Gary Bauer's End of Day Report

We reported yesterday that Secretary of State Antony Blinken had returned to Israel this week to pressure Israel to extend the cease-fire with Hamas.  He failed.  The war resumed after Hamas murdered four Israelis yesterday and launched a new barrage of rocket attacks. Blinken failed because he’s pressuring the wrong people.  Hamas isn’t interested in peace with Israel.  Hamas, not Israel, broke this cease-fire, just like it broke the previous cease-fire on October 7th. But Blinken’s failure to renew the cease-fire pales in comparison to his betrayal of our ally Israel.
