Biden administration shift on Gaza?

I’m no expert on this stuff but this does seem like the possible beginnings of a substantive shift:

President Biden warned Israel’s leaders on Tuesday that they were losing international support for their war in Gaza, exposing a widening rift with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who rejected out of hand the American vision for a postwar resolution to the conflict.

Mr. Biden delivered the blunt assessment of America’s closest ally in the Middle East during a fund-raiser in Washington, where he described Mr. Netanyahu as the leader of “the most conservative government in Israel’s history,” which “doesn’t want a two-state solution” to the country’s long-running dispute with Palestinians.

“Right now it has more than the United States,” Mr. Biden said of the support for Israel. “It has the European Union, it has Europe, it has most of the world supporting it. But they’re starting to lose that support by the indiscriminate bombing that takes place.”

The president’s remarks came hours after Mr. Netanyahu pledged to defy weeks of American pressure to put the Palestinian Authority in charge of Gaza once the fighting ends. Mr. Netanyahu ruled out any role there for the group, which now governs Palestinian society in the Israeli-occupied West Bank.

Biden has been trying to walk a very fine line here, but I gather people in the administration are becoming increasingly concerned about the administration’s up until now very muted response to the siege of Gaza, and the gathering human rights and public health catastrophe that it represents.
