It was a matter of time.
Just a couple of days after hundreds (estimates possibly a thousand) pro-Palestinian supporters tried to crash the tree lighting in NYC, we’ve learned the Biden administration is caving to radicals.
There are now leaked reports that during a private meeting with Israel’s war cabinet, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken is trying to keep Israel from continuing the war.
According to reports, Israel’s defense minister showed resolve to eliminate Hamas as a military and political force. It was reported that Blinken said, “I don’t think you have the credit for that.”
According to Ch. 12 report, Blinken clashed with Israel’s war cabinet about the next phase in the Gaza operation.
“I don’t think you have the credit for that,” Blinken reportedly told the defense minister about his stated goal to “dismantle Hamas, even if it takes months.” pic.twitter.com/qAFnJ2YvAC

So Ukraine can throw people at the Russians, but Israel isn’t allowed to protect their country.
Republican Senator Tom Cotton had a great response.
The idea that after the worst massacre of Jews since the Holocaust, Israel needs “credit” to defend itself is outrageous.
Blinken and Biden should be ashamed.
The American people stand with Israel–even if Biden does not. https://t.co/MPcJFMjrro

Prime Minister Netanyahu responded accordingly.
“I have just concluded a meeting with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, shortly after Hamas murderers murdered people here in Jerusalem. I told him that it is the same Hamas,” he said. “It is the same Hamas that perpetrated the terrible massacre on October 7th and the same Hamas that is trying to murder us everywhere. I told him: We have sworn, I have sworn, to eliminate Hamas. Nothing will stop us. We will continue this war until we achieve the three goals: Freeing all of our hostages, completely eliminating Hamas and ensuring that no threat like this will ever come from Gaza again.”
The statement was posted by one of Netanyahu’s spokespersons.
