Sunday morning on ABC’s This Week, former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Israel should continue its aerial bombardment of Gaza and not worry about negotiating a cease fire agreement.
“Well, I think two things,” he said. “One is, end all this talk about the peace process. You have a permanent war in the region. You have people determined to destroy Israel. They spend all the periods of non-war building up the weapons to have war, and then when they think it’s appropriate, they wage war. And then they go back to saying, ‘Oh, no, let’s talk about a peace process while we accumulate more weapons.’”
“Second, I think the Israelis — this is very deliberate, the Israelis have analyzed an Iranian wing of Hamas and an Egyptian wing,” Gingrich continued “They are methodically destroying the Iranian wing. I think they will — they will stop when they decide they’ve optimized their destruction, but they are very methodically killing people and taking out assets that relate — these are — these are Iranian rockets that are hitting Tel Aviv right now. They came in probably through Sudan.”
