A bit long but a good understanding of Biden WH stance

Lots to disagree with, but it's certainly more cogent than anything Biden has been able to explain, thanks for posting.

Some things I don’t understand:
With Sinwar AWOL, what does Hamas chain of command look like? Can the leaders in Qatar even communicate down the chain of command if a ceasefire is negotiated? Is there even a chain of command in Gaza (without Sinwar) that can facilitate the release of hostages if a deal is reached?

Perhaps nobody knows the answers, but I haven’t seen much discussion about this other than the suggestion that the “price” for releasing the hostages will go down with Sinwar out of the picture.

Am I the only one thinking that maybe they caught (or killed) Sinwar and keeping it under wraps for some reason? I could think of quite a few reasons why they may want to keep it quiet.

One theory I heard is that they are waiting for DNA tests to come back.

They're actively looking for new leadership, if you know of any leads.

They're not entirely sure if he’s been killed or moved out.

The Bibas family in the early days in Gaza.
Hashem should watch over them.

I guess this is directly related to the war, so I'll post it here:

Halevai this is true and merely an understatement!

Indeed, though he deserves to die via an IDF bullet or be executed publicly.
