With the climate in Israel-Palestine reviving the fears of May 2021, the U.S. should be preventing further massacres, not allowing Israel to take revenge.



Dark days are ahead. The unprecedented events of Oct. 7 have forever changed all of our lives — Palestinians and Israelis alike.

It is very hard, as I write these lines, to describe the full scope of emotions we've been trying to grapple with here. We still don’t fully understand the magnitude of this new war and its future repercussions. One thing is clear though: this is going to be a long and painful one, for both sides. And it is therefore the world’s responsibility to intervene and stop the madness from escalating. NOW.

That is precisely why Joe Biden's predictable comments following the Hamas assault -- promising "all appropriate means of support" to Israel and standing by its "right to defend itself and its people, full stop" -- are especially alarming, terrifying, and reckless. The President of the United States -- an active participant in the oppression of the Palestinian people in Gaza -- essentially gave Israel carte blanche by saying Washington will back Benjamin Netanyahu’s government in every action it decides to take.
