White House National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan announces that the U.S. does not believe that Tel Aviv is committing genocide in Gaza. 

Washington, May 13 (RHC)-- The White House rejects claims of genocide in Gaza despite a death toll of over 35,000 Palestinians -- mostly women and children -- and hides behind the claim that the definition of genocide requires intent... which Tel Aviv astonishingly insists is not happening.   

White House National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan proclaimed, on Monday, that the United States does not believe that Tel Aviv is committing genocide in the Gaza Strip.  Moreover, Sullivan lifted all responsibility off of Israel by once again arguing that, despite the continued bombardment of the Gaza Strip by Israeli war jets and the multiple attempted incursions into different areas across the Strip, he still insisted that Hamas is the side that must release Israeli captives for a ceasefire to occur. 

The world should be calling on Hamas to return to the negotiating table and accept a deal, Sullivan said, although it was Israel that sabotaged the latest deal that Hamas agreed to.

To claim neutrality, Sullivan was compelled to note that "we [the U.S.] believe Israel can and must do more to ensure the protection and wellbeing of innocent civilians."  However, he then insisted: "We do not believe what is happening in Gaza is a genocide.  We have been firmly on record rejecting that proposition," although 35,091 Palestinians were killed and 78,827 others were injured since last October 7th.

According to Sullivan, the U.S. was "using the internationally accepted term for genocide, which includes a focus on intent" to reach this conclusion, which, according to him, Israel does not have.

Moreover, the White House National Security Advisor noted that U.S. President Joe Biden believed any Rafah operation "has got to be connected to a strategic endgame that also answered the question, 'What comes next?'"

Sullivan explained that this would prevent Israel from "getting mired in a counterinsurgency campaign that never ends, and ultimately saps Israel's strength and vitality."

Regarding the humanitarian aid convoys being attacked by Israeli settlers, Sullivant said: "It is a total outrage that there are people who are attacking and looting these conveys," adding: "It is completely and utterly unacceptable behavior."

Despite Sullivan denying Israel's perpetuation of war crimes in the Gaza Strip, the resignation of multiple U.S. officials due to top-level officials' unconditional support to the Israeli regime draws a starker picture.
