Hillary Clinton Says Netanyahu ‘Should Go’ as Gaza Military Operation Enters Crucial Phase

Hillary Clinton Says Netanyahu ‘Should Go’ as Gaza Military Operation Enters Crucial Phase

Clinton to MSNBC: “Netanyahu should go. He is not a trustworthy leader.” 

Hillary Clinton has called for the ouster of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as the military operation in Gaza enters a crucial phase. Talking to MSNBC on Wednesday, the former Democratic presidential candidate said that the country’s war-time leader “should go” while the terrorist group Hamas still holds more than a hundred Israelis hostage.

“Netanyahu should go. He is not a trustworthy leader,” Clinton claimed in an interview with MSNBC’s Alex Wagner Tonight. “It was on his watch that the [October 7] attack happened. He needs to go, and if he’s an obstacle to a ceasefire, if he’s an obstacle to exploring what’s to be done the day after, he absolutely needs to go,” she said.

This is not the first time Clinton has attacked the Israeli prime minister since the October 7 terrorist attack. In late December, she used a meeting with the family members of the Israelis taken hostage by the terrorist group Hamas to disparage the Israeli leader.

“A delegation of children and siblings of Israeli hostages being held in Gaza met in New York late Wednesday with Hillary Clinton, who urged them to intensify their pressure on the government,” the New York Times reported on December 22. “She further accused Netanyahu of being more focused on “politics and his personal survival” than on negotiating the release of hostages.”

Clinton’s call for Netanyahu’s ouster comes as the Israeli military is poised to take the last Hamas strongholds in southern Gaza. Additionally, Israel has moved several combat units out of Gaza aimed at training them for a military operation in the north as pro-Iranian terrorist group Hezbollah intensified rocket barrages and shelling — forcing nearly 100,000 Israelis to flee their homes along the Lebanon border.

The Times of Israel reported Clinton’s remarks:

Former US secretary of state Hillary Clinton laid into Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s handling of the Israel-Hamas war on Wednesday and called for his ouster.

“Netanyahu should go. He is not a trustworthy leader. It was on his watch that the [October 7] attack happened. He needs to go, and if he’s an obstacle to a ceasefire, if he’s an obstacle to exploring what’s to be done the day after, he absolutely needs to go,” Clinton told MSNBC’s “Alex Wagner Tonight” in an interview.

It was unclear whether Clinton believed Israel should permanently halt its military campaign under the present circumstances, having voiced strong support for its war effort in the past.

“We wish there was a ceasefire. If Hamas would agree to a ceasefire, there would be a ceasefire,” she said.

IDF troops out of Gaza training for operations against Hezbollah terrorists in the north

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) is training battle-hardened troops from the main theater of combat in Gaza to adapt to a possible conflict with Lebanon-based Hezbollah along the country’s northern border, the Israeli broadcaster Arutz Sheva reported Thursday:

The 36th Division, the Northern Command’s offensive division, has completed an intense combat operation in the Gaza Strip, during which the division’s soldiers significantly damaged the capabilities of the Hamas terrorist organization. Now, the division is increasing its readiness for operational plans against the northern enemy – in defense and offense.

As part of the process to enhance readiness on the northern border, this week, the 188th Brigade began a series of intensive exercises to strengthen the skills and preparedness of the brigade’s soldiers. The brigade’s soldiers conducted combat exercises in dense and built-up areas, in winter weather conditions, while training skills and techniques from the platoon level up to the level of the battalion combat teams.

The training combines armored, infantry, combat engineering, and artillery forces practicing operations against the northern enemy, following the experience of ground operations in the Gaza Strip.

The exercises are led by the Northern Training Center (Ground Forces Training Center), where the training forces are implementing the lessons learned from the fighting in Gaza and making adjustments for combat in the north, including the various challenges regarding terrain and the enemy.

The IDF continued with its retaliatory strikes on Hezbollah terror targets in Lebanon.

Gaza: IDF catches two terrorists involved in October 7 massacre; commander of Hamas’s elite Nukhba unit surrenders

With the Israeli ground forces tightening the noose around Hamas’s Gaza-based leadership in Khan Yunis stronghold, many terrorists, including those who took part in the October 7 massacre, are being captured by the IDF.

“The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) on Thursday reported apprehending dozens of suspected terrorists, including two individuals who took part in the October 7 massacre. Additionally, a Nukhba terrorist was arrested,” the Israeli TV channel i24NEWS reports. “Multiple encounters are said to have resulted in killings of terrorists. In Khan Yunis, IDF troops started killing over 20 terrorists during offensives.”

With Hamas running low on jihadist morale and ammunition, many terrorists are crawling out of their tunnels and civilian hideouts to surrender to the IDF. On Thursday, the Israeli military released a video of a captured commander of Hamas’s elite Nukhba terror unit urging his fellow terrorists to give up.

The Israeli news website Ynet reported:

The Shin Bet security agency released on Thursday footage from the interrogation of a Hamas terrorist who was arrested along with two other terrorists in a tunnel in Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip.

According to the Shin Bet, the interrogated terrorist, who is reportedly a commander in the terror organization’s elite Nukhba unit, revealed that he and the other two terrorists chose not to fight and surrender to the IDF soldiers who entered the tunnel.

The Shin Bet said that the tunnel commander and the other terrorists were apprehended deep inside Khan Younis by Shin Bet operatives and IDF soldiers while hiding behind a reinforced door, armed with anti-tank missiles and explosives. “We will continue to act and strike at Hamas terrorists from above and below ground,” the Shin Bet said.

Oh, yes. Hillary, with her disastrous record on foreign policy, decides to weigh in . . .

    You mean the same Hillary who bumped her head on the glass ceiling and then went out and got drunk?

      MattMusson in reply to Peabody. | February 8, 2024 at 3:02 pm

      Feminist Icon Hillary Clinton said in her book WHAT HAPPENED, that the reason she lost is white women were overly influenced by their husbands to vote for Trump. Don’t you hate it when a Feminist Icon cannot shatter the glass ceiling because of millions and millions of silly, easily influenced women?

        IMO the primary reason she lost is because she called a very large number of people a “basket of deplorables”.

        I’m a white woman, not married, and didn’t ask anyone’s opinion of my voting choice. Maybe there are millions more like me who would have voted for satan before voting for her?

    “Netanyahu should go. He is not a trustworthy leader,”

    isn’t Hillary infamous for her lack of trustworthiness? Hillary oozes sleaze.

    What difference, at this point, does it make?

    diver64 in reply to ChrisPeters. | February 9, 2024 at 5:04 pm

    Why not? She has never been accountable for anything she has done either Ben Gazi or the $100,000 profit for cattle futures learned by reading the WSJ. Surrounded by sycophants she is in a world of positive “you go, girl” as long as the money keeps flowing.

    randian in reply to ChrisPeters. | February 9, 2024 at 11:51 pm

    The same Hilary who presided over hundred of millions of missing dollars at the State Department, and to whom the auditor gave a pass? I’m sure she didn’t receive a dime of that money.

    ConradCA in reply to ChrisPeters. | February 10, 2024 at 12:01 pm

    Hillary has a lot of gall to say “Netanyahu should go. He is not a trustworthy leader”!

At least he was elected to be leader. Multiple times, if I recall.

Nobody elected Hillary to speak for us.

Crawl back into your goblet of chardonnay, skank.

The vile Dhimmi-crats are evil and despicable.

The execrable and democracy-subverting crone, Clinton, opines that Israel’s elected leader “should go” — but, the vile Abbas, essentially a dictator, now, who has been ensconced in his office for over twenty years, and, whose corrupt and terrorism-inciting rule has brought nothing but oppression and self-inflicted poverty and misery to his West Bank constituents, should stay, apparently.

thalesofmiletus | February 8, 2024 at 1:17 pm

Hilary Clinton, who put a server (containing state secrets) in her bathroom to conceal her emails from FOIA requests, is now an expert on trustworthiness?!?

Now, that is chutzpah.

This the same hillary that advised obama to abandon iraq to ISIS? The same hillary that ignored calls for support at bengazi?

    Valerie in reply to smooth. | February 8, 2024 at 1:37 pm

    There was a time when I wanted to vote for Hillary, but I watched that hearing. She said it was a budget item, and that was somebody else’s business. The whole point of having political appointees is to affect the budget.

      JohnSmith100 in reply to Valerie. | February 8, 2024 at 2:47 pm

      I spent a bit over 2 decades lobbying Congress, I had a membership and often spent time at the Capital Hill Club. Lots of legislators and staffers hang out there.

      During the Clinton administration I heard an endless stream of comments about how nasty Hillary was. There was no way I was going to vote for her. And that is I how I came to vote for Trump. I knew that politicians were mostly POS.

      As it turned out, I was pleasantly surprised by Trump.

        The Gentle Grizzly in reply to JohnSmith100. | February 8, 2024 at 4:59 pm

        You were a lobbyist so this question should be easy.

        What is the going purchase price for a member of Congress these days?

        Are they on retainer? Does one pay per bill up before Congress? Inquiring bears would like to know.

          JohnSmith100 in reply to The Gentle Grizzly. | February 9, 2024 at 9:09 am

          I spent 2-3 months a year, 1-2 week stays. We were an advocacy groups, just like farmers making their voices heard today. We all paid our own way. We were not paid lobbyists., a group which is often pretty sleazy. We were not buying politicians, we did drive constituent calls to members of Congress,

Clinton’s posture is akin to a prominent, former U.S. officeholder vilifying Churchill, as he defended England from the German National Socialists in WWII.

This kind of utterly unfair, unbalanced and infantile vilification of an allied leader defending his people against a fanatical enemy bent on committing genocide is not something that any morally upright or intelligent politician should ever engage in. It’s despicable and indefensible behavior.

He is not a trustworthy leader.
Wow, the projection here is even worse than BartE.

I think Hillary “should go.” Please.

This vile witch, when will she go away. Look at what she wrought in Libya. Slave trade, collapse, hoards crossing the Mediterranean. THANK G-D Netanyahu is there at this time. He and his family have fought and bled and died. He will do what must be done to secure Israel, the tip of the spear of western civilization.

Yeah, it always makes so much strategic sense to change horses in mid-stream, if you want to drown.

There are many conditions that must be accepted by the Muslims, before Israel even considers accepting a ceasefire, such as:

Muslims have to stop hating Jews.

Their schools need to teach peaceful co-existence.

    randian in reply to ParkRidgeIL. | February 9, 2024 at 11:57 pm

    If they stopped hating Jews they wouldn’t be Muslim, since their holy book commands it and teaches that the eschaton cannot come unless the Jews are exterminated. Indeed, even the rocks will speak to the Muslims and tell them where the Jews are hiding from their righteous crusade of genocide.

It’s Bibi’s fault that Hamas attacked them, so the answer is to “negotiate” the surrender of the hostages by giving Hamas everything they ask for.

Because that won’t invite them to attack again and take more hostages or anything.

The whole reason the terrorists continue to take hostages is because historically it has gotten them concessions and they expect it to keep getting them concessions.

They will stop doing that when it is made clear to them that taking hostages only earns them retribution, not concessions.

The only acceptable response to hostage taking is to start killing the hostage takers and not stop killing them until the hostages are returned.

I sincerely hope that Mossad is already at work engineering some “accidents” to befall the Hamas leaders in exile in Qatar and other countries. I’m guessing those cowards won’t be so quick to encourage their minions to take hostages when they start realizing that the consequences will be life threateningly severe.

That needs to be standard policy everywhere: if you take hostages, you will receive nothing in return for them but death. It’s cruel and inhumane to the families of the hostages, but such policies will discourage hostage taking and will save untold numbers of other families from suffering that same fate.

She was 100% on Israel’s side in October. Don’t you love people who change their minds based on the opinion winds? No? me either

    Martin in reply to geronl. | February 8, 2024 at 3:25 pm

    I wonder if Qatar sent any large donations to the Clinton Foundation lately?

    Peabody in reply to geronl. | February 8, 2024 at 3:48 pm

    A lot of things happened in Hillary’s life in October:

    1. Born in Chicago, Illinois on Oct 26, 1947
    2. Campaigned for Goldwater in Oct 1965
    3. Last time she slept with Bill – Oct 11, 1975

Stumbling mumbling biden, international symbol of weakness, should resign. The best president that islamofascists ever had. Taliban, hamas, houthis are smiling.

So goes to show Marxists and Deep State are on Hamas side

She’s sort of right. Like him or not, he’s been Prime Minister for most of the last 15 years. This happened on his watch. Look at those flimsy fences that Hamas broke through: those were under his purview. Look at how much of the tunnel network came a surprise to the Israelis: much of that was built in secret under his watch. Over 1000 dead who he was sworn to protect.

He thought Hamas had been tamed and was epically, disastrously, hideously, wrong. Since October 7th, he should have been a lame duck, just waiting for the situation to stabilize before he resigned,

I know a lot of conservatives in the US love the guy, but the bottom line is Oct 7 was planned and occurred while he was in charge.

    TargaGTS in reply to Ann in L.A.. | February 8, 2024 at 2:55 pm

    Gaza has enjoyed independence and complete autonomy since 2004 (I believe) due to a decision by Ariel Sharon, not Netanyahu. The tunnels were not a secret, although the scope of the network seems to be significantly larger than the Israelis imagined. Be that as it may, what could Netenyahu – or anyone in the Israeli government – have done about the tunnels? Nothing as their existence alone wouldn’t have come close to a casus belli in the eyes of the so-called international community. Look at the TREMENDOUS pushback Israel is getting for destroying those tunnels after they were used to murder more than a thousand Israeli civilians in cold blood.

    He’s an elected official in a parliamentary system not a dictator. Had he done the things necessary to truly secure the border and ensure the safety of Israel against Hamas, the coalition he built that made him Prime Minister would have likely fallen apart.

    His own country’s Supreme Court has been acting against him for years, not because he’s too weak on Hamas, but because he’s too “nationalistic”, conservative and a hardliner on Hamas.

    You can’t tie my hands behind my back and then legitimately complain that I dropped the ball.

    guyjones in reply to Ann in L.A.. | February 8, 2024 at 11:06 pm

    Except, Ann, none of crone Clinton’s criticisms are grounded in allegations of Netanyahu’s alleged failures of duty — they’re grounded in the same unhinged, spiteful, infantile, unfair and dishonest hostility that narcissist-incompetent-dunce, Obama, evinced towards Netanyahu, by keeping him waiting hours for a meeting, calling him expletives behind his back, not inviting him to a State function; etc.

    Standard Dhimmi-crat spite of the sort that is never, ever displayed towards Muslim supremacist/terrorist/Islamofascist leaders, no matter how much blood they have on their hands.

    And, lastly — a decision on Netanyahu’s political future is fairly and exclusively for the Israelis to decide, without U.S. interference and putting fingers on the scale.

      guyjones in reply to guyjones. | February 8, 2024 at 11:13 pm

      Also, Ann — it’s totally inappropriate for a prominent U.S. ex-politician to harshly criticize the leader of an allied nation, while that leader and his people are waging an existential battle for their people’s survival and their country’s survival.

      You either support the leader in such a situation, or, if you have criticism, you express it behind closed doors. You don’t engage in this sort of despicable grandstanding that gives succor to Israel’s opponents and critics.

      This is simply outrageously indefensible and irresponsible conduct by vile crone Clinton, here.

    diver64 in reply to Ann in L.A.. | February 9, 2024 at 4:41 am

    I’m not sure it is as much his fault as those in the military and security realm whose responsibility is to protect the country. The intelligence wing failed in a spectacular fashion.

    ConradCA in reply to Ann in L.A.. | February 10, 2024 at 3:29 pm

    The worst thing the Israel did before 10/7 was to prevent the border residents from having a means of self defense. The citizens should have been armed and trained for self.defense and their. homes and village should have been fortified. Furthermore, there should have been a battalion size quick reaction force with helicopters ready to respond to Muslim attacks.

Hamas response: “Thank you. Now shut up and cover your head.

If there is one person who ‘should go’ you disgusting, corrupt, power mongering whore, it is you. Please just STFU and go away, for good.

If this does not speak loudly that Barky and Mike O. have the dirt on the Clintons, then my ass is a moon pie.

Biden needs to meet with Begin and get this straightened out once and for all.

Oh he’s going alright. Going right in to Gaza to end Hamas once and for all 😂😂

Hillary sees the country headed towards

Keep in mind that Hillary, like the entire Democrat Party and their allies farther Left, lust after the death of all Jews “from the River to the Sea”.

Being called untrustworthy by Hillary Clinton must be truly a unique experience.

I suspect that Hillary’s opinion might be different if Israel or its proxies had contributed to the Clinton Foundation. She might then see things a bit differently.

I don’t know what the rest of the article said because My brain locks up every time I read that Hillary said someone else is/was “Untrustworthy”.

BigRosieGreenbaum | February 8, 2024 at 7:07 pm

Trustworthy? And Hamas Hezzbolah is? They have said they do not want a cease fire, they are terrorists and should be eliminated. There is no reason to negotiate anything.

Disappear, useless harridan.

Hillrotten is putting herself forward again – flattering images – quotes, etc.

You can bet your britches she’s lobbying the Powers That Be to install her instead of Kamala Harris when they finally take out demented incompetent corrupt Biden.

Fat_Freddys_Cat | February 9, 2024 at 8:15 am

I don’t pretend to know if she’s right about Netanyahu or not. I do know that the Israeli people should not be taking advice from her.

This from the “leader” who said “What difference, at this point, does it make?” regarding the travesty of Benghazi? Her time in the spotlight is over. She needs to go away.

Hillary and Netanyahu are equals in a sense. Neither was the first woman to be elected POTUS.

When the people you really care about are being killed in their hidey-holes you’ll say anything.

I know Barack Hussein feels that way about Hamas. He’s an actual member of the Muslim Brotherhood, according to the brotherhood itself. The Brotherhood is the parent organization of Al-Qaeda, and Hamas calls itself “the Palestinian wing of Al-Qaeda.”

I’m not entirely surprised that Hillary would be in the same boat. Her closest confident for many years, Huma Abedin, is Muslim brotherhood royalty.

Huma’s father is the architect of the Brotherhood’s immigration scheme for bringing a fifth column of Islamic Jihad to America.

Remember Khizr Khan, the Muslim father of a Muslim U.S. soldier who died as a war hero in Iraq? Khizr ran an immigration agency for orthodox Muslims to come to America, along the lines that Huma’s father laid out.

It’s the Jihad wing of the Gramscian “long march through the institutions,” and Hillary’s mentor Saul Alinsky is the American small “c” communist who brought Gramsci’s “long march” to America.

(Gramsci was an Italian capital “C” Communist, but the American Communist Party refused to follow Gramsci’s shift to the “long march” strategy, so Alinsky never joined the party.)

Still, the nakedness of Hillary’s siding with Hamas is surprising. My guess is that she’s been talking to her fellow Alinsky communist Barack Hussain, and is in part speaking for him, since Obama likes to keep his head down.

Capitalist-Dad | February 9, 2024 at 10:17 am

The filthy grifter Killary should be the one banished from decent society.

Netanyahu should go. The fact Israel wants to imprison its own people for questioning the events on that day proves something is fishy. And no I am not defending Hillary or anything close to a supporter. I do know what Israel is doing is wrong. You don’t get to displace 2 million people under any circumstances. No that’s not anti semitism either.

Who cares what this crooked SOB has to say about anything?
