The world recoils in horror over Israel’s ongoing 41 day near genocidal ethnic cleansing of Palestinians in Gaza. Many thousands reported dead with untold more under rubble of nearly half of Gaza’s buildings destroyed and damaged. Over 1,500,000 of Gaza’s 2,300,000 citizens have been displaced. Yet, the bombs follow them as they head south, away from the carnage in and around Gaza City. Most food, water, medicine and electricity have been shut down. Babies die in dark hospitals that are still standing.
All this largely made possible by Biden’s near total support of billions in weaponry and related military assistance. Biden claims sympathy for the decimated Palestinians. But his deeds enabling their being systematically pushed out are dirty and dastardly indeed.
It takes a lot for over 400 government officials to demand Biden stop this carnage which he is capable of doing. But Biden and his team of ethnic cleansing cohorts have made it easy for them to resist.
Joe Biden has been supporting perpetual US wars, direct on proxy, for his entire 50 year government career. But he’s saved his dirtiest and most foul destruction of human life in Gaza for last.
