Dennis Kucinich Queries Whether Israel Can Survive without a Ceasefire

Dennis Kucinkch from his X page.

The “Dennis Kucinich Report” for today posed the question: “Can Israel Survive If There Is No Ceasefire?” His analysis details how the U.S. phony friendship towards Israel only increases the danger to their country. An answer to his question might well be, “No, friends don’t let friends drive genocidally.”

After detailing some horrible cases of the undeniable murder of Palestinian civilians, former U.S. Rep. Dennis Kucinich points out in his Dec. 19 “Report” that these “deaths come on the heels of Hamas’ Oct. 7 atrocity as the cycle of violence builds year after year with a root cause, the illegal occupation, carefully avoided…. Retribution (revenge) has morphed into calculated ethnic cleansing.”

But, the U.S. vetoed the UN Security Council move for a ceasefire: “Biden and Netanyahu are in this together. They need each other. Biden gives Netanyahu cover internationally to purge Gaza and the West Bank. Netanyahu gives Biden legitimacy as a defender of Israel in the runup to the 2024 election, especially in those constituencies sensitive to Israel’s concerns.”

However, this is not U.S. friendship towards Israel. “True friends would have advised restraint and a path to solve the conflict, not accelerate it, as Israel has done. True friends would have led Israel to address the cause of Oct. 7: The occupation of a people who live without most basic freedoms, further exacerbated by the attack on the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem, one of the holiest sites in Islam…. The U.S. could stop the war today if the Biden Administration wanted to do so. But it does not. The question is, why not? These are not the actions of a friend, because friends tell friends what they need to hear, not what they want to hear.”
