Netanyahu invokes 9/11, Pearl Harbor in rejection of leftist demands for ceasefire

The response to Israel taking defensive measures after suffering the most savage attack on Jews since the days of Adolf Hitler and the Holocaust is playing out to script, with the left rising in unison around the world to cry about human rights in Gaza, which is controlled by the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas.

However, after seeing 1,400 mostly civilians killed and brutalized in unimaginable ways, and a couple hundred more taken hostage and returned to Gaza, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is not being moved by tears that didn’t fall as profusely for his butchered countrymen.

Netanyahu said there would be no ceasefire in the immediate future after IDF forces entered the Gaza Strip, comparing the Oct. 7 attack to the 9/11 terrorist attack and the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, which drew the United States into World War II.

“I want to make clear Israel’s position regarding the ceasefire. Just as the United States would not agree to a ceasefire after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, or after the terrorist attacks of 9/11, Israel will not agree to a cessation of hostilities with Hamas after the horrific attacks of Oct. 7,” the prime minister said. “Calls for a ceasefire or calls for Israel to surrender to Hamas, to surrender to terrorists, surrender to barbarism, that will not happen.”

“The Bible says that there is a time for peace and a time for war. This is a time for war. A war for a common future,” Netanyahu continued.

After noting there will be “difficulties” and “losses,” Netanyahu vowed, “I promise you one thing: Hamas will be crushed. Hamas will be defeated; there will be a different Gaza.”

National Security Council coordinator John Kirby was asked about the United Nations adopting a resolution calling for an “immediate, durable and sustained humanitarian truce leading to a cessation of hostilities” in Israel on Monday.

“We do not believe that a ceasefire is the right answer right now. We believe that a ceasefire right now benefits Hamas and Hamas is the only one that would gain, he said, adding, “What we have said is temporary localized humanitarian pauses.”
