Charles Krauthammer calls attention toÂ the rejection of a ceasefire by Hamas, which Israel accepted. He says that had Hamas accepted, there would have been none of the deaths and none of the pictures that we are now seeing.
He talks of Hamasâ€™ responsibility for the missile war over Gaza, a war that Israel has absolutely no interest in fighting. He points out the type of response that would be coming from the United States if we were similarly attacked.
The Israelis are losing soldiers precisely because they have not reduced Gaza to rubble, that is the cause of their casualties, â€œthey are the ones with the moral high ground.â€ He adds â€œIf you allow a picture to alter that perception, you are not acting like a secretary of state.â€
