We refuse to carry water for any leader who commits, aids, or abets the mass slaughter of civilians.




President Joe Biden said he was “outraged and heartbroken” by the Israeli airstrike that killed seven aid workers with the World Central Kitchen on April 1.

He praised the workers as “brave and selfless” and pledged to support Chef José Andrés and World Central Kitchen’s “relentless and heroic efforts.”

Then he went back to sending Israel billions of dollars worth of military aid so the slaughter can continue.

It’s disgraceful.

But what makes it even worse is that so many major U.S. news outlets have credulously passed along Biden’s alleged “concern” while glossing over — or ignoring entirely — the fact that Israel simply could not keep up its killing if the U.S. stopped sending additional weapons.

Here at The Intercept, we don’t give a damn what politicians say — we look at what they do. And we refuse to carry water for any leader who commits, aids, or abets such atrocities.

But we want to be honest with you: This is an incredibly difficult time for independent journalism. We’ve seen wave after wave of cutbacks and staffing reductions, and some important, groundbreaking digital news outlets have been forced to shut down entirely. Reader donations are absolutely vital to our ability to continue our work.

So this week, we launched our April membership campaign, aiming to sign up 3,000 new monthly donors by April 30. Will you donate $5 a month to help support the fiercely independent, hard-hitting investigative journalism of The Intercept?

Biden’s claims to support humanitarian aid to Gaza fly in the face of his actions.

Not only has the U.S. been Israel’s primary weapons supplier throughout its war on Gaza, the U.S. also recently cut off funding for UNRWA, the agency in charge of providing aid to Palestinian refugees.

This came even as USAID Administrator Samantha Power acknowledged that famine is likely underway right now in Gaza.

Meanwhile, World Central Kitchen had no choice but to pause operations following what it describes as a targeted killing of its workers. And Israel continues to block food delivery trucks from getting into Gaza, wielding starvation as a weapon of war in clear violation of international law.

Public support for Israel’s brutal war in Gaza is slipping in the U.S., and hard-hitting, independent journalism is essential to ensure the public continues to have access to the truth about U.S. complicity and horrifying facts on the ground.

That’s why we’re asking you today: Please donate $5 a month to support The Intercept and help make our April membership campaign a success.
