In a continuation of his turn against Israel, President Joe Biden demanded that it agrees to a ceasefire in its operation against Hamas without a condition for the release of the almost 150 hostages the terrorist organization is still holding.

During a Univision that aired Tuesday night, Biden was asked if Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “is more concerned about his political survival than he is in the national interest of his people.”

In response, he said that Netanyahu is making “a mistake” in his military campaign to eliminate Hamas after it carried out an unprecedented attack on Israel on Oct. 7, killing about 1,200 Israelis and taking more than 200 hostage.

Biden made it clear that he does not agree with Netanyahu’s approach. Hence, he is calling for a ceasefire and for Israel to “allow for the next six, eight weeks total access to all food and medicine going into the country.”

“I’ve spoken with everyone from the Saudis to the Jordanians to the Egyptians. They’re prepared to move in. They’re prepared to move this food in. And I think there’s no excuse to not provide for the medical and the food needs of those people. It should be done now,” Biden stated.

Biden’s demands, which take him further away from Israel’s side, mark a shift from his initial calls for a ceasefire which required the release of the hostages held by Hamas.

The president’s demand is not only appalling to the majority of Republicans but to some on his political side. In a post to X, Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA) condemned the president’s pressure on Israel, warning that it is only empowering Hamas and giving them the illusion that they have won.

“All of this appalling, widespread capitulation has convinced Hamas they’ve won. How many more news cycles until Hamas is portrayed in the media as victims?” he wrote.

The former head of the Anti-Defamation League, Abraham Foxman, who is a longtime supporter of Biden, has also condemned his constant criticism of Israel and his demand for an immediate ceasefire.

“President Biden-respectfully please stop criticizing PM Netanyahu- while he is not perfect- Hamas went to war against the State of Israel not the PM-your ceaseless criticism only weakens Israel and strengthens Hamas and Israel’s enemies here and abroad,” he wrote in a post to X.
