This is one of the fastest positions taken by the United States with regard to Israeli colonization in the Palestinian territories since the arrival of President Joe Biden at the White House at the beginning of the year.

Its predecessor Donald Trump, which had multiplied the gestures with regard to Israel and its prime minister of the time, his "friend" Benjamin Netanyahu, had adopted a much more comprehensive position.

Back to Obama's doctrine

His Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had even changed the American doctrine in 2019, claiming that Washington no longer judged colonies as contrary to international law, a decision celebrated by Israel but denounced by the Palestinians.

He had become last November, after Donald Trump's defeat in the presidential election, the first leader of American diplomacy to go to a colony in occupied West Bank.

Israeli colonization had a sharp rise, under the pulse of "bibi" Netanyahu during the Trump era.

The Biden Government, officially opposed to colonization, was cautious in recent months, killing most of the time calling Israel and Palestinians to abstain from any "unilateral" measure capable of stirring tensions, included in colonization.

The Democrat team now seems to be closer to the position of the former President Barack Obama who, at the end of his term in 2016, had allowed the adoption of a historic resolution of the United Nations condemning Israeli colonies.

These colonies installed on the Palestinian territories occupied by Israel since 1967 are judged to be illegal by the United Nations, and a large part of the international community sees in them a major obstacle to peace.
