As Israel prepares for a ground invasion of Gaza, it has warned civilians in the north to evacuate. But what will happen next? President Biden told 60 Minutes that he believes it would be a "big mistake" for Israel to occupy Gaza after it destroys Hamas. But Glenn disagrees. Glenn reviews the historical precedence for such a move and warns that a two-state solution didn't work out so well the last time it was tried, in post-World War II Germany. Plus, he points out the "key" to the whole argument: The Palestinians in Gaza might be controlled by Hamas, but they VOTED for Hamas, which uses them as human shields ... and recent polls suggest the vast majority still support the destruction of Israel.
Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors
GLENN: There's a couple of things. NBC, that incredibly right-wing organization, of NBC. Showed some documents, that they obtained, exclusive coverage on NBC, that show Hamas created detailed plans to target elementary schools and a youth center in -- in part of their attack.
The -- in Arabic, which shows, you know, the map and where they need to go, and it says, kill as many people as possible.
They're also labeled, top secret.
Now, they came off of the body of one of the people, Israel. Sent to Allah, this weekend.
And I feel bad about that. Well, actually, I don't. But he's with his -- is it 80 or is it 90 virgins?
I think it's 80 virgins, right? How many virgins?
STU: I thought it was only 70. How many virgins do they thought? Is there an exchange rate? Is it affected by inflation?
GLENN: I think it's 80 virgins, that you get. That's what you used to get, in the old days.
STU: Seventy-two virgins.
GLENN: Seventy-two. Well, it's based on the American that are. So it's probably more now.
STU: It's thousands at this point.
GLENN: Hey. By the way, just a tip. If Israel is sending you home to your virgins, you've only got 72 of them, and all eternity. So, you know, don't get up there, like I have 72. Space them out. Space them out.
Anyway, so we've got that news. Meanwhile, people are still saying, I think this is wrong, what Israel is doing.
Really? You know, the president said yesterday, that on 60 Minutes. And, boy, was he dynamic. What a fireball that was.
He was asked if Israel should, quote, occupy Gaza. Here's what he said, cut six.
VOICE: Would you support Israeli occupational of Gaza at this point?
BIDEN: I think it would be a big mistake.
Look, what happened in Gaza, in my view. Hamas, and the extreme elements of Hamas, don't represent the Palestinian people. And I think that it would be a mistake to -- for Israel to occupy Gaza region.
GLENN: Okay. Stop for a second.
I don't think it's a mistake to occupy. Well, I mean, I wouldn't live there.
But I think Israel should park their car there.
You know what I mean?
Park a lot of cars there. It could be, you know, some sort of a parking lot, that they make it.
I think you should be done with this experiment. How many times do we have to do this, before people get it?
Hamas, and the Palestinian, the whole thing is a sham now, that doesn't mean that there aren't good Palestinians, et cetera, et cetera.
But that's not what this movement is about. Nor has it ever been about.
The Palestinian people, have been used. Over and over again, by people who just want to kill Jews. That's it.
That's been the -- the thing from the very the beginning.
Now, were there people that, you know, would like to share the land?
I'm sure. But you -- I'm sorry. Have got to treat the Palestinians that live in Gaza, and are in the Middle East. You have to treat them, the way we treated, all Germans.
All Germans weren't bad. But those Germans voted Hitler in.
And fought for Hitler. And they were like, it's -- you know, it's pretty great.
Well, it wasn't pretty great.
And as soon as the German people said, you know what, this isn't pretty great. I don't want anything to do with this anymore, it was over.
And the world could live together. And because of communist Russia, Germany got a two-state solution. And that worked out really well.
STU: And obviously you're exaggerating at some level of saying, you want to turn it into a parking lot.
GLENN: I mean, a nice one.
STU: Yeah, a nice one. But I would argue, why not just a park.
And I would use turf. It's really hard to maintain grass, in a large swath of land like that.
Just roll out the turf in that area. And no one lives there. Nobody. Nobody lives there.
I have no problem. You want to make it into farmland. Because the Palestinian people will need food.
Because Egypt will not feed them.
Israel and the United States were the ones sending the food into Gaza. And they're the ones that hate us.
That's fine. Make Gaza into a farmland. And then Jordan and Egypt.
Maybe even Iran.
Could take the Palestinian people. And divide up something like Egypt has a lot of land.
GLENN: A lot of land. A lot of land.
STU: A lot of open space there.
And again, a lot of these people, they're not -- they can't be this part of this country anymore. Right?
Like, there's just no way. It makes absolutely no sense. For Israel to have a -- a -- I don't know. An oasis for Hamas, in the middle of their country. It makes literally no sense.
You will have to find a different place to go. Look, we tried this. And stupidly, by the way. It was a stupid thing for Israel to try.
To say, hey. Well, what if we let them vote in Hamas. And see what happens in the next decade. It's ridiculous.
GLENN: That is key. They voted Hamas in.
STU: Yeah. And the same thing could be said for the Germans back in the day. They didn't really have a chance to change their mind. If they decided leadership wasn't so great.
They did vote them in. In a widely approved election. This was not something that people.
You know, watchers from around the world was saying, was a fake election. Or a bad, fixed election. He this put Hamas in power. Now, Hamas did not give them a chance to overall them later, and take them out of power. Maybe they all changed their opinion on Hamas.
Opinion polling does not show that, we should note.
Maybe now they have. Maybe they're so horrified by attacks. Who knows.
GLENN: The last opinion poll I saw. This was years ago.
The last opinion poll I saw, it was like 97 percent, or 93 percent of Palestinians agreed with killing the Jews.
Using terror. Cutting people's heads off. Killing civilians. Kidnapping children.
STU: It was very, very high.
And it was much higher than it should be, let's put it that way.
GLENN: So it was also people just last week, celebrating in the streets.
If my government. Let's be honest. If you found out today, that the United States was over kidnapping Russian children and just going into houses in Russia and just shooting innocent, you know, women and children, would you be out passing cookies outside? Because I wouldn't be. I would be ashamed.
STU: Look, and this is time for another asterisk here, right? These people have been indoctrinated. They're very similar to people who live in North Korea, who are told that Kim Jong-un is a God. Right?
You listen to the children from these regions, talking about the Jews. They've been taught this from birth.
GLENN: It's horrible.
STU: And it's very different --
GLENN: And you could say that about the Hitler youth. You could say that about the Hitler youth.
GLENN: But at some point, the Palestinian people need to stand up and say, we don't think it's right killing Jews anymore.
And unfortunately, history has shown us, the only way that happens, is to bomb the snot out of people.
And I'm sorry, but history has shown, when you have attempted over and over and over and over again, to be able to give people peace.
Hey, let's just live in peace. You do this. And I'll do that.
And just live in peace.
Nope. They're not interested. They're not interested.
They've been offered a two-state solution.
They turn it down.
Why? Because it's about killing all of the Jews.
That's all that is. Period. Period.
And, by the way, if anybody is feeling badly, I understand that.
I don't want to kill innocent women and children either.
Israel has a right to defend itself.
And if that's what you need to do.
By the way, they are dropping fliers, from the sky.
Been all weekend.
Please leave this area.
Please, evacuate. We're coming in the next 24 hours.
Well, we did that too.
We did that in Japan.
It's my pretty clear understanding, that would make us and Israel, the only ones that warn people.
Please, leave. Our war is not against you.
It's against your leadership.
And even -- even when we drop these -- sorry. 80 million of these fliers, in Japan.
Before we bomb them. It said, our argument is not with you. Our argument is with your government.
But you must tell your government to stop.
Well, they eventually did. Unfortunately, it took two bombs.
But eventually they did.
STU: Typical pro-western projected here on the Glenn Beck Program. As usual. This is exactly what I would expect you to say. You know, you don't even care about the innocent victims in Gaza. It's fascinating to see you at work.
STU: Yeah. And, by the way, you know, considering your evil pro-Western ways, it was nice to see you actually jumping in the fray a little bit, in Israel.
Finally decided to get off your horse -- get on your horse, and pick up a few people over there on some planes. It was good to see you -- how could I put it? Maybe in -- shamed by Ron DeSantis, who was already doing it.
GLENN: This is where you're going? This is where you're going?
STU: Look, I'm saying, I'm glad you finally got off your butt and help people in the Middle East.
GLENN: Wow. That's refreshing coming from you.
STU: People were so turned -- they were like, why were you going after Glenn about his not doing anything. After all he's done in Afghanistan and everything else.
And it's like, no. He can't say anything go. The mission is ongoing. So I can say he hasn't done anything this whole time on the air over and over again. And he can't defend himself, because these --
GLENN: Wow. Listen to him. So what he's trying to do is trying to make an excuse for himself. He's trying to make an excuse.
No. I was just kidding. Because Glenn couldn't defend himself.
You had no idea that we were sending --
STU: No. Really.
GLENN: You had no idea.
STU: Well, why didn't you say anything? If you were. If you were --
GLENN: Because I was so hurt by what you said on the air.
STU: Oh, okay.
GLENN: Anyway, yeah. Thanks to Mercury One and our partners, our first plane was supposed to be there yesterday. Leaving.
It has been delayed. And we are trying to get as many planes over there as we can. To rescue. Or, I'm sorry.
To bring home, as many Americans as we possibly can.
And there's more to this story.
But I can't speak about it now.
But please, pray for all those Americans, that don't have a way out.
By the way, we're not -- you know, I know we have these giant gray planes. You know, the president has access to.
And I heard this weekend, that they are going to start picking people up.
Which I applaud.
And then they're dumping them in Germany.
And then they're charging people. Thanks to Mercury One. And our partners.
We are picking people up in Israel. And we are bringing them home to the United States. And we are not charging anybody.
Which is very nice. But that is all thanks to you. And Mercury One.
And the NazareneFund.org.
