Michael Rubin to Israel: 'Deliver' Death to Hamas

Tuesday, 08 Jul 2014 06:34 PM

Rocket attacks launched Tuesday by Hamas against Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Haifa must be answered swiftly and definitively by the Israeli military, says Michael Rubin, a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute.

"It looks like the Israelis have no choice but to move into the Gaza Strip to try to eradicate the terror infrastructure,'' Rubin told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV on Tuesday.

"What Hamas is doing shouldn't surprise anyone. They've embraced the Islamic republic of Iran, [and] part of their charter calls for the death not of Israelis, but of Jews.''

Rubin, who is also a senior lecturer at the Naval Postgraduate School, blames the Obama administration, in part, for the attacks.

"We can thank the American taxpayer in part for this because the Obama administration decided to continue to fund the coalition government that Palestinian [Authority] President Mahmoud Abbas went into with Hamas,'' he said.

"If Hamas fires rockets at Israel, that's a declaration of war, and the best way for war to end is for one side to be roundly defeated, the wrong side to be roundly defeated, the evil side to be roundly defeated.

"[Israel] should do what's necessary to Hamas. Hamas wants to fight to the death. Well, let the Israelis deliver them to that.''
