X owner and world’s richest man Elon Musk visited Israel on Monday to survey the horrors carried out by terror group Hamas during its October 7th attack on Israel civilians; he says “there’s no choice” —Hamas must be “neutralized.”
“There’s no choice,” said Musk, who also owns Tesla and SpaceX, adding: “I’d like to help as well.”
“Those that are intent on murder must be neutralized,” Musk said. “The propaganda must stop that is training people to be murderers in the future. And then, making Gaza prosperous. And if that happens, I think it will be a good future.”
Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu replied: “I hope you will be involved. And the fact that you came here, I think, speaks volumes to your commitment to try to secure a better future.”
Netanyahu showed Musk some footage of the Oct. 7 attack assembled from Hamas bodycams, CCTV and other sources.
When they last met, in California on Sept. 18, Netanyahu urged Musk to strike a balance between protecting free expression and fighting hate speech after weeks of controversy over antisemitism on X.
Musk said previously that he opposed anything that “promotes hate and conflict,” including any X content. In a possible reference to his solidarity visit to Israel, Musk posted on X earlier on Monday: “Actions speak louder than words.”
