Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu recently issued a fiery speech where he rejected the U.S.’s calls for the Holy Land to put its guns down as it defends itself against Hamas, a terrorist organization.

Since Oct. 7, 2023, Israel has been forced to defend itself against Hamas terrorists who refuse to recognize the Jewish State’s sovereignty and right to exist.
Netanyahu recently gave a televised speech to Israelis where he announced his refusal to a request by the Biden administration for Israel to “pause” in its fight against Hamas, presumably for humanitarian reasons.
Netanyahu said that the Middle East war would end in only one outcome: Israel’s victory.
“We won’t stop until victory,” he said before specifying that this means “to destroy Hamas [and attain the] return of the hostages and the restoration of security for our citizens and children.”
In his speech, the Israeli prime minister recounted a meeting he had with U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken, where he showed the secretary footage of Hamas’ all-out invasion of Israel on Oct. 7, 2023.
“I appreciate the consistent support of President Biden, the American administration, and the American people,” Netanyahu recalled saying during the meeting.
“I conveyed to him that we are continuing with all our might. Israel refuses a temporary ceasefire that does not include the liberation of our hostages. Israel will not allow fuel into the Gaza Strip, and opposes the transfer of money into the Strip,” he added, again recalling his comments.
President Joe Biden, alongside Democrats, has called for a “pause” in the Middle East war, which many speculate is to allow humanitarian aid to pour into the Gaza strip and allow Hamas to let go some of the 241 hostages it currently holds, as reported by Breitbart News.
Breitbart News reported that humanitarian aid is currently flowing through Gaza from the south while fighting rages in the north.
Biden’s call for a “pause” in the war comes after Hamas said it would not release any hostages should there be a ceasefire. The terrorist organization revealed that the only way the hostages would see their homes again was if Israel agreed to release all Palestinian prisoners in its jails.
