Urgent: Concerns Regarding U.S. Policy on Israel-Palestine Conflict

To: Pres. Biden

From: A constituent in Des Moines, IA

May 6

I am writing to you as a concerned citizen and a supporter who has been increasingly troubled by your administration’s handling of the ongoing conflict between Israel and Palestine. Your administration’s efforts to negotiate a cease-fire between Israel and Hamas were commendable. However, the recent statements from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu have raised serious doubts about the sincerity of these negotiations. Netanyahu’s declaration that Israel will launch an invasion of the southern Gaza city of Rafah regardless of truce talks with Hamas is deeply concerning. His exact words were, “We will enter Rafah and we will eliminate the Hamas battalions there – with or without a deal, in order to achieve the total victory.” These words suggest a disregard for the cease-fire agreement that your administration worked so hard to broker. They also imply a willingness to continue military actions that could result in the loss of innocent Palestinian lives. This is not only a humanitarian concern but also a potential violation of international law. As a supporter of your administration, I find it increasingly difficult to justify these actions to other voters. Many of us are growing disillusioned and apathetic towards your presidency due to these developments. We had hoped for a more balanced and humane approach to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. I urge you to reconsider your administration’s stance on this issue. The upcoming election is not just about your presidency but also about the future of our democracy. Your actions carry tremendous weight and responsibility. A misstep could not only cost you the election but also potentially undermine our democratic values. I implore you to take these concerns seriously. The world is watching, and so are we, the voters.
