American politicians are too preoccupied with "whoring" for special interest groups to condemn Israel's campaign of genocide against innocent Palestinians in Gaza. The student protest encampments on college campuses are not about Israel's right to exist or the country's right to defend itself against terrorist attacks. They all are focused on stopping the genocide in Gaza. Politicians from Joe Biden on down have ignored Israel's campaign of genocide in exchange for campaign contributions from pro-Israeli political action groups.
