Biden intends to sanction IDF group

In another display of contempt for Israel after October 7, 2023's Hamas bloodbath, the Biden faux-administration wants to impose sanctions upon a IDF group, and look who's behind the campaign for it:
According to NGO Monitor, an organization named DAWN has been acting recently with the aim of pressuring the American government to impose sanctions on Israeli military personnel and units in the IDF, as reported by the newspaper 'Israel Hayom.'

For example, in April 2023, the organization sent a memo to the U.S. State Department calling for sanctions against a military judge and the military secretary of President Isaac Herzog.

Shortly after the event in October, the organization filed a private complaint with the State Department against the Netzach Yehuda battalion and its commanders. In December 2023, it sent a list of 40 Israeli officers to the Prosecutor General of the International Criminal Court in The Hague, demanding an investigation against them. Among other things, a public campaign was conducted in which their pictures and personal details were distributed.

NGO Monitor reported that several senior employees and board members of the organization have connections to the Muslim Brotherhood and they expressed support for the terrorist organization Hamas. Others are former senior members of extreme anti-Israel organizations, with a history of antisemitic statements and support for terrorist attacks. [...]

The sources noted that the American sanctions would prohibit transferring American military aid to the 'Netzach Yehuda' battalion, prevent its soldiers and officers from participating in training with the U.S. army, or participating in activities funded by the US.

Prime Minister Netanyahu commented, "It is forbidden to impose sanctions on the Israel Defense Forces. I have been acting in recent weeks against imposing sanctions on Israeli citizens, including in my talks with senior officials of the American government. At a time when our soldiers are fighting terror monsters, the intention to impose sanctions on an IDF unit is the height of absurdity and a low of values. The government under my leadership will act with all means against these moves."
Connections to the MB says all one needs to know that something is horrifyingly wrong with this picture. Former ambassador Michael Oren says this will harm the USA's military as well:
“It’s true. If there is an intention to sanction any unit of the Israeli Army, it's totally unacceptable. It's a violation of our sovereignty. It's a slap in the face of the IDF. It's also a very dangerous precedent because what begins with Netzach Yehuda, could end tomorrow with Golani or the Paratroopers, where young men and women who fought in our army, could go visit a foreign capital and find themselves being arrested at an airport. It's even dangerous for the US because what begins with the IDF could end with the American armed forces, with Marines being arrested at airports and when America goes to protest, other countries might say, ‘Well, you did this to Israel.’ So, it's a very, very bad precedent and it's also a blow to Israeli society, where we are trying to resolve the issue of Haredi service in the military and now comes along this action, which will say basically to the Haredi community, ‘You serve in the IDF and you end up getting sanctioned,’” says Dr. Oren.
Yes, it's damaging in that regard too, since now it can end up discouraging Haredis from serving based on how they're being discriminated against. This is another most repulsive act of contempt against Israel.
