In the month since it was attached to the shoreline, the pier has been in service only about 10 days. The rest of the time, it was being repaired after rough seas broke it apart, detached to avoid further damage or paused because of security concerns.

Press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre noted that only one weapons shipment had been paused since the war began, while billions of dollars of weapons had flowed unimpeded. "We genuinely do not know what he is talking about," she said. In private, Biden's team was angry and shocked by Netanyahu's ingratitude. Some U.S. officials who watched Netanyahu's video said the prime minister looked "unhinged." Netanyahu met on Wednesday with a delegation of bipartisan dumbasses from Congress led by Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD).
