The Message is: As Israel Sees Fit

An official in the American government claims that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office informed the White House that it would send a delegation to Washington to discuss the upcoming Rafah operation.

Netanyahu had previously canceled the delegation following the U.S.’s decision to allow the UN Security Council to pass a resolution calling for a ceasefire in Gaza.

Earlier this week, the Prime Minister’s Office denied the report. “Contrary to publications, the Prime Minister did not approve the departure of the delegation to Washington.” Netanyahu said, “My decision not to send the delegation to Washington in the wake of that resolution was a message to Hamas: Don’t bet on this pressure, it’s not going to work. I hope they got the message,”

However, just today, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu informed the War Cabinet he will dispatch a delegation to Washington next week. No date for the meeting has been set and the delegation’s departure is not yet approved.

If Prime Minister Netanyahu’s message is a bit confusing, too bad! Israel is conducting its business as a sovereign nation as it sees fit. That’s the message here.
