Report: White House Asking What It Takes to Break Netanyahu


A breaking report by Intelligencer casts a dark shadow over the traditional bond between Israel and the United States, at least under the Biden Administration.

Citing Itamar Rabinovich, a former Israeli ambassador to the U.S. and an authority on the relationship between the two countries, it seems like the White House has been unhappy with Netanyahu for a long time.

“They’re even angrier and they are sharpening the tone. Biden is not coming at him personally, but off-the-record and in closed meetings, the sentiment is clear. They disagree on many things: on Gaza the day after the war; on the Palestinian Authority; on a return to Israeli-Palestinian negotiations; all very significant issues,” Rabinovich says.

A second source, described as a “serious administration figure,” is asking about will force the Netanyahu coalition to collapse.

President Biden’s attitude towards Netanyahu became apparent to the public following the president’s State of the Union address. Caught on a hot mic after the speech, Biden was stopped by Senator Michael Bennet of Colorado, who told him to “keep pushing” Israel’s premier. Biden responded, “I told him, ‘Bibi,’— don’t repeat this— ‘you & I are going to have a come to Jesus moment.”
