Hillary Clinton says those demanding ceasefire ‘don’t know Hamas’

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton pushed back on activists demanding a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, saying such an agreement would be a “gift” for the terrorist government.

The former presidential candidate made the remarks during the James A. Baker III Institute for Public Policy’s 30th anniversary event on Thursday. 

“People who are calling for a ceasefire now, don’t understand Hamas,” Clinton said, according to The Jerusalem Post. “That is not possible.”

Clinton offered to wait for the heckler after the event to listen and respond to their question, but the audience member would not relent.

“Respectfully, I do not believe you. And the fact of the matter is that the American people’s voice is what needs to be heard, because … because our president is not speaking for the American people, and neither are you,” he responded.

“Well, then sit down! We heard your opinion. Thank you very much,” Clinton interjected.
