Hamas’ terrorist attack on Israel serves as a reminder of the threat posed by Iran, according to Sen. Joni Ernst, who made remarks on Monday at a gathering on Capitol Hill.
Ernst, a Republican from Iowa, stated at a Heritage Foundation event that the Biden administration’s actions towards Iran resulted in the unforeseen attack on Israel by Hamas on October 7. This attack led to the killing of approximately 1,400 civilians.
It is essential that we keep backing Israel, now more than ever, Ernst said, while demonstrating that the terrorist attack was distinct and more severe than what Israel encountered before.
The attacks by Hamas were horrific, she said, but what should not be overlooked is the necessity for the U.S. to deal with the threat of Iran.
Without the backing of the Islamic Republic of Iran, this savagery would not have been conceivable. But President Joe Biden may still give Iran $6 billion.
Iran has provided Hamas with funding and assistance for years. Hamas, the political group in the Gaza Strip, receives funding from Iran. The missiles that Hamas fires against Israeli cities were helped to be manufactured by Iran. Hamas’s armed drone attacks on Israeli civilians are made possible thanks to Iran’s training of Hamas pilots. Most of the Hamas attackers who have committed crimes against Israel were trained in Iran.
Ernst said that this massive sum was used to finance Hamas and various other Palestinian terrorist organizations.
She stressed the need to enlist the support of the other countries that, together with Israel, signed the Abraham Accords.
Iran’s greatest fear, according to Ernst, is peace.
According to the Montgomery Advertiser, when President Trump was in charge. Whether you admired or despised him, his goal of achieving peace via superior might was undeniable. Iran restrained itself under Trump, while Russia was reined in. In Europe and the Middle East, peace reigned.
The Abraham Accords didn’t happen by chance. It was the product of a strategy of strength, rather than appeasement, in international relations.
