No ceasefire now

Former US secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton this week came out in favor of Israel’s position that Hamas’s rule in Gaza must be terminated and that a ceasefire now would be a sign of surrender.

“A full ceasefire that leaves Hamas in power would be a mistake. For now, pursuing more limited humanitarian pauses that allow aid to get in, and civilians and hostages to get out, is a wiser course,” Clinton wrote in an op-ed published on Tuesday in The Atlantic, titled “Hamas must go.” It argued that a truce would give Hamas “a chance to rearm and perpetuate the cycle of violence.”

Clinton’s position, which is said to be in line with that of the Biden administration, is contrary to the stance of the “Squad,” the progressive wing of the Democratic Party, whose members – such as Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib – have called for an immediate halt to the Israeli offensive in Gaza.
