Elon Musk visits Isreal, backs war against Hamas
Popular Tech mogul, Elon Musk has visited Israel and declared support for the war against Hamas.
Musk said that “There’s no choice” in Israel’s resolve to destroy Hamas.
Musk made this known on Monday, during his meeting with Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, and other stakeholders, in Kfar Aza, Israel.
Musk arrived in Israel on Monday to meet with Netanyahu, President Isaac Herzog, other officials, and victims of the October 7 Hamas attack, as well as the families of hostages, after being accused of promoting antisemitism with his social media platform, X.
The billionaire decided to visit Israel less than two weeks after he endorsed an antisemitic conspiracy theory on his X platform, which led to major companies pulling advertisements from the microblogging site.

Accompanied by Netanyahu, Musk began his visit by touring some towns in southern Israel that were among the worst affected by the Hamas’ October 7 onslaught.
During the tour of Kfar Aza, Musk was shown the horrors of the Hamas attack, which saw terrorists storm the community and 20 or so others.
According to Musk, the experience was “jarring”. He also noted that he was struck by what appeared to be “joy” on the part of the terrorists in the video.
