Hobbel: San Juan County's ceasefire proclamation shows very poor judgment and ignorance of history

  • Written by Ary Hobbel

Dear councilors,

You are fully entitled to your personal opinions, no matter how difficult they might be to debate or defend.

That said, with the unanimous resolution concerning the Israel-Hamas war, you have put on full display: very poor judgment, lousy representation of the islands’ population, cluelessness about military strategy and a pitiful ignorance of history!
