Biden Promised Gaza Aid Wouldn’t Go To Hamas. He Lied: And Now an Official Who Funded the Murder of a 17-Year-Old Girl is In Charge

Biden Promised Gaza Aid Wouldn’t Go To Hamas. He Lied:
And now an official who funded the murder of a 17-year-old girl is in charge.
A week after the horrors of October 7, when the Biden administration first convinced Israel to open up the siege of Gaza and allow in international aid, it promised Hamas would not get it.
“If Hamas in any way blocks humanitarian assistance from reaching civilians, including by seizing the aid itself, we’ll be the first to condemn it. And we will work to prevent it from happening again,” Secretary of State Blinken pledged.
The problem with such a promise was obvious once Deputy National Security Advisor Jon Finer struggled to explain to CNN how it would stop Hamas from taking the aid.
“How is the United States going to ensure that none of that ends up in the hands of Hamas?” a CNN anchor asked.
Finer claimed that “this was a primary focus of the president’s diplomacy” and that “it involves securing an understanding among Hamas fighters who control the checkpoints on the other side of the border”.
The Deputy National Security Advisor assured that “the president was quite clear that if this assistance goes in, it cannot be misappropriated, it cannot be taken by Hamas fighters and so we are going to be watching that very closely.”
If anyone is watching, there’s been plenty to see as armed Hamas fighters have hijacked aid convoys in videos taken both by the IDF and civilians in Gaza. In video after video, Hamas terrorists seize aid, assault civilians who, in some cases, respond by hurling abuse and stones.
On Halloween, John Kirby, Biden’s national security spokesman, denied anything was going on.
“We have seen no indication, none, that Hamas has gotten their hands on any of the humanitarian assistance that has gone in. None of it. It goes from these U.N. trucks to humanitarian organizations and the U.N. for delivery to the people of Gaza. That’s what we’ve seen with every single one of them,” he claimed.
Then he insisted that our “UN partners” were monitoring aid with “diligence”. What were the UN partners actually doing?
In mid October, UNRWA, the UN aid agency dedicated to the so-called ‘Palestinian’ settlers and staffed by Hamas, tweeted that it “received reports that yesterday a group of people with trucks purporting to be from the Ministry of Health of the de facto authorities in Gaza removed fuel and medical equipment from the agency’s compound in Gaza City.”
UNRWA then deleted the tweet accusing Hamas of stealing aid and pretended it never happened.
In late December, an UNRWA official claimed that, “there’s no hijacking of our (UNRWA) supplies by Hamas.” The official then argued that accusations that Hamas was taking aid were a “disinformation campaign” which was “aimed at the very agency trying to help people.”
The disinformation campaign apparently included UNRWA’s own Twitter account.
Earlier that same month, a Gazan woman had told Al Jazeera that, “all of it goes into their houses. They take it and will even shoot me or do whatever they want, Hamas.”
She must have also been part of the “disinformation campaign” against UNRWA.
Months after all the assurances from the Biden administration that the aid would not end up in the hands of Hamas, it routinely does and without a word of protest or any end to the aid trucks.
