Will the killing of Shireen Abu Akleh have the same effect on US-Israel relations as the Jamal Khashoggi killing on US-Saudi relations? The US ruling class appears to be fragmenting into a European-oriented faction (Blue Tribe elites) and a Gulf States/Israel-oriented faction (Red Tribe elites).

President Biden is calling for an investigation of baton-wielding Israeli police who charged into the funeral procession for American Al Jazeera reporter Shireen Abu Akleh — after departing White House press secretary Jen Psaki called the incident “deeply disturbing.”
Israeli authorities said they rushed into the Jerusalem crowd — nearly causing Abu Akleh’s coffin to fall to the ground — after Palestinians threw rocks. The incident occurred just before a closed-door meeting at the White House between Biden and Jordanian King Abdullah II.
“We have all seen those images. They’re obviously deeply disturbing,” Psaki said at her final briefing before handing over the reins to incoming press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre.
“We believe this is a day where we should all be marking, including everyone there, the memory of a remarkable journalist who lost her life.”
