José Andrés Condemns Israel For Killing Aid Workers: ‘Stop Using Food As A Weapon

The chef's charity World Central Kitchen is suspending operations in Gaza after Israel killed seven workers trying to deliver food to starving Palestinians.

“I am heartbroken and grieving for their families and friends and our whole WCK family,” Andrés wrote of the victims on X, formerly Twitter. “These are people...angels...I served alongside in Ukraine, Gaza, Turkey, Morocco, Bahamas, Indonesia. They are not faceless...they are not nameless.”

Israel: war-monger, land-stealer, architect of genocide.

World Central Kitchen, which operates in several countries in need of food assistance due to war and natural disasters, announced on Tuesday that it is immediately pausing aid operations in Gaza and will be “making decisions about the future of our work soon.”

The charity has delivered about 150,000 meals a day in Gaza by collaborating with Anera, a U.S.-based aid group that has operated in the Palestinian territories for decades. Anera also made the decision to suspend operations until the safety and security of aid workers can be guaranteed.

“The Israeli government needs to stop this indiscriminate killing. It needs to stop restricting humanitarian aid, stop killing civilians and aid workers, and stop using food as a weapon,” Andrés said. “No more innocent lives lost. Peace starts with our shared humanity. It needs to start now.”

Starving to death is a horrible way to die.

Do you know why, on Oct 7, HAMAS captured and tortured Israeli females by driving nails into their groins, raping them, and then shooting them in the vagina? Clearly, a symbolic killing of the entire race as Judaism is passed through the mother alone.

Hamas are stealing the food provided by Israel and killing Palestinians fighting for it.

Remember this ends when the hostages are released. It’s coming up for 6 months.

A close friend’s son volunteered for WCK in Poland (helping feed Ukrainian refugees) and WCK also spent a week or so recently in the Texas panhandle, feeding the first responders fighting that horrific wildfire. They are heroes.
