Read Ed Morrissey’s article for details of the IDF’s invasion of Gaza, and its encirclement of Hamas’s main stronghold, Gaza City.
Just as the IDF is ready to begin rooting Hamas out of their terrorist snakepits, Biden declares that it’s time for “humanitarian pauses” to permit Hamas terrorists to escape.
I mean, to “get hostages out” and bring in food for the poor Hamas-supporting Palestinians.
Remember what we all said about Biden pretending to take Israel’s side in public so that he could restrain them privately? They even leaked to Axios that that was exactly what they were doing, to reassure their pro-terrorist left that they weren’t really trying to protect those awful New York Money Men from genocide.
Well, now Biden has even given up on supporting Israel publicly (though insincerely).
Now he just wants to protect those peace-lovin’ Palestinians.
The IDF is deep in the unholy country of the enemy, and just had to fight off surprise attack from terrorists coming out of their tunnels.
In other words, the IDF finds itself in a precarious position thanks to its rapid success [that is, its rapid movement across Gaza[, one that isn’t sustainable in stasis. Which is why, of course, that Joe Biden picked this moment in time to tell Israel to stop its operations so it can negotiate with the terrorist army that insists it will settle for nothing less than Israel’s complete annihilation. Take it away, NYT:
Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken will urge the Israeli government to agree to a series of brief cessations of military operations in Gaza to allow for hostages to be released safely and for humanitarian aid to be distributed, White House officials said on Thursday.The message comes as President Biden revealed on Wednesday that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel had previously agreed to halt shelling briefly on Oct. 20 to allow for the release of two Americans, Judith Raanan, 59, and her daughter, Natalie Raanan, 17.
Mr. Blinken will push for more of what American officials call “humanitarian pauses” in the war when he arrives in Israel on Friday for another round of diplomacy amid fierce fighting between Israeli forces and Hamas, the group that controls Gaza.
Hamas’s — and all Muslim terrorists’ — strategy has always been to launch cowardly terrorist sneak-attacks and then call in the defense. They have no actual defense — except the big one: leftwing media and leftwing governments, who will demand that Israel make no reprisals against the people slaughtering them.
Leftwing media and leftwing governments are Hamas’ air forces.
Now, Hamas’s promise to stage millions — yes, millions — of 10/7 slaughters until Israel has been “annihilated” presents some problems for Hamas’s media and governmental air forces.

It is difficult to claim that you want a ceasefire just to give the parties a chance to work things out by treaty when one side has declared it will continue launching terrorist butchery and rape operations until the end of time or the end of the Jewish people, whichever comes first.
So how did the left react to Hamas’s declaration that everything their western supporters were saying about ceasefires and peaceful negotiations were terrorist propaganda and murderous lies?
Oh, the normal way — they just refused to report it. They can’t have the public knowing that Hamas has already announced that it doesn’t matter what Israel does, they will proceed with genocidal terrorist attacks until every Jew is dead.
So they just straight-up refused to report this.
