Biden warned by US diplomats about growing anger in Arab countries: Report

The Biden administration has received warnings in private from US diplomats in the Arab world that its support for Israel's military campaign in Gaza "is losing us Arab publics for a generation".

The warning was revealed in diplomatic cables obtained by CNN

“We are losing badly on the messaging battlespace,” a cable from the US Embassy in Oman said.

The cable added that US support for Israel’s actions is being seen "as material and moral culpability in what they consider to be possible war crimes".

Another cable obtained by CNN from the US embassy in Cairo sent Washington the commentary in a state-run Egyptian newspaper, which stated that “President Biden’s cruelty and disregard for Palestinians exceeded all previous US presidents.”
