Top US official Josh Paul resigns in protest against Israel support

A top, long-time U.S. State Department official resigned this week in protest of the Biden administration’s policy on the Israel-Gaza war and its “impulsive reaction built on confirmation bias, political convenience, intellectual bankruptcy and bureaucratic inertia.”

According to US media reports, Josh Paul, who worked for the State Department office that approves arms transfers, posted a resignation letter on LinkedIn decrying both the Hamas attack as well as potential escalation by Hezbollah or Iran.

“But 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,” he wrote.

“Blind support for one side is destructive in the long term to the interests of the people on both sides,” he continued, adding “I fear we are repeating the same mistakes we have made these past decades and I decline to be a part of it for longer.”
