Biden Staffer Suddenly Resigns: “I Can No Longer in Good Conscience Continue to Represent This Administration”

An Interior Department staffer for the Biden regime has just abruptly resigned.

Lily Greenberg Call, a Jewish special assistant to the Department of Interior chief of staff, slammed Biden’s stance on the Israel-Gaza war in her resignation letter.

“I can no longer in good conscience continue to represent this administration,” she wrote, claiming that, “He is making Jews the face of the American war machine. And that is so deeply wrong.”

Take a look:

AP reported:

An Interior Department staffer on Wednesday became the first Jewish political appointee to publicly resign in protest of U.S. support for Israel’s war in Gaza.

Lily Greenberg Call, a special assistant to the chief of staff in the Interior Department, accused President Joe Biden of using Jews to justify U.S. policy in the conflict.

Call had worked for the presidential campaigns of both Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, and was a longtime activist and advocate for Israel in Washington and elsewhere before joining the government.

She is at least the fifth mid- or senior-level administration staffer to make public their resignation in protest of the Biden administration’s military and diplomatic support of the now seven-month Israeli war against Hamas. She is the second political appointee to do so, after an Education Department official of Palestinian heritage resigned in January.

Her resignation letter described her excitement at joining an administration that she believed shared much of her vision for the country. “However, I can no longer in good conscience continue to represent this administration,” she wrote.

The Washington Post added:

A Jewish American Biden political appointee resigned from her post at the Interior Department on Wednesday, saying she could no longer work for the administration because of President Biden’s continued support of Israel’s war in Gaza.

Lily Greenberg Call, special assistant to the chief of staff in the Interior Department, cited her Jewish upbringing and ties to Israel in her resignation letter. She wrote that her family escaped antisemitic persecution in Europe and came to the United States, noting that they changed their names at Ellis Island and that her grandparents could not go to college.

“I can no longer in good conscience continue to represent this administration amidst President Biden’s disastrous, continued support for Israel’s genocide in Gaza,” Greenberg Call wrote. Israel strongly denies that its actions in Gaza amount to genocide.

Reflecting on her position as an appointee in a presidential administration, she added: “This is the story of many people in my community: a story of survival, upward mobility, and fulfillment of the American Dream. And yet, I have asked myself many times over the last eight months: what is the point of having power if you will not use it to stop crimes against humanity?”

Greenberg Call is the first known Jewish appointee to publicly resign over Biden’s support of Israel. Earlier this week, a U.S. Army officer working at the Defense Intelligence Agency resigned from the military, writing in an open letter that he felt “incredible shame and guilt” knowing that his work contributed to Palestinian suffering and death. A political appointee from the Education Department resigned in January, and a career State Department employee who worked on arms transfers to foreign powers resigned in October.
