The official stance of the Biden administration is to support the nation of Israel. As Israel wages its war against Hamas, the United States has pledged military aid, among other forms of help.
That has upset many Democrats, who are siding with pro-Palestinian, anti-Israel groups.
Biden has offered aid to citizens of Gaza. But it looks like someone close to Vice President Harris intends to do much more.
From New York Post:
The stepdaughter of Vice President Kamala Harris is publicly raising money for Gaza…
Ella Emhoff, 24 — whose father, first gentleman Doug Emhoff, is Jewish — affixed a fundraising drive “supporting urgent relief for Gaza’s children” on her personal Instagram account…
The fundraiser, which has netted more than $7.8 million so far, is being operated by the Palestinian Children’s Relief Fund, a nonprofit based in Kent, Ohio, which raked in more than $21 million in 2021, according to ProPublica.
Kamala Harris’s stepdaughter is supporting a fundraiser to help Gaza residents. The drive has brought in a reported $8 million. It is being run by a group called “Palestinian Children’s Relief Fund.”
Critics have already slammed Harris’s family over the news. Rep. Van Drew, member of the House Homeland Security Committee, said “it was almost certain” that the money will be used by Hamas.
It has been documented how Hamas takes much of the money meant for Gaza citizens. The money is never used to provide humanitarian aid. Instead, Hamas uses it to construct missiles and other weapons used on Israel.
Others have questioned Emhoff’s alliances. Despite her father being Jewish, she has said she does not consider herself Jewish. Even her representative once said, “Ella is not Jewish.” It’s unclear why the vice president’s daughter appears to be hostile toward Israel.
But many young liberals are siding with Palestine, accusing Israel of being an “apartheid state.” Many college students have signed letters condemning Israel and its response to the October 7 attacks. Some have even claimed Israel has lied about the attacks, faking footage.
President Biden has vowed $100 million in “humanitarian assistance” for residents of Gaza. But many have claimed this money will end up helping Hamas, not civilians.
- Kamala Harris’s stepdaughter is supporting a fundraiser for Gaza citizens.
- The drive has already raised around $8 million.
- The fundraiser is reportedly for Gaza children, but Hamas often takes humanitarian aid for itself.
