Another State Department Official Resigns Over Biden’s Support for Israel

Stacy Gilbert said she disagreed with a State Department report that claimed Israel wasn't impeding aid deliveries into Gaza

Another State Department official has resigned over President Biden’s support for Israel’s slaughter of Palestinians in Gaza, The Washington Post reported on Wednesday.

Stacy Gilbert, a career official who worked in the State Department’s Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration, said in a resignation email to her colleagues that she disagreed with a State Department report that claimed Israel has not been blocking aid deliveries into Gaza.

The State Department report also said that Israel was likely violating US and international law with US-provided weapons but claimed there was not sufficient evidence to prove it. The conclusion of the report, which was issued under a new national security memorandum, allows the US to continue shipping weapons to Israel.

Gilbert resigned on Tuesday, and Josh Paul, who resigned from the State Department back in October, pointed to the fact that it was the same day the Biden administration made clear Israel’s bombing of displaced Palestinians at a tent camp in Rafah wouldn’t impact US support.

“On the day when the White House announced that the latest atrocity in Rafah did not cross its red line, this resignation demonstrates that the Biden administration will do anything to avoid the truth,” Paul wrote on Linkedin.

So far, four State Department officials have resigned over the genocidal war in Gaza, and three officials from other departments, including one from the Interior Department, the Education Department, and a US Army major who worked for the Pentagon’s Defense Intelligence Agency.
