The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) has called on President Joe Biden to halt all weapons deliveries to Israel indefinitely and push for an immediate and permanent ceasefire in the Gaza Strip. The civil rights organization believes that the ongoing conflict has led to unacceptable civilian casualties and displacement.

The NAACP’s statement emphasizes the need for the U.S. to use its influence to bring about a peaceful resolution and stop the shipment of weapons that could be used in the conflict.

The organization’s president, Derrick Johnson, stated that the U.S. must show moral leadership by ceasing the supply of weapons to Israel and other states that support Hamas and other terrorist organizations, he highlighted the importance of a ceasefire and the return of hostages held by Hamas. Johnson also urged Israel to adhere to international and humanitarian laws in its offensive strategy.

The organization’s stance reflects a growing concern among Black voters about Biden’s support for Israel and its potential impact on the November elections.
