On Saturday, Benny Gantz, a member of Israel’s War Cabinet, threatened to resign with a June 8 deadline unless a six-point plan to address the war in Gaza is adopted.

As previously reported by The Dallas Express, the months-long conflict kicked off in October 2023, when Hamas terrorists invaded southern Israel, killing more than 1,000 people and kidnapping dozens of others.

Israel launched a retaliatory incursion in the aftermath of the attack, seeking to dismantle Hamas and its military capabilities in Gaza. The military campaign has prompted left-wing agitators in the United States and parts of Europe to organize solidarity demonstrations in support of Palestine and against Israel, the most high-profile of which have been encampments on college campuses, as DX reported.

Here’s some of what WFAA had to say about Gantz’s potential resignation:

“Gantz spelled out a six-point plan that includes the return of hostages, ending Hamas’ rule, demilitarizing the Gaza Strip and establishing an international administration of civilian affairs with American, European, Arab and Palestinian cooperation. The plan also supports efforts to normalize relations with Saudi Arabia and widen military service to all Israelis.

“He gave a June 8 deadline. ‘If you choose the path of fanatics and lead the entire nation to the abyss — we will be forced to quit the government,’ he said.

“Polls suggest Gantz as the most likely candidate to be the next prime minister. That would expose Netanyahu to prosecution on longstanding corruption charges.”
