Josh Paul, a State Department official in the office that oversees arms transfers, resigned in protest against the Biden administration’s decision to send weapons to Israel in the conflict that erupted on October 7, after the deadly Hamas attack. The official justified his decision in complete contradiction to the positions of the US President, who went to Tel Aviv on Wednesday to meet with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and renew Washington’s full support, saying that “blind support” leads to political decisions that are “short-sighted, destructive, unfair, and contradict the same values ​​that we publicly support.”

The leader explained his reasons and position in his resignation letter submitted to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs: “The response provided by Israel, along with American support for this response and the current status of the occupation, will only lead to further escalation.” The man, who served as Director of Public and Parliamentary Affairs in the State Department’s Bureau of Political-Military Affairs for more than 11 years, explained. And it was precisely his long stay in the offices of the State Department that gave him the conviction that American military policies in the most heated contexts were wrong. There are no specific references, such as unconditional military support for Ukraine, or going back in time, to the decision to invade Afghanistan and Iraq in the early 2000s. But the verdict is clear and unfiltered: “I fear we will repeat the same mistakes we have made in recent decades and I refuse to be part of it any longer.”
