The Biden administration has been the recipient of stark warning from its diplomats in the Arab world that its strong support for Israel’s destructive and deadly military campaign in Gaza “is losing us Arab publics for a generation,” informs a diplomat cable, reported by CNN.
The cable underscores profound concern among American officials about the growing anger against the United States that erupted soon after Israel launched its operations against Hamas, following the militant group’s attacks in Israel in October 7 that left over 1,400 Israelis dead.
“We are losing badly on the messaging battlespace,” reads a Wednesday cable from the US Embassy in Oman.
The recipient of the cable, which was written by the second-highest US official in Muscat, includes the White House’s National Security Council, the CIA, and the FBI. While it’s just one cable from a regional embassy, it provides a private snapshot of the alarm over the growing anti-US wave through the Middle East.
Another cable obtained by the news outlet was from Cairo. It contained the commentary from a state-run Egyptian newspaper that President Biden has succeeded all his previous U.S. presidents in regards of his cruelty and disregard for Palestinians.
