Let's get back to our top story secretary of state Hillary Clinton traveling to Egypt this morning to push for troops.
Between Israel and Gaza's Hamas rulers after negotiations broke -- Is there any way to salvage this and avoid an all out ground war is that even a good idea maybe not.
Here now ambassador -- regular former Israeli ambassador to the United Nations and a Fox News contributing your -- -- in the maybe not in fact here in the not category you don't think -- cease fire really makes sense from the Israel point of view why.
Well -- today is a very special day for me because the that bus bombing let that happen until Aviv -- -- 200 yards -- my hope.
Belmont and I'm going back to Israel tonight I'm going back to a very I'm -- and very ominous situation.
And naturally you know anybody in that position would say let's put a stop to it lets you know on and let's have some peace and quiet.
But you have to understand who we dealing with -- dealing with the book Barrick evil brutal terror organization that is intent on destroying -- -- And is a must -- these weapons in order to try and kill as many civilians.
Including women and children's possible so.
I don't see.
A cease fire doing any good appreciate the -- -- of Secretary Clinton.
I have great respect for her and I'm sure that she and the president really want to put an end to this but you know -- going two to Cairo.
Is in the way like -- are going to Afghanistan and Pakistan.
Trying to that -- Qaeda to stop terrorizing the world we've booked this group that has to be eliminated that -- to be.
We cannot live in a neighborhood where we have a group of people who would dedicate it to -- Europe and to making.
Children live on the -- Attack and under threat -- every day live and -- -- -- and and and not go to school you know children in this country fair will be.
Celebrating Thanksgiving and soon be hearing the sound of -- -- submitted to them and Israel over the last twelve years because of Hamas.
As you'd have lived through the sound psychiatrists rockets vs systems -- And explosions we because it's many of them has hit look obvious Israel engaged in a ground incursion into Gaza 20082009.
How would this be any different.
It has to be different because obviously the ground in -- inclusion into Gaza.
The last time was not with the intentional from the many think Hamas this time it would was.
How would you eliminate -- Hamas we really can it be done.
I believe it can be done that can obviously be done -- very high cost it.
Would probably be done with a look to civilian casualties -- so -- and now we've tried to avoid -- -- -- really enraged the Arab world against Israel.
Let me tell you something about the Arab world great communion myself that the UN for six years and I was did -- in the second Lebanon war and I was also very active doing the operation cost lead which was in Gaza.
I cannot even stopped telling you.
The number of presidents prime ministers kings amuse and sultans from the believe me there's no sympathy in the Arab world for Hamas Hamas is supported by -- -- the only ones want to see them survived and prevailed.
The reunions the rest of the Arab world would celebrate even if -- could -- -- -- them.
Something else if Hamas was gone.
You know I spent a lot of time in the west bank and down in Gaza I met with terrorists I met with the families of homicide bombers in the one distinct.
Impression I walked away with is that you know for every.
Terrorists there's ten waiting to fill his or her shoes.
So again I asked the question can Hamas really -- -- down.
Look I think you you've been to the west bank and -- into Gaza and you've seen the difference the worst West Bank -- is thriving cities like Nablus and Ramallah and -- Have great economy's -- safety great security.
And I believe at the end of the day the most Palestinians want to live like that they don't want to live and this -- largest prison -- -- -- that the Gaza.
The -- to -- is live.
On the floor above -- messiah.
And you know when you go to sleep with a -- so we'll be surprised if in the wake up in the morning but that's the reality these people.
-- using their own people as hostages they have no value for human life neither -- was -- their -- In -- way they would love a ground invasion because they would try and kill as many Israelis -- possible.
And couldn't care less about the number of Palestinians -- in -- they probably think the pictures of you know killed civilians would serve them well so this is a very very brutal and evil enemy and as you said.
I mean there may be others coming they think everyone say they -- think they've got 72 -- waking up there for them.
But I think we should do everything to root them out because as long as they -- there.
Israel would not be able to live under the threat mr.
ambassador Dan -- always good to see you sir thank you thank you very much Heather.
