According to former US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the only option to save people in the Gaza Strip from a terrorist regime is to destroy and eliminate Hamas. He said that life under Hamas has been terrible and that fighting Hamas as a nation is “something ethical, moral, and good” for American and Israeli citizens alike.
In addition, Pompeo backed President Joe Biden’s support for Israel, which was protested by more than 400 political appointees and employees from almost 40 federal departments in a letter they sent to Biden. All federal employees, he said, should take an oath of loyalty to the Constitution and the President and his administration’s purposes. Employees should be allowed to quit or risk termination if they are unable or unwilling to do so.
Additionally, Pompeo addressed the news reports that claim of an Iranian-affiliated high-ranking Pentagon official’s plot to depose the principal resistance organization in Iran, as reported by Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. Despite concerns about Iran’s assistance for terrorist groups like Hezbollah and Hamas and their potential actions along the southern border of the United States, he said that the Biden administration has long had a soft spot for Iran’s Islamic Republican.
Despite his support for Biden’s stance on Israel, Pompeo slammed the Biden administration for allowing millions of individuals to enter the US without tracking their whereabouts. He warned that the danger of not knowing who enters the nation is serious.
After the “diplomatic pause” and the release of hostages abducted in the October 7th strike, Pompeo told Fox News presenter Dana Perino that Israel must continue with its aim to “annihilate” Hamas in the Gaza Strip. He was confident that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Israel’s security services grasped the mission’s objective: to eradicate Hamas.
According to Pompeo, Hamas can avoid such challenges because its members do not see human life as valuable. He claimed that the Hamas leaders aren’t suffering from the agonizing choice Israel must make; instead, they are only concerned with murder, devastation, and rape. The reason these hostages are returning to their families is that the Israelis have done an incredible job of putting pressure on the leadership of Hamas for the last six weeks and more, he added; therefore, they must keep up their efforts.
