Against the backdrop of its ongoing war, Israel is bracing itself for the upcoming Muslim Ramadan holiday, when tensions and terror attacks frequently flare. Meanwhile, the Biden administration is hoping for a ceasefire in the next week, despite the doubts that prevail in the region.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was reportedly surprised by President Joe Biden’s comments that he hoped for a ceasefire agreement by Monday.

Netanyahu responded in a public video, saying, “Since the start of the war, I have been leading a diplomatic campaign to block pressure designed to end the war prematurely, and to secure strong support for Israel.”

He also noted a recent poll that shows most Americans support Israel.

“Today, a Harvard CAPS-Harris poll was published, which shows that 82% of the American public supports Israel, meaning that four out of five U.S. citizens support Israel and not Hamas. This will help us continue the campaign until total victory.”

Hamas called talk of a ceasefire premature, but the administration continues to express hope for an extended pause in the fighting soon.

National Security Council Spokesman John Kirby noted, “That would allow for several weeks, hopefully up to six, where there would be no fighting so that we can get all the hostages out, increase the flow of humanitarian assistance, but just as critically, get the fighting stopped so that there’s no more civilian casualties and there’s no more damage to civilian infrastructure.”

Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant warns Hamas, with the backing of Iran and its proxy, Hezbollah in Lebanon, wants to use the month of Ramadan beginning in early March to incite Muslims in biblical Judea and Samaria, (the West Bank) and throughout the region toward another October 7th-style attack on Israel.

“The central [plan] of Hamas, to take the event called Ramadan—with an emphasis on the Temple Mount and Jerusalem—and turn it into the second phase of their plan that began on the seventh of October: this is the central plan of Hamas. This is pumped up by Iran and Hezbollah,” Gallant asserted.

The defense minister said it’s important, therefore, to target the terrorists and at the same time try to calm the situation, including not restricting Muslim visits to the Temple Mount during Ramadan, as has been proposed by some in the Israeli government.
