According to the New York Post, despite her earlier strong advocacy for Israel during her time at the prestigious San Diego Jewish Academy, her perspective shifted after enrolling at Berkeley and engaging with Palestinian-Americans.

Greenberg Call is at least the fifth mid- or senior-level administration staffer to make public their resignation in protest of the Biden administration’s military and diplomatic support of the now seven-month Israeli war against Hamas.

She is the second political appointee to do so after an Education Department official of Palestinian heritage resigned in January.
