Russian dictator Vladimir Putin and Hamas terrorists are pursuing the same goal in the war – to wipe the neighboring democracy off the map. About this in the column for Washington Post said the US President Joe Bidenemphasizing the need to counteract both Hamas and the Russian Federation for the sake of a safe future for the whole world.
Biden said the world is now at an inflection point where decisions made – including during crises in Europe and the Middle East – will shape the direction for future generations.
“Will Israelis and Palestinians ever be able to live side by side in peace, with two states for two peoples? Will we hold Vladimir Putin accountable for his aggression so that the people of Ukraine can live freely and Europe remains an anchor of global peace and security? ” – Biden wrote.
The main question he called is whether the United States will tirelessly pursue a positive vision of the future, or allow those who do not share these values to “drag the world into a more dangerous and divided place.”
The American leader believes that the Palestinian people deserve their own state and a future free from Hamas.
“Both Putin and Hamas are fighting to wipe a neighboring democracy off the map. Both Putin and Hamas hope to destroy broader regional stability and integration and take advantage of the resulting disorder. America cannot and will not allow this to happen. In the interests of our national security and for the benefit of the whole world,” Biden said.
He stressed that the world expects the United States to “solve the problems of our time” – this is the “duty of leadership,” and America will take on this responsibility, since otherwise the risk of conflict could spread, and the costs of solving it will only increase.
“We will not let this happen <…> We know from the experience of two world wars of the last century that when aggression in Europe goes unanswered, the crisis does not go away on its own,” Biden said.
He emphasized that this directly involves the United States, and therefore the United States’ obligations to Ukraine today are investments in American security.
Biden noted that the United States is not allowing American troops to participate in the Russian-Ukrainian war, but is providing weapons and economic assistance to stop Putin’s desire for conquest before the conflict spreads further.
He added that the United States is not doing this alone, but together with more than 50 countries.
- According to an Ipsos poll conducted in mid-November, 41% of Americans support giving arms to Ukraine, which is 10% more than support for arms to Israel.
- Bloomberg reported yesterday that the US Congress could approve the next aid to Ukraine sometime in mid-December.
