“In terms of a permanent ceasefire, I don’t know how you could have a permanent ceasefire with Hamas who had said before October 7, and after October 7, that they want to destroy Israel,” he said. “They want a permanent war. I don’t know how you have a permanent ceasefire with an attitude like that.”
“I think Israel has the right to defend itself and go after Hamas,” he added.

"The United States stood alone at the U.N. Security Council on Friday to block a United Nations resolution demanding an immediate humanitarian cease-fire in Gaza," Fox News reported.
"The vote in the 15-member council was 13-1, with the United Kingdom abstaining. Blinken said Sunday that while Israel must continue its campaign, 'it's imperative that civilians be protected,'" it continued.
Sanders offered a view held by the majority in Congress but that has been opposed by many Democrats.
Those opposing have largely been the most radical of the left, including members of the Squad who have blasted the Biden administration's support of Israel.
Sanders shows that not everyone on the left agrees with a cease-fire with Hamas, as the terror group killed 1,200 people in one day in the largest single attack on Jews since the Holocaust.
Israel continues to fight to stop any future Hamas attacks while also seeking the safe return of more than 240 hostages taken into Gaza. The attacks by Hamas also killed over 30 Americans, plus 10 American hostages taken by the terror group.
