‘Destroy Every Element Of Hamas’: Marco Rubio Rejects Call For Ceasefire In Confrontation With Left-Wing Activist | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) slammed calls for Israel to agree to a longer ceasefire with Hamas terrorists when he was confronted by a Left-wing activist in a video posted to social media Wednesday.

    In the video, Medea Benjamin - an activist and co-founder of radical Left-wing anti-war organization Code Pink - stopped Rubio in a hallway and asked him if he would call for a ceasefire.

    "No, I will not," Rubio replied. "Are you guys filming this? I want you guys to get this. I want Israel to destroy every element of Hamas they can get their hands on. These people are vicious animals who did horrifying crimes, and I hope you guys post that."

    Benjamin attempted to press Rubio further, asking him, "What about the civilians being killed every day?"

    "I blame Hamas. Hamas should stop hiding behind civilians," the Florida senator said. "Hamas knew that this was going to lead to this, so Hamas has to stop building their military installations underneath the hospital."

    The Code Pink co-founder continued to berate Rubio.

    "So you don't care that 15,000 have died, you don't care about the babies that are getting killed every day?" she asked, referencing a claim from Palestinian sources that has been disputed, as Hamas has lied about casualty numbers before.

    "I think it's terrible, and I think Hamas is 100% to blame ... make sure you post that please," Rubio told the person filming the interaction before he walked away.


    Hamas leaders agreed to abide by a temporary ceasefire last week as Israel attempted to negotiate for the release of hostages taken into the Gaza Strip by the terrorist group during its brutal attack on October 7. The terrorists have violated the temporary ceasefire multiple times this week, however. The Israel Defense Forces said on Tuesday that its troops were attacked in multiple locations, and on Thursday, Hamas took credit for a terror attack at a bus stop in Jerusalem that killed three.


    The war between Israel and Hamas entered its 55th day on Thursday after Hamas launched a brutal attack on the country on October 7, killing more than 1,200 people and taking hundreds more as hostages. Since the temporary ceasefire was agreed upon last week, 97 hostages have been released in exchange for over 200 Palestinian prisoners being held by Israel. Israel believes Hamas is hanging onto around 145 hostages in the Gaza Strip, including 15 women and children, according to The Times of Israel.

26 days after the October 7th Terror attacks on Israel, where over 1400 Jewish men, women and children were gruesomely murdered, and hundreds more made hostage: Should the Biden /Harris administration finally state that the administration's primary Middle East negotiating partner, Iran, is behind the funding and strategy of the aggressors, the Hamas Terrorists, or continue to take the more moderate position of "Don't," which is clearly not working?
  Yes, name Iran as the funding /strategy culprit, and begin to enforce the President Trump era sanctions to END Iran's ability to prosecute this war against Israel and the United States.
  No, Iran is a valuable partner in the motives of the Biden / Harris administration, and must not be named as the culprit and our enemy.
  I have larger concerns just to survive in this economy.

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.
  In the imitable words of Alfred E. Newman: "What, me worry?"
