KENNEDY CLASHES WITH BALL! Heated Debate Erupts as RFK Stands Up for Israel [WATCH]

posted by Hannity Staff - 12.19.23

2024 presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. got into it with liberal news host Krystal Ball over the ongoing war between Israel and the terrorist group Hamas in Gaza.

Kennedy erupted after Ball said that Hamas acknowledged Israel’s right to exist.

“Krystal — I cannot let you. I just cannot let you tell that,” he said. “It’s just not true.”

Ball then claimed that the Palestinians have been starving for a long time.

“And why is that? Why do you blame Israel for that?” RFK fired back. “First of all, Israel has no obligation. Israel built 3,000 houses and gave them for greenhouses. That would have made Gaza completely food self-sufficient, gave it to them as a gift. Offered to rebuild the port of Gaza to make it the Singapore of the West. Hamas said, ‘No, we don’t want you’re money. We don’t want you’re ideas.’”

“And what did they do? The international aid agencies have given Hamas, have given Gaza more than 10 times per capita what we gave to rebuild all of Europe after the Marshall Plan,” he continued. “They’ve gotten $8,300 per capita, every person in Gaza. We rebuilt Europe with $621 per capita in Europe, and we rebuilt it. What did they do with that money? Instead of using it to make this, you know, Gaza this beautiful country with white sand beaches. It should be a paradise. Hamas said, ‘we don’t want that.’ They take virtually all the money and they steal it. So the top five, the top five leaders of Hamas are billionaires. Ismail Haniyeh has $5 billion, according to Forbes.”

Ball again tried to interrupt and talk over Kennedy.

“Let me just finish. You are making a statement that is just wrong,” RFK said. “It’s not Israel’s fault that Gaza is poverty-stricken. Gaza should be one of the wealthiest states on the Mediterranean.”
