Amid the war ongoing in Gaza strip, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has gone ahead and addressed the foreign media explaining the Jewish country’s perspective.
He said, “The horrors that Hamas perpetrated on October 7, remind us that we will not realize the promise of a better future unless we, the civilized world, are willing to fight the barbarians because the barbarians are willing to fight us…This is a turning point, a turning point for leaders and nations. It is time for all of us to decide if we are willing to fight for a future of hope and promise or surrender to tyranny and terror. Now rest assured, Israel will fight. Since October 7, Israel has been at war. Israel did not start this war. Israel did not want this war. But Israel will win this war…”
He went on to recall that just as the United States would not agree to a ceasefire after the bombing of Pearl Harbor or after the terrorist attack of 9/11, Israel will not agree to a cessation of hostilities with Hamas after the horrific attacks of October 7th.
