In an exclusive interview with Breitbart News, Rep. Mike Waltz (R-FL) criticized President Biden’s Iran policy and its consequences on the conflict between Israel and Hamas. He argued that every time Biden lectures Israel on human rights, he unknowingly signals that Hamas propaganda is effective.
Waltz called for starving Iran of funds used to finance terrorism and warned that open borders in the U.S. are a ticking time bomb for terrorism.
Waltz condemned the Biden administration for pressuring Israel to install the Palestinian Authority (PA) in Gaza after Hamas. He described the PA as corrupt and lacking popularity. He also criticized the two-state paradigm and highlighted Hamas’s opposition to it.
Waltz suggested that Gulf Arab states should support a new generation of Palestinian leaders and liberate the Palestinian people from the terrorist dictatorship of Hamas.
The congressman emphasized that Iran is the root cause of the conflict, stating that as long as Iran has funds, Hamas will continue to rise. He urged the administration to reverse its failed Iran policy and cut off Iran’s funding of terrorism.
To circumvent the administration’s policies, Congress has passed the SHIP Act, imposing secondary sanctions on refiners, ports, and shipping companies that move Iranian oil.
Calling for a return to maximum pressure on Iran, Waltz warned of a nuclear arms race if Iran acquires nuclear weapons.
He stressed the need for the administration to completely reverse its stance on Iran.
Regarding threats of terrorism on American soil, Waltz revealed that the FBI is tracking nearly 200 leads of individuals on terrorist watch lists across the country.
He called it a ticking time bomb and expressed concern that the open border could lead to an attack similar to what Israel experienced.
Waltz, a former Green Beret and policy adviser, emphasized the urgency of addressing these issues.
Rep. Waltz warns of Hamas Propaganda Effectiveness on Biden’s Israel Stance, Urges Action on Iran
In an exclusive interview, Rep. Mike Waltz (R-FL) criticized President Biden for inadvertently amplifying Hamas propaganda through his lectures on human rights to Israel.
Waltz blamed the administration’s failed Iran policy for the current conflict and called to cut off Iran’s funding of terrorism.
He warned that open borders pose a ticking time bomb for terrorism in the U.S.
Waltz highlighted the Palestinian side’s use of human shields and criticized the inflated casualty figures provided by Hamas. He pointed out that other terrorist groups like the Taliban, al Qaeda, and Hezbollah also exploit their own people for political propaganda.
He lamented the lack of criticism directed at Russia and China for pushing Hamas propaganda.
The congressman contrasted the administration’s approach towards Israel with its more cautious attitude towards Ukraine. He questioned the media’s willingness to believe Hamas’s claims against Israel without fact-checking, while doubting anything coming from Putin’s mouth.

He suggested that Gulf Arab states support a new generation of Palestinian leaders.
Waltz stressed that Iran is the underlying issue in the conflict and warned that even if Hamas is eliminated, it will regrow as long as Iran has the funds to support it. He called for a complete reversal of the administration’s failed Iran policy and the implementation of secondary sanctions on Iranian oil.
On the matter of terrorism on American soil, Waltz revealed that the FBI is monitoring nearly 200 individuals on terrorist watch lists. He expressed concern that an attack is imminent as long as the border remains open.
Waltz, a former Green Beret, emphasized the urgency of addressing these threats.
