Once again, the Biden administration is trying to bring home a Saudi-Israeli normalization deal. The problem is that, with typical cluelessness, fecklessness, and ignorance, the administration does not understand the political waters it is wading into.
Both Saudi Arabia and Israel face major hurdles in trying to conclude this deal. The party which has by far the least to gain from it is the U.S. and Biden himself, something he also fails to understand. Biden has elevated political weakness and miscalculation to an art form in his two-plus years in office, and this latest doomed effort is just one more example. I explain in my latest at Mondoweiss.
