Arab Nations To Push Gaza Ceasefire At UN

They know the U.S. will veto it. Also, none of the nations pushing the resolution are offering to take the extremist and dangerous Palestinians in

The UN Security Council is voting on a Gaza cease-fire on Tuesday, with the US certain to veto

Arab nations are putting to a vote a U.N. resolution demanding an immediate humanitarian cease-fire in Gaza, knowing it will be vetoed by the United States but hoping to show broad global support for ending the Israel-Hamas war.

The Security Council scheduled the vote on the resolution at 10 a.m. EST (1500 GMT) Tuesday. U.S. Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield says the Biden administration will veto the Arab-backed resolution because it may interfere with ongoing U.S. efforts to arrange a deal between the warring parties that would bring at least a six-week halt to hostilities and release all hostages taken during Hamas’ surprise Oct. 7 attack in southern Israel.

What does it do?

In addition to an immediate ceasefire, the Arab-backed draft resolution demands the immediate release of all hostages, rejects the forced displacement of Palestinian civilians, calls for unhindered humanitarian access throughout Gaza, and reiterates council demands that Israel and Hamas “scrupulously comply” with international law, especially the protection of civilians. Without naming either party, it condemns “all acts of terrorism”

This would all be unnecessary if Hamas hadn’t broken the previous ceasefire. The only acceptable ceasefire terms are Hamas releasing all hostages and surrendering, particularly their leadership, then changing the entire governmental structure to end their threat to Israel, along with blockades which do not allow material for war into Gaza.

In a surprise move ahead of the vote, the United States circulated a rival U.N. Security Council resolution that would support a temporary cease-fire in Gaza linked to the release of all hostages, and call for the lifting of all restrictions on the delivery of humanitarian aid. Both of these actions “would help to create the conditions for a sustainable cessation of hostilities,” the draft resolution obtained by The Associated Press says.

U.S. deputy ambassador Robert Wood told several reporters Monday that the Arab-backed resolution is not “an effective mechanism for trying to do the three things that we want to see happen — which is get hostages out, more aid in, and a lengthy pause to this conflict.”

Will it dismantle Hamas? Will it end their threat to Israel and Jews? Will it make Palestinians less murderous? When will Arab nations take Palestinians in?

    These “Arab ” nations are those the ones that are Trump’s business partners ? The ones paying him millions to host their golf championships on his courses?
    Biden is going to veto the ceasefire, would Trump?

    Total of dead Palestinians now about 30,000. 3p% adult men, 70% women and children of whom about 5000 are tickets under age of 4 years.
    Hamas had said it has had about 6000 of its 30,000 fighters killed.
    80% of those killed in Gaza have been non Hamas

    The last of asylum for the Palestinians is like the lack of asylum that the USA failed to provide to European Jews because of the political power of the right wings of both American parties.

    … it condemns “all acts of terrorism”.

    Well, that’s a start. Give credit where it is due.

    … linked to the release of all hostages, and call for the lifting of all restrictions on the delivery of humanitarian aid.

    Shows the US Govt is every bit as disconnected from reality as it has always been WRT Mid-East Policy.

    1. Hamas cannot release all the hostages because they have already sold some of them and the new owners are not giving them back. And many of them are dead. The taking and keeping of slaves is a long and honorable Islamic tradition that continues to this day in places where Islam is strictly followed.

    2. “Aid” to Hamas is always a cover for resupplying their military needs. Always. “Unrestricted” is always a cover for “no inspections to prevent weapons smuggling”. Always. Hamas is not defeated. They will without doubt control the distribution of any aid that goes into Gaza and personally and collectively profit from distributing. We don’t have to guess about this, we have seen it over and over.
