Sen. J.D. Vance (R-OH) rejected over the weekend that a push to send humanitarian aid into Gaza as Israel would help to rid the area of the terrorists responsible for committing the October 7 attacks.

Vance made the remarks during an appearance on CBS News’ “Face The Nation” when asked about his concerns that the aid could end up in the hands of Hamas terrorists.

“I think there’s still a lot of evidence with a lot of these international organizations that when we send aid into Gaza, a lot of it goes into the wrong hands,” he said. “And that’s what those of us who are critical of the president’s posture are really worrying about. We don’t want to basically fund two sides of the exact same conflict. Fund Hamas. Fund Israel. It seems like a really bad deal for American taxpayers. Most of all it’s just stupid.”

“If I could wave a magic wand and give aid to the Palestinian children, I will,” he continued. “But given the realities on the ground, I think we divert resources to Gaza, it’s going to fall in the wrong hands.”

Vance noted that some of the NGOs that are supposed to be helping civilians actually have “compromised positions.”

“We can’t assume that just because it flows to an international organization it’s going to go to the kids and not to the fighters,” he said.
