Netanyahu promises Israel will fight back as Biden calls for de-escalation

As rockets continue to pour down on Israel, U.S. President Joe Biden has called for the Middle Eastern nation to move toward “significant de-escalation.”

But as Fox News reports, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has made clear that Israel will continue to defend itself.

“Path to a ceasefire”

Fox revealed in its report that Biden spoke with Netanyahu directly on Wednesday.

The two statesmen are said to have “had a detailed discussion of the state of events in Gaza, Israel’s progress in degrading the capabilities of Hamas and other terrorist elements, and ongoing diplomatic efforts by regional governments and the United States,” as Fox reported.

The network went on to report that Biden “conveyed to the Prime Minister that he expected a significant de-escalation today on the path to a ceasefire.”

“Continue this operation”

Netanyahu later told reporters that although he “greatly appreciates the support of the American president,” his government is “determined to continue this operation until its aim is met.”

An estimated 3,000 rockets have been launched at Israel over the past 10 days from Gaza, a territory controlled by the terrorist group Hamas.

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken has said “fundamental differences” exist “between a terrorist organization, Hamas, that is indiscriminately raining down rockets — in fact, targeting civilians — and Israel’s response defending itself, that is targeting the terrorists,” as Fox notes.

A nation divided

However, Israel and its national defense have become divisive issues within the Democratic Party, with some of the party’s most high-profile figures siding with Palestine.

In a tweet last week, New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D) denied that Israel is a democracy, characterizing it instead as an “apartheid” state.

Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D) released a similar message slamming Netanyahu as the “apartheid-in-chief” and alleging that he “commits war crimes and openly violates international law.”

According to Fox, President Biden “lavishly complimented” Tlaib at a speech in her home state earlier this week. “I want to say to you that I admire your intellect, I admire your passion, and I admire your concern for so many other people. And it’s from my heart,” Biden reportedly said of the congresswoman. “I pray that your grandma and family are well, I promise to do everything you see that they are in the West Bank.”

  4. Tlaib is a terrorist sympathizer and needs to removed from congress as soon as possible. she has voided her constitutional oath and no longer should be allowed entry to Congress.

    1. I would care less if Rashida Tlaib caught a terminal case of coronavirus. Or got run over by a drunk/drugged driver. Israel knows how to take care of its business and will ignore biden if they have to…

  5. Biden, commonly known as POTUSINO, won’t do anything for our ally Israel because only 3000 Rockets were lobbed in. If it were 3001, OK, let’s get em’. One Rocket shot only should suffice for full support of our Peaceful Friends of Israel.
    Once again, Babies suffer for something that could be handled at the Table.

  6. Israel has a right to protect itself. AOC needs to go live in Palestine and take the rest of the anti-Semitic people with her. She does not like this country and needs to be removed from any kind of power. She is stupid and completely irresponsible protecting criminals and gangs. She has no honor, morals or values. Ugly, racist and evil and her image gets worse every day. She will never succeed in her coup to take out Pelosi or Schumer.

  7. Why does Joe jump on our friend Israel to cut down the problem of fighting when it started and goes from the Palestinian people in Israel’s sovereign nation with Hamas a listed terrorist organization. Especially no problem until Joe dumped big bucks to Iran and the Palestinians to give them the materials they need to keep the rockets shooting into Israel and Israel is only defending themselves.
