Joe Biden Supports Israeli Ceasefire After Pressure from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Left

President Joe Biden expressed his desire for an Israeli ceasefire of operations against Hamas, after a growing force of leftist Democrats criticized his support of Israel.

Biden spoke with Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu Monday afternoon, walking back his support for Israel’s aggressive response in Palestine to Hamas rocket attacks. The Israeli military response against Hamas continued for a second week on Monday.

“The President expressed his support for a ceasefire,” the White House related in a readout of the call with Netanyahu on Monday.

That was a change from Biden’s call on Saturday, in which the White House noted Biden “shared his grave concern about the intercommunal violence across Israel” but made no mention of his support for a ceasefire.

On Monday, the Biden administration struggled with their position on the conflict, as White House press secretary Jen Psaki fielded multiple questions about the punishing military operations in Israel against Hamas during the daily press briefing. One journalist even asked if Biden believed there were “war crimes” committed by Israel.

“Our approach is to quiet, intensive diplomacy, and that’s where we feel we can be most effective,” Psaki said repeatedly.

Biden spoke to Netanyahu on Monday afternoon as a growing number of Democrat lawmakers criticized Israel for their attacks against Hamas, some even demanding the Biden administration publicly criticize Israel.

Sen. Jon Ossoff (D-GA), who is Jewish, spearheaded a letter from 28 Senators demanding a ceasefire in the conflict, “to prevent any further loss of civilian life and to prevent further escalation of conflict.”

On social media, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) called for Biden to demonstrate “outrage” that Israel attacked Hamas during Ramadan.

“Where’s the outrage @POTUS?” she wrote.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) voiced solidarity with the Palestinians.

“It is inhumane and the US must show leadership in safeguarding the human rights of Palestinians,” she wrote.

The Holy month of Ramadan has begun in Afghanistan, and it will also be a month of waiting.

It began on April 13th and this year it is filled with a sense of urgency and anticipation as to whether the United States will withdraw from Afghanistan and fulfill its commitments.

According to MSM reports Biden has realized that there is neither a military nor a political solution to Afghanistan’s issues, or rather that they can’t be solved through outside intervention.

To MSM’s shock, this withdrawal will not happen by the pre-agreed date of May 1st, 2021, but rather prior to the 20th anniversary of September 11th. Other NATO troops in the country will follow suit with the same timeline. Britain will withdraw nearly all its troops from Afghanistan along with Washington’s forces.

It is unknown how the Taliban will accept this, as there have been warnings that attacks on US and NATO personnel and positions would be renewed if the May 1st deadline isn’t honored.

In reality, the fighting in Afghanistan is nowhere near finished, and has not subsided. Afghan Security forces frequently clash with the Taliban, and attack their positions and vice versa.

Overall, after the signing of the Doha agreement, the number of Taliban attacks in Afghanistan increased by 24%. This, of course, was announced by the Afghan authorities.

On April 12th, Taliban reports said that in clashes throughout the country, at least 54 Afghan security forces were killed and 13 injured.

At least 23 Afghan security forces were killed in Taliban attacks on the first day of Ramadan.

Afghan Security forces reportedly killed 91 Taliban and injured 43 more, in “reciprocation” operations on the same day.

Clashes continue despite President Ashraf Ghani and the head of the Supreme Council for National Reconciliation, Abdullah Abdullah calling for peace during the celebration of the holy month.

There is a complete standstill, both in terms of fighting and in negotiations. The Taliban said that they would not attend any conference or political forum aimed at normalization until all foreign troops leave the country.

This mostly relates to the recent announcement of an Afghanistan peace conference to be held in Turkey, between April 24th and May 4th. The Taliban completely rejected attending it if the United States doesn’t fulfill its commitments.

In a statement the group said that any peace would only be possible as an internal solution between Afghanistan’s own parties and that ambiguous and unclear statements benefited nobody and contributed to peace least of all.
