PM Benjamin Netanyahu Rejects Biden’s ‘Red Line’ Warning for Israel

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has asserted that his nation will not be following Democrat President Joe Biden’s “red line” warning.

The Washington Examiner reports, “Netanyahu brushed off President Joe Biden’s concerns and criticisms, vowing to move forward with Israel’s military occupation in Gaza.”

The response comes after Biden declared there was a “red line” regarding Israel’s battle with Hamas terrorists.

Biden made the remark in a Saturday interview with MSNBC.

During his MSNBC appearance, Biden was “asked whether an invasion of Rafah, in the south of Gaza on the border with Egypt, was a red line.”

The president responded in the affirmative, saying “It is a red line.”

By this, it is clear that Biden meant that, if Netanyahu proceeds with an invasion of Rafah, the United States would view Netanyahu as crossing a line that ought not to be crossed in its war against Hamas terrorists, according to Politico.

During the interview, Biden went on to claim that “Netanyahu is ‘hurting Israel more than helping Israel’ in his approach to the war against Hamas in Gaza’.”

Biden said that he told Netanyahu that “he must pay more attention to the innocent lives being lost as a consequence of the actions taken.”

The president added that the number of people killed in Gaza “is contrary to what Israel stands for.”

“I think it’s a big mistake,” he warned.

This marks a slight contrast from the pro-Israel messaging that we have been seeing from Biden since Hamas first carried out its terrorist attack against Israel in October 2023.

During a subsequent interview, Netanyahu responded to Biden’s MSNBC remarks.

“I don’t know exactly what the president meant, but if he meant by that that I’m pursuing private policies against the majority, the wish of the majority of Israelis, and that this is hurting the interests of Israel, then he’s wrong on both counts,” Netanyahu said.

He continued by explaining why Biden is wrong on both counts.

Then, Netanyahu concluded:

“So, the attempt to say that my policies are my private policies that are not supported by most Israelis, is false.

“The vast majority are united as never before.

“And they understand what’s good for Israel.

“They understand what’s important for Israel.

“And I think they’re right.”
