With all of the news coming out of Israel, you probably have a lot of questions about what is going on. Today’s show gets into everything you need to know.
Morning Hamas launched a terrorist attack on Israel during the Jewish high holiday of Simchat Torah. The attack included Hamas invading more than 20 Israeli communities along the Gaza border – where they kidnapped hundreds of Israelis and engaged in gun battles.
Netanyahu subsequently declared that Israel was at war.
So what led to this attack?
It is reported that Hamas militants launched "
Operation Al-Aqsa Flood
," as retaliation for Israel’s "desecration" of the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Israel struck back with a
named "Operation Swords of Iron."
The Biden administration has made it clear that not a
cent of the $6 billion it sent to Tehran last month helped fund this attack.
However, the Wall Street Journal has
that Iranian officials, in a series of meetings in Beirut, helped plan the assault while the country was negotiating the hostage deal.
"Iran, who provides $100 million annually to Hamas, celebrated Hamas's attack calling it a 'proud operation,'" Crowder said.
Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei took to X
to show his support for Hamas.
“God willing, the cancer of the usurper Zionist regime will be eradicated at the hands of the Palestinian people and the Resistance forces throughout the region. #AlAqsaStorm,” Khamenei posted.
Although America did not want this to happen, there is some involvement that may have contributed to this.
“I am not saying that America wanted this to happen. [But] you do have to accept the fact that we are so intertwined with bad actors across the globe right now and at some point, we are going to need to scale it all back. And we definitely had a role in all this. Not in targeting innocent people. But unfortunately, in one way or another, [America] supports nations that are evil. Let’s be honest, they are founded upon evil” Crowder said.
Crowder added, “Hamas is evil. You cannot give money to the Iranians or even allow money to be used by the Iranians, allow it to go to Hamas, and then condemn it.”
Multiple reports are claiming that Iran had nothing to do with the attack and that the “humanitarian” funds from the United States did not subsequently help fund this.
There really is no way for the United States to confirm that the money went to “humanitarian” efforts.
The funds were under the oversight of the Quartis. Ironically, Hamas leadership is headquartered in Quarti.
Now compare how the Biden Administration dealt with Iran compared to the Trump Administration.
The media is also trying to gaslight the public that pulling out of Afghanistan was handled well.
But how do we know that this emboldens Hamas? Well, because they said so.
the Taliban for causing America's 'downfall' in Afghanistan.
All that said, does any of this affect us?
At least nine Americans were killed in this situation and there are at least 200,000 dual U.S. citizens living in Israel.
Israel is also a strong force against terrorists in that region. And the U.S.-Israeli alliance contributes to American
Israel is also crucial in containing Iran.
“That is probably the biggest threat out there as far as radical terrorism in the modern world,” Crowder said.
Israel has carried out
strikes on Iran’s nuclear program. Israel also killed Iran’s top nuclear scientist.
“If God were to give the earth an enemy, he would stick the hose in that area of the world. [Israel] knows how important it is to contain Iran,” Crowder said.
But what should Israel do about all this at this point?
“I think that the only thing that Israel can do at this point is kill every last member of Hamas and its supporters. And at the same time, the United States puts an absolute strangle hold on anyone who would even allow the thought to cross his mind of sending some money to those evil pricks. I think that is the only thing we can do right now if you want some kind of a truce,” Crowder said.
