Gaza protesters interrupt 'genocide Joe' as rage rises over US Israel support

2 چند هفته قبل 16

Pro-Palestinian protesters have disrupted president Joe Biden's campaign speech in North Carolina by chanting slogans and protesting against his support for the crimes of the Zionist regime.

While speaking in Raleigh about the Affordable Care Act, Biden was met with protesters as they began shouting him down roughly five minutes into his speech.

Biden was speaking at a healthcare-focused campaign event where he began pledging his commitment to the Obama-era law that provides health care for Americans, which led to the eruption of demonstrations.

“What about health care in Gaza?” protesters shouted.

“Hospitals are being bombed,” another demonstrator shouted.

Another accused Biden of being "complicit in genocide" while others shouted now-familiar refrains demanding a cease-fire in the coastal enclave.

The protests come amidst an escalating diplomatic dispute between Washington and Tel Aviv following the US's decision to abstain from a UN security council resolution vote on Monday, demanding an immediate cease-fire for the month of Ramadan.

Biden has increasingly faced pressure from many of his colleagues to respond more forcefully to the humanitarian needs in Gaza and political pressure on the Israeli government to allow more aid to enter the Gaza Strip has increased, but has still not requested to stop the sale of American weapons to this regime.

In January, Biden's speech on abortion was disrupted nearly 12 times by pro-Palestinian protesters, and in the wake of the incident, his team tried to prevent this by downsizing events and keeping the exact locations of his speeches hidden.

The International Court of Justice has accused Israel of committing genocide and has recently issued an interim ruling.

This ruling mandates Tel Aviv to cease all genocidal acts and ensure the provision of humanitarian aid to the civilians residing in Gaza.

Since the October 7 operation "Al-Aqsa Storm" by Hamas fighters against the Zionist regime and the subsequent intensification of the blockade along with operations from the air, sea and land by this regime against Gaza, Joe Biden has repeatedly and successively faced the protesters because of his support of the apartheid regime.

According to the UN, the ongoing Israeli genocide has resulted in the internal displacement of 85% of Gaza's population, who are now facing severe shortages of food, clean water, and medicine. Additionally, the UN reports that 60% of the enclave's infrastructure has been either damaged or completely destroyed.

Over 32,400 Palestinians have lost their lives in the Palestinian territory, with an additional 74,800 individuals sustaining injuries amidst widespread devastation and scarcity of essential resources.
