A Hard Pill to Swallow

A poll conducted in the WhatsApp group of Kan 11 News on Tuesday, following the interview with Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich, asked the participants whether they agree with Smotrich’s remarks that the most important goal right now is to defeat Hamas.

More than 1,600 respondents supported Minister Smotrich’s opinion and answered “yes, victory is more important”. Only 353 supported the answer “no, the most important thing is the return of the hostages”.

Never has Israel had a harder decision to make but on the other hand, it’s an easy one. Indeed, this is a hard pill to swallow but if Hamas is not eliminated then Gaza and terrorism remain an ongoing threat to Israel.
