Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Biden Is Boxed In on Israel-Gaza, Able Only to Urge a Cease-Fire” – below is their description.
After days of declining to call for a cease-fire between Israel and Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip, President Joe Biden reversed course. Whether it makes a difference on the battlefield is another matter.
Biden’s decision to show “support for a cease-fire” in a call with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday signaled that the U.S. was looking for more public ways to stop the fighting. But his statement — expressing support for a halt to the deadly warfare but not demanding one outright — showed the limits of U.S. power and Biden’s wariness of applying too much public pressure on Israel.Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
