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.”

Historic Recall: San Francisco recalls soft on crime District Attorney
San Francisco voters have officially recalled extreme progressive Chesa Boudin. The San Francisco Chronicle noted the event as a “historic recall.”
BREAKING: San Francisco removes Chesa Boudin in historic recall.
— San Francisco Chronicle (@sfchronicle) June 8, 2022
“The election, closely-watched across the nation, came after months of intense debate over criminal justice and public safety in San Francisco” writes the Chronicle.
The voters are “frustrated with a dysfunctional city” and horrendous crime rates. They saw “an elected official unwilling to acknowledge he was at least partly responsible for the problems – and cast him out.”
Boudin received an overwhelming 60% vote in favor of recall. San Francisco voters “embrace being labeled as progressive” but “decided they wanted a more traditional crime-fighter as district attorney and delivered what will be viewed nationally as a blow to efforts to reshape criminal justice” adds the Chronicle.
