Joe Biden has yet another blackeye on his foreign policy during this term, but this one is a good one for conservatives.
Biden was trying to appease the Palestinians by reopening a U.S. diplomatic mission.
Israel, however, has objected, and now the plan may end up getting shelved entirely.
That Would Be a No
Democrats, over the last decade or so, have done just about everything in their power to alienate Israel as a major Middle East ally.
Not long after Biden took office, Secretary of State Blinken announced the United States would be reopening the consulate to help repair relationships with Palestine.
This was not a move then-PM Benjamin Netanyahu supported.
When a new regime took over leadership in Israel, Biden probably figured he had a much better shot of this happening.
It has not quite panned out as much as he would have liked.
On the reopening of the Palestinian mission, Deputy Foreign Minister Idan Roll stated, “I believe that I have good reason to think this will not happen.
“The Americans understand the political complexity.
“We have very good relations … We don’t believe in surprising them. I don’t think they will try to surprise us.”
The progressives in the party are going to lose their minds if this decision becomes final, as they simply despise Israel and have regularly accused the country of war crimes.
It could create yet another break in the party between the establishment and the new wing of progressives joining the Squad.
This just gets added to the long line of foreign policy disasters Joe Biden has had in his short time in office.
Thankfully, this is one conservatives can actually celebrate.
