Speech had humbled me.

As an American who love and support Israel, I am so greatful to hear this Democrat explain with clarity the war Israel is fighting and Hamas/PLA has started. This speech should be played on all news channels and social medias!!

Not enough

The US should make it their responsibility for getting the Gazan civilians out of Gaza. The US is responsible for the elections that established Hamas in charge in Gaza and now it's up to Israeli soldiers to go in on foot to clear out the mess? Without civilians present, Israel would be able to use full force to eradicate those ruthless terrorists that terrorize both Israeli and their own civilians. Let the Senator pressure his own State Dept. to force Egypt to open it's borders that the Gazan civilians can flee and Israeli soldiers can be at lesser risk when they enter to wipe out those gangsters. It is self evident that Israel is not only being ethical in this op but ethical to the point of selfless in their dedication to avoid civilian casualties. Israel needs the outside world to tell them to do "whatever it takes," and those who want to appear "righteous" need to do more than state the obvious.

Kol Ha Kavod Senator Schumer

Kol HaKavod Senator Schumer for having the moral strength to stand up and speak the truth abt. the current situation between Israel and the Palestinians. We need more people in positions of power to do as you have done!

Well said, but someone needs to tell the senator that the PA doesn't have a state

He seems a little unclear on this point. Otherwise very good.
