In [a statement from US President Joe Biden]some veiled criticism of Israel but nothing directly.

Biden said he spoke to Jose Andres [founder of World Central Kitchen] today and he expressed his condolences.

He also talks about how Israel has pledged to conduct an investigation into the incident. He said that investigation must be swift. It must bring accountability and its findings must be made public.

We know that the Israelis have conducted investigations into this sort of thing before. We have seen that at Al Jazeera with the death of Shireen Abu Akleh where there was an investigation and the Israelis admitted they were at fault but no one was held accountable for that.

So it is clear that Joe Biden is expressing a degree of anger at what has happened but, as I say, no direct condemnation of Israel.

And that is interesting because there are more presidential primaries being held today in the United States and in a number of states, activists have been insistent that people spoil their ballot forms as a mark of protest to Joe Biden for not doing more to urge for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza.
