Jerusalem,   News


Israel is at war. We didn't want this war, it was forced on us on most brutal and savage way. Even though Israel did not start this war, Israel  will finish it. Once the Jewish people were stateless, once the Jewish people were defenceless, no longer.

Once the Hamas people have attacked us, they will realize they have made a mistake of historic proportions. We will exert the price that will be remembered by them and other Israeli enemies for decades to come.

The savage attacks that Hamas pepetrated on Israeli population is mind boggling. Slaughtering families in their homes, massercering hundreds of young people at an outdoor festival



Kidnapping scores of children, women and elderly even holocaust survivors. Hamas terrorists  bound burnt and executed children. They are savages.

Hamas is ISIS and just as forces of justice and civilisation is united to defeat ISIS, the forces of civilisation must support Isreal in defeating Hamas.

I want to thank President Biden for his unequivocal support,  I want to thank leaders across the world who are standing with Israel today. I want to thank people and congress of the United States of America.

In fighting Hamas, Israel is not only fighting for his own people, it is fighting for every country that stands against barbarism. Israel will win this war, and when Israel wins, the entire civilisation wins.


Background 

Gaza-based resistance group Hamas early Saturday launched Operation Al-Aqsa Flood against Israel, firing a barrage of rockets. It said the surprise attack was in response to the storming of Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied East Jerusalem and growing settler violence.

In retaliation, the Israeli army launched Operation Swords of Iron against Hamas in the Gaza Strip.

The number of Palestinians killed by Israeli forces in Gaza has risen to 687, the Gaza-based Health Ministry said on Monday amid ongoing fighting. It also said the number of injured surged to 2,900.

At least 900 Israelis have been killed and over 2,616 others wounded in the fighting, according to local media.
