(RightIsRight.com) – In a bizarre move considering Joe Biden’s failure to aid Americans in embattled Israel, the president has privately told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to protect Palestinian civilians as Israel prepares to launch a ground operation to destroy the Hamas terrorist group.
Over 1,300 civilians, including upwards of 30 US citizens, were butchered in the recent Hamas terrorist attack on Southern Israel from the Gaza Strip.
Meanwhile, many Americans have been stranded in the country, unable to leave, as the Biden administration has failed to organize evacuation flights, unlike other countries such as Poland and Mexico.
While Israel’s military has already killed off about 1,500 Hamas terrorists, it is preparing to storm the Gaza Strip, a tiny enclave with 2.2 million inhabitants, to wipe out the Islamist group’s entire infrastructure.
During a private discussion with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu amidst the conflict with Hamas terrorists in the Gaza Strip, President Joe Biden emphasized the importance of minimizing civilian casualties, two Biden administration sources and a former official told NBC News.
Officials said Biden’s request for Netanyahu stemmed from the White House’s awareness and anticipation of potential backlash should Israel be perceived as exerting “excessive force” upon civilians – particularly women and children – not participating in the conflict.
Moreover, the Biden administration, in collaboration with other nations, is orchestrating an escape plan for citizens of Gaza who might find themselves caught in the hostilities between Hamas and Israel, the NBC sources reveal.
Reportedly, the contemplated strategy entails facilitating a safe passage for Palestinian civilians and Americans in Gaza through a southern corridor leading toward Egypt.
A White House release revealed on Tuesday that a conversation between Biden and Netanyahu revolved around assurances from the US President regarding continued support for Israel.
The same day, President Biden addressed the conflict during his first public appearance since Saturday’s attack, affirming that Israel possesses the “right to respond” to “vicious attacks.”
In a 10-minute address, he announced the US had sent the USS Gerald R. Ford Carrier Strike Group to Israel’s shores.
“And we stand ready to move in additional assets as needed. Let me say again — to any country, any organization, anyone thinking of taking advantage of this situation, I have one word: Don’t. Don’t. Our hearts may be broken, but our resolve is clear,” Biden said.
