Biden Not Changing Israel Policy After Meticulous Slaughter of Aid Workers

Unconditional US military support for the genocidal war will continue

President Biden has no plans to change his policy of unconditional support for Israel even after the Israeli military systematically killed seven aid workers, including an American citizen, POLITICO reported on Wednesday.

Biden released a statement claiming he was “outraged” over the attack and called for an investigation, but that’s as far as he will go. “That’s all we have planned,” a senior Biden administration official told POLITICO.

The White House has also backed Israel’s claim that the strikes on the aid workers were an accident despite clear evidence that it was intentional.

The aid workers for the World Central Kitchen were traveling along a route that was pre-approved by the Israeli military. They were in three separate cars with the WCK logo clearly marked, and an Israeli drone fired at least three missiles at each one until they were all killed.

White House National Security Council spokesman was asked on Wednesday if there would be any change to US policy toward Israel and said, “We are still supporting their right to defend themselves, and we’re going to continue to do that. We’re also going to see what the result of the investigation is.”

The POLITICO report said there were some officials within the administration unhappy with the full-throated support for Israel. “It’s just rinse and repeat with the Israelis. The American political system can’t or won’t draw a real line with them and that is regrettable,” another US official said.

President Biden and his top aides claim they’re concerned with the massive civilian casualty rate in Gaza and the starvation caused by the Israeli siege, but they continue to approve weapons shipments to Israel. Last week, Biden approved new munition shipments to Israel, including 2,000-pound bombs, and an F-35 deal worth $2.5 billion. He is expected to approve another major arms deal that includes 50 F-15 fighter jets and will be worth $18 billion.
