Israel Says There Will Be No Ceasefire Till All Hostages Are Returned

It really is a simple concept. Most people and countries calling for a “humanitarian pause”, which would allow Hamas to get a breather and then launch more attacks on civilian Jews, but, rarely call for all the hostages to be returned

Israel Rejects Ceasefire Calls as Forces Set to Deepen Offensive

Israel on Sunday rejected growing calls for a ceasefire in Gaza, with military specialists saying that forces are set to intensify their operations against Palestinian Islamist group Hamas, with no time frame set for their activities.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu demanded that all of the more than 240 hostages captured by Hamas during its Oct. 7 attacks are returned.

“There will be no ceasefire without the return of the hostages. This should be completely removed from the lexicon,” Netanyahu told crews at the Ramon air force base in southern Israel, reiterating the government’s long-standing position.

“We say this to our friends and to our enemies. We will simply continue until we defeat them. We have no alternative.”

Are the hostages alive? No one knows. Hamas hasn’t said. They aren’t putting out propaganda or anything else. If the Palestinian people are not part of Hamas, if they just want to live in peace with Israel, perhaps they should overthrow Hamas, instead of having supported them since they were elected back in 2006.

Israel’s military says it has surrounded Gaza City; Gaza loses communications again

Gaza lost communications Sunday in its third total outage of the Israel-Hamas war, while Israel’s military said it encircled Gaza City and divided the besieged coastal strip into two.

“Today there is north Gaza and south Gaza,” Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari told reporters, calling it a “significant stage” in Israel’s war against the Hamas militant group ruling the enclave. Israeli media reported troops were expected to enter Gaza City within 48 hours. Strong explosions were seen in northern Gaza after nightfall.

The “collapse in connectivity” across Gaza, reported by internet access advocacy group and confirmed by Palestinian telecom company Paltel, made it even more complicated to convey details of the new stage of the military offensive.

Yeah, well, is it a wise idea to allow your enemy to communicate easily in the midst of a war? It’s expected that the Israeli military will enter Gaza City this week after surrounding it and splitting Gaza in two. Let the hostages go and all Hamas fighters, especially those in charge, should turn themselves in, and this can end.

Meanwhile, Nazis in Illinois

(Breitbart) Hecklers shouted “kill the babies” to taunt a protest Sunday organized by Jews in Skokie, Illinois, to highlight the fact that 30 children, including babies, are being held hostage by the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas in Gaza.

The Times of Israel reported:

Jewish community members in Skokie outside of Chicago have organized an exhibit of 30 empty strollers to raise awareness about the 30 children currently being held hostage in Gaza along with roughly 210 others.

Several people driving by shout obscenities at the Jewish participants, including, “kill the babies!”

A source told Breitbart News that more drivers and passersby were supportive of the protest than opposed.

There are always horrible people in the world, and the Jew haters are showing their stripes.

    Over 4000 children (also “civilian”) have been killed in Gaza, most by having bombs dropped on them or by artillery/tank fire. Virtually all Israelis (except for Israeli Arabs who are not permitted) ages 18 to 54 (male) 18 to 34 (female) are enlisted in the military. Do you think their siblings will blame Hamas or Israel for their deaths? Bin Laden stated that the reason for 9/11 was to provoke the USA into a war against a Muslim country. He got more than what he wanted when Bush invaded and tried to occupy 2 countries. Although teach applauded for both invasion/occupations he chose not to enlist. Neither war were successful in improving the national security of the USA and instead became causes for radical Islam to spread, just as Bin Laden hoped. Hamas hoped Israel would over react and unite the Muslim world (many fossil fuel exporters!) Syria has changed from trying to destroy Hamas in Syria to supporting them.

      So, the guy who once told us that just 100 square miles of solar panels could power the entire United States wrote:

      From Wikipedia:

      Since the Israeli Declaration of Independence in 1948, fixed-term military service has been compulsory in Israel. The draft laws of the Israel Defense Forces only apply to citizens of three ethnicities: Jews (males and females), Druze (males only), and Circassians (males only). As the Druze and Circassian communities are less populous, their women are exempted from the draft laws altogether. Women from the Jewish majority are not exempted from the draft laws, but serve for slightly shorter terms than their male counterparts. Israel does not conscript Arab Muslims and Arab Christians, though men and women from either of these two groups may enlist voluntarily.

      Unique among the country’s Jewish-majority population are the Haredi Jews, who have traditionally enjoyed full exemption from mandatory military service through a special government arrangement (Torato Umanuto) that was organized by Israel’s founding prime minister David Ben-Gurion. However, this arrangement has become increasingly controversial in Israeli society, with growing discontent towards the increasingly populous Haredi community not “sharing the burden” of national duty.

      As of 2022, the minimum required length of military service is two years and eight months (with some roles requiring an additional four months of service) for all conscripted men, and two years (with some roles requiring an additional eight months of service) for conscripted Jewish women.[1] Once they have completed their mandatory term of service, all discharged citizens remain eligible to be called up for reserve duty until the age of 40. Draftees may be exempted from military service on humanitarian, religious, or certain legal grounds.

      That’s a pretty far cry from “Virtually all Israelis . . . ages 18 to 54 (male) 18 to 34 (female) are enlisted in the military.”

      Google is your friend; perhaps it would be wiser for you to use it before you write things about which you know little or nothing.

    And how many children were killed in WWII? Korea? Vietnam? Iraq? Afghanistan? Israel?

    Note that in each case the conflict was started by Nazi’s, Communists, Fascists, Muslims.

    And unless you served, do not write of others lack.
