US rebukes ‘irresponsible’ comments from Israeli ministers

Too much talking out loud about Israel’s desire to ethnically cleanse Gaza. Embarrassing to Israel’s most loyal ally the US, who is the global social justice warrior par excellence!

The U.S. State Department has rejected recent comments made by two Israeli ministers, calling them “irresponsible” and “inflammatory” for advocating for the resettlement of Palestinians outside of Gaza.

“The United States rejects recent statements from Israeli Ministers Bezalel Smotrich and Itamar Ben Gvir advocating for the resettlement of Palestinians outside of Gaza,” State Department spokesperson Matthew Miller said in a statement. “This rhetoric is inflammatory and irresponsible.

We have been told repeatedly and consistently by the Government of Israel, including by the Prime Minister, that such statements do not reflect the policy of the Israeli government. They should stop immediately,” he added.

Smotrich, Israel’s finance minister, and Gvir, the nation’s national security minister, came under fire earlier this week after they each suggested the war in Gaza could result in the resettlement of the Palestinian people.

Smotrich told reporters Monday that the solution to the war was “to encourage the voluntary migration of Gaza’s residents to countries that will agree to take in the refugees,”

The Times of Israel reported. Ben Gvir echoed similar sentiments, telling reporters Monday that the war offers an “opportunity to concentrate on encouraging the migration of the residents of Gaza,” according to the outlet.

“We cannot withdraw from any territory we are in in the Gaza Strip. Not only do I not rule out Jewish settlement there, I believe it is also an important thing,” Ben Gvir said. The U.S. has repeatedly pushed for a two-state solution. Miller said in a post on X, formerly Twitter, said that there “should be no mass displacement of Palestinians from Gaza.”

“We have been clear, consistent, and unequivocal that Gaza is Palestinian land and will remain Palestinian land, with Hamas no longer in control of its future and with no terror groups able to threaten Israel,” Miller said in his statement.

“That is the future we seek, in the interests of Israelis and Palestinians, the surrounding region, and the world.”

Benjamin Netanyahu believes, and stated, he can convince the US of the righteousness of his ethnic cleansing
