US President Joe Biden Considering a Visit to Israel Amid Gaza Conflict

According to government circles, US President Joe Biden (80) is apparently considering a visit to Israel in the coming days.

A senior government member told the AP news agency on Sunday (local time) that a decision had not yet been made. From the point of view of observers, a trip to Israel would be an opportunity for Biden to reaffirm the solidarity of the USA with the Israeli people after the brutal attacks by the militant Islamist Hamas there.

Ground offensive is imminent

His possible visit would come at a time of growing concern that an expected Israeli ground offensive against Hamas in the Gaza Strip could lead to an escalation of the conflict and devastating humanitarian consequences.

Iran, Hamas’ main supporter, could see Biden’s visit as a provocation. Arab countries may also take exception to a possible trip to Israel by the US president given the rising civilian casualties in the Gaza Strip. His Secretary of State Antony Blinken traveled through several Arab states last week after a visit to Israel and planned to return to Israel at the beginning of the week.

“Big mistake”

Biden himself warned the Israeli government not to reoccupy the Gaza Strip. “I think that would be a big mistake,” he said in an interview broadcast on CBS on Sunday. “Look, what happened in Gaza, in my view, is Hamas, and the extreme elements of Hamas do not represent the entire Palestinian people. And I think it would be a mistake for Israel to occupy Gaza again.”

At the same time, Biden emphasized that it was necessary to “eliminate the extremists.” Israel withdrew from the Gaza Strip in 2005, and Hamas won elections in the Palestinian territories the following year.
