Netanyahu Says "Conquering" Gaza An Option As Touted 'Imminent' Ceasefire In Doubt

On the very day that Biden phoned Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to urge de-escalation in Gaza, which the US President said would set the stage for a ceasefire with Hamas, the Israeli leader told a group of foreign ambassadors that the only solution might be to "conquer" the Gaza Strip.

"There are only two ways that you can deal with them," he said about Hamas during the Wednesday briefing held in Tel Aviv. "You can either conquer them, and that's always an open possibility, or you can deter them, and we are engaged right now in forceful deterrence, but I have to say we don't rule out anything."

He made the comments Wednesday, while separately he had received the call from President Biden wherein he was told Israel must de-escalate its military campaign "today". By all accounts that did not appear to happen as the death toll into Thursday topped 230, with over 1,700 wounded. On the Israeli side 12 of its civilians have died from rocket fire out of Gaza.

Netanyahu further seems to have positively rebuffed Biden's request, which Axios describes as follows: "Netanyahu has resisted international pressure toward a ceasefire so far. In an apparent signal that he wouldn't be rushed, Netanyahu canceled a planned Cabinet meeting on Wednesday after President Biden urged him to move towards a ceasefire."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder, just what Netanyahu means by "conquering Gaza"?!?

Just how many Gazans will need to be assassinated, in order for that to happen, for Netanyahu?!?
