Biden: Overwhelming majority of Palestinians are not Hamas, they also suffer from group’s terror

US President Joe Biden posts a tweet saying that the “overwhelming majority of Palestinians are not Hamas” and that “Hamas does not represent the Palestinian people.”

“In fact, they’re also suffering as a result of Hamas’ terrorism. We need to be clear-eyed about that reality,” he writes.

The US has been pressing for an agreement that would bring about a pause in fighting in the Israel-Hamas war, triggered by Hamas’s October 7 massacre, and a release of the remaining hostages held by the terror group in Gaza.

The US this week vetoed a third UN Security Council Resolution calling for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza, arguing that it could interfere with efforts to work on a deal.
