Biden Supports a ‘Pause’ in Israel-Hamas War After Jewish Voice for Peace Heckler Demanded Ceasefire

Biden Supports a ‘Pause’ in Israel-Hamas War After Jewish Voice for Peace Heckler Demanded Ceasefire

Of course JVP is at the center of this.

President Joe Biden has been against a ceasefire in the Israel-Hamas war.

But now Biden said there needs to be a pause to transport humanitarian aid and provide a safe crossing for those trapped in Gaza after a progressive rabbi from Jewish Voice for Peace demanded a ceasefire.

Of course, a JVP member is at the center of this:

“I think we need a pause,” Biden began. “A pause means give time to get the prisoners out.”

In his comments, Biden was exerting pressure on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to give Palestinians a brief reprieve from Israel’s retaliatory military operation. He also said he convinced both Netanyahu and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi to allow aid into Gaza.

Biden later said that he understood the “emotion” over the war and said it is “incredibly complicated for Israelis.”

“It’s incredibly complicated for the Muslim world as well… I supported a two state solution, I have from the very beginning,” he continued. “The fact is the matter is that Hamas is a terrorist organization. A flat-out terrorist organization.”

Biden’s call was a subtle departure for the president and top White House aides, who throughout the Mideast crisis have been steadfast in stating they will not dictate how the Israelis carry out their military operations in response to the Oct. 7 attack by Hamas.

The heckler is “Rabbi” Jessica Rosenberg. You all know that “Jewish Voice for Peace” is a rabid anti-Israel group that supports BDS. Even the ADL cannot stand JVP:

According to various biographies of Rosenberg, she currently resides in south Minneapolis, Minnesota, having been raised in Philadelphia. She is a rabbi with the progressive reconstructionist Jewish movement and became ordained in 2018.

Rosenberg has been described as a member of the LGBTQ+ community, and in 2020 wrote a handbook on “trauma, healing and resistance” for Jewish leaders and activists.

Not that this was staged….

    Did you mean to suggest that the WH would deliberately stage manage an interruption by planting a member of JVP in the audience? The same JVP that went into the Capitol and deliberately created a disturbance (aka an insurrection when folks of different political beliefs do it).

    Yeah this looks like a total con job. Especially considering the ‘threats’ some fairly prominent lefty Muslim groups made to the Biden WH re imposing a ceasefire or lose their electoral support in ’24.

Hamas has had plenty of time to hand over all the kidnapped victims.

Its now time for them to pay a price for their evil.

So Hamas unilaterally commences hostilities on Oct. 7th against Israel, slaughters women and children in the most gruesome manner and even has the audacity to broadcast Israeli citizens being slaughtered, and some “Rabbi” demands a ceasefire now that Hamas is getting their hind end handed to them on a silver platter?

Yeah, no. Hamas crossed a line that should never have been crossed and I doubt the Israeli government is feeling charitable enough to declare a cease fire until the whole of Hamas is eliminated from Gaza.

At a minimum, there should not be any ceasefire until Hamas agrees never to attack Israel.

Right now, Hamas promises to continue its attacks until all Israelis are eliminated from the area.

    >>At a minimum, there should not be any ceasefire until Hamas agrees never to attack Israel. <<

    And how many times in the last decade or two has Hamas ever kept any peace accord, peace agreement or promise when it comes to hostilities against Israel. They have never done it. Never. They just use such things as time to regroup, rearm and then continue their terrorist violence. Any attempts to negotiate with Hamas is pointless. You’d think that Israel had that one figured out years ago. But here we are and there we go.

      It’s not just Hamas, the palestinians have never honoured any agreement they’ve ever signed or promise they’ve ever made with anyone.

        Puts me in mind of the far-left DC government, and not coincidentally.

        When reminded that the [gun] registration plan in Washington, DC was enacted with the specific promise to gun owners that the lists would not be used for confiscation, the bills sponsor retorted: “Well, I never promised them anything.”
        (Guns & Ammo, 12/76, P. 86)

Slow and relentless destruction is the way to go. If anything it gives hostages value to Hamas and ensures their survival.

The longer it goes on, the more Hamas you kill. Just don’t stop.

The drones overhead 24/7 making drone noises are a nice touch too. No letup.

We aren’t allowed to say we want a “Ceasefire”.

Well, what can we say then?

Let’s call for a “Pause” in the fighting.

Isn’t that the same thing?

Yes, but it will fool a lot of people.

It seems obvious that even if the White House walks back this comment sometime today, the writing is on the wall. THIS Administration is eventually going to go wobbly.

I suspect much of that wobbliness is being driven by Biden’s falling poll numbers which have been largely impacted by voters in his own coalition beginning to abandon him. Biden is clearly a man of political expedience, not principle. Ultimately, this will come down to which vote – the Muslim vote or the Jewish vote – is more important, electorally. I don’t know the answer to that for certain. But, I suspect the Muslim vote is likely more potentially impactful in a few Battleground states than the Jewish vote is. If the Democrats lose all of the Jewish vote (which isn’t going to happen) in NY, NJ, CA & MA, would it put those states in play? Clearly not. But, if they lost a significant % of the Muslim vote in MI, that could definitely tip a close election.

    mrzee in reply to TargaGTS. | November 2, 2023 at 12:08 pm

    Rather than which votes are more important, it may come down to which fundraisers are more important, Jewish or Muslim. I’m betting on Jewish.

    henrybowman in reply to TargaGTS. | November 2, 2023 at 2:49 pm

    “THIS Administration is eventually going to go wobbly.”
    This administration has been marshmallow squishy from day one of the war. Its crocodile tears for the poor Palestinians who were forced to rape and kill innocents was sickening.

    If anything, Biden’s statement that “The fact is the matter is that Hamas is a terrorist organization. A flat-out terrorist organization” is quite possibly the most definitive pro-Israel sentiment I have seen the administration express up to this point. An expression for which I’m sure he will be taken to the woodshed by his masters.

Biden may be steadfast in his support of Israel but that does not mean he is in favor of winning, in what ever form that might take. Joe is after all a creature of the left and the growing call among the Western left is ‘ceasefire’. That call is nothing more than the “purgatory position”.

The ‘two state solution’ is no solution at all. It is a Western attitude that is sellable to the Western mind set as if everything comes down to a real estate transaction. That is a take what you can get at the moment in the Arab world. Fundamentalist Islam only sees one state and Israel does not exist in it.

The enemy is closing in all around. I’ve run out of ammunition. What I need is a ceasefire to give me time to steal me some humanitarian aid and buy more ammo. I insist. Thanks.

    Lucifer Morningstar in reply to George S. | November 2, 2023 at 12:13 pm

    Regroup, rearm, and continue hostilities. That’s the only reason Hamas and their lackeys now want a “ceasefire”. Simply to regroup, rearm, and continue the hostilities against Israel. They’ve done it in the past and they’re attempting the same strategy now. And Israel would be insane to declare a cease fire pause at this point in time.

    geronl in reply to George S. | November 2, 2023 at 1:16 pm

    Every bit of the humanitarian aid is given to Hamas. Hamas runs Gaza.

They need a name change in order to match reality.

Jewish Voice for Exterminating All Jews

CBS: “Hundreds of Americans who were trapped in Gaza appeared set to leave the war-torn territory on Thursday.
A list released by Gaza’s Hamas-controlled Interior Ministry had the names of 400 American nationals who were approved to cross over the border on Thursday”

NBC: 18 hours ago quoted a Biden admin official that said less than ten aid workers received permission to leave Gaza. Less than a day ago.

There’s some very vague and contradictory reporting by media. They’re straight up lying to us.

    henrybowman in reply to Tiki. | November 2, 2023 at 2:52 pm

    When Biden pledged that any American who wanted to leave would be allowed to leave, I was pretty sure that I’d heard that exact pledge before, and the son of a bitch was lying then, too.


“American Palestinians waiting at the Rafah crossing to leave Gaza described their fear and frustration, telling The Washington Post they had been “waiting in completely inhumane conditions” amid uncertainty over whether they would be permitted to cross, and that they felt neglected by the American embassy”

No mention how the “escapees” managed to penetrate the Hamas blockade.

Okay, the ceasefire shall commence once every remaining Hamas terrorist is killed or captured and Bibi says it is over. You hs r no say joe

Israel recently had a cease fire. Those terrible Israelis ending cease fires for no reason whatsoever.

Fat_Freddys_Cat | November 2, 2023 at 12:32 pm

I’m waiting for one of the “ceasefire now!” people to explain “then what?” Some of them act as though a ceasefire is an end unto itself but that’s not what a ceasefire is; it is the means to some end. What do they expect to accomplish?

BigRosieGreenbaum | November 2, 2023 at 12:41 pm

Pause to reload?

They realize than all this “humanitarian aid” is going straight to Hamas, right?

I wonder if there are any Hamas terrorists being brought back with them? And what are we going to do about sleepers hiding in their community? Will they give aid and comfort to those people, or will they out them? Maybe Thad Jarvis can weigh in on this?

The goal of whoever is running Biden and the government is the destruction of Israel while keeping American Jewish cash donations.

This is what this so-called “rabbi” looks like.

Rabbi Jessica Rosenberg currently resides on Dakota land, also home to the Anishinaabe, known as South Minneapolis. She was raised on Lenape land, in the Philadelphia suburbs, by Ken z”l and Shelley, accidental organizers who taught her that Jewish communities should be life-giving and values-aligned, and that it is up to us to build them. She became a Reconstructionist rabbi in order to learn our people’s diverse and nuanced histories, and create spaces, ritual and organizing that help transform our relationships to past, present and future. She has worked as a national organizer at Bend the Arc: Jewish Action and as a collective member of the Radical Jewish Calendar project.

So what does Biden imagine is the difference between a “pause” and a “ceasefire”?
