All In Favor of Ceasefire Say Aye

The U.S. abstained on a vote for a ceasefire in Gaza at the United Nations. That may not sound like a bold move but for the U.S., it is! The U.S. has vetoed ceasefires for months, allowing Israel to continue its bloody siege on Gaza since October 7. This is the first time that the U.S. allowed the ceasefire vote to pass and Israel is furious about it.

Israel had planned to send a delegation to Washington to discuss its planned invasion of Rafah but those plans are canceled due to this strife. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that the move by the U.S. is “a clear retreat from the consistent position of the US in the Security Council since the beginning of the war.”

Yes it is. U.S. officials have allowed Israel to bomb Palestinians indiscriminately with unconditional support but Israel grows bolder in defying U.S. calls for restraint.

Former President Trump changed his tune on Israel this week too, now saying that Israel needs to “get this over with,” meaning the war on Gaza. He said: “We’ve got to get to peace. You can’t have this going on, and I will say Israel has to be very careful because you are losing a lot of the world. You are losing a lot of support.”
