NEW: Biden Wrong

( – The path to a ceasefire in Gaza remains plagued with challenges despite ongoing discussions between Israel and Hamas.

Recently, Joe Biden announced that Israel had agreed to pause its military offensive during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan if a deal to release some hostages could be achieved. This announcement was made before the Michigan primary where Biden’s support for Israel has faced critizism from the Arab American community.

However, Biden was proved to be WRONG as his statement caught Israeli officials off guard. They indicated that there had been no prior coordination or agreement as Biden suggested, and this whole announcement is now flagged as a strategic lie before the Michigan primary.

Biden’s words were “Ramadan’s coming up, and there has been an agreement by the Israelis that they would not engage in activities during Ramadan as well, in order to give us time to get all the hostages out,” he noted on NBC’s “Late Night With Seth Meyers.”

Additionally, he hopes that a deal can be struck by next week but now it seems that won’t be possible after his alleged “confusion” when making the proven fake announcement earlier.

In Gaza, the humanitarian crisis deepens with thousands dead, infrastructure destroyed, and a severe shortage of food and medical supplies.

Efforts to alleviate the suffering like international aid drops have provided some relief, but the situation remains dire.

The ongoing negotiations for a ceasefire involve demands from both sides like the exchange of hostages for Palestinian prisoners and an increase in aid deliveries to Gaza.

The approaching month of Ramadan has been seen as a critical window for reaching an agreement, yet Biden’s latest comments have caused nothing but trouble and negotiations may be doomed as a consequence.

Qatar feels optimistic about the talks, but nothing is confirmed yet. The proposed deal might allow hundreds of trucks with aid to enter Gaza every day which would help with the crisis there.

While Joe Biden supports Israel he also left the door open for a possible ground offensive in Rafah, a city in southern Gaza.

Israel wants a deal soon but says Hamas is asking for too much. They also want female soldiers to be among the first hostages released. Meanwhile, Hamas has previously said they want the war to end as part of any deal, which Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has called “delusional.”
