Experts and analysts agreed that the differences between the administration of the US President joe biden And the Prime Minister of the Israeli occupation Benjamin Netanyahu It has reached an unprecedented point where the gray areas have disappeared, and each of them is betting on the other's failure.
The latest chapter of this dispute was highlighted by NBC, quoting American officials, that the differences between the Biden administration and Netanyahu have become more clear after US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken’s recent visit to… IsraelAnd Washington is now looking beyond the Netanyahu era, in order to achieve its goals in the region.
The network says – quoting officials – that White House He is trying to coordinate with Israeli leaders, in order to form a government to succeed Netanyahu's government, and Netanyahu quickly responded in denial, cutting off any interaction with him, considering it a leak from the Biden administration aimed at spreading it inside Israel.
During his participation in the program “Gaza… What Next?”, Dr. Liqaa Makki, senior researcher at the Al Jazeera Center for Studies, said that Netanyahu was keen to respond to this news, to prevent America from finding helpers outside the framework of the government, and he was also keen to please The right is keen to confront any force competing with it for power, even if it is supported by America.
In the same context, Makki points out that Netanyahu transferred the war against the Islamic Resistance Movement (agitation) in Gaza StripHe moved from the stage of defending the state to the stage of defending the government, indicating in this context that every regime needs a war behind which it mobilizes its followers to continue, and this is what Netanyahu is doing.
Makki stressed that the matter has become in a clear trenches phase, characterized by clear contrast and black and white colors, as the American administration has its vision of the conflict and its future, which is completely different from what Netanyahu sees.
Makki believes that the Biden administration is in trouble, as it is unable to stop support for Israel, because it is not Netanyahu, and it cannot continue to support an Israeli prime minister who is absolutely opposed to it, and may lead to the downfall of its president in the elections, as Netanyahu is clearly betting on that, and hopes for a return. Donald Trump is back in power.
The senior researcher at Al Jazeera Center for Studies points out that, in order to remain in power, Netanyahu is ready to go to any lengths possible, including waging a war on… Iran Or Lebanon, because if that happens there will not be enough time to plot against it, as the war turns into a regional one that forces Washington to participate in it.
This is what was agreed upon by the writer specializing in Israeli affairs, Ihab Jabareen, who believes that Netanyahu is using the ambiguous issue to maintain confusion on the scene in order to continue in power, which is what primarily concerns him during this stage.
Jabareen added that Netanyahu's movements in recent years have all become tactical, through which he tries to escape the judiciary in any way, and therefore he is ready to do anything, even if he is forced to throw himself into the arms of the extreme right and its representatives in the government. Bezalel SmotrichAndItamar Ben Gvirwhom he was trying to eliminate previously.
Jabareen believes that there is an electoral war in the first place between Netanyahu and the Biden administration, as each of them believes that whoever goes to the elections first will lose, pointing out that Netanyahu is keen for “everyone to become dirty with the failure taking place in Gaza,” and not bear the consequences of the matter alone.
In this context, the expert on Israeli affairs explains that the dilemma that Israel is in now is an electoral dilemma, so stopping the war would be tantamount to a strategic defeat, and overthrowing the government would stop the war, which is something that none of the opposition leaders wants to register in its name.
William Lawrence, a former US State Department official, confirms that the Biden administration was happy with the end of Netanyahu's previous term, which confirms the deep-rooted dispute between the two sides, and Biden's desire to work with a different government, but Hamas's attacks were so severe that they pushed Israeli public opinion to the right.
Therefore, the government that is expected to succeed Netanyahu's government must also be from the right – according to Lawrence's opinion – but it may not be from the hard right, which can accept the American administration's vision of the necessity of ending the war as soon as possible.
