Weak Biden Offers Apology For Doubting Hamas Propaganda
President Joe Biden reportedly apologized to several prominent Muslim-American leaders for openly questioning Hamas’ report on the Gaza death toll.
President Biden on Oct. 25 said he did not believe that Hamas was telling the truth when the terror organization reported on the death toll in Gaza since the Israel-Hamas war began in October. According to the Hamas-controlled Ministry of Health, more than 14,000 Palestinians in Gaza —mostly women and Children— have died from Israeli strikes since the war began.
“I have no notion that the Palestinians are telling the truth about how many people are killed,” Biden said. “I’m sure innocents have been killed, and it’s a price of waging war.”
President Biden later met with five prominent Muslim American leaders that same day. The Muslim leaders expressed their dissatisfaction with Biden’s comments, prompting the president to offer an apology.
“I’m sorry. I’m disappointed in myself,” Biden told the group before allegedly hugging one of the participants at the end of the meeting. According to Fox News, the Muslim leaders cautioned him to show more empathy to the Palestinians.
President Joe Biden has come under heavy criticism for his weakness since the Israel-Hamas war began on Oct. 7. The president came under heavy criticism for failing to negotiate the release of Americans held hostage by the terror group.
Rep. Carlos Gimenez (R-FL) on Friday maintained that the president’s weakness was the reason why Hamas did not release any of the American hostages it took from Israel on Oct. 7.
“And so, again, this president, all he shows is weakness. And, frankly, I have no faith in his ability to free those American hostages. Let’s see what happens in the future.” Gimenez said. “He should have more empathy for the American hostages and families and should be viewed as doing everything in his power to get them back. Not really vacationing and Nantucket but that seems to be what President Biden does most of the time. He doesn’t spend much time in the White House. He spends a lot of his time away.”
