A ceasefire is what we should prioritize now. A ceasefire protects civilians on both sides. It doesn’t just say, “We’re only concerned about people on one side.” I’ve been to Sderot, I have stuck with those people, talking about those rockets and that indiscriminate rocket fire – and I’ve also been to Gaza three times since 2009. And I can tell you, those people are absolutely devastated….we need a ceasefire now.
