UPDATE: 5:30 p.m. ET
U.S. Special Forces, including SEAL Team Six and Delta Force, are ready -- if called upon -- to rescue American hostages in Gaza. According to The Messenger News, two senior U.S. military officials say the elite fighting squads are only a few hours away from Israel by plane:
"Sources described these troops as 'door kickers,' who could conduct a rescue effort themselves, if ordered. For the moment, there is no indication that U.S. forces will aid in any operations on the ground in Israel, the sources said."
That's not the only bad news for Hamas. This morning, an Israel Defense Forces spokesman made a shocking statement to CBN News. He insisted the fighting in Gaza will end "once the last Hamas terrorist is either dead or has surrendered and we will have dismantled Hamas' military capabilities."

P.S. To read the national Statement of Support for the Holy Land, see our earlier Israel Update below. We also share excerpts from Joe's speech yesterday, condemning the "slaughter" and expressing his unequivocal support for Israel. Please keep reading to learn more, or go here now to declare: "I Stand With Israel!"
Joe finally made his first public comments about this weekend's horrific attacks on Israeli civilians, which have claimed more than 1,200 lives. The so-called "Commander-in-Chief" was 90 minutes late for his 10-minute address to the nation on Tuesday afternoon.
But the atrocities being committed by Hamas terrorists are heinous enough for him to go against several of his Democrat colleagues. He unequivocally denounced the "slaughter" in Israel and declared his support for the Jewish state. Here are some excerpts from yesterday's speech at the White House:
"There are moments in his life, and I mean this literally, when the pure unadulterated evil is unleashed on this world. The people of Israel lived through one such moment this weekend. The bloody hands of the terrorist organization, Hamas, a group who stated purpose for being is to kill Jews. This was an act of sheer evil. ...
"It's abhorrent. The brutality of Hamas — this bloodthirstiness brings to mind the worst — the worst rampages of ISIS. This is terrorism. ...
"So, in this moment, we must be crystal clear: We stand with Israel. We stand with Israel. And we will make sure Israel has what it needs to take care of its citizens, defend itself, and respond to this attack."
Joe shuffled away from the podium without answering any questions, even though the American death toll in Israel has climbed to 14. Some 20 U.S. citizens are missing and others are expected to be among the more than 100 hostages held by Hamas terrorists in Gaza.
Still, Joe declared his support for Israel. Will you?
