Netanyahu’s defiant response to Biden overnight Wednesday shook Israel’s political and security establishment and exposed the prime minister to criticism for purportedly jeopardizing the country’s most vital diplomatic relationship. In the United States, the exchange reverberated across the political landscape, as Republicans accused Biden of undermining a key ally, and some Democratic activists called for him to take an even stronger stance in calling out Israel for potential antidemocratic moves…
Biden has signaled misgivings about Netanyahu’s path in recent weeks as the prime minister has pursued changes to the Israeli judicial system, saying the courts have grown too powerful. The president told reporters Tuesday that he remains “very concerned” about the proposal, which critics say would irreparably weaken Israel’s system of checks and balances.
“They cannot continue down this road,” Biden said Tuesday in North Carolina, just before boarding Air Force One en route to Washington.
The remarks were measured on their face but explosive by the standards of the carefully disciplined messaging that normally defines U.S.-Israeli interactions.
The president expanded on his comments after landing in Washington, saying of Netanyahu’s proposal, “I hope he walks away from it.”
Biden also dashed hopes in Jerusalem that Netanyahu, who has just started his sixth term in office, would make the traditional trip to the White House soon. Asked by reporters if such a visit was in the works, Biden responded tersely, “Not in the near term.”…
National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir, a far-right politician with roots in the radical settlers’ movement, complained that Israel is “not another star on the American flag. We are a democracy, and I expect the U.S. president to understand that.”
Netanyahu’s Israeli opponents, in contrast, welcomed Biden’s comments. Former army chief of staff and opposition leader Benny Gantz, who is rapidly rising in the polls, thanked Biden for delivering “an urgent wake-up call to the Israeli government.”
Netanyahu’s coalition, citing a mandate from its election victory in November, has proposed giving the ruling coalition more power to override Supreme Court decisions and to pick judges. The changes are needed, supporters say, because the courts have become too powerful at the expense of elected officials and are biased in favor of the country’s left wing. Opponents say the changes would put the country on a path to authoritarianism.
In a series of increasingly direct public comments, Biden and his aides have appeared to side with the opponents….
