Biden in West Asia: A Fail? –MES EP.167
The visit of US President Joe Biden to west Asia can be read through several levels, which in total represent the main objectives of that visit. On the strategic level, his visit comes in the midst of the fierce and declared struggle of the United States of America with China and Russia over the battle to formulate an international system as the unipolar American era nears its end.

So last week, US president Joe Biden was on his first visit to West Asia since taking office early last year. His first stop was obviously Israel.

Neither this issue, nor the larger issue of the continuing violation of Palestinian human rights by the Israeli apartheid regime featured in Biden’s agenda.
