(DCWatchdog.com) – Far-left radicals who happen to be US K-12 teachers are trying to force Joe Biden to bow to the Palestinian Islamist terrorist group Hamas as they demand that the National Education Association, America’s biggest labor union, pull its endorsement for the president otherwise.
According to reports, a number of teachers are exerting pressure on NEA to withdraw its support for President Joe Biden.
This action is in response to Biden’s decision to continue providing aid to vital US ally Israel and his failure to insist on an immediate ceasefire in the conflict in Gaza, the territory that Hamas used to conduct its October 7 massacre of over 1,400 Israelis and 33 Americans.
According to the report, the lefty teachers have initiated a campaign across various NEA chapters nationwide by distributing a petition.
The petition outlines several demands: an enduring ceasefire; stopping all US military aid, equipment, and intelligence to Israel; forcing Israel to end its blockade of the Gaza Strip and terminate its settlements in the West Bank; and forcing the Jewish State to set free all Palestinian terrorists in its custody.
The radical leftists also demand that Israel dismantle its “illegal apartheid wall,” guarantee equal rights for all Palestinians, and support the right of return for Palestinian refugees.
The Nation’s report includes statements from Rahaf Othman, a social studies teacher in Illinois.
Othman shared that she started experiencing “nightmares” when Israel initiated military strikes against Hamas in Gaza in October.
Othman did not comment on the violent and unprovoked attack by Hamas on Israel on October 7.
“I was functional at work, but barely functional. My brain was mush. I was getting traumatized every time I turned on my phone. For the first month, people were asking me what we should do, but I couldn’t think, couldn’t focus. Educators rallied together and created this group, Educators for Palestine. I am grateful they brought me along for the ride,” she recounted.
Additionally, Aaron Phillips, a fifth-grade teacher in Texas, also commented on the situation.
“There’s a growing group of board members that support [the move to withdraw a Biden Endorsement]. If I were to make a motion, I’m confident I would have a second and would have a growing group of board members stand with me,” Phillips said.
