Biden Continues to Provide Israel Billions for War Crimes

Biden’s administration is violating US law by continuing to send military aid to Israel despite its war crimes in Gaza.

Despite Friday’s near-unanimous ruling by the International Court of Justice for Israel to halt its devastating attacks on the Gazan city of Rafah and Biden’s previous pledge to halt offensive military aid if they did so, U.S. arms continue to flow.

As Israeli forces continue to carry out war crimes in Gaza, the United States has seen growing popular opposition to military aid to Israel’s far right government. Since the Nixon administration, the United States has been sending over $2 billion in taxpayer-funded military aid to Israel every year. Starting in 2016, it was raised to $3.8 billion annually, supplemented by an additional $14.1 billion provided this year.

Among the weapons approved by President Joe Biden in late March to ship to Israel were 1,800 MK-84 bombs, weighing roughly 2,000 pounds (900 kilograms), which are powerful enough to level an entire apartment block and leave a crater 35-feet (11 meters) deep. Israel has killed many hundreds of Palestinian civilians in recent months using this U.S.-supplied weapon.
