The century-long conflict between Israel and Palestine reached a new level of conflict earlier this month after the horrific Oct. 7 terror attack on the Supernova Music Festival at Kibbutz Re’im by Hamas militants.

The assault by air and land by the militant arm of the terrorist organization that governs the more than two million Palestinians who live in the Gaza Strip included the killing of more than 260 revelers and many more kidnapped at the Paralello Universo Supernova Sukkot Gathering electronic dance music festival celebrating the Jewish holiday Simchat Torah.

Since then, Hamas fighters have killed more than 800 Israelis in various attacked throughout southern Israel, and Israel retaliated by launching bombs in the Gaza Strip, killing more than 500 Palestinians. Israel has also placed troops along the Gaza border and announced a “total blockade” of the Gaza Strip, stopping food, fuel and more commodities to the area.

While Hamas is just a small sector of the Palestinian population, the broader conflict between Israel and Palestine stems back to the 1917 Balfour Declaration, which committed the British government to “the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people.”

On Thursday (Oct. 19), President Joe Biden took to X to reveal that he’ll be addressing the ongoing Israel-Hamas war from the Oval Office at 8 p.m. ET. “Hamas’s terrorist attacks against Israel. The need for humanitarian assistance in Gaza. Russia’s ongoing brutal war against Ukraine. We are at a global inflection point that is bigger than party or politics,” he wrote.

Hamas’s terrorist attacks against Israel.
The need for humanitarian assistance in Gaza.
Russia’s ongoing brutal war against Ukraine.

We are at a global inflection point that is bigger than party or politics.

Tonight, I’ll address the nation at 8:00 PM ET from the Oval Office.

Hi there @POTUS , I saw that you now seem to be interested in aiding the humanitarian crisis in Gaza and the West Bank (Palestine) that we are seeing before our very eyes in real time. Can you explain, if you are aware, why you would veto a resolution for a ceasefire? How many… https://t.co/LfGCDNDnY6

When visiting The Hebrew University a decade ago where I have funded scholarships for both Arabs and Jews, I said, “Human dignity means giving all people a voice… It’s only through dialogue that people and countries can come together.”

This post will be controversial for some. At this point, breathing is controversial. I am getting many threats because people mistakenly believe I am flying Israeli flags in my show. I am not. I have been using Poi flags since the beginning of this tour. These were used many,…
