President Joe Biden, who initially declared his “rock-solid and unwavering” support for Israel, called for a “pause” in the Jewish state’s ground assault in Gaza on Wednesday amid criticism of Israeli airstrikes. Yet, a senior member of Hamas’ Politburo showed exactly why Israel must root out the genocidal terrorist group after the horrific pogrom of Oct. 7, which killed more than 1,400 Israelis.

Ghazi Hamad, a member of Hamas’ political bureau and the group’s former deputy foreign minister, promised that the attack on Oct. 7, in which Hamas terrorists slaughtered civilians and even babies, would happen again and again until the terrorists wipe Israel from the face of the earth.

“We must teach Israel a lesson, and we will do this again and again,” Hamad said, according to an Oct. 24 interview on Lebanese television translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute. “The Al-Aqsa Flood is just the first time, and there will be a second, a third, a fourth, because we have the determination, the resolve, and the capabilities to fight.”

“Israel is a country that has no place on our land,” the Hamas leader stated. “We must remove that country, because it constitutes a security, military, and political catastrophe to the Arab and Islamic nation, and must be finished. We are not ashamed to say this, with full force.”

“We are called a nation of martyrs, and we are proud to sacrifice martyrs,” Hamad added.

The Hamas leader declared that “the occupation must come to an end,” clarifying that he did not just mean Gaza, but “all the Palestinian lands.”

“The existence of Israel is what causes all that pain, blood, and tears,” he added. “It is Israel, not us. We are the victims of the occupation. Period. Therefore, nobody should blame us for the things we do.”

Hamad insisted that Hamas did not intend to attack civilians, but terrorists experienced “complications on the ground.”
