13. Very important paragraph

Nov 2023
Hamas must release all the hostages without conditions and lay down their arms. And Hamas, which continues to defend the savage slaughter of Israeli citizens on October 7th and advocate for the obliteration of Israel, has to go. It can no longer have operational control of Gaza.


I suspect if Hamas did all of this, Israel (or at least the reasonable majority within it) would be very happy to have a ceasefire.
