President Biden has frequently been criticized for not leading his administration. Many fear that he is doing the bidding of the far left, despite the consequences to the country.
Progressive Democrats have been demanding Biden bow to their whims on nearly every issue. From the border to the economy, it appears Biden is not making the best decisions for America.
Now, a very big problem is brewing. A large group of federal officials have signed a letter, confronting Biden on an issue many see as non-negotiable. If Biden bends to their demands, it could mean devastating consequences.
From Fox News:
Four hundred government officials from 40 departments and agencies within President Biden’s administration signed a letter opposing the president’s handling of the Israel-Hamas war and demanded a cease-fire.
The Tuesday letter, first reported by the New York Times, includes officials from the State Department, White House, National Security Council and the Justice Department. The signatories of the letter remained anonymous to protect against professional retaliation.
Despite making bold and unprecedented demands on the president, this group chose to remain anonymous. Critics might wonder how officials can attack others while hiding from the consequences themselves.
Four hundred officials within the Biden administration are slamming Biden’s decision to support U.S. ally Israel in its war with Hamas. This group is demanding Biden call for a ceasefire–which even Hillary Clinton said would only benefit the terror network.
This group also demanded Biden secure “immediate release of the Israeli hostages.” It’s unclear how this group believes Biden could do that while calling for a ceasefire. The letter also wanted “arbitrarily” detained Palestinians released, not clarifying what this meant.
This group of Biden officials also demanded Israel restore “water, fuel, electricity and other basic services” to a region whose civilians have been evacuated and contains mostly terrorists.
In addition to all this, the group is demanding Biden provide “adequate humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip.” President Biden has already pledged hundreds of millions of U.S. tax dollars to aid Gaza, despite the fact that most aid sent to the region is stolen by Hamas.
It is alarming that so many Biden officials are defying the president. Progressives who are currently criticizing Israel’s war seem to downplay the horrific actions by Hamas on October 7th. They have also accused Israel of being an “apartheid” state and largely misrepresent its history in the region.
Many will find it unthinkable for the U.S. to pull support for Israel, the only true democracy in the Middle East, in favor of a terrorist network. Yet this trend has grown so large within the Democratic Party, that it is creating a rift among its members.
But how Biden responds to this letter is unclear. Could the president bend to these demands, out of fear of losing support in 2024? Should the U.S. pull support from Israel, the consequences would be catastrophic for that nation and the world.
- Four hundred Biden officials signed a letter, demanding he pull support from Israel.
- The letter called for a ceasefire, the release of “detained Palestinians,” and aid for Gaza.
- Progressives have sided with Palestinians, dismissing October 7th and slandering Israel.
