The True Price of Biden’s Mideast Refueling Campaign

Noa Landau    

U.S. President Joe Biden’s visits to Saudi Arabia and Israel this week will be overshadowed by the absence of two journalists unable to cover the events: Jamal Khashoggi and Shireen Abu Akleh. The two were killed under completely different circumstances, but ahead of the presidential visit, they have become, jointly, a symbol of the lack of international consequences for attacking the press and journalists.

Abu Akleh’s family also sent a letter to Biden, in which they asked to meet with him during his visit. The family, the letter said, feels “a sense of betrayal concerning your administration’s abject response to the extrajudicial killing of our sister and aunt by Israeli forces.”
