Biden To Deploy U.S. Military To Gaza To Help The Palestinians: Report

 President Joe Biden will reportedly announce during his State of the Union speech on Thursday that he is deploying the U.S. military to Gaza to help build infrastructure for the Palestinians.

Biden’s announcement comes as Israel has been conducting military operations inside Gaza for the last five months in response to Palestinian terrorists with Hamas murdering 1,200 people inside Israel on October 7.

The “emergency mission” will be to help build a port in Gaza that will create a maritime route for humanitarian assistance from Cyprus, according to U.S. officials.

Officials blamed Israel for the mission, claiming that they were not letting in enough aid into Gaza, even though Hamas steals much of the aid and those who deliver the aid often come under attack.

“We’re not waiting on the Israelis,” an official told Politico. “This is a moment for American leadership, and we are building a coalition of countries to address this urgent need.”

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) ripped Biden over the reports, posting on X: “Joe Biden continues to capitulate to the pro-Hamas wing of his party at the expense of our Israeli allies.”

Foundation for Defense of Democracies Senior Adviser Richard Goldberg posted: “If only Joe Biden had put as much effort into bringing all Americans home from captivity as he has into adopting Hamas propaganda on the situation in Gaza.”

Former U.S. Ambassador to Israel David M. Friedman called the announcement “a cheap political trick”.

“Remember that billions of dollars of aid has come into Gaza over the past 15 years and almost all of it was used to build terror tunnels and rocket launchers. How will that be prevented this time? Won’t a port just accelerate and exacerbate this risk?” he posted on X. “And even with a port, the humanitarian aid has to be loaded onto trucks to get to their destination — yes, the same trucks that Hamas is commandeering and preventing from going to the right people!”

“The issue in Gaza is not the infrastructure — it’s the leadership. How will that change when Biden isn’t even letting Israel destroy four Hamas battalions in Rafah?!” he continued. “This is just a ‘wash rinse repeat’ strategy that has failed the Palestinians so many times in the past — throw money at them and then virtue signal!”

He said that if there was no real accountability in Gaza, meaning an elimination of Hamas and its leaders, the port was “just a bridge to nowhere.”
