US rejects Mideast ceasefire calls, says would benefit Hamas

The United States is concerned that a ceasefire in Gaza could benefit Hamas, allowing them to regroup and continue launching attacks. The European Union is considering a humanitarian pause for aid delivery.

WASHINGTON, UNITED STATES — The United States warned Monday that any Gaza ceasefire by Israel would benefit Hamas, as the European Union considers a call for a humanitarian pause.

A ceasefire would “give Hamas the ability to rest, to refit and to get ready to continue launching terrorist attacks against Israel,” State Department spokesman Matthew Miller told reporters.

“You can understand perfectly clearly why that’s an intolerable situation for Israel, as it would be an intolerable situation for any country that has suffered such a brutal terrorist attack and continues to see the terrorist threat right on its border,” he said.

Miller said that the United States was separately working to ensure a flow of humanitarian relief into Gaza, with a US envoy, David Satterfield, on the ground working “intensively” on aid.

EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said earlier Monday that he expected the bloc’s leaders to back a call for a pause in fighting to let in aid.

“I believe that the idea of a humanitarian pause to facilitate the arrival of humanitarian aid, which would allow displaced persons to find shelter, is something that the leaders will support,” Borrell said after talks with EU foreign ministers in Luxembourg.

When you dehumanize an entire people (including civilian women & children) by using terms such as ‘human animals’ or ‘rats’, it’s easier to exterminate them. Just ask the Nazis.

Tell them to flee to the south WHILE bombing the south.

The system is set such that You or your Friends benefit from it. The People or Citizens NeVer benefited from the Bullshit Narrative spun by the Official leader one side and the Unofficial leaders by the other sides. So what benefit the people have?! Tell me or enlightened the ppl???

Wars created by the leaders on both sides to benefit themselves. NOT for the People!!!!!

This is genocide. It is no more for defence purposes but an invasion. Biden may pay a political price for fanning the killings of civilians. The US may have its own agenda in the region and may be using the Zionists.
