Israel’s President Isaac Herzog minced no words in describing the “darkness” of the terrorists attacking Israel and called out protesters who are supporting Hamas as “accomplices” to the atrocities.
“It’s a deciding moment in the fate of world affairs,” Herzog told Fox News host Sandra Smith on Monday as he discussed the latest that is happening in the Israel war with Hamas terrorists.
“Because we are faced between a coalition of hate, coalition of, I call it darkness, which is a jihadist coalition which emanates from Tehran, which, with its proxies in Lebanon, in Gaza, of course Hamas, in Yemen with the Houthis and of course, spreading Islamic fundamentalist jihadism all over the world, which wants to erase all of them – all of us,” Herzog continued.
The former opposition leader and Labor Party leader recently wrote to U.S. university presidents about the need to confront and control antisemitism that has run rampant on campuses across the nation. As he continued his interview with Smith, Herzog made reference to anti-Israel protests and those who openly support the Islamist militant group Hamas.
“If Israel weren’t there, then Europe will be next and the United States and for sure next, because they call the United States the Big Satan,” he said.
“And that is why I think those protesters who are supporting Hamas there, they’re actually accomplices to the whole notion that you can butcher young children, that you can chop heads of women, that you can rape women and pregnant women, that you can abduct old age Holocaust survivors and you can do a whole bunch of atrocities,” he continued. “And because you basically support Hamas, that’s what they’ve done.”
Herzog recounted “an immensely moving meeting” with families of more than 40 children – some as young as 10 months old – who are being held hostage by Hamas in Gaza.
“That’s what these protesters are supporting. None of them — today is International Children’s Day. I repeat, today is International Children’s Day — where are all these protesters? Do they demand the immediate release of these children, let alone the entire group of hostages and all those who have gone through the treacherous, horrendous, barbaric attack on the 7th of October?” he demanded.
Smith asked the Israeli president about current negotiations to secure the release of the hostages.
“Biden officials say this hostage deal is closer than it’s been at any other point, including negotiations with the US, Israel, and Qatar officials that dozens of hostages could be freed of the 240 in coming days. What more can you tell us about that right now?” she asked.
“Not much really, because we are all waiting and we are dealing on the opposite side with the leadership of Hamas, led by Yahya Sinwar, who is basically a psychopath in the way he operates,” Herzog replied, referring to the leader of Hamas’s political wing in Gaza.
“So I think that nothing you and I can say really changes the picture,” the president added.
“We are only waiting for what is the basic humanitarian deed, which is releasing the children and the women and, of course, all the rest of the hostages. We have now learned about two hostages that were murdered, murdered in Gaza. We reported about it in the last few days,” he said.
