The war between Israel and Hamas continues to escalate.
Joe Biden recently called for a ceasefire in order to allow humanitarian aid into the region.
And Ron DeSantis just called out Joe Biden for providing a gift to Hamas terrorists in Gaza.
On Wednesday, Joe Biden delivered a campaign speech in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where he was interrupted by a woman who yelled, “Mr. President, if you care about Jewish people, as a rabbi, I need you to call for a cease-fire.”
Just down the road from where Biden spoke, over a thousand protesters gathered with signs that read “Stop Bombing Children” and “Free Palestine” and “Ceasefire Now.”
“This is incredibly complicated for the Israelis,” Biden said. “It’s incredibly complicated for the Muslim world as well. … I supported a two-state solution, I have from the very beginning.”
“The fact of the matter is that Hamas is a terrorist organization,” he added. “A flat-out terrorist organization.”
However, after the event, Biden called on Israel to agree to a ceasefire so humanitarian aid could be delivered into the Gaza Strip.
“I think we need a pause,” Biden said.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis strongly disagrees with Joe Biden and opposes any type of ceasefire or aid to the region.
During a speech last week at the Republican Jewish Coalition, DeSantis warned that Hamas is trying to perform a “second Holocaust” in Israel.
And in a post on X, DeSantis ripped Biden’s calls for humanitarian aid and warned that it would be used by Hamas for their purposes.
“The Biden Admin is shamefully pressuring Israel to permit fuel into Gaza despite knowing Iran-backed Hamas has significant fuel reserves that it refuses to provide to civilians and takes the fuel for its rockets and terror tunnels against Israel,” DeSantis wrote on X.
“At the same time, the Biden Admin is also pressuring Israel to agree to a ‘humanitarian pause’ – which is the same as a dangerous ceasefire,” the Governor continued. “Both are a gift to Hamas, give time for Hamas to rearm and prepare for more attacks against Israel, risk the lives of brave Israeli soldiers, and make it harder for Israel to eradicate Hamas.”
“Biden’s demands are outrageous, disgraceful and wrong,” DeSantis added, before adding that “I unequivocally stand with Israel.”

However, DeSantis has also warned about America getting involved in the Middle East.
“I think that we have to be careful about getting enmeshed in a war in the Middle East, partially because China is really going to take advantage of this situation and you just find yourself $33 trillion in debt as it is (with) a very weakened defense industrial base,” DeSantis told Newsmax on Monday.
He also promised that “you wouldn’t see ground troops fighting in Israel if I were President.”
No one is denying Israel’s right to defend itself.
But as DeSantis warned, America has no obligation or interest to get bogged down in another long war overseas.
