White House National Security Council spokesperson John Kirby criticized leftists for accusing Israel of committing genocide against Palestinians in Gaza, clarifying that Hamas, not Israel, is the genocidal entity.

Kirby emphasized that Hamas aims to wipe Israel off the map and has genocidal intentions, citing recent public statements.

“What Hamas wants, make no mistake about it, is genocide,” Kirby said.

“They want to wipe Israel off the map, they’ve said so, publicly, on more than one occasion, in fact just recently. And they’ve said that they’re not going to stop.”

“What happened on the 7th of October is going to happen ‘again, and again, and again’. And what happened on the 7th of October? Murder, slaughter, of innocent people in their homes, or at a music festival.”

“That’s genocidal intentions.”

He acknowledged civilian casualties in Gaza and urged Israel to be cautious but emphasized that Israel is defending itself against a genocidal terrorist threat and is not attempting to wipe out the Palestinian people or Gaza.

“Yes, there are too many civilian casualties in Gaza, yes the numbers are too high, yes too many families are grieving, and yes we continue to urge the Israelis to be as careful and cautious as possible,” he said.

“That’s not gonna stop, from the president and right on down. But Israel is not trying to wipe the Palestinian people off the map, Israel is not trying wipe Gaza off the map.”

“Israel is trying to defend itself against a genocidal terrorist threat. So if we’re going to start using that word, fine, let’s use it appropriately.”

Kirby called for the appropriate use of the term “genocide” in the context of the situation.
