Joe Biden Embarrassed in Israel: Do not cut down the tree that gives you shade.

The recent visit of US Vice President Joe Biden showed that the US and Israel are in disagreement  over Jerusalem building projects. The world knows that the continued building of new settlements in Palestinian land is one of the problems that slows down the peace process between Palestinians and Israelis.

The US administration has been very vocal against Israeli settlement expansion in the occupied territories. The latest incident happened during Biden’s visit to Israel, when the Israeli government announced plans to build 1,600 homes in East Jerusalem. It is humiliating for the US administration and arrogant of the Jewish state to ignore international laws and their closest allies. As the Berber of Morocco say, “Do not cut down the tree that gives you shade.”
