President Joe Biden called for a humanitarian “pause” in the Israel-Hamas war during a campaign speech in Minneapolis.

He emphasized the need to allow time to get prisoners out and expressed support for a two-state solution.

“This is incredibly complicated for the Israelis,” Biden said. “It’s incredibly complicated for the Muslim world as well. … I supported a two-state solution, I have from the very beginning.”

Biden confirmed that Hamas is a terrorist organization, but has faced pressure from human rights groups and fellow world leaders to call for a ceasefire.

“The fact of the matter is that Hamas is a terrorist organization. A flat-out terrorist organization,” he stated.

The White House later pressed that Biden has “faced intensifying pressure from human rights groups, fellow world leaders and even liberal members of his own Democratic Party, who say that the Israeli bombardment of Gaza is collective punishment and that it is time for a cease-fire.”

“In his comments, Biden was exerting pressure on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to give Palestinians at least a brief reprieve from the relentless military operation that’s left thousands dead and mired the 141-square-mile strip in a roiling humanitarian crisis,” they added.

The White House pressed that the president’s push for a “pause” was for humanitarian reasons.
