Lieberman, Bennett Protest PM’s Decision To Reach Ceasefire


Israel’s security cabinet agreed to a ceasefire with Hamas on Tuesday afternoon, in a decision that several government ministers later said they opposed. The decision was slammed by some opposition leaders, who called it a capitulation to terror after a two-day conflagration that saw over 400 hundred rockets and mortar shells fired at southern Israel.

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman, Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked, Environmental Protection Minister Ze’ev Elkin, and Education Minister Naftali Bennett proposed an alternative response, but it was rejected by the other ministers, according to the Channel 10 report.

But Housing Minister Yoav Gallant, who was at the meeting, said the ministers all accepted the decision, which was summarized by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and was not put to a vote.

  1. Even though I’m usually very right wing I don’t see any sense in not accepting the ceasefire.

    What is the alternative? To risk the lives of soldiers and civilians while rockets continue to rain down?

    And then what? Ultimately there will be a forced ceasefire anyhow. And the terrorists in Gaza will still be there afterwards. So what possible point is there in fighting further?

  2. All that will happen is the United Nations and their cronies will condem Israel for fighting a defensive battle. It will then be quiet for a while and the cycle starts again. Eisav soneh es Yaacov. It will never change. It’s a halacha.
