Top Hamas Official Ghazi Hamad said during a recent interview that the terrorist organization was ready to launch as many repeats of their October 7 terrorist attack, dubbed the “Al-Aqsa Flood,” as needed until everyone is Israel is murdered.
Hamad made the remarks during an interview late last month on LBC TV, a Lebanese news channel, after Hamas terrorists murdered 1,400 Israelis, wounded 5,300+, and kidnapped approximately 240.
“Israel is a country that has no place on our land,” he declared. “We must remove that country, because it constitutes a security, military, and political catastrophe to the Arab and Islamic nation, and must be finished. We are not ashamed to say this, with full force.”
“We must teach Israel a lesson, and we will do this again and again,” he said.
“The Al-Aqsa Flood is just the first time, and there will be a second, a third, a fourth, because we have the determination, the resolve, and the capabilities to fight. Will we have to pay a price? Yes, and we are ready to pay it. We are called a nation of martyrs, and we are proud to sacrifice martyrs.”
Later in the interview, he said that “the occupation must come to an end,” adding that he was not just talking about Gaza, but all of what he claimed were “the Palestinian lands.”
“Does that mean the annihilation of Israel?” the news anchor asked.
He responded, “Yes, of course.”
“The existence of Israel is illogical,” he concluded. “The existence of Israel is what causes all that pain, blood, and tears. It is Israel, not us. We are the victims of the occupation. Period. Therefore, nobody should blame us for the things we do. On October 7, October 10, October 1,000,000 – everything we do is justified.”
