Obama Slams Israel for “Dismantling” Hamas and “Ignoring Human Costs”

Former President Barack Obama has criticized Israel for the way it is “dismantling” the Palestinian terror organization Hamas.

In a statement Monday, Obama wrote:

“As I stated in an earlier post, Israel has a right to defend its citizens against such wanton violence, and I fully support President Biden’s call for the United States to support our long-time ally in going after Hamas, dismantling its military capabilities, and facilitating the safe return of hundreds of hostages to their families.”

“But even as we support Israel, we should also be clear that how Israel prosecutes this fight against Hamas matters,” Obama said.

“Still, the world is watching closely as events in the region unfold, and any Israeli military strategy that ignores the human costs could ultimately backfire.”

“Already, thousands of Palestinians have been killed in the bombing of Gaza, many of them children. Hundreds of thousands have been forced from their homes.”

“The Israeli government’s decision to cut off food, water and electricity to a captive civilian population threatens not only to worsen a growing humanitarian crisis.”

“It could further harden Palestinian attitudes for generations, erode global support for Israel, play into the hands of Israel’s enemies, and undermine long-term efforts to achieve peace and stability in the region.”

Experts recently noted that a siege of Gaza would be lawful under international law.

Meanwhile, Israel’s ceremonial President, Isaac Herzog, also noted that Gaza obtains only 7% of its water from Israel.

Obama failed to mention Israel’s long record of upholding human rights and international humanitarian law in the war against terrorists.

As Harvard Law School professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz has said:

“No other country with comparable internal and external threats has as good a human rights record as Israel.”

But Obama’s own approach to terrorism came under fire while he served as President.

Foreign Affairs wrote:

“[W]hereas [George W.] Bush’s approach was sometimes marred by an overly aggressive posture, Obama has sometimes erred too far in the other direction, seeming prone to idealism and wishful thinking.”

“This has hampered his administration’s efforts to combat the terrorist threat: despite Obama’s laudable attempts to calibrate Washington’s response, the American people find themselves living in a world plagued with more terrorism than before Obama took office, not less.”

Following a hasty retreat from Iraq, Obama allowed the rise of ISIS and the so-called “Islamic State.”

However, things haven’t changed much under the Biden administration.

As The Daily Fetched reported on Monday, federal officials are warning that Hamas and Hezbollah terrorists are infiltrating the US through Joe Biden’s wide open border.

A memo obtained by The Daily Caller from the San Diego Field Office Intelligence Division of Customs and Border Protection showed assessments that terrorists are transiting via the Southwest border.

The memo states:

“San Diego Field Office Intelligence Unit assesses that individuals inspired by, or reacting to the current Israel-Hamas conflict may attempt travel to or from the area of hostilities in the Middle East via circuitous transit across the Southwest border.”

“Foreign fighters motivated by ideology or mercenary soldiers of fortune may attempt to obfuscate travel to or from the US to or from countries in the Middle East through Mexico,” the memo reads.
