Netanyahu is hurting Israel more than helping – Biden

At the same time, the US president has insisted that he has no red lines when it comes to supporting Israel

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is doing Israel more harm than good by ignoring civilian casualties in Gaza amid the ongoing war with Hamas, but that does not mean Washington will stop supporting the Jewish state, US President Joe Biden said.

According to Gaza’s health ministry, at least 30,960 people have been killed and 72,524 injured since the IDF launched attacks on the Palestinian enclave on October 7 in response to a surprise Hamas attack on Israel that left more than 1,100 dead. and 240 others were taken hostage.

During an interview with MSNBC on Saturday, Biden again criticized the Israeli prime minister for the way his country’s military is conducting its operation in Gaza.

“He has the right to defend Israel, the right to continue to persecute Hamas, but he must… pay more attention to the innocent lives that are lost as a result of the actions taken,” emphasized the US president.

By not doing so, Netanyahu is “It hurts Israel more than it helps Israel… It goes against what Israel stands for.” I think it’s a big mistake, so I want to see a truce,” he said.

The ceasefire between Israel and Hamas is expected to last for six weeks and “main, important” prisoner exchange, Biden said, adding that “nothing should happen” regarding fighting during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, which begins Sunday.

Earlier this week, Netanyahu reiterated that growing international pressure for a cease-fire in Gaza would not make Israel abandon its goal of fighting Hamas until “Total Victory in the War” it is achieved.

The president was asked to clarify a comment that caught fire on Thursday after he delivered his State of the Union address that he would have “come to jesus” to talk to Netanyahu about his resolution of the conflict.

“It’s an expression used in the southern part of my state, meaning a serious meeting,” he explained.

Netanyahu “We cannot leave 30,000 dead Palestinians” but “Israel’s defense is still critical.” [for the US]so there is no red line [where] I will cut off all the weapons so they don’t have the Iron Dome to protect them,” Biden said, referring to Israel’s missile defense system. “I will never leave Israel,” he assured.
