Billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk announced on Wednesday that all Tesla Superchargers are free in Israel as the nation reels from Hamas terrorist attacks that left 1,200 people – mostly civilians – dead and thousands more wounded.
“All Tesla Superchargers in Israel are free,” Musk posted on X, formerly Twitter.
After Hamas executed its surprise attacks on Saturday, Musk asked his followers on X, “What will it take to beat hate?”
“Be stronger than those who hate you, so that they cannot destroy you, and then forgive them,” he added.
Backed by Iran, Hamas is classified as a foreign terrorist organization by the United States.
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran’s Supreme Leader, praised the attacks, writing, “God willing, the cancer of the usurper Zionist regime will be eradicated at the hands of the Palestinian people and the Resistance forces throughout the region. #AlAqsaStorm”
Musk responded to the Iranian leader’s anti-Semitic post, saying, “Khamenei’s official position is clear that the eradication of Israel is the actual goal, not just supporting Palestinians. That will not happen. All that actually happens, decade after decade, is a never-ending cycle of violence and vengeance. Stoking the fires of hatred isn’t working. Perhaps it is time to consider something else.”
Echoing Khamenei’s message, a leader and founding member of Hamas, Khalid Mashal, reportedly called for a global Jihad, asking Muslims around the world to target the people of Israel on Friday, Oct. 13.
According to a translation and analysis of the video by author Brother Rachid, Mashal referred to his proposed day of anger as “the Friday of Al-Aqsa flood,” which will “send a message of rage to Zionists and to America.”
“The most important thing: He asked all Muslims around the world to carry Jihad by their souls; to fight and be martyrs for Al-Aqsa. He wants Muslims to fight against the Jews, starting with Muslims who live in the countries surrounding Israel: Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, and Egypt (but also other countries), to go to the borders and try to enter, each by his own means,” Rachid explained. “He said: This is the time for Jihad to be applied on the ground rather than just in theory. He asked the Mujahedeen to go in long caravans to spell their blood on the land of Palestine.”
