In a recent scuffle, it seems that America’s news outlets are no longer the kings of the castle in the war zone surrounding the West Bank. A CNN reporter and her photographer, decked out in bulletproof vests and helmets, were capturing the chaos on the streets when a group of scarf-wearing Palestinians surrounded them. And it wasn’t a warm welcome they received.

“Hold your horses, genocidal supporters! You’re not welcome here!” one man shouted at the CNN reporter’s face. He then proceeded to let out a string of expletives directed at CNN. Eventually, the reporters managed to escape this angry mob and move on.
Now, covering war zones is not for the faint of heart. Not only do these reporters have to worry about their own safety, but they also have to witness and describe the unimaginable horrors that take place in these areas. Just last week, another reporter took her viewers on a journey through an Israeli neighborhood near Gaza, where Hamas terrorists carried out unspeakable acts of violence, including beheading innocent babies. Even the Israeli soldiers on site were shocked by the carnage.
But thanks to our trusty smartphones, we have more and more videos popping up, giving us a glimpse into the mayhem. One such video shows the early moments of Hamas’ attack on an Israeli rave festival.
As the terrorists hunted down their victims one by one, hundreds of brave souls hid behind trees and vehicles, praying that they wouldn’t be the next target. On the flip side, we also have footage revealing Israel’s attempts to take down Hamas leaders in Gaza. Streets and buildings were obliterated in an effort to wipe them out.
And just when we thought we couldn’t catch a break from all the chaos, President Biden came forward with a primetime speech. He’s calling for a whopping $100 million in new spending to support Israel’s ground invasion of Gaza. He’s even linking this funding to the money we’ve already given to Ukraine, claiming that both Hamas and Russia are out to eliminate democracies in their neighborhood.
It’s all about protecting America’s reputation in the world, folks.
Meanwhile, House Republicans are still trying to figure out who will be their next speaker. It’s a bit of a headache, but until they settle on someone, they can’t approve the funds that Biden is asking for. Let’s hope they don’t take too long, because time is of the essence in this explosive situation.
