At a press conference on Thursday night, President Joe Biden falsely identified the president of Egypt and accused Israel of a harsh response in Gaza.

Following the slaughter of over a thousand Israeli civilians at the hands of Hamas terrorists during the events of October 7th, Biden offered the the Jewish state his full support.

However, the alarm is now ringing for many Israelis, three months later, due to Biden’s change in stance, which has included sanctioning some Israeli civilians.

“I’m of the view that the conduct of the response in the Gaza Strip has been over the top,” Biden during the impromptu press conference.

“I think that as you know, initially, the president of Mexico Sisi did not want to open up the gate to allow humanitarian material to get in. I talked to him, I convinced him to open the gate.” Biden added, accidentally misidentifiying the president of Egypt, Abdel Fattah El-Sisi, as the president of Mexico.

Biden expressed his desire for an initial armistice to evolve into a lasting peace agreement in the future.

He stated that he was negotiating a peace accord between Israel and Saudi Arabia prior to the October 7 massacre by Hamas.

“I am pushing very hard now to deal with this hostage ceasefire,” he said. “I have been working tirelessly in this deal … how can I say this without revealing–. To lead to a sustained pause in the fighting and the actions taking place in the Gaza Strip.” Biden said.

“In the very beginning right after before Hamas attacked, I was in contact with the Saudis and others to work out a deal where they would recognize Israel’s right to exist, make them part of the Middle East, recognize them fully, in return for things that the United States would commit to do,” he said.

“One of them was to deal with the protection against their arch enemy to the north west — north east I should say. The second one, by providing ammunition and material for them to defend themselves.” Biden continued.

“Coincidentally, that’s the timeframe when this broke out. I have no proof of what I’m about to say, but it’s not unreasonable to suspect that the Hamas understood what was about to take place and wanted to break it up before it happened.” Biden added.

“There are a lot of innocent people who are starving, a lot of innocent people who are in trouble and dying. It’s got to stop.” he concluded.
