Biden urges global condemnation of Hamas 'sexual violence'

Biden urges global condemnation of Hamas 'sexual violence'

AFP Tue, December 5, 2023 at 2:36 PM CST

US President Joe Biden called on Tuesday for global condemnation of what he said was "horrific" sexual violence by Hamas during the October 7 attacks on Israel.

Biden's comments come after campaigners in Israel have derided what they see as a muted international response to gender-based violence during the attack.

"The world can't just look away at what’s going on," Biden said at a campaign event in Boston.

"It’s on all of us -- government, international organizations, civil society and businesses -- to forcefully condemn the sexual violence of Hamas terrorists without equivocation."

Any of the raped women and children that lived through it, would be expected to birth the rapist child. And our religious leaders, like our House Speaker, would call the Pregnancies a blessing from God.

This morning was about a pregnant woman whose abdomen was bludgeoned, fetus mutilated, and left to bleed to death. 😡
