(FreedomBeacon.com)- Former President George W. Bush came out recently in support of granting amnesty to millions of illegal aliens in the United States, but his comments about Hamas terrorists this week showed that he hasn’t completely lost the plot.
Speaking to Fox News, the former president said that the ongoing terrorist attacks in Israel committed by Palestinian Islamic militants is “Iranian influence targeted toward Israel.”
It follows weeks of rockets directed at Israel that have prompted the Jewish state to respond in kind with military force and through the use of its Iron Dome missile interception and defense system.
“I think the best approach with regard to Iran is to understand that their influence is dangerous for world peace,” Bush said.
The former president insisted that Iran is involved with the extremist (Islamic) movements across Yemen, Syria, and Lebanon, and that the country is aiming to spread its influence amidst ongoing tensions with the United States. Tensions which are likely soon to be reduced slightly when President Joe Biden completely capitulated and re-enters the failed Iran Nuclear Deal.
Hamas, a Palestinian militant Islamist organization that controls Palestine, is an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood of Egypt. It’s a Sunni Islamist group that governs nations under the rules of Islamic scripture. Hamas has controlled Gaza ever since 2007 and has been recognized as a terrorist organization.
Isn’t it crazy how left-wing activists and Democrats so frequently defend a so-called state controlled by an Islamist terrorist organization?
While Iran has previously opposed Sunni radicals in the Yemen and Syria civil wars, it is understood to be supporting Hamas in its efforts to fight Israel – a shared enemy.
Former President Bush knows plenty about the Middle East, having overseen the invasion of Afghanistan in 2001, which became America’s longest-running war.
The comments come at a time when the former president appears to be re-entering political life. During the Fox interview, he said that he was concerned by the Biden administration’s plans to resurrect the old nuclear deal with Iran, and he also threw his support behind the Abaraham Accords – the peace deals between Israel and four Arab countries – that were negotiated under the Trump administration.
