US Senator suggests Israel should be allowed to nuke Gaza like Hiroshima, Nagasaki

Date:



“Why is it OK for America to drop two nuclear bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki to end their existential threat war? Why was it OK for us to do that? I thought it was OK,” Republican Senator Lindsey Graham mentioned.

Comparing the Israel-Hamas struggle with World War II, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham mentioned that the US dropping nuclear bombs on Japan to finish the struggle was the “right decision” and Israel should additionally be given the bombs “they need” to finish the struggle. Graham, a Republican Senator and a staunch supporter of Israel, criticised President Joe Biden for pausing the supply of 3000 heavy bombs to Israel.

During an interview on NBC News on Sunday, Graham mentioned, “When we were faced with destruction as a nation after Pearl Harbor, fighting the Germans and the Japanese, we decided to end the war by the bombing [of] Hiroshima [and] Nagasaki with nuclear weapons…That was the right decision.” He added, “Give Israel the bombs they need to end the war. They can’t afford to lose.”

Further drawing a comparability with the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki — which killed over 2,00,000 individuals and left many extra badly traumatised — the US Senator mentioned that Israel should do “whatever” it has to survive as a ‘Jewish state’. 

“Why is it OK for America to drop two nuclear bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki to end their existential threat war? Why was it OK for us to do that? I thought it was OK,” Graham mentioned.

He added, “So, Israel, do whatever you have to do to survive as a Jewish state. Whatever you have to do.” The Republican Senator additionally argued that Hamas is to blame for civilian casualties all through the battle because it makes use of the civilians within the strip as ‘human shields’.

“I think it’s impossible to mitigate civilian deaths in Gaza as long as Hamas uses their own population as human shields. I’ve never seen in the history of warfare such blatant efforts by an enemy — Hamas — to put civilians at risk,” Graham mentioned. “The last thing you want to do is reward this behaviour.” 

Recently, President Joe Biden paused the supply of 3000 heavy bombs to Israel and vowed to maintain extra offensive weapons if Israeli forces launch a significant operation in Rafah, the place greater than 1,000,000 Palestinians are sheltering.

Biden’s pause on the heavy bombs, his criticism of Israel’s army marketing campaign, and his risk to withhold extra weapons within the occasion of a Rafah invasion come amid sweeping faculty protests within the US and frustration with the struggle from some Democrats and his left flank.
