If things go as Sen. Lindsey Graham wants them to, Israel is going to score a major victory.
The Republican Senator from South Carolina recently went on CNN and told the public that it's going to take a similar approach to America's World War II endgame to destroy Hamas and keep Israel and the rest of our allies safe.
"This was a coordinated land-sea-air attack that had months into making," Graham said. "There’s no way in the world that this happened without Iran knowing. If you know the relationship between Iran and Hamas, that’s impossible to believe. I think The Wall Street Journal’s reporting will prove to be correct over time. But try to put this in context. You had a lot of people on the show that broke your heart. Here’s where Israel finds itself. It’s almost like World War II."
"Gaza has been radicalized over generations," Graham continued. "I think we can do business with the Palestinian Authority. We can’t do business with Hamas. So, Israel is going to have to go in and dismantle Hamas, like we took down the Germans and the Japanese. They’re going to have to reoccupy the Gaza Strip and build up a new generation that will be better for the Palestinian people in Gaza and better for Israel. It’s going to take a destruction of Hamas like we destroyed the Third Reich and a reoccupation to get a new generation of people who really do buy into peace. And as long as Iran goes unchecked, nothing changes." He went on:
If you don’t get the connection between Iran and this terrorist activity by Hamas and Hezbollah, you’re missing a lot. This is a terrorist state that has American blood on its hands. It is now time to dismantle the financing system of terrorism if this war escalates. Yes, I would do the joint military operation. I would tell the Iranians today if the war escalates, you will pay a price. You will be out of the oil business.
"I want to be crystal clear on that," Graham concluded. "And if we don’t do that, what do you expect to happen in the future? Do you expect Israel to forgive and forget? Biden didn’t mention one word about Iran today. And I want to support the president. I’m supporting the Saudi-Israel peace deal. Israel made peace with several Arab countries through the Abraham Accords. I want to help the Palestinians we can do business with as part of a Saudi-Israel peace deal. But I’m tired of letting Iran — I think they did this to stop the Saudi Arabia peace negotiations, the Iranians. I don’t want to reward them. I want to punish them."
It's important to share the news to spread the truth. Most people won't.
