The Biden Regime is Looking for Funds to Ethnically Cleanse Gaza
On October 20, 2023, the Biden regime published a $105 billion supplemental funding request for the conflicts in Israel and Ukraine, which includes funds allocated to helping Israel realize its goal of annexing Gaza and forcibly kick out its 2.3 million Palestinian residents. These Palestinians would then be sent to Egypt’s Sinai peninsula.’
President Joe Biden made this announcement at a televised speech from the Oval Office. He hoped that Congress would move quickly to pass said legislation.
Biden’s national security adviser, Jake Sullivan, said to reporters at the time that Russia’s military operations inUkraine and Hamas’ attack on Israel represent a “global inflection point.”
This request would allocate $5.7 billion towards the Agency for International Development’s International Disaster Assistance account and $3.5 billion to the Migration and Refugee Assistance (MRA) account within the Department of State.
This move is being made in anticipation of a large number of Palestinians in Gaza being compelled to flee their homes in Gaza and head to Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula as a response to Israel’s continuous siege and bombing of Gaza that has resulted in the killings of over 8,000 Palestinians, the bulk being women and children.
The Biden regime proclaimed that “These resources would support displaced and conflict affected civilians, including Palestinian refugees in Gaza and the West Bank, and to address potential needs of Gazans fleeing to neighboring countries.”
“This would include food and nonfood items, healthcare, emergency shelter support, water and sanitation assistance, and emergency protection. This would also include potential critical humanitarian infrastructure costs needed for the refugee population to provide access to basic, life-sustaining support,” the statement continued.
The Biden regime argued that the aid is necessary due to how, “This crisis could well result in displacement across border and higher regional humanitarian needs, and funding may be used to meet evolving programming requirements outside of Gaza.”
Israel has routinely attacked Gaza for nearly two decades, which includes military actions being launched against in 2006, 2008, 2012, 2014, 2021, 2022, and 2023.
With Israel going more hard-right in recent decades, there will be a stronger push by Israeli political actors to ethnically cleanse Palestinians. That’s what’s in store for the Palestinians if the political dynamics don’t change in Israel.
If the US had a modicum of sanity and decency, it would do everything possible to stop aid to Israel and recalibrate its relations with Israel to avoid complicity with a brutal ethnic cleansing campaign.
