White House Pushes Israeli Cease-Fire

Secretary of State John Kerry arrived in Cairo Monday to help broker a cease-fire between Israel and Hamas. Israel has already accepted one cease-fire, only to have Hamas ignore it and continue firing. So Israel responded with a ground invasion of Gaza. Hamas is using civilians as human shields to the utmost effect, to the point where Barack Obama says, “We don’t want to see any more civilians getting killed. I have instructed [John Kerry] to push for an immediate cessation of hostilities.” Of course Israel wants a cease-fire, but it takes two to tango. And as for civilian casualties, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel does everything it can to prevent them, but “Hamas wants Palestinian civilians dead – the more the better.” Hamas, he said, is ensuring “this is the cruelest, most grotesque war that I’ve ever seen.”
