Netanyahu's Christmas Message: Unite with Israel in Battle Against Barbarism
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu used his Christmas greeting this year to condemn Hamas and call on the Christian community to support Israel in its battle against terrorism.
“Christmas is supposed to be a time of goodwill to all men and peace on Earth,” the prime minister said in a video he posted on X. “Well, we don’t have peace on Earth, not in our part anyway, and we certainly don’t see the goodwill to all men.”
“We’re facing monsters, monsters who murdered children in front of their parents and parents in front of their children, who raped and beheaded women, who burned babies alive, who took babies hostages,” he continued.
“This is a battle, not only of Israel against these barbarians but of civilization against barbarism.” Netanyahu thanked the Christian community for its prayers and promised to assure them that “as we stand together, we will also prevail.” “We shall win this war and secure our common values and our common future.”
Netanyahu also said, that before there is peace between Israel and the Palestinians, “Hamas must be destroyed, Gaza must be demilitarized, and Palestinian society must be de-radicalized.” (JPost / VFI News)
