Jewish Political Appointee Resigns From Her Post Over Biden Administration’s Stance On Israel’s War In Gaza

Lily Greenberg Call, who was serving as an assistant to the chief of staff in the Interior Department, has called it quits over the Biden administration’s unequivocal support for Israel’s assault in enclaved Gaza. Greenberg is the first Jewish political appointee to resign from her position in the government office over the Israel-Hamas war.

On Wednesday, Lilly Greenberg Call publicly announced her resignation, joining the likeness of former U.S.U.S. Army officer and senior state department officials who protested against Biden’s stance on the ongoing Israel-Hamas conflict in the same way.

In her letter addressed to the Interior Secretary, she wrote, “I joined the Biden administration because I believe in fighting for a better America, for a future where Americans can thrive: one with economic prosperity, a healthy planet, and equal rights for all people. I can no longer in good conscience continue to represent this administration amid President Biden's disastrous, continued support for Israel's genocide in Gaza.”

Call even chose a date to announce the resignation that implored everyone to commemorate the tragic “Nakba” or catastrophe brought upon the people of Palestine 76 years ago.  In her letter, she compared “Nakba,” or the first ever involuntary migration of Palestinians, to “Shoah,” or the infamous holocaust.

She told A.P News, “Nakba and Shoah, the Hebrew word for Holocaust, mean the same thing: catastrophe," Call wrote in her letter. "I reject the premise that one people's salvation must come at another's destruction. I am committed to creating a world where this does not happen—and this cannot be done from within the Biden administration."

Since Oct 7, at least 35,000 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli air strikes, and the number of displaced is in the millions. Many senior government officials have resigned as U.S.U.S. President Biden chose to offer unconditional support to Israel as the latter continued with its horrendous war crimes, including intentionally bombing hospitals, targeting journalists, and so on.
