Biden To Bibi: 'You And I Are Going To Have A Come To Jesus Moment'

In light of this, and his announcement that the U.S. would built a temporary pier on the Gaza coast to deliver food and humanitarian supplies, sounds like Old Joe is ready to lower the boom on Bibi. Via the Daily Beast:

U.S. President Joe Biden was recorded saying he told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu they are going to have a “come to Jesus moment” in a conversation on the sidelines of the State of the Union address on Thursday.

“I told him: ‘Bibi, and don’t repeat this, you and I are going to have a come to Jesus moment,” Biden whispered to a group of lawmakers who had gathered around him—including Sen. Michael Bennet (D-CO)—after his main address. During the conversation, the president was interrupted by an aide who warned him that he was a “hot mic,” to which Biden responded “Good. That’s good.”

The hot mic moment comes as tensions between Netanyahu and Biden have reached an all-time high, exacerbated by the high civilian death toll of Israel’s war in Gaza, Netanyahu’s total rejection of Palestinian statehood, and recent meetings between top U.S. officials and Netanyahu’s main political rival, Israeli minister Benny Gantz.
