Israel-Gaza War, United States

Prime Minister Netanyahu: Willing to suffer personal attacks if Israel gets the weapons it needs

Netanyahu posted this statement on X following published comments from the Biden administration calling his statement on weapons shipments delays "embarrassing."

Following reports of officials in the Biden administration calling Prime Minister Netanyahu's video statement criticizing the US for delayed weapons shipments "embarrassing," Netanyahu posted on X that "I am willing to suffer personal attacks so long as Israel receives the ammunition it needs in the war for its existence from the United States."

Netanyahu is not the only one arguing that the US is dragging its feet in providing Israel with needed weapons shipments, even after Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said that aside from one bomb shipment, everything was moving.

According to the Washington Free Beacon, Republican Senator Tom Cotton sent a letter to the Biden administration accusing them of engaging in bureaucratic foot dragging.

Cotton alleged that previously, once the war started, the Biden administration had forgone formal notification to Congress of weapons shipments due to "emergency reasons" to fast track their delivery, but that this emergency procedure had been dropped after 20 anti-Israel Democrats sent a letter to the administration criticizing this sped up delivery process.

Cotton thus argued that US delays went far beyond this or that shipment of bombs and effectively covered all weapons deliveries to Israel in support of the war.
