BREAKING: Enraged Joe Biden cancels high-level meeting with Israel after Netanyahu calls him out for withholding weapons

Joe Biden and his aides were fuming after Netanyahu released a video calling out Biden for withholding weapons and ammunition from Israel.

They were so angry that they canceled a meeting with Israel to discuss Iran which was scheduled for Thursday. Some of the Israelis were already enroute to the US for the meeting.

Here’s the scoop from Axios:

The White House canceled a high-level U.S.-Israel meeting on Iran that was scheduled for Thursday after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu released a video on Tuesday claiming the U.S. was withholding military aid, two U.S. officials tell Axios.

President Biden’s top advisers were enraged by the video — a message U.S. envoy Amos Hochstein delivered personally to Netanyahu in a meeting hours after it was published, two U.S. and Israeli sources say. Then the White House decided to go a step farther by canceling Thursday’s meeting.

“This decision makes it clear that there are consequences for pulling such stunts,” a U.S. official said.

“The Americans are fuming. Bibi’s video made a lot of damage,” a senior Israeli official said, using a nickname for Netanyahu.

Some Israeli officials were already en route to Washington when the meeting was cancelled.

Two U.S. officials told Axios the meeting was canceled to send a message about the video. A third claimed the meeting was postponed rather than canceled, due to a scheduling issue.

I’m sure they are pissed off at Netanyahu, but he’s the one who should be pissed! Joe Biden is backstabbing him over the war in Gaza because all Biden cares about is winning an election. Netanyahu is fighting for Israel’s life and it’s outrageous that he doesn’t have Biden’s full support.
