Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Condemns ‘Shameful’ Biden Admin

As we all know, the deadliest Palestinian militant attack in history, which Hamas led in Israel, took place on October 7. It took multiple lives, with 1200 people from Israel and 17,000 Palestinians.

The U.N. Security Council on Friday offered a resolution for the Israel-Hamas war, which called for a ceasefire in Gaza and to immediately release all the hostages that Hamas captured (speculated roughly to be 240).

Fifteen countries on the U.N. Security Council were given a choice to vote on this resolution, and 13 countries favored the decision. In contrast, the United States voted against the resolution, and the United Kingdom abstained.

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a Democrat from New York, has condemned this move of voting against the resolution while attacking the Biden Administration.

On Sunday, she reacted to the news on the X platform (Formerly known as Twitter) while writing,

“Shameful. The Biden Admin can no longer reconcile their professed concern for Palestinians and human rights while also single-handedly vetoing the U.N.’s call for a ceasefire and sidestepping the entire U.S. Congress to unconditionally back the indiscriminate bombing of Gaza.”

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wasn’t the only one to condemn this move. Her opinion was shared by Senator Bernie Sanders, who was also seen denouncing the U.S. decision to vote against the resolution.

Sanders wrote on X: “At a time when Palestinians in Gaza are facing horrific conditions, the U.S. should not be vetoing a U.N. resolution calling for a humanitarian ceasefire and the release of all hostages,”

“The children in Gaza need food, water, and medical supplies. We must do everything possible to make that happen NOW.”

After seeing the cruelty of war, many around the world have constantly been protesting for a ceasefire in Gaza, and Cortez is one among a handful of progressive Congressmen who have been outspoken in expressing her support for a ceasefire while also criticizing President Joe Biden’s administration’s handling of the Israeli-Palestinian issue.

Despite acknowledging that Israel has not gone far enough in protecting civilians in Gaza, the Biden administration has declined to call for a ceasefire because they believe that doing so will allow Hamas to launch another attack against Israel.

According to a post on the U.N. website on Friday, Robert A. Wood, who represented the United States during Friday’s veto, described the resolution as “not only unrealistic but dangerous; it will simply leave Hamas in place, able to regroup and repeat what it did on October 7.”

U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres alerted the Security Council earlier this week to the humanitarian crisis in Gaza while stating, “There is a high risk of the total collapse of the humanitarian support system in Gaza, which would have devastating consequences,”

Meanwhile, Antony Blinken, Secretary of State, stated on Thursday, “It is imperative—it remains imperative—that Israel put a premium on civilian protection,”

He added, “And there does remain a gap between exactly what I said when I was there, the intent to protect civilians, and the actual results that we’re seeing on the ground.”
