Washington: US President Joe Biden on Monday denied that Israel’s attack on Gaza was genocide. “What’s happening is not genocide, we reject that” he said while addressing a Jewish American Heritage Month event at the White house.
Biden condemned a decision by the prosecutor for the International Criminal Court, to seek arrest warrants for three Hamas leaders on the same day in order to obtain warrants for top Israeli officials, including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, for crimes against humanity.
While speaking to the Jewish activists Biden stated that Americans “stand with Israel”.
He also added, “Let me be clear, we reject the I.C.C’s application for arrest warrants against Israeli leaders. Whatever these warrants may imply, there is no equivalence between Israel and Hamas,” reported The New York Times.
John Kirby, National security spokesman for the white house, rejected the implication from the I.C.C move, hours prior to the President’s comments. “I.D.F. soldiers are not waking up in the morning, putting their boots on the ground, with direct orders to go kill innocent civilians in Gaza,” Kirby said.
American officials have been expressing their concerns for months that Bidens administration shuts down accusations that Israel’s political leaders and their military are not conducting “war” but a genocide on Palestinians in Gaza.
On the other hand, Biden and his administration have repeatedly said that they believe the deaths in Gaza are a tragedy and the Israeli military needs to be more careful and precise in the way they carry out their operations to avoid civilian deaths as they prosecute the war against Hamas.
