Israeli PM: Ceasefire demand is call for Israeli surrender

A Gaza war ceasefire would be the dangerous equivalent of an Israeli surrender to Hamas, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday, as he urged the global community to back his country’s military campaign to defeat the terrorist group.

“Just as the US would not agree to a ceasefire after the bombing of Pearl Harbor [in 1941] or after the terror attack of 9/11 [in 2001], Israel would not agree to a cessation of hostilities with Hamas after the horrific attacks of October 7,” Netanyahu said during an English-language briefing to the foreign press.

“Calls for a ceasefire are calls for Israel to surrender to Hamas, to surrender to terrorism, to surrender to barbarism, that will not happen,” Netanyahu stated.

He spoke on the 24th day of the war, which was sparked by Hamas’s massacre of over 1,400 people, many of them children, and the capture of 239 hostages when it invaded southern Israel.

Global sympathy for Israel after the attack has shifted to the Palestinians in Gaza, as Hamas asserts that the Palestinian casualty count is over 8,000. Israel has not provided data on the fatalities, but has said the deaths are from IDF aerial strikes or failed Palestinian rocket launches.
