Auburn head basketball coach Bruce Pearl, who is Jewish, accused Barack Obama and Joe Biden of helping create the situation that enabled last weekend’s horrific terrorist attack on Israel .
Talk to Outkick Don’t @ me podcast, Pearl was furious that the Palestinian Jihad was being “funded” by the American taxpayer, Fox News reported.
Pearl added that Obama and Biden were “well-intentioned” in trying to “balance the balance of power in the Middle East.”
But the coach insisted it was a mistake that “led to terrorism”.
Pearl lambasted Obama and Biden, saying, “They emboldened them, they empowered them, and they made them rich. »
The coach also praised Donald Trump for turning the Obama/Biden tide.
“Trump is coming, and I know some people don’t like Donald Trump because he tweets or he’s not presidential, but his policies were perfect,” Pearl told Outkick’s Dan Dakich.
“He comes in and says, wait a second, is there money to kill? Wait a second, so Hamas and the Palestinian Authority are actually taking money, and if you kill a Jew or assassinate a Jew or if you go on this suicide mission, they’re going to take care of your family and pay for it? It’s ridiculous. We don’t fund that. And he cut it. He cut off Iran.
Pearl added: “Not since World War II has the world been so dangerous,” and said Israel is fighting for its survival.
“I don’t like to be divided, but here’s the deal: If Iran wants to call for Israel’s destruction, and they’ve been saying that since 1979 when the Shah was overthrown, I’ll take them at their word for it. this…” he said. “This is a Holocaust, this is a crime, and what is about to happen has nothing to do with revenge anymore. This is not about revenge. What Israel must do now is not a question of revenge, it is a question of survival.”
So far, more than 2,000 Israeli civilians have been reported dead as a result of the Palestinian attack. About 27 of them are Americans, a number that continues to increase as more victims are identified.
