We rightly support Israel as it recaptures its territory, defeats Hamas terrorists, and recovers the hostages from across the world.
The barbaric actions of Hamas who targeted innocent Israelis for attack and murder, including women, the elderly, and even horrific atrocities against babies in their cribs, requires decisive action to ensure this never is allowed to happen again. As we support Israel in these efforts to destroy Hamas once for all, we cannot forget that none of this would be possible without the support of their patrons in Iran.
Iran’s long-running relationship with Hamas is no secret. While often differing politically, both Hamas and Tehran share an interest in attacking Israel, weakening the Israeli Defense Forces, and undermining the country’s security at every turn. Tehran provides material assistance in terms of money and arms, training and advice, and quite possibly direct operational support in this latest attack. In fact, Iran’s parliament was seen on the day of the barbaric attack chanting not only “Death to Israel,” but also “Death to America.”
