BREAKING NEWS: according to The New York Times and Al Jazeera on Sunday, there is a possible release of dual nationality hostages by Hamas.
The two media outlets cite an Israeli military official, saying there’s a chance that Hamas might release approximately 50 dual-nationality prisoners.
Hamas has also issued a warning, indicating that a ground invasion could potentially decrease the likelihood of the hostages being set free, the source told media outlets.
“Don’t rush to failure on this,” Retired Lt. Col. Darin Gaub is warning Democrat Joe Biden, who could face U.S. entry into what Gaub describes as a possible World War 3.
Gaub appeared on Fox News Sunday night to talk about the situation in Israel and to consider what America’s role is in what is a terrifying situation that is causing domestic uprisings around the nation.
“People protesting have been taught a false history that Palestinians are being pressed because of Hamas. Hezbollah and Iran will not allow people to live peacefully in the region,” Gaub said.
“Our concerns are that our military is poorly led. We should not walk into a war that we should be in, in the first place,” Gaub said on Fox News Sunday: Watch FOX NEWS CLIP HERE.
Gaub has been making numerous media appearances since Hamas attacked Israel.
In another recent Fox News appearance, Gaub described the build-up in the region and what his experience in the military told him was occurring.
The conflict between Israel and Hamas has been ongoing for decades, with both sides claiming the right to control the land of Palestine. The current conflict began on October 7, 2023, when Hamas launched a surprise attack on Israel, including thousands of armed Hamas fighters breaching a border security fence and indiscriminately gunning down Israeli civilians and soldiers taken off guard. Other militants stormed beaches in Israel in motorboats, and some brought death from the sky, swooping in on paragliders.
The conflict has escalated since then, with Israel responding with a barrage of airstrikes decimated the Gaza Strip, leaving more than 300,000 displaced residents. Israel has warned more than 1 million Palestinians to move to a safer part of the territory in southern Gaza or potentially face the wrath of 400,000 Israeli soldiers prepped to annihilate Hamas militant units, many believed to be hiding in a miles-long network of tunnels under residential neighborhoods.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has warned that the intensification of Israeli airstrikes on Hamas targets and a possible ground incursion into Gaza will keep the United States in a “heightened threat environment in the near-to-medium term.”
The situation is complex and deeply rooted in history and politics. Hamas is an Islamic fundamentalist group founded in 1987 to establish an Islamic state in Palestine. Israel views Hamas as a terrorist organization and has been fighting against it for years.
“This is about failed foreign policy that we have tried before,” retired Lt. Col. Darin Gaub, founder of Restore Liberty, said.
“Our first mission is to protect the crews, and the mission appears to be protecting Israel, and we need not to be drawn into this conflict. That would be the most dangerous situation,” Gaub said on Fox News.
Listen to Gaub’s discussion on Fox News about the strategies that could be unfolding:
The conflict has resulted in thousands of deaths and injuries on both sides. According to Israeli officials, more than 1,400 people have been killed in Israel, including children, and another 3,400 people have been injured. Meanwhile, at least 3,000 people have been killed in Gaza, and about 12,500 have been wounded according to the Palestinian Health Authority.
The international community has called for an end to the violence and for both sides to return to negotiations. However, finding a peaceful solution to this conflict is not easy. It requires both sides to make significant concessions and compromises. Until then, innocent civilians will continue to suffer.
Gaub and many others do not want America to sacrifice American resources and lives in another dark hole of war in the Middle East region, and there is a growing discontent with Joe Biden and our civil servants in Washington DC who are showing us in many ways they are not operating with the best interest of the American people.
