Reema Dodin, announced on Monday as a deputy director of the White House Office of Legislative Affairs for the incoming Biden administration, referred to Palestinian suicide bombings as “the last resort of a desperate people” during the Second Intifada in 2002.

Dodin graduated from the University of California in 2002 with a degree in economics and political science and received a law degree from the University of Illinois in 2006.

She has volunteered in support of Palestinians, including a occupation protest to demand the University of California divest from Israel in 2000. 

According to the International Crisis Group, thirty suicide bombings killed 195 people in Jerusalem between 2000 and 2005.

“They say they want peace, but it’s a peace based on their rules,” Dodin previously said.

Dodin will be the first Palestinian-American to serve as a White House staffer, according to Palestinian media. 

She is currently a volunteer for Biden’s transition team and serves as Deputy Chief of Staff for Sen. Dick Durbin. She also volunteered for the Obama campaign.

In an interview with the Christian Science Monitor in 1981, Dodin insisted on self-determination for Palestinians, but added that Jews and Arabs “must live together, and no political solution can cancel this.”

Don Lemon loses it on Senators Manchin, Sinema for holding up voting bill: ‘that’s bull***’

CNN’s Don Lemon cursed out those “moderates” such as Senators Joe Manchin  (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) “who are blocking people’s access to the voting booth, they want to use Dr. King conveniently. They’re the biggest hypocrites on the planet.”

“If Sinema and Manchin really want to honor the legacy of Dr. King and all the people who fought for civil rights and voting rights in this country, what they would do is to carve out for voting rights with the filibuster” he continued.

“But for some reason they are stuck with these rules that are backwards…The filibuster has been used to block civil rights legislation forever and so we need to stop that. We evolved. Just because there is a rule doesn’t mean that that rule can’t change. The Constitution is amended. So it’s time to amend the rules. And fight and, and protect the most sacred right that we have as Americans, and that is the right to vote.”

Lemon then quotes Dr. Martin Luther King about a “white moderate, who is more devoted to ‘order’ than to justice….who lives by a mythical concept of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait for a ‘more convenient season.”

That sounds like the moderates, says Lemon, referring to Senators Manchin and Sinema. “And you’re supposed to be a Democrat who espouses to the ideals of Dr. King. That’s bull***t that’s B.S.”
