Tel Aviv's "hard decision"


Tel Aviv's "hard decision"

US Secretary of State, Anthony Blinken, on his last tour to the Middle East after visiting Turkey, Jordan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, left for Tel Aviv for the fourth time in the last three months, and after negotiating with the officials of the Zionist regime, he said: "If the leaders of Israel wants its Arab neighbors to make tough decisions to help ensure Tel Aviv's sustainable security, they must make difficult decisions themselves."The question here is what is the "hard decision" of the Zionist regime?

NOURNEWS- The latest visit of the White House envoy to Tel Aviv was in no way, shape or form comparable to the first visit of US President Joe Biden to the occupied territories after the surprise operation of Hamas, the "Al-Aqsa Storm". There was no news of the red carpet of the Israeli regime for Biden and the welcoming of the American president as a "savior" by the citizens living in the occupied territories and the warm hugs of the American leaders and the Israeli regime officials.

At the same time as Blinken's trip to the region, newspapers and other media attributed to or close to the United States have focused on the serious disagreement between the Cabinet of Joe Biden and Benjamin Netanyahu on how to continue the attacks on Gaza, as well as the "tomorrow of war", which is an interesting topic.

Also on Monday, when a group of protesters in South Carolina chanted "ceasefire, now" during Joe Biden's visit to a historic black church; In response, Biden said that "quietly" he has encouraged Tel Aviv to reduce attacks and seriously reduce its presence in Gaza, and in such an atmosphere it was predictable that a media such as Channel 12 of the Zionist regime claims; The meeting between the US Secretary of State and the Prime Minister of the Zionist regime will be accompanied by tension.

Anthony Blinken's stance after meeting with Tel Aviv leaders, including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Defense Minister Yoav Galant, and President Isaac Herzog, confirmed this view. Emphasizing his country's support for the Zionist regime and stressing that "the 7th of October should not be repeated", the American foreign minister said: "Our unique bond and the enduring commitment of the United States to the people of Israel make it clear at the moment when the danger is at its highest level to be precise; Especially when the choices matter the most and this It is one of those moments."The statements of the US secretary of state showed that, unlike Blinken's three previous trips, "Tomorrow of war" was the focus of the US foreign minister's regional talks.

Then, recalling his visits before visiting the occupied territories, he said that the regional allies, including the Arab countries, declared that they support stable solutions that guarantee "Israel's security", and at the same time, they believe that this solution has an executive guarantee when it recognizes the Palestinian independence and their independent country be together.

Blinken, who already knew that such an option was not desirable for Tel Aviv, stressed: "If Israel wants its Arab neighbors to make tough decisions that help ensure sustainable security of Tel Aviv, Israel's leaders must make tough decisions themselves." "As I told the War Cabinet and other senior officials in Tel Aviv, the United States stands by Israel to ensure the security of its northern borders," he added. "We are fully committed to working with Israel to find a diplomatic solution that prevents escalation and allows families to return to their homes to live in northern Israel as well as southern Lebanon." Making it clear that the United States rejects any proposal to settle them outside of Gaza, Blinken stressed: "Israel must stop taking actions that undermine the ability of the Palestinians to govern themselves effectively."

By saying that there is no alternative solution, Blinken invited the Israeli regime to accept these proposals and, of course, left many questions. Among other things, how "serious" or "showy" is the alleged dispute between Washington and Tel Aviv about how to continue the attacks and the next day of the war? Is the US secretary of state playing the card of Tel Aviv's regional and Arab allies and the fate of "normalizing relations with Israel" a part of the scenario of the withdrawal of the Zionist regime from Gaza?

Finding answers to these questions requires examining the war-torn image of Gaza and the occupied territories today: the killing of more than 23,000 Palestinians, 11,000 of whom were children and 7,000 women, by the Zionist regime, the captivity of more than 100 Zionist prisoners by Hamas, the expansion of Yemen's missile and drone operations. against Israeli ships or vessels carrying goods to the occupied territories and the growing tension in southern Lebanon have created a complex situation in West Asia, the consequences of which have not left America and Europe alone. The decline of Joe Biden's popularity due to his full financial, weapons and political support for the massacre in Gaza on the eve of the presidential election of this country is only a part of the costs that America has paid so far. Undoubtedly, the collapse of the few achievements of the "normalization of relations with Israel" plan and the unprecedented isolation of the Zionist regime in the international arena and the realistic judgment of the world public opinion about this regime, was definitely not a dream that America had for Tel Aviv. The image of the war between the Zionist regime and Hamas, which is clearly presented to the world today, is very different from the image that America and the Israeli regime created for themselves three months ago, and therefore international observers believe that the scenario of the possible withdrawal of the Zionist regime in the name of saving the agreements Security and economic of Tel Aviv and the release of Israeli prisoners in the hands of Hamas is more than being a "diplomatic" effort by America to reduce tension, it is a struggle to cover up the failure of the Zionist regime to achieve the goals it stated at the beginning of the attack. Especially as it has been mentioned, the attacks of the Israeli regime will be "pointed" from now on; An attribute that is more than being attached to Tel Aviv, it has an American intellectual background. Based on this, it seems that the hemlock that Blinken offered to Netanyahu in the occupied territories is more of a "goal-oriented withdrawal" than a "difficult decision"!
