While US President Joe Biden is repeatedly talking about saving “civilians in Gaza” by sending aid worth hundreds of millions of dollars, according to experts, more than 73 percent of Gazans are directly or indirectly affiliated with Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad and other militancy outfits, while remaining 27 percent are notoriously anti-Semite. When on October 7, 2023 over 1,400 Israelis and foreign nationals were slaughtered, thousands injured and hundreds abducted by Hamas, Gazans were celebrating – distributing candy and chanting “death to Israel” slogan.
For this reason, we have been continuously opposing the idea of sending any aid to Gaza, at least until the hostages are released. At the same time, we are opposing the idea of a ceasefire, as we believe such decisions would only benefit the terrorist agenda of Palestinian terrorists. Following October 7 Hamas pogrom – the only option left is total annihilation of Hamas and Palestinian terrorists and liberate Gaza from the captivity of terrorists. In this regard, we are delighted knowing a senior Israeli official told CNN that there will be “no ceasefire” in Gaza amid US and Qatari efforts to free more than 200 hostages held there by Hamas.
The official said they were “not aware” of US calls for a delay to Israel’s expected Gaza ground operation, and said both Israel and the US want all the hostages released “as quickly as possible”.
At the same time, the official stressed, “humanitarian efforts cannot be allowed to impact the mission to dismantle Hamas”.
Earlier CNN reported that the US government has pressed Israel to delay its imminent ground offensive in the Gaza Strip to allow for the release of more Hamas hostages and aid into Gaza.
Meanwhile, according to media reports, US President Joe Biden spoke with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to discuss developments in Gaza and in the surrounding region.
A statement from the White House summarizing the call said, “The President welcomed the first two convoys of humanitarian assistance since Hamas’s October 7 terrorist attack, which crossed the border into Gaza and is being distributed to Palestinians in need”.
“The leaders affirmed that there will now be continued flow of this critical assistance into Gaza. The President expressed appreciation for Israel’s support in helping to accommodate the release of two American hostages”, the statement added.
Israel’s National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir criticized the agreement and said, “Any agreement on continuous aid to Gaza that does not include the release of all our hostages is the continuation of the concept that led us to where we are. Humanitarian only in exchange for the release of all the hostages”.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Office then clarified that “Israel will not provide any humanitarian aid to Gaza and will prevent any unsupervised supplies from others”.
Meanwhile in an interview, Israel’s President Isaac Herzog revealed materials found on the bodies of Hamas terrorists, including training materials for the use of chemical warfare agents, intended to be used by the terrorist organization in its murderous rampage against innocent civilians.
A USB key found on the body of a Hamas terrorist who infiltrated Israeli territory was found to contain detailed instructions on creating chemical weapons and implementing their use among the civilian population. The source of the document is a manual from the Al-Qaeda terrorist organization dated 2003, and its discovery indicates both the connection between the organizations and the intention of the Hamas terrorist organization to use chemical weapons to cause mass casualties – as ISIS had planned in the past.
Among the contents of the USB were precise instructions for preparing a device for dispersing cyanide agents, proving further the murderous intentions of the terrorist organization Hamas to kill anyone regardless of religion, race, or gender.
Cutting off the heads of babies, a manual for abducting captives, and instructions for the use of chemical substances for mass murder are murderous patterns of action that testify to the attempt of the terrorist organization Hamas to trace back to ISIS.
Out of its basic right to protect its independence and the security of its residents, the State of Israel will continue to act against the brutal terrorist organization Hamas.
In the interview, President Herzog said:
“This is material that was found on the body of one of those sadistic villains. It’s Al Qaeda material, official Al Qaeda material. When dealing with ISIS, Al Qaeda, and Hamas, this is what we’re dealing with. And in this material, there were instructions on how to produce chemical weapons.
“What we went through is evil. We have to uproot it, and when you uproot evil, we see people supporting evil, you see them in demonstrations in London or anywhere else in the world. Why are you supporting evil? What’s the story? Do you really believe that human beings need to be tortured? Civilians, pregnant women? Old people with dementia with the caretakers with their medication, people who have done only good. Let me tell you a story – the families around the Gaza Strip the Gaza border of Israel, are the biggest supporters of making peace with the Palestinians. They called me and told me that the father stayed alone day, he went to defend his village, and his wife and the kids were all abducted to Gaza not knowing where they were. This is another example of what we are facing”.
In my opinion, for the sake of Israel’s national security and regional peace, current operations in Gaza should be further intensified in order to totally eliminate Hamas and Palestinian terrorists. Gaza needs to be vacated where only Israeli citizens shall be allowed to reside.
