Joe Biden announces $100 million in humanitarian aid for the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and Gaza Strip
But Biden warned, “Let me be clear: If Hamas diverts or steals the assistance, it will have demonstrated once again it has no regard for the welfare of the Palestinian people and it will end.”

Joe Biden was barely through with telling Israel that we stand with them when he announced that he would be handing a check for $100 million US taxpayer dollars to the Palestinians. If Hamas steals the money - shame on them!  It had to be done. The Arabs aren't giving the Palestinians much of anything. Hopefully it gets to the wonderful Palestinians as aide, otherwise Joe just bought Hamas a fresh arsenal of weapons.

So, after hugging Benjamin Netanyahu, meeting a few victims, taking a nap and writing a check for $100 million, Biden warns the Israelis not to make the mistake that George W Bush did in Iraq:

“You can’t look at what has happened here to your mothers, your fathers, your grandparents, sons, daughters, children, even babies and not scream out for justice. Justice must be done,” Biden said.

“But I caution this: While you feel that rage, don’t be consumed by it. After 9/11, we were enraged in the United States. While we sought justice and got justice, we also made mistakes.”

Joe Biden voted for the Iraq war. His message seems to be don't be stupid like I was.

Maybe a better suggestion would have been don't leave a massive arsenal of weapons behind like Joe did in Afghanistan.

Joe was nice enough to mention that the US Defense department confirmed that it was an Islamist terrorist rocket that hit the hospital the other day.

He never mentioned Iran.

Critics were quick to respond:

“Just days ago, Hamas stole humanitarian aid — including fuel and medical supplies — from the UN,” said Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.). “We should not be sending American taxpayer dollars to support terrorists that are currently holding Americans hostage, and we should never place conditions on our support for Israel.” 

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who is seeking the Republican presidential nomination,  tweeted : “No U.S. tax dollars to the Gaza Strip. Hamas is holding American hostages and Biden wants to fund them? I challenge every Republican running to step up to the plate and oppose Biden’s $100 million gift to Hamas.”

In the interview, Biden said that while Hamas needs to be neutralized, the group does not "represent all the Palestinian people.

Biden says Hamas must be eliminated entirely, but 'there must be a path to a Palestinian state' (msn.com)


Does Joe Biden or his handlers know that the Palestinians voted for Hamas?

Here is a Poll from 2021:

JERUSALEM (AP) — A new poll released Tuesday finds a dramatic surge in Palestinian support for Hamas following last month’s Gaza war, with around three quarters viewing the Islamic militants as victors in a battle against Israel to defend Jerusalem and its holy sites.

The scientific poll by the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research also found plummeting support for President Mahmoud Abbas, who was sidelined by the war but is seen internationally as a partner for reviving the long-defunct peace process.

The poll found that 53% of Palestinians believe Hamas is “most deserving of representing and leading the Palestinian people,” while only 14% prefer Abbas’ secular Fatah party.

It shouldn't start in the first place.  

Where you getting the money Joey?  A week or so ago the government almost shut down because a lack of money due to uncontrolled spending.  Now you suddenly find this?

You mean Biden might have been better off canceling his $6 billion ransom payment to Iran, stop all funds finding their way to Gaza, cease being snubbed and humiliated by Arab leaders, remain in Delaware and let Israel deal with Hamas?

I think you have something there.

If reports have been correct, the money he's giving Hamas ... oops ... I mean Palestinian civilian "relief" ... was pre-allocated by Congress, so that's why he doesn't need their approval now. It still sounds pretty shady to me.

Is anyone embarrassed that this dumb ass reading note cards is sitting with a real leader while referring to terrorists as "the other team?"

Make no mistake.

There are plenty of better places to be spending that money on Americans here in the US.   Shotgun Joe’s puppet masters know that so ask yourself one question.

If we are going to spend it, why aren’t we spending it here?

The unbiased press is reporting the Biden will seek $100 billion (with a 'b') aid for Ukraine, Israel, and Palestine.  None of this penny anti million stuff.

Now the political left will be asking 'What would Muslim Jesus do?'  Have pity on the poor terrorists, they know not what they do.
