Posted on 10/29/2023 9:10:25 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
While Joe Biden was visiting Israel, he announced that his priority was to get aid into Gaza. He barely spoke about the slaughtered and kidnapped Israelis and Americans. He announced that he was going to ship in $100 million in aid to Gaza and fixated on that and Ukraine.
While there has been no response from the U.S. for the killings and Americans are still being held hostage, Biden did make sure that aid was shipped into Gaza right away, despite the concerns about Hamas stealing it.
How were they going to ensure it wasn't stolen?
Secretary of State Antony Blinken said the Biden team had a "plan," and if it were stolen, they would be the "first to condemn it."
SEC. BLINKEN: “The U.S. and Israel have agreed to develop a plan that will enable humanitarian aid from donor nations and multilateral organizations to reach civilians in Gaza, and them alone.”

I'm sure that had Hamas shaking in their boots.
Then came the statement from Deputy National Security Advisor Jon Finer. His remarks were even worse. According to Finer, they believe they can prevent Hamas from stealing the aid because they have an understanding with...wait for it...Hamas.
Q: How will you ensure none of the $100M for Gaza/West Bank "ends up in the hands of Hamas?"
DEP. NSA JON FINER: "It involves securing an understanding among Hamas..."
Q: We should "take the word of Hamas...?"

But now comes word that thousands of people have broken into the UN warehouses in Gaza and stolen some of the aid.
One of the warehouses, located in Deir al-Balah in central Gaza, is where UNRWA stores supplies delivered by humanitarian convoys crossing into Gaza from Egypt.
Footage from Khan Younis in southern Gaza showed men frantically carrying boxes and large bags out of a warehouse, hoisting them onto their shoulders or loading them onto their bicycles.

A lot of people I saw in the various videos are young men. Are they Hamas? So now where will the aid go?
I wouldn't bet on the aid getting to those most in need. And if there is such a "need," why was there so much in the warehouse? People are painting it as people being desperate. But what this does show is that the aid isn't secure, just as people predicted.
So what does the Biden team have to say now? I could likely guess their response -- they're desperate, so let's ship in even more aid to be stolen without fixing any of the problems.
As we reported, the war is expanding. But for Hamas, it pays for the situation to disintegrate. They don't care about the people, they use them as human shields and then blame Israel for their deaths.
Biden admin... A ship of fools headed for the jagged rocks.
there is no need to feed human shields
But they’re the adults. How much of the 100,000,000 is ripped off?
Any aid for Gaza should be preconditioned on releasing all hostages unharmed.
There’s nothing naive about it. No one is that stupid. It’s intentional.
Joe is not naive...
Its an elaborate laundering scheme...
Biden admin... A ship of fools headed for the jagged rocks.
And we are the ones riding in the ship’s hold.
0ba⋔a once said “Don’t underestimate Joe’s ability to f–k things up.” Since f-ing America is what 0ba⋔a wants, I guess he meant that as a recommendation for the job.
Have you heard any of these elite in the West demand an unconditional surrender of Hamas, release of all hostages and a process set in place to try these inbreds in for their unspeakable crimes
Don’t hold your breath.
Biden immediately demanded they restore all of it. Elon Musk even said Saturday he would provide Starlink to "humanitarian organizations" (which means Hamas would get it) - likely prodded by the Biden cabal. Israel had no choice but to restore internet Saturday night.
Biden also bragged that Israel is delaying its ground invasion, stupidly, as a result of his pressures, using the "hostages" as the excuxse. I can only conclude Biden and Blinken are threatening to delay delivery of Arrow missiles for Iron Dome, etc, or to criticize Jerusalem if they don't comply.
Flood the tunnels ?
Humanitarian aid has been a fools errand all along. The current administration is certainly not the only one with that kind of gullibility.
Thank you. That POS knows exactly what he is doing.
We counted and recounted the aid going to Ghaza, and there is not one scintilla of evidence that it was stolen./irony
“Flood the tunnels ?”
Or..why don’t they do what the Russians did some years ago when Muslim terrorists took over a theater along with hostages? The Russians piped in a sleeping gas of some sort then, removed the hostages safely and shot all the terrorists while they were still unconscious. That should work in tunnels too.
Just another poorly disguised scam to support HAMAS through the back door.
“Now don’t you steal these supplies you need even though we are hiding the key under the door mat!”
“If you do we will be the first to condemn you.”
Every informed person in the world knows that America’s so-called “Humanitarian Aid” money helps finance the Palestinians payments to families of terrorists killed while attacking Israelis.
this is not naivete its stupidity, arrogance and deliberate rolled into one. We have never been in a more dangerous place with these idiots in charge, they care not about the American people or the country
