In my latest piece for The New Arab, I look at the pitiful response of Joe Biden and his administration to the Israeli onslaught against Gaza. I argue that Biden neglected this issue, allowing it to fester when he could have stopped all of this before it really started. He then compounded this incompetence with callous indifference to the suffering of Palestinian people, valuing only the lives of Israelis.

The silver lining is the unprecedented pressure Biden has gotten from some Democrats. It’s not enough, of course, but it’s so much more than we’ve ever seen. That is a sign that the activism and advocacy many of us have engaged in for so long is starting to work.
