Two South Carolina politicians spoke in particularly blunt terms about Israel destroying Hamas.
“As far as I’m concerned, Israel should do whatever it takes, as long as it takes, to destroy this threat,” wrote Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.).
“It is in America’s interest for Israel, one of our best allies in the world, to survive and flourish against efforts to destroy them by radical Islamic terrorists,” Graham said. “There should be no time limit or conditions set on Israel’s response to Hamas’ invasion.”
Nikki Haley, a former South Carolina governor, who is currently running for president (and who is a former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations), said in a Fox News interview on Saturday that Hamas “should have hell to pay.”
“I’ll say this to Prime Minister [Benjamin] Netanyahu: Finish them. Finish them,” Haley said. “Hamas did this. You know Iran’s behind it, finish them. They should have hell to pay for what they’ve just done.”
