And…Ceasefire in Ukraine?

'And...Ceasefire in Ukraine?' Luca M Damiani - Kiss and Arrow 2024 -

Every weekend

there is a Pro-Palestine

and Ceasefire march

in various cities

around the Western world.

At these marches,

there are mainly three segments:

some people are clearly pro-Hamas;

some people are clearly anti-Israel,

some are clearly just for Peace.

The first two segments,

anti-Israel and pro-Hamas,

are just marching for their own aims,

we know that.

The other segment,

genuinely for Peace,

are understandably just marching

for that matter and good cause.

I think we all (or almost all)

fully agree with concept

of Peace and I think we need that.

The issue is that Hamas

(who are Palestinians btw,

and not the innocent ones)

has never accepted

a ceasefire in all these years,

as they kept launching rockets

every single day and week

into Israel from

their own Gaza.

There was actually a Ceasefire

until October 7th 2023,

and Hamas broke it

with thousands of rockets in a few hours,

and with then a real

“one by one” massacre

in the most genocidal way

they could do.

But let’s just put that on a

“Pause” for now.

I just have 3 questions

for the Ceasefire marchers

who I know really do have a good intent:

What about Ceasefire in Ukraine?

How many times have you asked for that?

How many weekends have you marched for that?
