(DCWatchdog.com) – To the benefit of the GOP, a rebellion has erupted inside the Biden administration, weakening the president even more and exposing the left’s fierce internal conflicts, but also bringing shame to the United States and proving radical leftist and pro-Islamist terrorism factions have infiltrated the government.
The anti-Biden revolt has occurred in the State Department, protesting President Joe Biden’s support for US ally Israel, after the latter was attacked a month ago by the Palestinian Islamist terrorist group Hamas, which massacred over 1,400 civilians.
A group of State Department employees has raised concerns over President Joe Biden’s handling of the conflict between Israel and Hamas, as revealed by an internal memo obtained by Axios, cited by The Daily Caller.
The memo, which doesn’t specify an incident, references Biden’s speech on October 10 concerning Hamas’ terrorist attack on Israel as an instance of the “misinformation” he is alleged to be spreading.
The initiative for this memo came from a junior State Department employee, who had previously criticized Biden’s pro-Israel stance as contributing to “genocide.”
This sentiment was echoed by 100 signatories from both the State Department and the United States Agency for International Development.
“Members of the White House and (the National Security Council) displayed a clear disregard for the lives of Palestinians, a documented unwillingness to de-escalate, and, even prior to October 7, a reckless lack of strategic foresight,” the memo reads.
The authors of the memo urge the Biden administration to advocate for the release of hostages held by both Hamas and Israel.
They also express concern that the president is not sufficiently questioning Israel’s response to Hamas’ attack and its implications for Palestinian civilians in Gaza.
The memo argues that Israel’s actions, including cutting off electricity and limiting aid to Gaza while attacking Hamas, could be construed as “war crimes and/or crimes against humanity under international law.”
“Yet we have failed to reassess our posture towards Israel. We doubled down on our unwavering military assistance to the (Israeli government) without clear or actionable redlines,” the pro-Hamas US government employees write further.
The memo reflects a broader critique within the Democratic Party and among Biden’s allies, who perceive his administration as being overly supportive of Israel, The Caller notes.
A State Department spokesperson acknowledged to Axios the diversity of opinions within the department.
“We understand — we expect, we appreciate — that different people working in this department have different beliefs about what United States policy should be,” the official said.
