Sorry, President Biden, but Putin is not Hamas

During a primetime speech from the Oval Office last week, President Biden discussed the urgency that America stand with Israel after the barbarous Hamas terrorist attack on Oct. 7. But he also attempted to conflate the war in Ukraine with the Hamas attack, arguing that victory by Israel over Hamas and victory by Ukraine over Russia is "vital for American security." 

This is how Biden tried to justify his new $106 billion emergency funding package which allocates $61.4 billion for Ukraine (an increase of $36 billion from his August request), $14.3 billion for Israel, $9 billion for unspecified humanitarian efforts in Ukraine, Israel, and Gaza, $13.6 billion to defend the U.S southern border, and $7 billion in security assistance for the Indo-Pacific region. 

Biden is attempting to use the Hamas attack on Israel to salvage his Ukraine policy, which was on the verge of being defunded by Congress.

The president argued there is little difference between the Hamas attack and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine because both events have included the murder and rape of women, the killing of children and the elderly, various forms of torture, rape, and children being forcibly taken from their parents.
