Oops! Biden made a surprising move with a foreign leader.

In a surprising move, President Biden reached out to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to schedule a meeting amidst mounting pressure from Republicans and Israel’s ceremonial President Isaac Herzog’s planned speech to Congress. The President’s alleged interference in Israeli domestic affairs has sparked anger among some in the Jewish state and Republican politicians and candidates.

Caroline Glick, a prominent American Israeli commentator, expressed her concerns about the Biden administration’s stance toward Israel, stating that it is “totally hostile to more than half of the country.” She criticized the administration for involving itself in Israeli domestic political fights over legal reform, jeopardizing the bond between the two nations.

Even within the Democratic Party, there is division on the issue. Progressive Rep. Pramila Jayapal’s remarks calling Israel a “racist state” drew criticism from over 40 House Democrats who publicly declared their support for Israel as the legitimate homeland of the Jewish people.

While President Herzog’s invitation to Washington highlights the close relationship between Israel and the U.S., it also raises questions about Biden’s strained relations with Netanyahu. Yaakov Katz, an expert on Israel’s secret missions, mentioned that Biden’s disapproval of Netanyahu’s judicial reform and the invitation timing indicate the existing tensions between the two leaders.

Ariel Kahana, a senior diplomatic commentator, cautiously expressed hope for improved relations between the U.S. and Israel, noting that the invitation extended to Netanyahu is a positive development. However, Republicans running for president, such as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, strongly criticized Biden’s policies toward Israel, calling them “disgraceful” and highlighting the need for repairing the U.S.-Israel relationship.

Former U.S. ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley also voiced her concerns about Biden’s approach, emphasizing the dangers of Iran’s alleged nuclear weapons program and accusing the administration of not taking decisive action. She urged the need for a pro-Israel president who would prioritize the security of both nations.

As President Herzog prepares to address Congress, the focus will likely be on Iran’s nuclear weapons program and its implications for regional security. Israel has long viewed Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons as an existential threat, taking proactive measures to prevent their development.

The Biden administration claims to be committed to preventing Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons through diplomacy, but critics argue that their approach falls short. With Israel’s security at stake, it is crucial for the U.S. to reassess its strategy and prioritize the safety and well-being of its strongest ally in the Middle East.
