Richard Goldberg

President Joe Biden and Sen. Chuck Schumer are losing patience with Israel’s defensive war in Gaza. While pressing Israel for “regime change” they are also threatening greater American pressure to achieve an outcome that suits the administration’s political priorities. But the Government of Israel has priorities as well, chiefly to ensure the security of the citizens while leaving a path for peaceful relations with its neighbors. Reconciliation appears difficult.
