Pressure for the president to support a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip mounted Tuesday as hundreds of employees in his administration reportedly signed on to a letter in protest.
President Joe Biden’s favor for strategic “pauses” over a full ceasefire has continued to lose him favor with the radicals within his ranks marking their vociferous opposition to Israel in increasing fashion. Tuesday, on the heels of internal State Department memos dissenting to the administration “spreading misinformation” on the Israel-Hamas war, more than 400 appointees and staffers from 40 government agencies submitted a letter to the commander-in-chief demanding a ceasefire.
“We call on President Biden to urgently demand a cease-fire,” read the anonymously signed letter reviewed and reported by The New York Times, “and to call for de-escalation of the current conflict by securing the immediate release of the Israeli hostages and arbitrarily detained Palestinians; the restoration of water, fuel, electricity and other basic services; and the passage of adequate humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip.”
According to the signatories, representing the White House, National Security Council, Justice Department, State Department and other agencies, it was necessary to remain anonymous out of “concern for our personal safety and risk of potentially losing our jobs.”
Their letter continued, “The overwhelming majority of Americans support a cease-fire,” providing a link to a poll from Data For Progress which packaged an array of issues related to a ceasefire while asking how respondents felt about the statement, “The U.S. should call for a ceasefire and a de-escalation of violence in Gaza. The U.S. should leverage its close diplomatic relationship with Israel to prevent further violence and civilian deaths.”
Hamas was not mentioned in the poll.
The vocal position aligning with anti-Israel sentiments came only days after a heavily organized protest reportedly marched in the vicinity of Biden’s Delaware home Saturday chanting, “President Biden, you can’t hide! We charge you with genocide!”
Others could be heard shouting “No ceasefire, no vote” as well as, “In November, we remember” while waving Palestinian flags and displaying signs that read “Free Gaza” and, despite the Oct. 7 terror attack targeting Jews, claimed “It’s not about religion.”

“Furthermore, Americans do not want the U.S. military to be drawn into another costly and senseless war in the Middle East,” the letter from the anonymous officials contended.
The fact that the hundreds of employees hid behind anonymity sparked concern, especially after Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley (R) had confronted Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas over antisemitic rhetoric posted by an asylum officer under his watch.
Nejwa Ali had been suspended after it was discovered that she was posting her apparent support for the attacks that slaughtered more than 1,400 men, women and children, begging the senator to ask, “Is this — is this typical of people who work at DHS?”
“This is an asylum and immigration officer who is posting these frankly, pro-genocidal slogans and images on the day that Israelis are being slaughtered in their beds,” Hawley added. “What have you done about his?”
Bristled, an indignant Mayorkas replied, “One of the things I’d like to say to you, number one, your question, to suggest that is emblematic of the men and women of the Department of Homeland Security is despicable.”
Yet, the fact that roughly two weeks later hundreds of employees are opting to remain anonymous in voicing their alignment against Israel begs the question as to what their own social media activity might uncover.
How do we have over 400 terrorist sympathizers in the highest levels of government?
