Thousands march for Israel in Washington: “No to ceasefire”

Yesterday the video of the bloodiest scenes of the Hamas attack was shown to a group of deputies and senators

Dozens of thousands of people marched on the National Mall in Washington chanting the slogan “no to ceasefire” in Gaza in the “march for Israel”. Also speaking at the event were the Senate Majority Leader, Democrat Chuck Schumer, and Speaker Mike Johnson, who called the calls for a ceasefire “shameful”.

“We stand by your side in the bloodiest assault launched by Hamas against the Jews since the Holocaust and there are hundreds of hostages, many of them Americans who are still in Gaza – added the Republican -. Israel will cease the counteroffensive when Hamas will cease to be a threat to the Jewish state.”

Also yesterday, a few hours after the raid by Israeli forces on the Al-Shifa hospital in Gaza, Israeli diplomats in Washington organized on Capitol Hill for a group of 150 Democrats and Republicans, a screening of the 45-minute video with the montage of the bloodiest scenes of the Hamas attack on 7 October. Israel is showing the video to members of foreign governments and the international media to counter the pressure, which is becoming increasingly stronger even within the Biden administration itself, to call for a ceasefire in Gaza.
