Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Questions Possible Ceasefire In Gaza

Independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. recently questioned the logic behind a ceasefire in Gaza.

During an interview with Reuters, the independent presidential candidate was asked a question about a temporary ceasefire in Gaza.

In response, Kennedy said, “I don’t even know what that means right now.”
Kennedy argued that Hamas, a terrorist organization, used previous ceasefires to “rebuild and then launch another surprise attack against Israel.”

“So what would be different this time?” the independent presidential candidate asked the outlet, arguing that Israel is not responsible for the ongoing Middle East war. He blamed Hamas for rejecting a two-state solution and for the terrorist organization’s history of brutality.

“Any other nation that was adjacent to a neighboring nation that was bombing it with rockets, sending commandos over to murder its citizens, pledging itself to murder every person in that nation and annihilate it, would go and level it with aerial bombardment,” Kennedy told Reuters.

“But Israel is a moral nation. So it didn’t do that. Instead, it built an Iron Dome to protect itself so it would not have to go into Gaza,” he added.

Kennedy said that on Oct. 7, 2023, — the day Hamas attacked Israel — the Holy Hand was left without a choice but to invade Gaza.

On the day of the brutal invasion, Kennedy pointed out that Israel would be required to launch a “sustained military campaign to protect its citizens.”

“Statements of support are fine, but we must follow through with unwavering, resolute, and practical action. America must stand by our ally throughout this operation and beyond as it exercises its sovereign right to self-defense,” the independent presidential candidate said at the time.

Interestingly, Kennedy’s stance on a ceasefire in Gaza resembles a stark contrast to several Democrats.

A coalition of House Democrats introduced a ceasefire resolution on Oct. 16, 2023.
“Hundreds of thousands of lives are at imminent risk if a cease-fire is not achieved and humanitarian aid is not delivered without delay,” the resolution states.

Prominent politicians like Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR) and Vice President Kamala Harris have spoken in favor of a ceasefire in the ongoing Middle East conflict.
