Staffers in Joe Biden’s campaign are reportedly resigning due to their dissatisfaction with Biden’s support for Israel against Hamas.

A letter signed by 17 unnamed staffers criticizes Biden’s stance and urges him to pursue a ceasefire and change his Middle East policies.

The letter’s demands include ending military aid to Israel, investigating human rights violations, and addressing the root causes of the conflict. (Trending: U.S. State Passes Personal Pronoun Ban)

“Biden for President staff have seen volunteers quit in droves, and people who have voted blue for decades feel uncertain about doing so for the first time ever, because of this conflict,” wrote the staffers.

“We write to you as the current staff of your re-election campaign. As we work to mobilize voters to cast their ballots for you in 2024, we must take a moment to acknowledge our tremendous grief, and the grief shared by countless other Americans, toward the violence occurring in Gaza,” they continued.

“We joined this campaign because the values that you — and we — share are ones worth fighting for. Justice, empathy, and our belief in the dignity of human life is the backbone of not only the Democratic Party, but of the country. However, your administration’s response to Israel’s indiscriminate bombing in Gaza has been fundamentally antithetical to those values — and we believe it could cost you the 2024 election,” reads the letter.

“As your staff, we believe it is both a moral and electoral imperative for you to publicly call for a cessation of violence,” declared the staffers.

“Complicity in the death of over 20,000 Palestinians, 8,200 of whom are children, simply cannot be justified,” they continued.

The group ordered Biden to “Take concrete steps to end the conditions of apartheid, occupation, and ethnic cleansing that are the root causes of this conflict.”

“You have said numerous times that silence in the face of human rights violations is complicity. We agree, which is why we are speaking out now,” the letter continued.

“Every minute that passes without a ceasefire is another life that is lost — a life that could have been saved with political action from you. As your staff, we believe it is both a moral and electoral imperative for you to publicly call for a cessation of violence,” insisted the staffers.

Some administration members have openly quit over the Israel policy.

This internal turmoil could potentially impact Biden’s re-election campaign, especially as polls show a decline in his approval ratings.
