U.S. Okays More Bombing in Gaza

The United States vetoed a UN Security Council call for a ceasefire in Gaza. Again. The U.S. was the only member to vote against this but the U.K. abstained.

Prince William did not abstain for calling for a ceasefire. Royals are not supposed to opine about politics but his royal highness went out on a limb and released a statement saying “too many have been killed” in the conflict. He called for more humanitarian aid, the release of hostages and “an end to the fighting as soon as possible.”

An Israel spokesperson said this in response: “Israelis of course want to see an end to the fighting as soon as possible and that will be possible once the 134 hostages are released and once the Hamas terror army threatening to repeat the October 7 atrocities is dismantled.”

In other words: No.

The U.S. says that it is drafting its own UN Security Council resolution to call for a ceasefire but, as Antiwar puts it, “the US warning is meaningless since the Biden administration is not considering imposing any consequences on Israel if it invades Rafah and is still providing unconditional military support.”
