Krauthammer’s Take: Israelis ‘Are the Ones with the Moral High Ground’

by NRO Staff

Last week, Israel accepted the proposal for an Egypt-brokered ceasefire in the Gaza Strip, while Hamas rejected it – it’s that rejection that explains the death and destruction in the region this week, Charles Krauthammer said Monday on Special Report.

“That’s a fact that you can’t refute even though [Palestinian politician Mustafa Barghouti] refuted it and said it never happened,” Krauthammer argued. Barghouti had appeared earlier on the show.

He added that Israel has no motive to start a war with Hamas, and is just responding defensively to Palestinian attacks.
