A top leader in one of the world’s largest terrorist organizations praised the left-wing pro-Hamas protests that have erupted on college campuses across America over the last two weeks, saying that they are causing President Joe Biden to weaken his support for Israel.

The remarks late last week from Hezbollah Deputy Secretary-General Sheikh Naim Qassem were translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute.

“Biden is under internal and external pressure because of his policy and approach,” he said. “The pressure within America is more significant. He is at risk of losing the elections because of Gaza.”

“When the American people take a stand in support of Gaza … we salute and applaud them,” he continued. “We appreciate and value this very much. … The [campus protests] are important, especially because they will have an impact on the U.S. elections. They will have an impact on the American position. Even if Biden says that he will not be influenced by this, he will whether he likes it or not. We will see him taking actions because of the protesters’ influence on him.”

He said the Iranian-backed terror group, which is based in Lebanon, hopes that the protests so drastically shift public sentiment in the U.S. that “America will no longer support Israel to such an extent.”

“Without support, Israel is nothing,” he continued. “We would not have to work hard in order to destroy Israel. Without support, it will be destroyed.”
