Palestine: America show concern as Countries turn on Israel

The United States of America has raised concerns about Israel’s increasing diplomatic isolation as multiple nations show sympathy for Palestine.

This was highlighted by President Joe Biden’s national security adviser, Jake Sullivan, during a press briefing at the White House on Wednesday.

Sullivan’s comments come in the wake of Ireland, Spain, and Norway’s decision to formally recognize Palestine as a state next week. This move has intensified Israel’s isolation among countries that have traditionally been its allies.

Adding to the tension is the recent decision by the International Criminal Court (ICC) to seek an arrest warrant for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu over actions taken by Israel in Gaza.

When asked about Israel’s diplomatic isolation, Sullivan acknowledged the issue.

“As a country that stands strong in defense of Israel in international forums like the United Nations, we certainly have seen a growing chorus of voices, including voices that had previously been in support of Israel, drift in another direction,” he said.

Sullivan expressed the U.S.’s concern over this trend, emphasizing that it could undermine Israel’s long-term security and vitality.

“That is of concern to us because we do not believe that contributes to Israel’s long-term security or vitality … So that’s something we have discussed with the Israeli government,” he added.

The U.S. continues to monitor the situation closely and remains in dialogue with Israeli officials to address these diplomatic challenges.
