The widespread demonstrations in support of Hamas after its barbaric slaughter of Israeli civilians is disappointing.
A “pause” or cease-fire would only allow the terrorists to regroup, rearm and launch more attacks. (They have vowed to do it “again and again.”)
The rise of virulent antisemitism, especially in the U.S., is alarming. That Jews fear leaving their homes, sending their children to school or being identified for their faith is reprehensible. The response of the administration to the risk to Jewish citizens was to create a body to combat Islamophobia. This would be humorous were the threat not so tragic.
