Scott Campaign Press Release - Tim Scott: Hamas' Objective Is To Eliminate Every Jew

October 17, 2023

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Tim Scott joined The Lead with Jake Tapper to denounce the atrocities conducted by Hamas on the Israeli people. Tim condemned growing anti-Semitism and supported the effort to wipe out Hamas.


Jake Tapper: So let's talk about the conflict in the Middle East. We're still learning more about the cause of this hospital blast. It's believed to have killed hundreds of people in Gaza. If you were president of the United States right now, how do you think you would be handling this crisis?

Tim Scott: Well, the first thing you do is make sure that there's no daylight between America and Israel. I would say standing shoulder to shoulder and back to back with no daylight is so important. And what we saw is an atrocity that just makes your heart sick. Evil brought upon the Jewish people in Israel with Hamas' objective to eliminate Jews on earth, not just Israel, but everywhere. There are 6 million in America. We've seen anti-Semitism continue to grow. We have a lot of work to do. One of the ways that we help is to make sure that we support Prime Minister Netanyahu's efforts in wiping Hamas off the map. I'm thankful for the way that he has started the process, which is to send the signal into Gaza to get out. Being very specific gives civilians an access opportunity. A way out is something that was not afforded to the people of Israel.
