Voices getting louder against Biden’s support for war crimes in Gaza

GAZA,(The Palestine Information Centre)Voices are getting louder in the United States of America against the blatant role of president Joe Biden and his administration in providing Israel with political support and weapons to continue its deadly attacks on the Gaza Strip.

Hundreds of Americans, many of them Jews, organized an open sit-in at the US Congress headquarters on Wednesday to demand an end to Israel’s US-backed genocidal war on Gaza.

Some Congress members participated in the sit-in, including Democratic representative of Palestinian origin, Rashid Tlaib, who gave a speech during the protest.

Addressing the protesters while crying for Gaza victims, Tlaib criticized Biden for helping Israel continue its genocide in Gaza.

“I’m telling you right now president Biden, not all America is with you on this one. And you need to wake up and understand that,” she said. “We are literally watching people commit genocide and killing a vast majority just like this, and we still stand by and say nothing. We will remember this,” she added.

Since the first day of the conflict, Biden has kept adopting Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu’s lies — albeit debunked by testimonies and proven facts — and funding and participating in Israel’s daily massacres in Gaza. Israel’s attacks on Gaza have claimed, according to the latest statistics, over 3,500 civilians, mostly children and women.

“But all of you, you need to know, I swear to God, you are on the right side of history. You are doing everything possible to save lives,” she told the crowds.

The peaceful demonstrators, many of them Jewish activists wearing shirts emblazoned with the words “Not in our name,” held banners and chanted slogans calling for ceasefire in Gaza, saving Gaza, and ending Israel’s apartheid and terrorism in Palestine

Later on the same day, some 500 protesters were arrested during the sit-in at the Congress, according to Jewish Voice for Peace, the group that organized the demonstration.

About 10,000 people also marched against the Israeli war on Gaza in the streets of the US capital, Jewish Voice for Peace wrote on X.

In a related incident, Josh Ball, director of the Office of Congressional and Public Affairs in the US State Department’s Bureau of Political-Military Affairs, announced his resignation from his position due to president Joe Biden’s administration’s handling of the Israeli war in the Gaza Strip.

Josh Paul said in a statement on the LinkedIn platform that he decided to resign due to a political dispute related to “the continued provision of lethal aid to Israel.”

In an interview with HuffPost news website, Paul also said that he felt “forced to resign” because he was unable to push for “a more humane policy within the American government.”

Paul, who spent more than 11 years in the Office of Political-Military Affairs that handles arms deals, said he had largely discussed “policy change efforts associated with controversial arms sales,” adding: “It was clear that I could not change anything here. Accordingly, I submitted my resignation.”
