Once again, today, there's a news article about a street demonstration in San Francisco demanding a ceasefire in Gaza. Several Bay Area cities (including mine) have passed resolutions demanding a ceasefire in Gaza. I've been thinking, and I have to get this off my chest.
Folks, neither side is listening to us and our "ceasefire resolutions." Certainly not to the cities of Oakland and Richmond, CA. The Israelis aren't even listening to US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, who said recently,
"In this kind of a fight, the center of gravity is the civilian population. And if you drive them into the arms of the enemy, you replace a tactical victory with a strategic defeat," Austin said, drawing on his experience as a four-star general overseeing the battle against Islamic State militants.
