Vice President Joe Biden slammed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu recently at a gala event put on by J Street, a group that sees itself as a Jewish alternative to AIPAC.
Biden blamed Netanyahu for taking Israel in “the wrong direction”, according to AP.
“I firmly believe that the actions that Israel’s government has taken over the past several years — the steady and systematic expansion of settlements, the legalization of outposts, land seizures — they’re moving us and more importantly they’re moving Israel in the wrong direction,” Biden said, according to Fox News.
He said there will soon be a single state for Palestinians where Jews will not be the majority.
In another dig at Netanyahu and his Likud Party, Biden singled out for praise Stav Shaffir, a young member of Israel's parliament and a Netanyahu critic from the left wing of Israeli politics.
"May your views begin to once again become the majority opinion in the Knesset," Biden said.
