hamas.
Danny Danon was there to receive the ex-prime ministers when they landed at Ben Gurion airport early on Sunday morning.
According to Danon, the two are “genuine lovers of Israel” who want to meet with Israeli soldiers while touring communities in the country’s southern region.
