(WASHINGTON, DC) – The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today condemned the Biden administration for giving the Israeli government the “green light” to resume bombing Gaza and called on the United States to join other governments in demanding the resumption of the ceasefire and negotiations to secure a just, lasting peace. Israel’s renewed bombing campaign has already killed more than 100 Palestinian civilians

In a statement, CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad said:

“The Biden administration must join other governments and the United Nations in demanding the resumption of the ceasefire and negotiations before the extremist Israeli government kills another 14,000 thousand civilians and ethnically cleanses the southern half of Gaza. 

“Just hours after Secretary Blinken claimed that Israel had made concrete plans to minimize civilian casualties, Benjamin Netanyahu once again made a mockery of the Biden administration by bombing civilian sites, killing more than 100 Palestinians in less than a day.  

“The Biden administration has taken belated but positive steps in the right direction over the past few weeks, but it now risks destroying that progress by once again giving Benjamin Netanyahu’s racist, far-right government political cover to bomb civilians in Gaza. These war crimes were completely predictable, and the Biden Administration must stop enabling them.”
