President Joe Biden is facing mounting criticism over his perceived role in the recent devastating attack on Israel, as Hamas launched an unprecedented multi-front assault on the country over the weekend.
Canadian journalist Daniel Boardman highlighted the link between Biden's decision to release funds to Iran and the subsequent attack, as Breitbart News' John Nolte noted in his report.
"Now Hamas, one of the terrorist proxies they brag openly about funding, is launching a sophisticated and expensive attack on Israel. Foreign Policy matters," Boardman wrote.
Bryan E. Leib, executive director of CASEPAC (Combating Antisemitism Everywhere), expressed similar concerns, stating that "the carnage that's unfolding in #Israel right now is a direct result of what happens when Joe Biden emboldens Iran. #Hamas would not be able to operate if not for the $$ from Tehran."
Right-wing broadcaster Mark Levin took aim at Biden’s “appeasement of the Palestinian terrorists,” saying that the transfer of $6 billion “to the Iranian terror state, which arms these terrorists, contributed to this.”
Jake Wallis Simons, editor of the Jewish Chronicle, added, "Hamas is being funded and equipped by Tehran... which the US has been appeasing and enabling in recent months, as billions of dollars have flowed into the regime's coffers."
Republican Florida Governor and presidential candidate Ron DeSantis weighed in, suggesting a direct link between Biden's actions and the attack on Israel: "Israel is now under attack by Iranian-backed Hamas terrorists. Iran has helped fund this war against Israel, and Joe Biden's policies that have gone easy on Iran have helped fill their coffers," he said.
"The terrorist state of Iran kidnaps five Americans. Biden then chooses the anniversary of September 11, 2023, to pay the terrorist state of Iran a ransom of $6 billion," DeSantis stated.
Breitbart's Nolte further likened the situation to historical events, saying, "This would be like President Franklin D. Roosevelt handing the 1939 equivalent of $6 billion to Hitler three weeks before Hitler invaded Poland."
The situation escalated over the weekend when Hamas, the militant rulers of the Gaza Strip, carried out a multi-front attack on Israel.
Thousands of rockets were fired at Israel, while dozens of Hamas fighters infiltrated the heavily fortified border in several locations. Israel has reported at least 40 casualties.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared that Israel was "at war" and called for a mass mobilization of army reserves. The attack evoked memories of the 1973 war, nearly 50 years ago.
The situation grew even more dire as reports emerged on social media purporting to show Hamas terrorists murdering and kidnapping Israeli civilians, further intensifying the horror of the conflict.
Critics of the corporate media argue that it is already framing the situation in a manner that favors Democrats, specifically Biden, and blames Israel.
They anticipate that some media outlets may attempt to shift responsibility to former President Donald Trump, despite his administration's efforts to broker peace in the Middle East.
