US President Joe Biden’s Caution to Israel Amidst Hamas Attacks

Published on

US President Joe Biden delivered a stark message to Israel on Wednesday, warning against repeating the mistakes made by the United States during the 9/11 attacks. The recent assault by Hamas on Israel has been likened to Israel’s own “9/11 moment,” while Hamas has referred to it as the “Al Aqsa Flood.”

Biden’s words resonated with many Americans, drawing parallels between the October 7th attack by Hamas on Israel and the tragic events of September 11, 2001, when nearly 3,000 lives were lost. He urged Israel not to be consumed by rage but to seek justice while avoiding the errors made in the aftermath of 9/11.

During President Biden’s visit to Israel, an explosion at a Gaza Strip hospital claimed the lives of hundreds, triggering conflicting claims of responsibility. Hamas attributed it to an Israeli airstrike, while Israel contested this, presenting evidence suggesting a missile misfire by the Islamic Jihad, another militant group operating in Gaza. The Islamic Jihad, however, dismissed this claim.

Biden, after consulting Pentagon data, suggested that the incident was unlikely to be an Israeli military strike. He acknowledged the uncertainty surrounding the cause of the blast, which sparked protests across the Middle East.

Israel has now agreed to permit humanitarian assistance to reach Gaza from Egypt, with an emphasis on civilian aid rather than benefiting Hamas. Biden announced an additional $100 million in humanitarian aid for Gaza and the West Bank.

The Israel-Hamas conflict, which commenced on October 7th, has become the deadliest of the five Gaza wars, resulting in significant casualties on both sides. According to the Gaza Health Ministry, 3,478 Palestinians have been killed, and over 12,000 have been injured in the past 11 days. Meanwhile, in Israel, over 1,400 people have lost their lives, and at least 199 others, including children, have been captured by Hamas and taken into Gaza.
