Kerry's Ceasefire Proposal Exposed: Full Surrender To Hamas
John Kerry's ceasefire proposal as presented to Israel would have fully capitulated to Hamas' demands:
The popular and widely-watched Saturday evening newscast quotes several unnamed high officials in the Israeli government who claimed that Kerry's cease fire proposal represented a "complete cave-in" to Hamas's demands for an end to fighting in its war against Israel.
The official, and others cited in The Times of Israel, claimed that Israel was "stunned" and "absolutely horrified" that Kerry's ceasefire proposal, which contained no demand that Hamas dismantle or destroy its terror tunnel network. It demanded that both Israel and Egypt open their border crossings with Gaza, from where all the devastating weapons of war were initially imported. Furthermore, the Kerry plan did not simply call for Hamas to be allowed to build a seaport on its Mediterranean coast; but that Israel and Egypt should help pay for it. [...]
Israel's multi-party security cabinet was so taken aback by the pro-Hamas scope of the Kerry proposal, they initially refused to believe they were real. "It must be a misunderstanding," the source told Channel 2.
