President Biden urged Israel to exercise caution and refrain from allowing their decision-making to be “blinded by rage” in its military retaliation against Hamas following the terror group’s brutal surprise attack on October 7th.
During his recent national speech, President Biden urged Israel to draw lessons from the United States’ experiences and actions in the aftermath of the September 11th attacks.
The president warned of alleged “Islamophobia” after the deadly Hamas attacks, even as pro-Palestinian and even pro-Hamas demonstrations appear all across the nation.
“I know many of you in the Muslim American community are outraged saying to yourself ‘here we go again’ with Islamophobia and distress we saw after 9/11,” he remarked.
Biden added that terrorists and dictators must “pay a price” for their terror and aggression. He also attempted to draw in Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
Biden says success for Ukraine and Israel "is vital for America's national security."

“You know, history has taught us that when terrorists don’t pay a price for their terror, when dictators don’t pay a price for their aggression, they cause more chaos and death and more destruction. They keep going, and the cost and the threats to America and the world keep rising,” Biden said from the Oval Office.
“So if we don’t stop Putin’s appetite for power and control of Ukraine, he won’t limit himself just to the Ukraine,” he added.

Brit Hume, for his part, commented that Biden’s speech ‘may be remembered as one of the best if not the best speech of his presidency.”

“He was firm. He was unequivocal. He was strong,” Hume claimed, adding that he thought it was a “good thing” that Biden spent so much time on the situation in Ukraine as well as in Israel.
Meanwhile, there have been very few signs of rising “Islamophobia” in the United States following the brutal Hamas invasion of Oct. 7. However, there have been pro-Hamas protests across America, some of them explicitly seeking Israel to be ‘wiped off the map’ with chants such as, “from the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.”
More than 1500 high school radicals in San Francisco walked out of "school" yesterday to protest Israel.
Students were filmed chanting "From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free."

In his speech, professor Davidai noted the irony of colleges allowing “pro-terror” protests in the same New York City that experienced the deadliest terror attack in the nation’s history.
