Cruz Slams Biden’s “Obscene” Israel Stance

Published

on

Clear Facts:

  • Sen. Ted Cruz criticizes President Biden’s call for a “pause” in Israel’s military action in Gaza.
  • The White House clarified Biden’s mention of “prisoners,” confirming he referred to hostages.
  • Israel’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson reaffirms Israel’s opposition to a pause or cease-fire.

Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has sharply rebuked President Joe Biden for what he views as an “obscene” stance on Israel.

Cruz’s critique comes in the wake of Biden’s response to a heckler in Minneapolis, where, after being interrupted during a speech, the President expressed, “I think we need a pause. A pause means give time to get the prisoners out.”

While the White House later rectified Biden’s statement, saying he meant “hostages” and not “prisoners,” Cruz did not mince words.

Taking to social media platform X, Cruz asserted, “Biden poured hundreds of millions of dollars toward Hamas, which then massacred 1,400 Israelis and dozens of Americans. Now he’s pressuring Israel to stand down so Hamas can regroup.”

Cruz’s comments also spotlighted Israel Defense Forces’ claims, pointing to an audio recording suggesting that Hamas diverts gas supplies from Gaza hospitals.

Meanwhile, Secretary of State Antony Blinken is reportedly preparing to encourage Israel to temporarily halt military operations, allowing aid to reach Gaza and the safe exit of hostages.

However, the Biden administration has been meticulously differentiating a “pause” from a “cease-fire.”

John Kirby, the U.S. National Security Council spokesperson, attempted to delineate the terms last week, acknowledging that multiple pauses could be essential.

Kirby declared, “If that’s what it requires, then we absolutely will try to get such pause or pauses in place.”

Reiterating Israel’s firm position, Lior Haiat, the nation’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson, emphasized, “Israel is opposed to a humanitarian pause or cease-fire at this time.”

    No pause, no ceasefire, support Israel until they wipe Hamas and every other terrorist organization out.
    Tolerance of even finite terrorist activity should end. For Christs sake (no pun intended) let the Jewish people enjoy their lives.
    College students demonstrating on college campus in support of Hamas should be expelled

        President Trump would never let this happen. You do remember that five Presidents said let’s move the Embassy to Jerusalem. President Trump finally did it. President Trump might not have been the best president we have had. But he’s a lot better than the poor absent minded fool we have now. This poor man has dementia. And the cackling Vice President is now t much better. Remember she only got 3% of bites when she ran in primary elections ?

    So Biden should unnecessarily encourage the Israeli’s, who are going to do what they have to do in any case, and be labeled as a genocidal hypocrite along with the rest of Americans. In truth nothing has changed since he made the statement and the US can continue to claim not to be genocidal.

    How does one deal with people (Hamas) who are genocidal? Be afraid of anyone who thinks they are guaranteed a place in heaven for killing somebody else or dying in the attempt.

    I am afraid of anyone who thinks the everything a particular person does is a good thing or anyone who thinks the everything a particular person does is a bad thing.

    Biden already made Israel pause after the massacre on Oct 7. Plus Hamas is acknowledging that their goal continues to be to destroy Israel.

    Guess Israel will do this alone. Jews are used to that.

    I wish Israel would wipe Hamas and every other evil, killing, organization that surrounds them, off the face of the Earth. There can be no compromise with the Devil and he is in charge of the Muslims. The real God would not encourage parents to teach their kids to kill and hate and rejoice when they succeed and die. This is pure evil and I pray that Muslims will someday open their hearts to the real God and not the Devil who created them.

    Biden is just carrying out Obamas hatred for the Jewish people. Obama is a Muslim no what he says, and Joe Biden should never be allowed to enter another Christian Church, for he speaks with the forked tongue of Satan.

    Every President thinks they are a military strategist. Truman Korean War, Johnson Vietnam war, Bush, Obama and Biden Afghanistan. Even Iraq, it was Bush and Obama. Then, of course, the Generals who were politicians instead of Military Leaders.Now Biden/Obama are trying to control this war in Palestine.

    No “pause”, no “ceasefire “. Only eradication of the subhuman scum that is hamas,and other terrorist groups like them. Why does the entire world have to suffer from this? It does and can be done….but not by the cowards of government.
