Biden rejects Israeli request to speed up delivery of jets needed for defense against Iran

Which side are Biden’s handlers on? Oh, that’s quite clear.

“Israeli request for speed up delivery of refueling jets rejected by U.S.,” by Yossi Yehushua, Ynet News, December 13, 2021 (thanks to Henry):

The Biden administration has rejected Israel’s request to expedite delivery of two KC-46 refueling jets out of four purchased, which would facilitate IAF flight to attack Iran, Ynet has learned.

Defense Minister Benny Gantz met with U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and Secretary of State Antony Blinken late last week for talks on the Iranian nuclear threat.

Gantz reportedly told his hosts that Israel was preparing for a military response….

The Boeing jets would allow dozens of Israeli bombers to remain airborne for up to 12 hours at a range of over 11,000 kilometers (6835 miles). They are critical to any operation against Iran – which is more than 1,000 kilometers (621 miles) away from Israel’s borders.

They are due to be delivered in four years and replace the IAF’s 50-year old planes….
