Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is asked at his foreign media press conference whether he has considered stepping down in the wake of the October 7 Hamas onslaught. He says he has not.

“It seems that the level of support that you have among the Israeli public has dropped considerably,” a reporter says. “So the question is, how can you continue to lead this country effectively during a very difficult time? And have you at all considered stepping down?”

“The only thing that I intend to have resign is Hamas,” Netanyahu replies. “We are going to resign them to the dustbin of history.

“That’s my goal. That’s my responsibility. That’s what I’m leading the country to do. This is my responsibility now,” he says.
