Actor Jon Voight spoke out to support Israel amid what he called the “Hamas Holocaust.” The celebrity, who’s no stranger to speaking out on politics and faith, shared a sad video to his X account, turning to the Old Testament to share a message on the Holy Land.

He said, “Let me read something for you. Israel, I love you. Israel will stand tall for the land of its sacred soil. These sick-minded beings have been evil since birth; they’re trained to destroy. God’s power, along with the Israeli army, will end this destruction and the power of this evil. It will be destroyed once and for all so the Jewish people can be in peace, live in safety — to live life. L’Chaim.”

The Academy Award-winning actor added, “Let me assure you by the almighty power of God and the power of Moses, who once stood in the power of evil forces, that this is the Holocaust. It’s the horror that was witnessed by the Jews of Auschwitz, and I have come now to warn the evil ones that God will show truths again. He shall win this war for His people, as when Moses was able to lift the Red Sea.”

Voight told his social media followers that “the memory of this Hamas Holocaust will haunt all, but we shall heal; we shall make sure this will never happen again.” He added, “The world is mourning with you. And the U.S. stands with you and, as Moses says, let our people go. Much love to you, Israel. Much love.” Voight’s message comes amid the ongoing war between Israel and Hamas, the terrorist group governing the Gaza Strip.

The death toll in Israel, which continues to climb, has reached at least 1,200 civilians dead, at least 170 soldiers slain, and more than 3,500 Israelis wounded. Additionally, Hamas terrorists have kidnapped some 150 Israelis and gruesomely murdered dozens of Jewish infants. Soldiers with the Israeli Defense Force are currently staging a land invasion along the Gaza Strip. The Israel Defense Forces said they have finally secured the border with Gaza and found the bodies of 1,500 Hamas terrorists four days after they invaded southern Israel and killed or kidnapped more than 1,000 Israelis.

“In the last day, not a single terrorist entered via the fence,” said the IDF’s top spokesman, Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari. Speaking in an address to the nation Monday night, Prime Minister Netanyahu said Israel is in “a war to ensure our existence, a war that we will win.” He said,  “Israel is at war. Israel didn’t want this war. It was forced upon us in the most brutal and savage way. But though Israel didn’t start this war, Israel will finish it … Hamas will understand that by attacking us they’ve made a mistake of historic proportions.”
