His resignation reflects growing tension within the administration over its approach to the conflict and its impact on the US.

“It should go without saying that all violence against innocent people is horrific. I mourn each and every loss, Israeli and Palestinian,” Habash said.

“But I cannot represent an administration that does not value all human life equally.”

“I cannot stay silent as this administration turns a blind eye to the atrocities committed against innocent Palestinian lives.”

“The refusal by the president to call for an an immediate and permanent ceasefire is untenable with the belief by millions of Americans across this country,” he later said.

“He is the one who has the power with a phone call to end this violence, to make demands of the Israeli government, to end the indiscriminate violence against Palestinians,” he added.

“The Department of Education must play an active role in supporting institutions as they respond to the needs of students, faculty, and staff,” Habash wrote.

“This includes protecting all students who choose to exercise their first amendment right to engage in nonviolent actions, including expressing solidarity with Palestinians in Gaza who have suffered tremendously in recent weeks and for years before the current ongoing violence.”
