Another doctor who attended was taken aback when she showed Biden prints of photos of malnourished children and women in Gaza — to which Biden responded that he had seen those images before. The problem, the doctor said, was that she had printed the photos from her own iPhone.

“This speaks volumes to the dismissive nature of the administration when it comes to strong-willed action towards a permanent cease-fire or, at a bare minimum, a red line on the invasion of Rafah,” Dr. Nahreen H. Ahmed told NBC News.

Poland’s foreign minister: Israel appears to have been ‘willing to sacrifice seven innocent people’

In an interview with the BBC in the UK, Poland’s foreign minister has said that the targeting of the World Central Kitchen humanitarian aid convoy on Monday showed that Israeli forces “seem to have been willing to sacrifice seven innocent people” in order to target what they considered was one Hamas operative.

Radosław Sikorski told listeners to the BBC Radio 4 Today programme:

The Israeli chief of staff says this was a case of mistaken identity and that they thought there was a terrorist among them.

But even if there was, they seem to have been willing to sacrifice seven innocent people for someone who was not an immediate danger.

These are moral hazards that I do not think are acceptable.

Israel presented a plan to move 1.4 million civilians over several weeks from Rafah to tents that would be set up north of the city, the officials said. But the Israeli proposal did not include plans for addressing sanitation needs or an assessment of how much food or water would be required or where it would come from, the officials said. They said the Israeli officials had only thought through sourcing for a fraction of the hundreds of thousands of tents that would be needed.

“ Not saying it has ended now, but for the first time there is some positive movement.

I would like one good faith powerful person (maybe one whose names rhymes with Leposi) to explain what changed between January and April and if that was really anything other than a reflection of their extremely poor judgment.”

Israel, as a recognized state, has repeatedly expressed its willingness to engage in negotiations and pursue a peaceful resolution to the conflict.

He’s basically equating all Palestinians with Hamas, too, meaning that the high death toll of women and children are entirely justified. If what Hamas did was wrong, then what Israel is doing now in the Gaza strip is wrong, too. Seems to me that he’s doing the exact same thing he’s accusing others of doing, in fact.
