Jon Stewart on Israel, Hamas cease-fire - "We cannot be Israel's rehab sponsor and its drug dealer "
On Thursday night’s Daily Show, host Jon Stewart continued to try and make heads or tails of America’s actions in Israel. Despite the fact that Secretary of State John Kerry has repeatedly tried to broker a peace deal between Israel and Hamas, Stewart finds the nation’s actions a little confusing.
Moments after a 72-hour ceasefire was announced between the two countries, Israel asked the United States for more weapons, which the United State was ready to provide.
“Maybe they’re just running out of sh*t to blow up…maybe it’s the opportunity for peace that as we heard earlier, the administration has been working tirelessly towards,” Stewart said.
“Guys! We cannot be Israel’s rehab sponsor…and its drug dealer…It’s not gonna work, just say no!” Stewart bemoaned.

There is a new and unique development in human history that is taking place around the world; it is unprecedented in reach and volume, and it is also the greatest threat to all global power structures: the ‘global political awakening’. -Andrew Gavin Marshall
