'UN'BELIEVABLE! Kirby Blasts Hamas After UN Under-Secretary Calls Them a 'Political Movement'

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.16.24

White House National Security Communications Adviser John Kirby blasted UN Under-Secretary General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Martin Griffiths this week after he claimed that Hamas wasn’t a terrorist group. Griffiths says Hamas is a “political movement.”

Griffiths made the comment during a Sky News interview.

“In terms of Israel’s plan to eliminate Hamas and have them never be a part of any future negotiations when it comes to Gaze — do you think that’s realistic?” the reporter asked Griffiths.

“I think it’s very difficult and as you say I’ve worked with many, many different terrorists and insurgent groups. Hamas is not a terrorist group for us, as you know, it’s a political movement,” Griffiths answers.

During an interview with The Jerusalem Post, John Kirby reiterated the U.S. stance that Hamas is a terrorist organization and says one only needs to look at the organization’s charter.

“Hamas is a terrorist organization,” White House National Security Communications Adviser John Kirby insisted on Thursday, according to The Jerusalem Post.

“And you don’t have to look any further than what they did on the 7th of October to see it in stark terms,” he said.”My goodness, take a look at their manifesto, even the one that’s so-called watered down in 2017,” Kirby said. “There’s no doubt they just want to wipe Israel off the face of the map.”This is a terrorist organization, pure and simple. Period.”
