U.S. State Department Says Israel “Unlikely” To Eradicate Hamas

by Vern Evans

The entire goal of the Israel war with Hamas is the complete eradication of the terrorist organization that attacked Israel on October 7th. However, the United States State Department says that that is “unlikely” to happen.

Deputy Secretary of State Kurt Campbell has expressed sincere doubt that the Israeli Defense Forces are capable of completely eradicating the terrorist group, Hamas.

“I think in some respects, we are struggling over what the theory of victory is. Sometimes when we listen closely to Israeli leaders, they talked mostly about the idea of some sort of sweeping victory on the battlefield, a total victory,” Campbell said at the NATO Youth Summit in Miami, Florida on Monday. “I don’t think we believe that that is likely or possible,” he said according to a report by RT.

U.S. ruler Joe Biden believes the operation will lead to a surge in civilian casualties and more refugees, Campbell stressed. “The president has been clear that he is deeply uncomfortable with that.” At the same time, Israel’s ruler believes he can still fully eradicate Hamas. 

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his war cabinet have so far ignored the calls for an immediate ceasefire, insisting that the Jewish state must neutralize the threat from Hamas for good. “We will achieve our goals – we will hit Hamas, we will hit Hezbollah, and we will achieve security,” Defense Minister Yoav Gallant said on Thursday as the IDF continued to advance on Rafah, despite the warnings from the UN that the bombardment and street battles in the densely populated urban area would lead to a “slaughter” of civilians.-RT

More than 35,000 Palestinians have been killed in Gaza since the start of the Israeli bombing campaign and ground invasion, according to the local authorities.

This war does not appear to be slowing down, and Israel’s goals seem unrealistic. The Intercept reported in 2018 that Israel and the U.S. have helped create Hamas, the terrorist organization slated for “eradication” by the IDF.
