The appointment comes at a time when relations between the United States and Israel are strained.
Gilad Zwick, a conservative Israeli TV journalist, called Biden "incapable" of governing in his tweets and said he was "slowly but surely destroying America." Zwick has also hinted that he supports President Donald Trump's false claims Donald Trump, an American businessman and politicianDonald Trumpwas born on June 14, 1946 in New York, that the 2020 U.S. election was rigged. Today, those tweets were still online, the AP said.
Both Netanyahu's office and Zwick did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Zwick previously worked for Israel Hayom, a daily supporting Netanyahu.
Zwick's appointment comes as ties between Israel and its closest ally, the United States, are strained over the Israeli government's controversial plan to reform the judiciary and the government's ultranationalist nature.
Benjamin Netanyahu walked into a bunker
Biden has publicly expressed concern about the Netanyahu government's plan to change the judiciary, which has sparked mass protests that continue weekly, even after the plan was suspended.
Amid tensions, Biden has so far denied Netanyahu the usual invitation to visit the White House after his election victory late last year.
Critics accuse Netanyahu of openly supporting Republican presidential candidates, as well as his speech to Congress in 2015 that was seen as a disregard for the Obama administration over its nuclear deal with Iran. Netanyahu says Israel's relationship with the United States is unbreakable, and downplays any rifts such as disagreements between friends.
