Israeli Prime Minister Dismisses Genocide Accusations, Accuses Hamas of Antisemitism

In a press briefing on the 100th day of the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reiterated his unwavering commitment to dismantling Hamas, stating, “Nobody will stop us.” 

Brushing aside potential interference from the International Court of Justice (ICJ) and what he referred to as the “axis of evil” led by Iran, Netanyahu defended Israel’s actions and rebuffed accusations of genocide.

Netanyahu characterized the claims against Israel as a “hypocritical onslaught” orchestrated by those seeking to perpetrate another Holocaust against the Jewish people. 

He highlighted alleged instances of antisemitism in Hamas-controlled areas, claiming that anti-Semitic materials, including copies of Adolf Hitler’s “Mein Kampf,” were found in Hamas tunnels in Gaza. 

Netanyahu also asserted the discovery of a child’s tablet featuring a screensaver with Hitler in a home in Gaza.

Despite acknowledging the persistence of antisemitism, Netanyahu emphasized the resilience of the Jewish people, vowing to continue the fight “until the end.”

The Israeli Prime Minister addressed the strategic importance of closing the Philadelphi Corridor, a 14-kilometre strip serving as the border between Egypt and Gaza. 

He argued that Israel could not conclude the war without securing control over this corridor, which would involve demilitarizing Gaza and preventing the influx of military equipment and deadly weapons.

“We’ll destroy Hamas, we’ll demilitarize Gaza, and military equipment and other deadly weapons will continue to enter this southern opening, so of course we need to close it,” Netanyahu explained.

In response to Netanyahu’s remarks, Egyptian foreign ministry spokesperson Ahmed Abu Zeid asserted Egypt’s full control over its borders, stating that any discussions regarding the border’s status are subject to legal and security agreements between the involved countries.

As Israel marks 100 days since the outbreak of the war in Gaza, the prime minister’s resolute statements reflect the ongoing challenges and complexities surrounding the conflict with Hamas. 

The international community continues to watch closely as tensions persist, with questions raised about the role of the ICJ and the broader implications of the conflict on regional stability.

The situation remains fluid, and the coming days will likely see further developments as diplomatic efforts and military actions shape the trajectory of the Israel-Hamas conflict.
