“The US, UK and the rest of the free world must do all they can to assist Israel in destroying Hamas.
“If Israel doesn’t destroy Hamas, then we will see Hamas launch terrorist attacks on the streets of London, New York, and throughout Europe. It is in our interests for the Israelis to crush Hamas and destroy them.”
Mr Gardiner continued: “If the Israelis don’t finish the job in terms of crushing Hamas, and all indications are they will finish the job but if they don’t because of Western pressure, or a withdrawal of US support, it would be catastrophic for the Middle East and would embolden every single Islamic terrorist organization.
“If the head of the snake is not cut off, you are going to see a wave of Hamas terrorist atrocities.”
Earlier this week, Israeli leader Netanyahu issued a stark warning to America that it could be “next” if the Israeli military does not defeat Hamas.
He told Fox News’ Sean Hannity in a televised interview: “We have to win not only for our sake but for the sake of the Middle East, for the sake of our Arab neighbors.
“If we don’t win now, then Europe is next and you’re next. And we have to win.”
Netanyahu continued: “We have to have the forces of civilization beat these barbarians because otherwise this barbarism will spread and will endanger the entire world.
“Every American, every civilized country will be under peril. We have to win.”
