Vice-president Kamala Harris should resign

Because of the Netanyahu-Biden genocide against the innocent people of Gaza, Vice-president  Kamala Harris, you should resign. So far, this genocide has killed over 8,000 innocent Palestinians. Over 3,000 have been children, but there is probably much more lying dead under the rubble of Israeli bombs. Much more will die from not just the incessant bombings, but also from the Israeli blockade of water, electricity, fuel, medical supplies, food and more. Make no mistake, these conditions Palestinians face are worse than the holocaust.

Only a mere 13 congress persons tried in vain to obtain a ceasefire. Instead the other 423 overruled them, opting for the continued killing of innocent Palestinian civilians. Sadly, peace is unpopular and might is right prevails. You, a black woman,  have been relegated to being a hapless mouthpiece to justify unrestricted support for an apartheid nation to commit genocide. How humiliating!

Of course, by resigning you will be sacrificing you political future. Unfortunately, morality has become a severe handicap to American political success. The notorious American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), the military industrial complex and the powerful  warmongers will sink their teeth into you. You are black and you are a woman, so political success is  incredibly tough anyway Don’t be a part of this disgraceful government. You are completely helpless to change it. Don’t compromise your ethics.

To resign from one if the highest positions in America would be a powerful statement. But, you are of Jamaican heritage. Resign and make Jamaicans like me proud. Resign and make your fellow Indians proud. Resign and make black people proud. Resign and inspire those brave protestors like members of Jewish Voice for Peace and Codepink, who risked reprisals. Resign so you can give hope to oppressed people here and all over the world.

  • Shakespeare noted in Hamelet that conscience makes cowards of us all.

    But conscienscience is really dead.

    It is commendable now to be shameless.

    And Kamala Harris is shameless and cowardly.

    Why would she be proud of her Jamaican heritage when she has dishonoured her father whose name she wears with convenient pride.

    Was her father at her inaguration?

    When was the last time she mentioned his name?

    Has she spoken with him lately?

    Isn't she examplary!

    Her allegiance is to India (maybe), but definately to the heritage of her husband though his surname does not assist her to reach her inspirational aim..

    Israel lines her aspirational-pocket and lies in her bed.
