Former President Donald Trump accused the Biden administration of indirectly funding the recent devastating attacks on Israel. The claim suggests American taxpayer dollars were used to support these violent acts, igniting a wave of controversy and concern.
The brutal assault on Israel, reportedly the worst since the Second Intifada, was orchestrated by the terror organization Hamas. The attack resulted in the tragic loss of at least 700 to 1,000 lives and left over 2,000 Israelis wounded.
This horrific event raised questions about the role of the Biden administration in indirectly funding these attacks.

South Carolina Republican Senator Tim Scott echoed Trump’s sentiments, stating that the Biden administration “funded these attacks on Israel.” He further emphasized this act was not just an attack on Israel but an assault on Western civilization.
Scott’s statement highlighted the belief that America’s perceived weakness is an invitation for bad actors to strike, with Iran, the biggest funder of Hamas, being a prime example.
Reports suggest that the Biden administration released $6 billion to Tehran in September, a move that Richard Goldberg of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies labeled as “the largest hostage ransom payment in American history.”
This funding, according to critics, has had dire consequences, with the recent attacks on Israel being a prime example.
Further adding to the controversy, it was reported that US weapons left in the hands of the Taliban in Afghanistan were also used in the attack on Israel. This information adds another layer of complexity to the situation, raising questions about the Biden administration’s foreign policy decisions.

In contrast, during his tenure, Trump cut funding to the Palestinian terror entity in 2018. However, in 2021, Biden restored $235 million in US taxpayer funding for the Palestinian state and the Hamas-dominated “refugee agency” UNRWA.
Critics argue this decision indirectly contributed to the recent attacks on Israel.
The situation is further complicated by reports of American citizens being killed and kidnapped during the attack. US Secretary of State Antony Blinken confirmed these reports but did not provide specific figures.
Among those affected was 23-year-old American Hersh Goldberg-Polin, who went missing after the attack on the Supernova festival.
The recent attacks on Israel sparked a heated debate about the role of the Biden administration’s funding decisions. Critics, including former President Trump and Senator Tim Scott, argue these decisions indirectly supported the actions of terror organizations like Hamas.
As the situation continues to unfold, it remains to be seen how the Biden administration will respond to these allegations.
