Senator Fetterman: There’s only one clear, right side and that’s with Israel

Feb 12, 2024 | Read Now, Voices

Senator John Fetterman (D-PA) on Sunday spoke to Channel 12 News’ US correspondent Yuna Leibzon about his support for Israel.

“For me personally, it’s been just incredibly easy to be on the right side. And I believe the right side is with Israel. Some people call that moral clarity. It is my job as a senator to be on the right side on any issue, and especially after October 7, there’s only one clear, right side and that’s with Israel,” said Fetterman.

On the protests against him, Fetterman said, “If you’re going to protest and demanding a ceasefire, why aren’t you instead demanding that the hostages be brought home? And why aren’t you demanding that Hamas surrenders?”

“If you brought home the hostages, and if Hamas surrenders and puts down their guns, all of the death and the trauma and the damage would stop at that very moment, and then we can talk about a ceasefire. But until Hamas is effectively neutralized, I could never support a ceasefire or until every last hostage is brought back home,” he added.

More recently, anti-Israel protesters showed up outside Fetterman’s office, chanting accusations of genocide. He, in turn, responded by waving an Israeli flag from the roof of the building.
