Breakout – Israel and Hamas Clash

In this episode of the Breakout with Newt Gingrich podcast, Newt discusses the
conflict between Israel and Hamas. Rockets launched by Hamas from the Gaza
Strip continue to rain down on Israel each day with no end in sight. Israel has the
right to defend itself from these attacks using modern technology in order to defeat
an enemy in Hamas, whose ultimate goal is the destruction of Israel. Can you imagine
a major American city being under constant threat of rocket attacks? American citizens
would never tolerate this and Israeli citizens should not have to tolerate it either. Any
sort of peace in the region is only possible if Hamas is disarmed and unable to carry out
these attacks. Until this occurs, Israel will remain under constant attack and will respond
with force in order to protect its civilians.
