Biden, in Israel, has been given a clear message by Netanyahu that Israel has no intention of returning to its legally recognized 1967 borders, thus underscoring the likely emergence of a Palestinian Bantustan. Even Biden found this egregious insult a bit much to swallow and immediately issued a bold condemnation.
Now the American reputation is again on the line. The world’s only superpower will look very pitiful if it does nothing substantive to back up its vice president’s condemnation.
Thus the small issue of Palestine/Israel takes on broader security implications.
Keep an eye on this developing issue.
