    The remarks come after the Palestinian Islamic terrorists massacred more than 1,400 Israelis, wounded 5,200+ more, and took hundreds hostage during an unprecedented terrorist attack on October 7. Children were beheaded, babies burned alive, and women raped so violently that their dead bodies were discovered to have broken pelvises.

    Israel launched the most intense airstrikes of the campaign against Hamas in northern Gaza on Friday night, hitting 150 targets in the terrorists' underground tunnel network. Footage released by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) also showed a much larger group of ground units entering Gaza than had entered the previous two nights in limited raids.

    "Yesterday evening, additional ground forces of ours entered the gates of Gaza. This is the second stage of the war, the goals of which are clear: Destroying Hamas's military and governing capabilities, and bringing the captives back home," Netanyahu said. "We made the decision to expand ground operations unanimously, both in the War Cabinet and in the Security Cabinet. We did this in a balanced and considered way, based on a commitment to ensure both the destiny of the state and the security of our soldiers."

    He said that he met with the hostages' families and reassured them that the country is doing everything it can to get their loved ones back.

    "Whoever dares to accuse our soldiers of war crimes are hypocritical liars who lack so much as one drop of morality. The IDF is the most moral army in the world," he said. "The IDF does everything to avoid harming non-combatants. I again call on the civilian population to evacuate to a safe area in the southern Gaza Strip."

    He said Israel's continually increasing intensity of airstrikes against Hamas was only the beginning.

    "We have eliminated countless terrorists, including arch-terrorists, and we have destroyed many terrorist command posts and infrastructure. We are only just getting started," he said. "The war inside the Gaza Strip will be long and difficult - and we are ready for it. This is our second war of independence. We will fight to defend our homeland."

    "We will fight and not retreat. We will fight on land, at sea and in the air. We will destroy the enemy above ground and below ground. We will fight and we will win," he continued. "This will be a victory of good over evil, of light over darkness, of life over death. In this war we will stand steadfast, more united than ever, certain in the justice of our cause. This is the mission of our lives. This is also the mission of my life."

    "On behalf of all of us, I pray for the wellbeing of our soldiers: 'May G-d make the enemies who rise against us be struck down before them! May He subdue our enemies under them and crown them with deliverance and victory,'" he concluded.

In the minds of many, since January 20, 2021, the World has become far less safe in every theater of conflict, beginning with the attack of Israel by Iran /Hamas, so the question becomes: What caused this Worldwide calamity of extreme geopolitical dysfunction, and what will correct it?
  Joe Biden is the cause of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when a Republican is elected president.
  This delayed Worldwide dysfunction and constant conflict is all Donald Trump's fault, as it is with everything that occurs going forward, and long before the man ever became the 45th president..
  Joe Biden is the "root cause" of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when former President Donald John Trump is elected president.
