118. How do you propose they "finish them off" without breaking the cease fire?

Nov 2023

You are mad that President Biden is putting our only true ally in the Middle East before politics?
Do you think that Presidents should always put the wants of the voters before National Security?

I stand with President Biden. Hamas MUST be stopped.

And please remember, we wouldn't have been in this position had Hamas broke the Cease Fire that was already in effect!
