Former Israeli counterterrorism operative Aaron Cohen said President Joe Biden was being “completely manipulated” by “psychological warfare” from Hamas.
Israel agreed to extend its cease-fire with the radical Islamic terrorist group by two days after multiple groups of hostages were released beginning Friday. Hamas took the hostages when it carried out a deadly terrorist attack on multiple locations in southern Israel Oct. 7, killing over 1,400 people.

“It is no secret that Hamas is using this time right now to regroup, rearm, rest up, figure out where they’re going to get those dollars and funds from, to continue getting missiles out up into Israel,” Cohen told Fox Business host Larry Kudlow. “But here is where I am at with this, Larry. This one will sting the White House a little bit. You know me, I don’t get political, but here is where I’m at: President Biden right now is being manipulated through psychological warfare by Hamas.”
Biden has come under fire from young voters over his support of Israel since the Oct. 7 attack. Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and other left-wing members of the House of Representatives known as “The Squad” released statements calling for a ceasefire almost immediately after Israel began its response to the attack.
“The president is being completely manipulated right now via psychological warfare. That is what’s happening. Israel needs to get back to work, the IDF is ready to get back to work. The IDF has done an incredible job. They will be teaching the Israeli campaign at war colleges for years to come because Israel’s been so systemically successful,” Cohen said.
“The numbers put out by World Health Organization are given to them by Hamas. The 15,000 so-called… Palestinian civilians kill in airstrikes in the campaign is completely [exaggerated]. The fact is that many of them, if not more than 50, 60, 70% of them are likely Hamas militants. 40% of the youth in Gaza is between the ages of 17 and 34, which is Hamas fighting age and Hamas is gonna sprinkle those numbers in. The truth is, again, Larry, world knows Hamas is twisting and manipulating. What I’m surprised is that Biden and his people his team edge allowed them to infiltrate that Oval Office,” Cohen added. “He needs to get his head straight.”
IMPORTANT NOTE TO WND READERS: Shortly after Hamas terrorists fired over 5,000 rockets from Gaza into Israel on Oct. 7 and then proceeded to attack the Jewish state by land, sea and air – torturing, burning, beheading and murdering well over a thousand people, including women, children and infants, and wounding and abducting hundreds more – world reaction was, in its own way, almost equally shocking.
For after the biggest one-day mass slaughter of Jews since the Nazi Holocaust, what followed was an outpouring of celebratory demonstrations, unbridled Jew-hatred, deliriously gleeful support for Hamas and bitter condemnation of the nation of Israel. Not just in the Arab-Muslim world, but throughout the Western world as well, including all across America.
Why? What is behind the explosion of anti-Israel, anti-Jewish, pro-terror sentiment in the United States, where Israel has long been one of America's closest friends and allies? Why are hordes of young "woke" LGBT demonstrators marching in support of Hamas – when Hamas wouldn't think twice about binding and blindfolding them and throwing them off the roof of a tall building – as they routinely do in the Muslim world?
It turns out there's one area of agreement that is so powerful, deep-seated and all-consuming that the vast differences between the deranged left and the murderous jihadists melt away into Kumbaya harmony.
All of this and much more is completely exposed in November's issue of WND's critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled ISRAEL VS. GLOBAL JIHAD: How Jew-hatred, radical Islam and Leftism are pushing us toward World War III. Beyond a deeply insightful dive into why leftists are surging toward radical Islam – which hates and dreams of raping and butchering them – this Whistleblower issue includes fantastic articles by everyone from top Israeli analyst (and former Israel Defense Forces officer) Caroline Glick to Harvest Christian Fellowship's Pastor Greg Laurie on the current war in Israel and biblical prophecies regarding the End Times … which he says are now upon us.
