A top White House official expressed doubts about the Israeli government's commitment to creating a Palestinian state during a meeting with Arab American leaders in Michigan. US Deputy National Security Adviser Jon Finer criticized the Israeli government's lack of meaningful steps towards a two-state solution and called unnamed Israeli officials 'abhorrent.' He also expressed regret for the Biden administration's handling of the recent conflict between Israel and Hamas, particularly regarding civilian casualties and a perceived lack of concern. The comments come as the White House has increased public criticism of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's resistance to Palestinian statehood and his prosecution of the war.
