Anger and Division in Washington: Unjustifiable Israeli Attacks

As the war between Israel and Palestinian factions in the Gaza Strip enters its second month, with the death toll reaching approximately 10,500, including around 4,500 children, anger and concern are spreading within the corridors of the U.S. administration.

Calls directed at U.S. authorities are increasing among government employees to support a ceasefire. Some top officials in President Joe Biden's administration secretly confirmed that there are aspects of the Israeli military operations they cannot simply defend.

Multiple sources revealed that several officials are appalled by the continuous images of Palestinian civilians being killed daily in Israeli airstrikes, as reported by CNN. One senior official in the administration stated, "The airstrikes and the number of Palestinian casualties have created significant moral concern, but no one can say that publicly because we all work according to the President's wishes."

Strongest Reactions

Some of the strongest reactions have emerged from within the Department of State, particularly after a prominent official resigned last month due to the Biden administration's approach to the conflict. Recently, hundreds of employees of the U.S. Agency for International Development sent an open letter to the Biden administration urging it to call for a ceasefire—a request that the administration has rejected so far.

This discontent coincides with a somewhat divided stance between the United States and Israel regarding the future of Gaza. This comes after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu suggested a few days ago that his country would take responsibility for security in Gaza for an "indefinite period."

While Secretary of State Antony Blinken opposed any "reoccupation of the sector," he hinted at a transitional period at the end of the conflict. However, these indications do not seem to foreshadow a major rift between the allies, according to CNN.

Even as the U.S. administration grapples with increasing internal anger, protests erupt across the country, and international allies express growing condemnation, there is no significant sign of distancing itself publicly from Netanyahu or expressing any condemnation of the Israeli attack on Gaza.

It is worth noting that on the 34th day of the war that erupted on October 7 when Hamas fighters infiltrated Israeli military bases and settlements in the Gaza Strip, the number of Palestinian casualties rose to 10,569, including 4,324 children and 2,823 women. On the Israeli side, the death toll reached 1,400, with most casualties occurring on the first day of the surprise attack, while 34 soldiers were killed according to the Israeli army.
