Hundreds of federal government officials have signed a dissent letter in rebellion against Democrat President Joe Biden’s handling of the Israel-Hamas war.
Four hundred government officials from 40 departments and agencies within Biden’s administration signed the letter.
They are opposing the president’s handling of the Israel-Hamas war and demand a “ceasefire.”
The Tuesday letter was first reported by the New York Times.
It includes officials from Biden’s State Department, White House, National Security Council, and the Department of Justice (DOJ).
The signatories of the letter remained anonymous to protect against professional retaliation.
The letter reads, in part:
“We call on President Biden to urgently demand a cease-fire; and to call for de-escalation of the current conflict by securing the immediate release of the Israeli hostages and arbitrarily detained Palestinians; the restoration of water, fuel, electricity, and other basic services; and the passage of adequate humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip.”
Biden and other Western leaders have pushed back on calls for a “ceasefire” in Gaza.
They argue that it would only serve to benefit Hamas terrorists.
Biden’s administration has instead pushed for humanitarian pauses in the fighting.
Israel has agreed to pauses and has opened up passageways for Palestinians to leave Gaza and for aid to enter.
The White House has not responded to the letter.
So far, the only major Western leader to call on Israel to implement a ceasefire is French President Emmanuel Macron.
Macron later clarified his remarks on Monday, however.
He added that he still believed Israel has a right to defend itself.
The disagreement within the Biden admin mirrors friction within the Democrats regarding the Israel-Hamas conflict.
Several radical Democrats have decried Israel as an “apartheid state.”
Some even argue that the war in Gaza is a “genocide” against Palestinians.
Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) faced a public rebuke from the House of Representatives for her comments on Israel last week.
Israel’s war against Hamas is coming to a head this week as Israeli forces surround Al-Shifa Hospital.
Al-Shifa is the largest medical facility in the Gaza Strip.
Israel says Hamas has entrenched its headquarters beneath the hospital, which serves as a human shield for the terrorist group.
His Party has forgotten to never let a crisis go to waste. This is their chance to war with Syria and Lebanon. All they have to do is pretend they support Israel.
This time (can’t believe I’m saying this) Joe is right not to intervene. It’s Isreal’s war, let them conduct it as they see fit.
Well,we know at least 400 “”gov’t crap thinks it is okay to wipe Israel off the map...Every name should be put out there and they should be fired.....Annnnd never get another job..Period.....
They can go to h-ll,with their “ceasefire.” This will be over when Hamas surrenders or are all killed. No more Hamas!
I think this tri angulation BS. The polling is such that Traitor Joe has to perceived as supporting Israel but the rats also need the support of the muzzies so some have been tasked with placating them.
it must be national brotherhood week
Good. Now Trump knows who to fire.
He is intervening behind the scenes.
Telling Netanyahu to stop the attacks.
Netanyahu telling Biden to STFU................
Anonymous? What are they really up to?
It is a public letter. They should be known by name. Who elected them anything. Hey, Hamas, don’t start nothin, won’t be nothin.
I would send every last one of them to Gaza to fight for their cause then revoke their passports and put them on the no fly list
I am very good at translating "government speak" into plain English and what they are saying is as follows. "WE SUPPORT HAMAS. WE DESPISE ISRAEL AND THE JEWS."
I hope that Team Trump is recording those names.
This is great, these idiots just completed a list of individuals to be fired first in the next Trump administration.
Thanks for saving us time.
Two bits says these people are all hold-overs from the Obama administration.
Indeed. These are 400 deep state saboteurs who need to be doxxed and fired wherever possible, and black listed from any future employment with the government.
It has been known for many years, you can’t get hired by the U.S. State Department unless you are a lunatic Leftist.
The entire State Department should be moved to North Dakota into quonset buildings, down a gravel road, in the middle of nowhere, with no cell phone service or Internet.
Electricity, heat and water ONLY... outside porta-potti’s for restrooms.
Isolate these kooks so they can keep their jobs and paychecks but have no effect upon sane, decent people.
Foggy Bottom has been leftist since FDR and before.............
