After seeing firsthand the devastating aftermath of the terrorist attack on Israel by Hamas, U.S. Sen. Katie Britt (R-Montgomery) is calling for a united front in support of Israel and the "eradication" of the terrorist group.
"What we saw there was beyond comprehension. It was absolute, pure evil," Britt said Sunday on Fox News' "Life, Liberty & Levin."
She continued, "I am of the belief that all religions can live together in peace and prosperity, but good cannot coexist with evil, and when you see evil rear its head, which is exactly what we saw on October 7, we must look it in the eyes, and we must take it down."
Britt said Hama's goal is to "wipe the Jewish people off the face of this planet," and it's "unimaginable" how anyone could support Hamas against Israel, referring to the pro-Palestine protests seen on college campuses and in cities across the U.S.
"[W]e should be able to call evil 'evil', and that fact that we have those among us that are not able to do that is beyond comprehension," she said. "… There is absolutely no way anyone should be able to defend any of their actions."
Britt said the Biden administration needs to place "maximum pressure" on Hamas and countries giving them aid, like Iran, by employing "bone-crushing sanctions."
"We are going to have to start really holding people accountable," she said. "We not only need deterrents in the region, but when our air bases are struck, we have to respond with defensive strikes."
"We have to make sure that we eradicate Hamas. Anything less is unacceptable."
