Democrats Working on International Occupation Force in Gaza

We’re going to end up with Americans on the ground in Gaza.

Talks are underway to establish a multinational force in Gaza after Israel uproots Hamas, two senators confirmed Wednesday, the clearest sign yet that the U.S. and its partners are seriously weighing deploying foreign troops to the enclave.


Sens. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) and Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) told POLITICO that there’s early, closed-door diplomacy over establishing a peacekeeping force in Gaza, though it was not likely to include American troops.




Bloomberg News first reported that the United States and Israel were in discussions about establishing a peacekeeping force to maintain order in the enclave. In a statement to Bloomberg, NSC spokesperson Adrienne Watson denied that “sending U.S. troops” to be part of the coalition was under discussion.

    Iran, the MB, and their various proxy militias are never going to accept a UN fighting force in Gaza and a typical Barney Fife-style UN peacekeeping effort would be effectively useless. The fact that Iran and the MB have sacrificed Hamas should clue geniuses like Van Hollen and stolen valor Blumenthal to the resolve of Israel’s foes. Cocktail party diplomacy ain’t on their agenda.
