Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. slammed Left-wing commentator Krystal Ball during a recent interview after she falsely claimed that Hamas supports Israel’s right to exist.

The exchange happened during an episode of “Breaking Points” when Ball argued that Israel killing the Hamas terrorists responsible for the October 7 massacre would be “tremendously radicalize” Palestinians into becoming terrorists.

When RFK asked Ball how she would propose eliminating the Hamas terrorist organization, she claimed that Israel could launch a “targeted raid” to kill Hamas terrorists similar to how the U.S. killed Osama bin Laden. She also said that Israel needed to drive a wedge between Hamas and the Palestinian people.

When RFK began to talk she repeatedly talked over him and tried to cut him off.

“I think you’re filibustering, you’re not answering the question,” he responded. “You’re saying drive a wedge. Well, of course, Israel is trying to drive a wedge.”

She claimed that the Palestinians wanted “a two state solution or some sort of a just and lasting peace.”

“The Palestinians not only have rejected that, but Hamas, its whole purpose was, the reason that Hamas was able to get all this popular support and take over was because of its opposition to any negotiation,” he fired back.

Ball then claimed that Hamas “recognizes Israel’s right to exist.”


RFK immediately tried to interject, but Ball continued to talk over him.

“Krystal — I cannot let you. I just cannot let you tell that,” he said. “It’s just not true.”

RFK then noted that top Hamas official Ghazi Hamad said during an interview after the October 7 attack that Hamas supported the annihilation of Israel.

“The existence of Israel is illogical,” Hamad said. “The existence of Israel is what causes all that pain, blood, and tears. It is Israel, not us. We are the victims of the occupation. Period. Therefore, nobody should blame us for the things we do. On October 7, October 10, October 1,000,000 – everything we do is justified.”

RFK later addressed the amount of support that the Palestinians have received from the international community over the years, calling them the “most pampered people by international aid organizations in the history of the world.”

Ball then claimed that the Palestinians have been starving for a long time.

“And why is that? Why do you blame Israel for that?” RFK fired back. “First of all, Israel has no obligation. Israel built 3,000 houses and gave them for greenhouses. That would have made Gaza completely food self-sufficient, gave it to them as a gift. Offered to rebuild the port of Gaza to make it the Singapore of the West. Hamas said, ‘No, we don’t want you’re money. We don’t want you’re ideas.'”

“And what did they do? The international aid agencies have given Hamas, have given Gaza more than 10 times per capita what we gave to rebuild all of Europe after the Marshall Plan,” he continued. “They’ve gotten $8,300 per capita, every person in Gaza. We rebuilt Europe with $621 per capita in Europe, and we rebuilt it. What did they do with that money? Instead of using it to make this, you know, Gaza this beautiful country with white sand beaches. It should be a paradise. Hamas said, ‘we don’t want that.’ They take virtually all the money and they steal it. So the top five, the top five leaders of Hamas are billionaires. Ismail Haniyeh has $5 billion, according to Forbes.”

Ball again tried to interrupt and talk over Kennedy.

“Let me just finish. You are making a statement that is just wrong,” RFK said. “It’s not Israel’s fault that Gaza is poverty stricken. Gaza should be one of the wealthiest states on the Mediterranean.”

Ball responded by claiming that Israel “controls everything” and that the U.S. was funding the bombs that were killing Palestinians inside Gaza.

“Krystal. Krystal. Krystal, why are you insisting on blaming Israel? Why don’t you blame Hamas?” he responded. “You know what most of our tax dollars have gone for? The Iron Dome, which is a way of not invading Gaza. Our country and Israel, for 16 years, have expended this huge amount of money to try not to go into Gaza, while Gaza sent 2,000 rockets a year, suicide bombers, and of course Israel —”

Once again, Ball interrupted.

“Listen, if Mexico attacked us and we built a fence. Would you blame us for caging in Mexico?” he responded. “Everything in your mind is telling you to blame Israel, instead of blaming Hamas.”
