Israeli President Isaac Herzog, in an interview with Kristen Welker on “Meet the Press,” addressed the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas.

He distanced the Israeli government from calls to displace Gazans and attributed such sentiments to national trauma.

Herzog emphasized the broader implications of the conflict, highlighting a Hamas document allegedly promoting militarization through summer camps. (Trending: Joe Biden Caught In Another Major Lie About J6)

Bezalel Smotrich said, “What needs to be done in the Gaza Strip is to encourage emigration. If there are 100,000 or 200,000 Arabs in Gaza and not 2 million Arabs, the entire discussion on the day after will be totally different.”

“Most of Israeli society will say ‘why not, it’s a nice place, let’s make the desert bloom, it doesn’t come at anyone’s expense,’” he continued.

Itamar Ben-Gvir reportedly said the war offers an “opportunity to concentrate on encouraging the migration of the residents of Gaza.”

“We cannot withdraw from any territory we are in in the Gaza Strip. Not only do I not rule out Jewish settlement there, I believe it is also an important thing,” encouraged the Israeli official.

When asked about controversial statements from Israeli ministers, Herzog refrained from direct political involvement but stressed the nation’s focus on regional change.

“I’m saying outright, officially and unequivocally, this is not the Israeli position,” said Herzog.

“We should remember, however, the national psyche here,” he continued.

“We are in deep trauma in the last three months. We have seen so much agony, pain and sadness. And may I remind all that we still have over 130 Israelis [being held hostage] from babies, from toddlers, one of them due to celebrate 1-year-old in a week’s time, all the way to 85-year-olds, as well, including people with Holocaust background,” explained Herzog.

“So, because of that, our nation is bereaving, is worried, is agonized, and we are doing whatever we can to do whatever it takes to bring back these hostages,” he added.

Herzog said, “It’s not only a war between Israel and Hamas. It has to do with the values of the free world as we see them all throughout.”

Herzog had a document that he claimed was “a directive by the commanders of Hamas as to how to manage summer camps for children in order to disseminate the values of jihad.”

“It says it clearly, ‘to disseminate the values of jihad and the values of the resistance, meaning terror, ‘and how to make it a militarized society.’ And it’s all over the Gaza Strip, meaning they take the kids– whilst we all know what summer camps are and what they’re aimed for, and what a wonderful experience it is to enable youngsters, kids and adolescents, to become citizens of the free world with liberties, with happiness, with joy, with sports — here, the entire aim is to make them terrorists,” claimed the Israeli President.

“NBC News has not been able to review the document or confirm it,” the host noted.

“I’m sure the prime minister will relate to it, undoubtfully,” said Herzog.

“But it is one of the items in the national debate on so many topics, because we are a democracy. But we are focused, really focused, to bring about change in the region,” he added.
