(July 18, 2022 / JNS) U.S. President Joe Biden’s visit to Israel and the Middle East accomplished most of the administration’s goals, but from Israel’s point of view the results were a mixed bag, experts told JNS.
While Biden did state in a Channel 12 interview that the military option was on the table as a last resort to stop Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon, in reality the United States is not prepared to use force at this time, according to professor Eytan Gilboa.
“I don’t think the United States has the stomach to go on another military operation,” said Gilboa, an expert on U.S.-Israel relations at Bar-Ilan University in Ramat Gan, and a senior fellow at the Jerusalem Institute for Strategy and Security. “But then the question is, what kind of coordination exists between Israel and the United States on what to do next?” he added.
