Guess Who Finally Got An Invitation From The White House

In a move that has left many Republicans furious, President Biden recently reached out to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to schedule a meeting this year, just days before Israel’s ceremonial President Isaac Herzog is set to address Congress. This blatant interference in Israeli domestic affairs has only added fuel to the fire of Republican discontent with the Biden administration.

Caroline Glick, a prominent American Israeli commentator, didn’t hold back in her criticism of Biden’s actions. In an interview with Fox News Digital, she accused the Biden administration of siding with the opposition and undermining the democratically elected Israeli government. Glick went on to say that the Biden administration’s policy toward Israel is “totally hostile to more than half of the country” and is causing anger and frustration among Israelis.

Glick’s concerns are not unfounded. The recent comments by Democratic progressive Rep. Pramila Jayapal, who referred to Israel as a “racist state,” have further fueled the divide between the Democratic Party and Israel. Glick argued that the progressive wing of the Democratic Party has mainstreamed contemporary antisemitism, and their influence is pushing the party away from supporting Israel.

It is not just commentators like Glick who are expressing their outrage. More than 40 House Democrats condemned Jayapal’s remarks in a public letter, emphasizing that Israel is the legitimate homeland of the Jewish people and that efforts to delegitimize and demonize it are dangerous and antisemitic.

The strained relationship between Biden and Netanyahu is evident. Yaakov Katz, a former editor-in-chief of the Jerusalem Post, highlighted that Biden’s disapproval of the judicial reform and his recent invitation to Herzog, not Netanyahu, suggest a lack of good relations between the two leaders.

However, there may be a glimmer of hope for improved relations between the U.S. and Israel. Ariel Kahana, a senior diplomatic commentator, cautiously expressed optimism and noted that the invitation extended to Netanyahu by Biden has improved the atmosphere between the two countries.

But Republicans are not willing to overlook Biden’s alleged hostility toward Israel’s government. At the Christians United for Israel (CUFI) annual summit, Florida’s Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis labeled the Biden administration’s policies towards Israel as “disgraceful” and called for the repair of the U.S.-Israel relationship.

Former U.S. ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley echoed these sentiments during her speech at CUFI, emphasizing that Biden has weakened America and failed to stand by Israel. Haley also criticized Biden’s approach to Iran, highlighting the administration’s lack of action and its waiver of sanctions on Iran’s nuclear program.

As tensions between Israel and Iran continue to escalate, Herzog’s upcoming speech to Congress becomes even more significant. It is expected that he will address Iran’s nuclear weapons program and its threat to regional security.

The Biden administration’s interference in Israeli affairs, combined with its perceived weak stance on Iran, has left many Republicans disillusioned. They believe that America needs a pro-Israel president who will stand firmly by Israel’s side and prioritize the security and well-being of our closest Middle East ally. Only time will tell if these concerns will be addressed and if the U.S.-Israel relationship can be repaired under the Biden administration.
