On Monday evening, yet another “ceasefire now” rally was held by members of Congress. The faces were familiar, with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Jamaal Bowman, and Ilhan Omar all making speeches.

For their part, the first two decided to pretend they were Jewish because that’s apparently where we are now. Remember, cultural appropriation is bad unless it’s a “Latinx” acting as if she speaks for Judaism to demand they submit to a terrorist government that invaded Israel and killed over a thousand people. 

As absurd as that was, I was more interested in this comment by Ocasio-Cortez, though.

Isn’t she brilliant? You see, all Israel needs to do is formulate a “diplomatic solution.” Why didn’t anyone think of that before? I mean, it’s not like there already was a ceasefire on October 6th before Hamas terrorists decided to paraglide into a music festival to rape, torture, and murder innocent people. 

That bout of sarcasm brings me to the question none of these rabid “ceasefire now” hysterics are ever asked: Should Hamas remain in power? 

It’s the most obvious question possible, isn’t it? After all, any “diplomatic solution” would have to be worked out with the current government of Gaza. That just so happens to be a terrorist group that has pledged to keep attacking Israel until every Jew has been killed. So how exactly does that work? 

Ocasio-Cortez and company should be made to actually explain their position, but there’s a reason they are never asked to do so. Namely, press outlets know that the answer would inevitably lead to outright support of Hamas, and protecting Democrats from themselves is their top priority. There is no way to have a “diplomatic solution” at the current moment without Hamas retaining power. Thus, the calls for a ceasefire are effectively a pledge of support for Hamas continuing to be the ruling authority of Gaza.

How does that work out for the actual people living there? That’s a question no one ever asks either because Ocasio-Cortez and her like-minded cohorts don’t actually care. These mass demonstrations aren’t actually about civilian deaths. If they were, they would have been rallying when hundreds of thousands were dying in Syria and Libya. 

In the end, it’s just about destroying Israel directly or through a farcical “one-state solution.” Speaking of which, that’s a third question that’s never asked. Who would run this supposed “one state” in which Hamas and the Palestinian Authority have a free hand? Again, the answer would be rather inconvenient to the narrative so we’ll never get one. 

Regardless, I’ll return to the one big question that is most relevant now. In Ocasio-Cortez’s magic world, who runs Gaza if a ceasefire is agreed upon? She’ll never say, and she’ll never be put in a position to say.
