In his first three weeks in office, President Joe Biden has made a flurry of phone calls to American allies around the world, including the leaders of Canada, Britain, France and Japan.
But one close American ally’s leader has so far been left conspicuously off the new president’s call list: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
While it is clear that Biden has his hands full with a myriad domestic challenges, every day the phone doesn’t ring adds to concerns in Israel that Netanyahu is being frozen out by the new Democratic administration because of his close ties with Donald Trump and his public antagonism of Barack Obama.

This was big on Twitter.

Biden is sending Israel and Netanyahu a clear message: the absolute crap you got away with under Trump is over; and you'll wait in line for me to tell you how things are going to be.

I'll probably catch all kinds of hell for this but fuck Israel. Seriously. They've broken internation law for decades, broken agreements they've signed for decades and any time anybody calls them on their bullshit they scream that you're a nazi anti semite.

Seriously. Fuck them.

Well, moving the embassy to Jerusalem was bad.

Switching long established and accepted views on the West Bank was worse.

Making bogus "peace" deals where no peace deals were actually made was even worse.

Having two criminals working together didn't do anybody any favors. I don't put that at the feet of the Israeli people at large. I put that at the feet of the two criminals: Donald Trump and Benjamin Netanyahu.

Very politically correct way to put it but come on man. They've been doing that shit for decades. Push push push, bully bully bully, get called on it and then play the victim. They're just like the fucking GOP.
