Barack Obama has weighed in on the Israel-Hamas conflict, stating that both parties are culpable: 'Nobody’s hands are clean.' The former president urged Americans to confront the reality of the situation, emphasizing that neither side is entirely innocent in this ongoing strife. He warned against disregarding the intricacies of the war between Israel and Hamas, asserting that "all of us are complicit."
In his words, "What Hamas did was horrific and there's no justification for it," but he also pointed out the issues with "the occupation and what's happening to Palestinians." In a podcast, he further expounded on the actions of Hamas, labeling them as "horrific" with no justification.
Obama reiterated his stance that “nobody's hands are clean” in the conflict between Israel and the Palestinian militant group Hamas. His comments shed light on the complex nature of the battle, emphasizing that a solution can't be reached until everyone acknowledges the 'whole truth' about the war between Israel and Hamas.
During an interview on Pod Save America, Obama argued that the U.S. had to admit that "all of us are complicit" in the conflict. This statement came amidst the ongoing coverage of the Israel-Hamas war, which included reports of an Israeli strike hitting a refugee camp and a surprise visit to the occupied West Bank by Antony Blinken.
