NEW: Hamas Stiff-Arms Biden

( – Confirming that the left is willing to accommodate terrorists who should not be negotiated with, Hamas has firmly dismissed Joe Biden’s proposal for a brief ceasefire in Gaza.

In discussions involving the U.S., Israel, Qatar and Egypt, a temporary six-week peace was put on the table to allow a prisoner exchange.

Instead, the terrorist group outlined its own conditions for ending the conflict.

It called for a definitive end to the war and for Israel’s complete withdrawal from Gaza as preconditions for releasing hostages taken during the deadly terror attacks on October 7.

In turn, Israel revealed it agreed to start a dialogue under the American plan but had reservations since the deal was worked more in Hamas’ favor.

There is expectation around Hamas’ potential counteroffer, which is expected to rehash previous demands they have made.

Lately, Biden has been majorly disagreeing with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s strategies and stressed that a ceasefire was needed to minimize civilian harm and for America to keep providing financial backing.

“I think what he’s doing is a mistake. I don’t agree with his approach,” Biden said about Netanyahu. “What I’m calling for is for the Israelis to just call for a ceasefire.”

This conversation follows a regrettable incident where Israeli forces mistakenly targeted humanitarian workers, which prompted an internal Israel Defense Forces (IDF) investigation and subsequent disciplinary actions.

U.S. Secretary of State Anton Blinken echoed Biden’s calls for an immediate ceasefire. He also cautioned against actions that might blur the moral distinctions between Israel and Hamas, the latter responsible for the massive civilian murders marking the war’s beginning.

As Israel mules over a potential major military move into Rafah, Gaza, the Biden administration has expressed it opposes the move and highlighted the geopolitical and humanitarian stakes at play.

In anticipation of the highly likely Rafah invasion, the IDF withdrew most of the personnel to reassess the current landscape and plan for future moves.
