Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated that his country does not intend to adhere to the “red line” warning issued by Democratic President Joe Biden.

The Washington Examiner reports, “Netanyahu brushed off President Joe Biden’s concerns and criticisms, vowing to move forward with Israel’s military occupation in Gaza.”

The statement was made by Biden during an interview with MSNBC on Saturday. In the interview, he was questioned about whether an invasion of Rafah, located in the southern part of Gaza on the border with Egypt, would be considered a red line. Biden confirmed that it would indeed be a red line. This indicates that if Netanyahu were to proceed with an invasion of Rafah, the United States would perceive it as crossing a boundary that should not be crossed in its fight against Hamas terrorists, as reported by Politico.

During the interview, Biden went on to claim that “Netanyahu is ‘hurting Israel more than helping Israel’ in his approach to the war against Hamas in Gaza’.”

Biden said that he told Netanyahu that “he must pay more attention to the innocent lives being lost as a consequence of the actions taken.”

“I think it’s a big mistake,” he warned.

This signifies a subtle difference compared to the pro-Israel communication that we have witnessed from Biden ever since Hamas initiated its terrorist assault on Israel in October 2023. In a subsequent interview, Netanyahu addressed Biden’s comments on MSNBC.

“I don’t know exactly what the president meant, but if he meant by that that I’m pursuing private policies against the majority, the wish of the majority of Israelis, and that this is hurting the interests of Israel, then he’s wrong on both counts,” Netanyahu said.

Then, Netanyahu concluded:

“So, the attempt to say that my policies are my private policies that are not supported by most Israelis, is false.

“The vast majority are united as never before.

“And they understand what’s good for Israel.

“They understand what’s important for Israel.

“And I think they’re right.”
