Calls for “ceasefire” in Gaza has become an increasingly common refrain from celebrities who claim to be impartial in Israel’s war against Hamas.
But a ceasefire would allow Hamas to re-arm and replenish its resources before it is allowed to resume its stated goal of eliminating Israel from the map.
Last month, Dua Lipa called for a “humanitarian ceasefire” in Gaza.
A group of A-list Hollywood celebrities including Joaquin Phoenix, Cate Blanchett, Channing Tatum, Jessica Chastain, Andrew Garfield, and Kristen Stewart recently signed a letter to President Joe Biden demanding “an immediate de-escalation and ceasefire in Gaza and Israel.”
