The meaning of Josh Paul’s resignation

Josh Paul, high ranking official in Biden’s Administration noisily resigned Wednesday, the day his master has paid a lightening visit to the US protected darlin in the Middle East. Josh Paul, it’s not just anyone, till his resignation, he was showing by the title of the job director of congressional and public affairs within the US State Department’s Bureau of Political-Military Affairs, a position in which he was involved in arms transfers between the United States and allied countries like Israel. The timing of his resignation is highly telling as, undoubtedly, he witnessed both Hamas attack on innocent workers and residents of Kibbutz and mass killing of Gazans by US made bombs in particular the destruction of Gaza hospital and the massacre of almost 500 victims mostly, wounded, children and old people. The main reasons invoked by Paul is his remorse and  his sense of guilt since he took the job 11 years ago, by penning ““I am leaving today because I believe that in our current course with regards to the continued – indeed, expanded and expedited – provision of lethal arms to Israel – I have reached the end of that bargain” Through these words, Paul is breaking a taboo deep seated inside US political Establishment knowing the powerful of the Jewish lobby and its huge influence on the decision makers in US foreign policy. Before Paul’s denunciation of unconditional support of Israel and the lethal arms provided by Biden’s administration, it is worth nothing the courageous posture taken by former US president Jimmy Carter who published in 2006 a book with this telling title “Palestine not apartheid” describing the Israeli policy in occupied territories based on the theft and usurpation of Palestinian lands, the colonization and the humiliating condition imposed on the Palestinians. Jimmy Carter’s foundation has kindly sent to me this book for review and in the light of the current conflict between Hamas and Israel, it is highly recommended to read it in order to better understand the tragedy of the Palestinian people, admirably depicted without compromise by a former president of the bloodiest state never seen in all the history of humanity.
