Here’s five words I have never said before: Senator Chuck Schumer is right.
While Secretary of State John Kerry worked to pressure Israel to stop defending itself against Hamas rockets, there is bipartisan support for Israel throughout Congress including Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer.
Senator Schumer said, “…[W]e’re not going to have peace if Israel is pressured to go for a ceasefire that allows Hamas to maintain its tunnels and its rockets…Let’s not forget one thing. Hamas is an organization that’s sworn to Israel’s destruction.”
Schumer explained, “It believes it has the moral right to do military action against Israel at any time. And so we can’t use these ceasefires as simply ways for Hamas to reload.”
