Meanwhile, the Israeli authorities, on the official level, are very wary of launching positions that show their support for this or that candidate. As she is free of useless public comments that have negative repercussions on her interests, regardless of her actual position on either of the candidates. But with the glimpse of two hands approaching the White House, she should have warned of the consequences of his positions on Iran, if the man really kept them. Until yesterday, it was difficult to find official Israeli positions on the two candidates, even though the Hebrew media was saturated with comments, reports, and leaks, which could not be taken into account in understanding the official position. Accordingly, any direct position issued by an Israeli official is remarkable and indicative, and it applies to what was issued yesterday by a minister from the Likud party.
The Minister of Settlements, Tzachi Hanegbi, who is also an expert on national security and “regional cooperation,” warned that Biden’s position on the nuclear agreement could lead to a war between Israel and Iran, pointing out that “Biden has said publicly and for a long time that he will return to the nuclear agreement, I think that this matter will lead to a confrontation between Israel and Iran. ” Hanegbi’s statements came in an interview with the Hebrew “Channel 13”, in which he also confirmed that he was not concerned about Biden’s possible victory on most fronts and squares, including settlement in the West Bank, adding that “the position on Iran is a stark exception.”
Hanegbi’s statement, which came as an exception to the official rule of silence about commenting on the US elections, is a kind of reassurance to the Israeli public, after months of media campaigns of intimidation at the media level about the damages of Biden’s victory on Israel, but it also delineates the limits of what is acceptable and unacceptable to the Democratic candidate, specifically Regarding the implementation of his public promise to return to the nuclear deal with Iran. However, the head of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Security Committee, Zvi Hauser, reassured the Israelis, in turn, that Biden’s victory would not harm Israel, describing Trump’s rival as a “true friend,” and considering in an interview on Military Radio yesterday that even if Biden had baptized “ Renewing the deal “with Iran, it will be a better deal than the one that preceded it, as we have broad agreement that there are large loopholes (in the 2015 agreement) regarding the interests of the free world.” Hauser said that the Middle East has changed since Biden left office in 2016, and that “Iran is more dangerous in the region, and with more accurate and deadly technologies, this is not only the problem of Israel, but the problem of the whole world.” In view of the comparison between Trump and Biden, Hauser stressed that the most important thing for Israel is to restrict Iran and prevent it from acquiring a nuclear weapon, even though the two candidates have different ways of dealing with Iran.
Between Hanegbi’s warning and Hauser’s optimism, it seems clear that there is an official Israeli eagerness to conceal anxiety, which can be seen from the overall Israeli approach expressed in various ways and methods in recent weeks, including the relative silence about the comment. It is clear that uncertainty surrounds the Israeli assessment of what is coming, not with regard to the Palestinian arena or the path of normalization with the Arab rulers, where Trump has established equations that do not need to be changed or jumped over if Biden wins the presidency, but rather in the approach that will impose itself on the winner, after proven Iranian steadfastness. That “maximum pressure” could not push Iran to back down.
