Joe Biden has continued to humiliate himself and the US with his delusional approach to Benjamin Netanyahu and the far-right government of Israel. Still, several of Israel’s actions have embarrassed the US and everything it’s doing now, from trying to destroy its own judiciary to a big uptick in aggression in the West Bank have put strain on the US-Israel relationship.
People calling it a “crisis” in US-Israel relations were miles ahead of themselves. But there is no doubt that there is a real sense of change in how Israel is seen, particularly in the Democratic party. My latest in Mondoweiss explores this.
