US President Joe Biden's staff on Friday morning removed the Israeli flag from his armored vehicle, before visiting Jerusalem's Arab areas.
Danny Danon, head of World Likud and a former Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations, slammed, "It starts with a visit of a US President to a Palestinian institution in east Jerusalem. It continues with the inability of [Prime Minister Yair] Lapid to set a red line, to act as a diplomat and prevent this dangerous precedent. And it ends with the removal of the Israeli flag from Biden's entourage - in the capital of the State of Israel."
"Lapid gets a clear and unequivocal 'fail' on this visit, and it's scary to think what future visits here by diplomats will look, in the coming months. We must replace this awful government."
Friday marks Biden's last day in Israel: At 3:25p.m., Biden is scheduled to take off from Israel for Saudi Arabia.
Earlier on Friday, Biden visited the Augusta Victoria Hospital, and then met in Bethlehem with Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas, after which the two delivered statements.
Following his arrival in Saudi Arabia, Biden is expected to meet with the Saudi Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman, on Friday night.
