A senior official from the U.S. Department of Education has resigned in protest of President Joe Biden’s policy towards Gaza and Israel.

Tareq Habash wrote in a letter that he cannot remain silent in the face of the U.S. government’s “ignoring the crimes against innocent Palestinians.”

Habbash, who worked as a special assistant in the Office of Planning at the Department of Education, stated in the letter to the U.S. Secretary of Education, “I cannot remain silent about this department turning a blind eye to the crimes being committed against innocent Palestinian lives, something that prominent human rights experts have called a campaign of genocide by the Israeli government.”

Tareq Habash is a Palestinian-American appointed to his position during the early days of the Biden administration.

Additionally, 17 staff members from Joe Biden’s campaign headquarters have issued warnings regarding the President’s policy towards Gaza and Israel. They have expressed concerns that this could lead to a loss of support among Biden’s voters.

In October, Joshua Pollock, a senior official at the U.S. Department of State, also resigned in protest of what he described as the “blind support” of the Biden administration for the Israeli government.

In November, thousands of U.S. State Department employees signed a joint letter urging President Biden to call for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza.

However, President Biden has maintained his support for the ongoing conflict in Gaza, even as the region faces a severe humanitarian crisis.
