Are you sitting down? According to Reuters, US Secretary of State John Kerry said that Israel has a national right to defend themselves from Hamas’ rocket attacks from Gaza;
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Sunday.”You have a right to go in and take out those tunnels,” Kerry told Fox News. “We completely support that. And we support Israel’s right to defend itself against rockets that are continuing to come in.”
Yep, aren’t you glad you were sitting down? Not only that, Kerry urged Hamas to accept a ceasefire with Israel;
Kerry called on Hamas to consider a ceasefire. “It is important for Hamas to now step up and be reasonable and understand that (if) you accept the ceasefire, you save lives,” he said.In a separate interview on CNN, Kerry said President Barack Obama will ask him to go to the Middle East soon to aid in efforts to secure a ceasefire.
I know, it’s hard to believe, isn’t it? Usually, they like to bully Israel into accepting whatever terms that Hamas dictates to them. I guess they figured that since world wide popular opinion is siding with Israel this time, and they have their hands full with crises like the border and Russia, they could afford to punt one.
