  1. Satanyahu and his IDF are running berserk and showing Biden and everyone that he is unstoppable. Besides the world do not know actually that what’s being done now in Gaza is just pure drama between this Satan and the other Satans-backers in the USA, Germany Nazis et al. The Resistance has our prayers that God Allah will soon grant them victory for Free Palestine despite the Judases in the present PA.
