Former Ambassador to Israel Martin Indyk as quoted in Monday’s New York Times.
The administration needs to work on a package deal in which Hamas commits to preventing attacks from, and all smuggling into, Gaza. In return, Israel would drop the blockade and allow trade in and out.
Yes indeed let’s work on that package deal! Israel allows Hamas to resume importing war material – and in return Hamas solemnly promises not to renew war. Who wouldn’t accept a winner proposition like that?
