(FixThisNation.com) – Jill Stein, the Green Party presidential candidate who had also run for the White House in 2012 and 2016 warned that the direction taken by U.S. leaders and President Joe Biden could potentially lead to a nuclear war following their support for Israel.
Stein announced on November 9 that she would be once again against joining the 2024 presidential cycle. Stein, who is considered a long-shot candidate, slammed both parties and President Biden over their response to the war between Israel and Hamas during a recent interview with Newsweek. During the interview, she argued that this could lead to them being pushed to a point of no return.
Palestinian militant group Hamas carried out a surprise attack on Israel on October 7, which resulted in the death of around 1,200 Israelis. In response, Israel declared war on Gaza, which is under Hamas control. As part of their retaliation efforts, they cut off access to electricity, food, and fuel in the region. They also launched heavy airstrikes which have resulted in around 11,000 Palestinian being killed since the start of the war.
The U.S. government has maintained that Israel has its full support and they have previously classified Hamas as a terrorist group. There are currently 14 U.S. Navy ships stationed in the Mediterranean ready to assist Israel by gathering intelligence on other actors in the region who are involved in the conflict.
Stein has argued that the response of U.S. officials in the conflict was “shameful” and that a nuclear submarine has now been sent to the region. As she points out this one submarine is the “equivalent to about four or 5,000 Hiroshima bombs.”
