The U.S. State Department is reportedly facing considerable internal dissent over the Biden administration's decision to strongly back Israel amid an ongoing conflict between that country and the Hamas terrorist group based in Gaza.
President Joe Biden visited Israel this week and urged Americans on Thursday to support an aid package to that nation and Ukraine.
Israel has maintained a steady barrage of the Gaza Strip since an Oct. 7 Hamas raid on its territory and the Pentagon has already moved to direct artillery munitions to Israeli forces to help them prepare for a possible ground assault.
Behind the scenes, however, senior officials in the main executive agency that handles foreign policy face internal pushback.
"There's basically a mutiny brewing within State at all levels," one official told the Huffington Post. Others confirmed the preparation of a "dissent cable," which is an internal document criticizing Department policy.
Earlier this week, internal frustrations became public when Josh Paul, the former Director of Congressional & Public Affairs for the department's Bureau of Political-Military Affairs, publicly posted his resignation, citing his inability to shift the administration from its course on the issue.
"I believe to the core of my soul that the response Israel is taking, and with it the American support both for that response, and for the status quo of the occupation, will only lead to more and deeper suffering for both the Israeli and the Palestinian people – and is not in the long term American interest," Paul said.
