Sen. Graham: 2-State Like Recognizing Germans in Holocaust

By    |   Sunday, 04 February 2024 04:07 PM EST

Count Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., firmly on the side of Israel in its objectives in the war on Hamas — and against the reported pushing of President Joe Biden's administration for a two-state solution.

"I think it is irresponsible and dangerous to unilaterally recognize a Palestinian state until you first achieve peace with Israel," Graham told "Fox News Sunday." "It would be like recognizing the Germans in the middle of the Holocaust."

Hamas' Oct. 7 attack on Israel showed Gazans are not reliable neighbors.

"They raped women. They put babies in ovens. We will not reward them for that attack," he continued.

The Biden administration has "done a very good job" in trying to persuade Saudi Arabia and Israel to end the "Arab-Israeli conflict," but after a massive terrorist attack, the timing is wrong  to force a two-state solution.

"We need to deal with the Palestinian issue, but nobody in Israel is going to recognize a Palestinian state until there's first peace with Israel. 

"Nobody in Israel is going to reward this attack. Nobody's going to give the Palestinians a state after being slaughtered by Hamas."

U.K. Secretary of State David Cameron is pushing for a two-state solution, too, but Graham says he has "it backward," calling it a "horribly bad idea."
