Biden, Do the Right Thing. Push Israel and Netanyahu Hard Now for a Cease-Fire in Gaza.

With the United States having carried out retaliatory airstrikes in Iraq and Syria after Iran-linked militias killed three U.S. service members in Jordan, America is again engaged in a widening conflict in the Middle East, with little idea of where it will lead.

America’s sprawling, illogical collection of military forces in the region, coupled with the Biden administration’s unconditional support for Israel’s war effort, has enabled persistent tragedy and the ever-growing escalation of risk.

Given the undeniable link between attacks on U.S. interests and the war in Gaza, President Joe Biden must stop ignoring the best option he has to safeguard American lives and prevent a wider war.

It’s time for the president to push hard for an Israel-Hamas cease-fire.
