President Biden has had some bad moments with the Natanyhu Admin’s back in the day…
The new US policy with the players will cease from being just pro-Israel…..
That does Not mean Joe Biden doesn’t want peace…
And he won’t do foreign policy as an amateur level effort….
The Biden administration has now had more official contacts with Palestinian officials in its first two weeks than the Trump administration did in its final three years.
Why it matters: The State Department’s deputy assistant secretary for Israel-Palestine, Hady Amr, spoke by phone with multiple Palestinian officials on Monday. Those were the first publicly announced interactions between the sides as the Biden administration moves to renew ties that had been effectively severed since Donald Trump announced in December 2017 that he was moving the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.
What they’re saying: “We discussed bilateral relations, the latest current developments and politics. It was a positive conversation. It was agreed to continue communication,” the Palestinian minister for civilian affairs, Hussein al-Sheikh, tweeted after speaking with Amr.
The big picture: The Biden administration is planning to roll back many of Trump’s policies on Israel-Palestine.
- According to Biden administration officials, the U.S. will resume aid to the Palestinians and reopen the Palestinian Liberation Organization office in Washington as well as the consulate in Jerusalem.
- The Biden administration will oppose annexation, settlement building and the demolition of Palestinian homes by Israel….
