Biden sheds crocodile tears while supporting genocide

The term “to shed crocodile tears” derives from the fact that crocodiles have been noted to shed tears as they consume their victims.

O prazo de 10 de Março para o ataque a Rafah já passou e o ataque ainda não aconteceu. Será que Netanyahu está tendo dúvidas? A resposta para isso é claramente não. O governo israelense está manobrando sob pressão externa, em particular da administração dos EUA, ao mesmo tempo em que se encontra internamente dividido. A pressão dos EUA se deve a preocupações humanitárias por parte de Biden? A resposta, novamente, é não. Os EUA continuam a apoiar Israel no seu ataque genocida ao povo palestino, como testemunha o aumento da sua ajuda militar. Então, por que a demora no ataque?
