Israel Must Use Biden’s Visit to Focus on What Really Matters

Tamir Hayman

Israel Hayom, July 8, 2022

“Without a new concept on the [Iran] matter, Israel may find itself in the future in a situation where it needs to operate under conditions and timing beyond its control. Since the severe attribution scenario includes a regional escalation, Israel would need American backing for any such move.”

From an Israeli perspective, a visit by an American president is always a significant event. The leader of the world’s top superpower – Israel’s closest and most important friend – is coming to Israel and this is an opportunity to focus the conversation on the strategic issues most critical to our security.

However, one would be wise to remember that the Middle East and Israel are not at the top of the US administration’s priorities at this time. The war in Ukraine, the trade war with China, the looming recession, and the mid-term elections in November – are just some of the issues troubling US President Joe Biden and his staff.

Still, after some expectation management, there are four issues on which progress would be considered an achievement for Israel, albeit they are not necessarily the same issues Biden will want to promote while he tours the region.
