Today, Israel and Hamas agreed to a 72-hour humanitarian cease-fire in Gaza, while the White House called Israel’s actions “indefensible” after its munitions reportedly hit a school.
Tonight on Hannity, Lt. Col. Ralph Peters (Ret.) said the Obama administration is pandering to radical Islam and thereby “undercutting the chances of moderates in the Islamic world – those who don’t want Islam to be constant jihad.”
Peters said there is a mythology in the Obama administration that people like Hamas are “freedom fighters.”
He continued, “The disdain for Israel among the Obamacrats is just visceral. And thank you Mr. President, you appear to have saved Hamas for at least the next 72 hours. How this administration can draw any moral equivalence to Israel – which wants to live in peace – and murderous Islamist thugs who use their own people as human shields, it’s just stunning to me.”
The consequence of “running away” from situations, Peters said, is continuing conflict and the administration needs to recognize that sometimes you just need to "kill bad guys."
