The Biden administration has once again put Israel in a precarious position, forcing them to choose between two of their most important allies. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been walking a tightrope between the United States and Russia, as both countries have been instrumental in helping Israel with their national security interests. The United States provides military aid, while Russia helps keep the northern border with Syria secure. This wouldn’t have been an issue if the Obama administration had kept Russia out of the Middle East, but their incompetence allowed the Assad regime to deploy chemical weapons with no consequences.
Under pressure from the U.S., Israeli PM Netanyahu is considering sending defensive arms to Ukraine, a move Russia has made clear would cross a red line and out of step with Netanyahu's long and friendly relationship with Russian President Putin. https://t.co/JNSCvR3occ

Now, Netanyahu is considering sending arms to Ukraine, a move that Moscow has declared would be a “red line” in their relationship. This is a direct result of the Biden administration’s foreign policy, which has been characterized by a lack of understanding of the region and its complexities. It is reckless and irresponsible for the Biden administration to pressure Israel into making a decision that could have serious repercussions for their security. Netanyahu has been clear that he does not want to rock the boat between Jerusalem and Moscow, yet he is being forced to do so by the Biden administration.
It is also concerning that the Biden administration is willing to risk a potential conflict between Israel and Russia. The Biden administration should be aware of the potential consequences of their actions and should be more mindful of the delicate balance that Israel must maintain in order to protect its national security interests. Instead, they are recklessly pushing Israel into a corner, forcing them to make a decision that could have disastrous consequences.
The Biden administration’s foreign policy appears to be driven by their own political agenda, rather than what is best for Israel. It is clear that the Biden administration is more concerned with appeasing their own political base than they are with protecting Israel’s security. This is yet another example of how the Biden administration’s foreign policy is misguided and dangerous for Israel, and it is time for them to reconsider their approach.
