Tuberville: Hamas Needs to be Totally Wiped Out

“Hamas are a bunch of animals.”

WASHINGTON — U.S. Senator Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) called for Hamas to be “totally wiped out” after they orchestrated barbaric terrorist attacks against Israel. Senator Tuberville stands unequivocally with Israel and believes the lives tragically lost are a direct result of Joe Biden’s appeasement of Iran. Since day 1 in office, Joe Biden has let Iran off the hook by loosening sanctions, remaining in the Iran Nuclear Deal, and, most recently, handing over $6 billion. Joe Biden’s kowtowing to Iran emboldened them to work with Hamas to orchestrate this evil attack against our closest ally in the Middle East.

Excerpts from Senator Tuberville’s interviews can be found below. 


Hamas has got to be totally wiped out. We’ve got to go after them. They killed American citizens. They’ve got hostages. We don’t take that – we go after it. And hopefully Joe Biden will strengthen up here and make some good decisions. He hasn’t made any good foreign relations decisions probably in our lifetime.”


“Well, this a different type of war, Larry. These are a bunch of animals. They don’t care whether they die or not. We’ve got hostages there. We’ve lost thirty Americans. […] Unfortunately, Joe Biden, the empty suit that he’s in, […] gave them all their money back and dropped the sanctions. They were almost broke when President Trump was in office. Now they’re worth hundreds of billions of dollars. […] The problem obviously is Hamas, who’s a bunch of animals, and Iran. But the problem here is we have no leadership from Joe Biden.”


“This is a disaster, what’s going on. And it’s all caused by Joe Biden. Iran was almost bankrupt when Joe Biden took office. President Trump put all the sanctions on them – they couldn’t sell their oil. We were producing oil and people were buying from us all over the world. […] But now since they closed it down over here, Iran is making billions of dollars after Joe Biden took the sanctions off. And it’s just enhanced all these terrorists. Joe Biden is directly responsible along with a few other people for what’s happening over in Israel right now..”


“We need to get our hostages out. We need to take care of business. I’m 120% behind Israel. We need to eradicate Hamas. This is awful what has happened over there, and hopefully our military’s ready…”


In the past week, Senator Tuberville has been vocal in his support for Israel and their right to defend themselves.

Statement from Senator Tuberville, October 12, 2023: 

“Israel is our closest ally and I firmly stand with them. Joe Biden is attempting to deflect the facts that he lifted sanctions against Iran and handed over $6 billion and Iranian prisoners to get Americans back, all while Iran was plotting with Hamas to go into Israel with the mission to obtain more hostages. 

Now 27 Americans are dead and others are held hostage. My first priority is getting our Americans back, then Hamas needs to be wiped off the map. The White House using these atrocities and trying to spin my words to put more political pressure on me to lift military holds is despicable. But it’s par for the course for this administration.”

1819 News: Tuberville blasts Biden for sleeping through Israel terrorist attack — ‘He didn’t wake up till 7:30’

October 11, 2023

“When you don’t have a strong administration where people respect them, I mean, we know when it all started with the Biden administration,” Tuberville said. “They haven’t made a decision that’s good for the world, not just our country, but good for the world, since they’ve taken over. You can’t lead from behind, and that’s what’s happened here.”

“Iran is behind this,” Tuberville said. “They’re the heartbeat of the Middle East regarding terrorism. They hate us, and they hate the world. And it’s just unfortunate Israel is right in the middle of it. I’ll tell you; all heck is getting ready to break loose. They’ve probably got a 24, 48-hour moratorium on the hostages. And once they figure out they’re not going to send them back, they’ll send in several hundred thousand troops. Then we’ll have us a real war on our hands.”

“[H]e didn’t wake up till 7:30,” Tuberville said. “The attack started at 3:00. We just found that out this morning. He slept through it, then had a party last night, a barbecue at the White House. But they didn’t even wake him up because there’s nothing he can do. He doesn’t make decisions anyway.”
