Protest outside White House as Israeli PM seeks assurance of U.S. support for apartheid on Liberation News

Please TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW and send your letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor.

Noting that Biden and Bennett were meeting to solidify their ties, she said: “It is further proof — as if more is needed — that the peace process has always and will continue to be a sham. It is evidence that we as Palestinians were never meant to have a say in our future, but are instead expected to take some sort of deal handed to us from above … When we resist as a people, Biden’s response is to invite our oppressor into his home. He claims progressive values, but what is progressive about genocide? After the Zionist regime dropped bombs on Gaza for 11 days straight, Biden sent an extra $735 million in weapons from Boeing to the Zionist regime.”

Marching in a broad circle around the White House grounds, the protesters chanted, “Bennett, Bennet you can’t hide, we charge you with genocide!”

Palestinian Nakba Day Commemorated in DC Amid Israeli Aggression on The DC Post

Please TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW and send your letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor.

DC-based political analyst and policy advisor Mohammed Khader, who attended the rally, calls the Nakba “one of the largest planned ethnic cleansings in modern history.”

“For decades, Palestinians have been dehumanized under apartheid and forcibly displaced from their land by US-funded efforts,” Khader told The DC Post. “As a Palestinian, I attended the rally to join thousands of Palestinians, along with those in solidarity with Palestine, in the streets of DC to demand the US Government sanction Israel for their crimes against humanity, stand against the genocide and ethnic cleansing of Palestine, and call for an end to the ongoing Nakba, which has been sustained under Israeli apartheid and the occupation of Palestine.”

Describing President Joe Biden’s silence as “extremely loud” for not openly calling for a ceasefire, Khader likened the US government’s current stance to “the same misguided approach taken during the Rwandan Genocide, where US officials explicitly refused to label it a genocide because it meant they would be required to act. Like what Reagan was to South Africa, what Clinton was to Rwanda, and what the US was to Cambodia.”

ICC under Biden – a revolutionary shift in policy from Trump – analysis by Yonah Jeremy Bob

Please TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW and send your letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor.

 … it is hard to argue that general support by Biden for the ICC to continue to prosecute genocide is not a good thing.But the next big question becomes whether the Biden administration will continue to try to protect Israel from ICC scrutiny and whether it will put any teeth behind that backing as the Trump administration did with sanctions…. The hope in Israel is that the world’s gain in greater support for combating genocide does not come in parallel to efforts to reduce the complex Israeli-Palestinian conflict to a one-sided criminal case.

Joe Biden and the Palestinians: Reflections from an Anti-Zionist Jewish American by Benay Blend

Please TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW and send your letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor.

There are many countries who have done the same or worse than Israel, so why single this issue out as a litmus test for not giving away my vote? In short, those countries are not committing genocide in my name.
Why should other voters who have no personal connection to Palestine care about Biden’s political position? While Israel might not be committing atrocities in their name, Biden claims that Israel and the United States share similar values, a mutual worldview that makes sense of a strong alliance.
Racist, anti-immigrant, neo-liberal economies—alas Biden might be right on this for both countries share similar settler-colonial histories.
In a recent interview, historian Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz puts the recent “reopen” protests into an historical context that makes this very clear. Just as Israel practices a policy of ethnic cleansing, so the procedure of “eliminating people,” she says, is “baked in [America’s] founding, Constitution and military.”
It’s always there “as a possibility,” she says, as it is now for anyone with a compromised immune system, “this idea to just get rid of them,” “cull out” the elderly, the poor so that the economy can re-open.

How the United States and Israel Have Normalized a Culture of Complicity by Benay Blend

Please TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW and send your letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor.

According to Phillip Weiss, Democratic candidate Joe Biden has now broken with Obama’s albeit lukewarm criticism of the Israeli state. When Biden’s surrogate declares that “he won’t allow any ‘daylight’ between Israel and the United States, won’t air dirty laundry in public, won’t ever lower military aid” to the Zionist state, he is really voicing his employer’s support for genocide of the Palestinian people.
