Meretz Calls for Unilateral Ceasefire

Zahava Gal-on fears damage to Israel's image; no word on how she would respond to rockets.

Meretz Chairwoman Zahava Gal-On said Monday that Israel should declare a unilateral ceasefire in Gaza and call off Operation Protective Edge.

“We cannot eliminate the terrorist infrastructure,” Gal-on told Israel Radio. “… and the images being broadcast around the world are causing damage.”

Gal-on did not expound on how she would suggest responding to the rocket fire.

MK Zeev Elkin (Likud) said in response that Israel must not broadcast weakness to terror organizations. That, in turn, would lead to more rockets on Israeli civilians.

“We must continue to hit Hamas, with a ground invasion if necessary,” Elkin said. He continued to note that Israel should consider reducing aid to the Gaza Strip, as well as Gaza’s electricity and water supply.

  4. Israel would stop if hamas would stop

  5. Israel would stop if hamas would stop

  6. That women is insane

  7. Patrick Obi says:

    I HAVE SAID THIS BEFORE THAT IT IS IDIOTIC TO FEED AND FERTILIZE YOUR ENEMY. CUT OFF WATER AND ELECTRICITY SUPPLIES TO HAMAS AND CLOSE THE ROAD THERETO ENSURING NO ISRAELI FOOD GETS THERE. IN TIMES OF WAR, ECONOMIC WARFARE IS PERMISSIBLE!!

  8. Will this be as succesful as unilateral withdrawal from Gaza. Meretz is putting millions of Israelis in danger.

  9. If the left get control of government then death will follow

  10. We have to keep working towards a solution & NOT keep working in the problems. Meretz what solutions do you have to stop the rocket fire against Israeli civillian cities? I’m listening..

  11. …how about multilateral ceasefire… ;)

  12. Melinda Kay Rhodes Godwin I don’t think that Israel should stop if Hamas stops. A cease fire would just give Hamas time to regroup and rearm. Israel should only stop when the terrorist infrastructure is totally dismanteled. Otherwise they are puttting millions of Israelis in danger.

  13. she seem not affected by the down pour of rockets on Israel

  14. Linda Bax says:

    NEVER DO THAT ISRAEL STOP THE TERROR

  15. Matt Solomon says:

    Perhaps if she just “thinks happy thoughts” like in Peter Pan. Yes, I believe that would do it, “Happy thoughts.” Hamas will see the light and we will live in peace.Happy Thoughts have been so effectively used by the UN why didn’t we think of that before?

  16. send the leftist lunatics to live in gaza for a year

  17. She is what we call in America, a twit.

  18. She doesn’t understand the problem. It is the evil heart that rages against the Jew and no temporary ceasefire or concession of any sort will solve a heart problem.

  19. Izik Izik says:

    No only when hamASS surrounders

  20. Lily Weiser says:

    you are all either, blind, ignorant, stupid or erev rav, which is it?

  21. Aurel Iovitu says:

    this woman clearly has issues, I pity her

  22. Karen Bryant says:

    She clearly doesn’t understand Hamass if she thinks her plan would work.

  23. The left-wing loons of Meretz want Israel to stop shooting. Do they have any expectation that Hamas will stop shooting?

  24. Please don’t stop now!! You will fight this fight over again against a much stronger Hamas.

  25. Oren Meldung says:

    Nope. Meretz can pull out of Israel and move… running away doesn’t solve anything. just strengthens terror.

  26. This woman still thinking is a bed of flowers and in pink color, please wake up, you are not playing whit your dolls any more, this are millions of real Israeli/Jews life’s.
