Shmuel Sackett: Israel Must Crush Hamas Once and for All

The terror group Hamas must be "defeated once and for all'' to ensure the future of the Jewish state of Israel, says Shmuel Sackett, co-founder of the Jewish leadership movement Manhigut Yehudit.

"They're a bunch of thugs, they are not prepared to fight us man-to-man. They are a bunch of hooligans who are trying to wreak havoc on the Jewish world and on the Western world as well,'' Sackett said Wednesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"We saw what their partners did right here in [the United States] on 9/11 . . . They are fighting a religious war, they are not interested in engaging in so-called the regular rules of war, and they use their own civilians as human shields.

"We need to hit them hard until they surrender, until they are defeated once and for all.''

Israel and Hamas are in the middle of a 72-hour ceasefire in their war in Gaza — one that appears to be holding. Nearly 1,900 Palestinians have been killed since the fighting erupted July 8. Sixty-four Israeli soldiers have died.

Sackett was co-founder with Moshe Feiglin of Zo Artzeinu, a 1990s protest movement created to block Israeli land concessions to Arabs.

He is now supporting Feiglin — deputy speaker of the Knesset, the legislative branch of the Israeli government — for Israeli prime minister against Benjamin Netanyahu.

Sackett does not think the Israelis should end military operations in Gaza.

"Every single person knows that in one, maximum two, years we're going to be at it again,'' he said.

"Only this time the missiles they send them to Israel may have chemical warheads . . . For 20 years, I've served in an anti-chemical warfare unit in the army, and we're expected to see serious action in the coming years because we didn't finish the job.

"You start a war, you finish it, and Netanyahu showed that he is actually quite weak, he did not do what was required.''
