Vice President Kamala Harris called for an “immediate ceasefire” in Gaza, but qualified it as lasting six weeks to allow for hostage release and aid delivery.

Some media portrayed this as breaking with President Biden, but Harris was essentially reiterating his existing proposal for a six-week truce as part of a hostage deal accepted by Israel.

“This will get the hostages out and get a significant amount of aid in. This will allow us to build something more enduring to ensure Israel is secure and to respect the right of Palestinian people to dignity, freedom and self-determination,” Harris said.

Biden had previously called Israel’s bombing “indiscriminate,” which Harris’s statement did not match.

Moreover, describing Gaza as a “nation” ignored it is a territory governed by Hamas, which launched attacks on Israel.

Harris’s demand aimed to please Democrats rather than truly break with Biden, as she restated his approach of negotiating a six-week ceasefire as part of a larger agreement to address the conflict and humanitarian situation.
