Hamas Doesn’t Find War With Israel Intolerable

Nov. 19, 2023 10:36 am ET

Regarding “Obama, Hamas and ‘Complicity’” by Elliot Kaufman (op-ed, Nov. 7): When I heard Barack Obama state that the “occupation” was “intolerable,” it seemed to me that if conditions were truly intolerable, rather than mounting a complex and beastly assault, wouldn’t it have been a lot easier for Hamas to pick up the phone, call the Knesset and say, “This is intolerable. It’s time to sit down and talk peace”?

But the fact is, what Hamas terrorists find intolerable is the idea of living in peaceful coexistence with Israel. They are clearly willing to put up with everything else.
