Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is set to travel to the United States next Sunday (Sept. 17) for the first time since his reelection last November.
He has a busy schedule but so far, there is no meeting has been planned with President Joe Biden.
The Biden Administration appears to be continuing its boycott of Israel’s longest-serving prime minister, who is now in his sixth term.
Netanyahu is scheduled to arrive in San Francisco on Monday, where he is expected to meet with high-tech billionaire Elon Musk, who owns X (formerly called Twitter), as well as SpaceX, Tesla, Neuralink, and other companies.
Musk, who recently “liked” posts with the hashtag #BanTheADL, was accused of allowing antisemitic tweets to run rampant on his social media platform. He threatened to sue the Anti-Defamation League, accusing the organization of falsely accusing him and X of being antisemitic.
The prime minister is scheduled to travel Monday evening to New York, where he will address the United Nations General Assembly that Thursday (Sept. 21), according to Israel’s Ambassador to the UN, Gilad Erdan.
Thus far, there are no published plans to meet with America’s president.
More than 3,500 Israeli cultural and academic “elite” signed a letter urging Biden not to meet with Netanyahu.
Netanyahu is expected to return to the Jewish State the following Sunday.
