Ceasefire my ass!

I remember FDR calling for a cease-fire after Pearl Harbor.

The ‘Ceasefire’ in Gaza Mirage

Calls by some Democrats for both sides to end the violence now are a license for Hamas.

Right on schedule, the Democratic Party’s anti-Israel faction is responding to Hamas’s assault with calls for a “ceasefire” and an end to the violence. This is a mirage that will protect Hamas and guarantee more violence.

Reps. Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez condemned the assault on Israel. But they followed that up with calls for both sides to end the violence even as Hamas militia were gunning down Israeli women and children in their homes.

“An immediate ceasefire and de-escalation is urgently needed to save lives,” said Ms. Ocasio-Cortez. Ms. Omar chimed in that “we need to call for deescalation and ceasefire.” These are the first of what are likely to be many such calls from the Democratic left as Israel responds with force to the war Hamas started.

A ceasefire now would reward those who started the war that by this writing had killed 700 in Israel. These include many foreign nationals and probably some Americans. Is Israel supposed to tolerate this deliberate murder and not retaliate against those who planned and executed it?

Israel has a right to self-defense, and that means eradicating the threat from Hamas, and from Hezbollah in Lebanon if it comes to that. The failure to do so will mean more violence in the future as the Islamists who are backed by Iran conclude the Jewish state has lost its willingness to fight. Israel also has a right to rescue its citizens who have been taken as hostages to Gaza, even at the risk of more casualties.

Hamas fighters hide behind Palestinian civilians so they can play to Western sympathy, but that is another reason for eliminating Hamas and Islamic Jihad as threats. They terrorize Palestinians as well. The time for a ceasefire is when Israel has defeated its enemies.

Who skipped Bibi's speech to Congress?

I have to give the Dems credit on this one. Bibi is a flaming asshole and has weakened his nation. The IDF now openly admits they can't get rid of Hamas and Gaza lies in ruins. Mission accomplished.
