The Israel-Hamas war continues to rage, with no end in sight for the short term. Terror group Hamas is receiving support from radical groups in Lebanon and reportedly Syria. Despite what the White House claimed, it appears Iran is also backing Hamas’s war against Israel.
This week, President Biden took the extraordinary step of flying to a war-hit country. The plan was for Biden to meet with Israeli and Arab leaders from neighboring countries.
But a rocket fired from Gaza changed everything. Hamas and anti-Israel groups claimed Israel struck a hospital–despite it coming out later that it had been fired by a terror group. Immediately, the Arab leaders slated to meet with Biden insulted him before the world.
Arab leaders canceled a meeting that they had scheduled with President Joe Biden later this week after a rocket fired by Palestinian terrorists malfunctioned and struck a hospital in Gaza, killing hundreds of people.
The meeting with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, Jordanian King Abdullah, and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi was canceled as disinformation ran rampant on social media and in newsrooms across the world after those on the political Left immediately parroted claims from the Gaza Health Ministry that Israel bombed the hospital.

According to reports by IDF–confirmed by footage, audio, and other analysis–the rocket that struck a hospital in Gaza was fired from within Gaza. Video footage provided by Al Jazeera shows the rocket quickly misfiring while still rising into the air, hitting the area near the hospital.
But reports from Hamas spread across social media, blaming Israel for the blast. This provoked leaders from Egypt, Jordan, and the Palestinian Authority to cancel their meeting with President Biden.
It’s unclear why these Arab leaders would cancel a meeting with the U.S. president, because of this blast. It seems as if they are holding the United States accountable for this event, despite the U.S. playing no part in it.
Even after evidence revealed terrorists were responsible for the strike, these leaders have not agreed to meet with Biden.
Critics will wonder if these leaders would have issued such an insult, had someone else been in Biden’s shoes. Would these leaders suddenly cancel a meeting with President Trump? Would they have done this, if Biden didn’t suffer from an appearance of weakness and decline?
Footage from Biden’s meetings in Israel has not inspired confidence among Americans. While speaking with the Israeli prime minister, Biden rambled, forgot what he was saying, called Hamas “the other team,” and appeared drained and lethargic.
Considering the Arab world admires and responds to strength, Biden is the last person they’d respect.
