People familiar with the matter say the White House is fearful that Israel is getting in over its head, urging the nation to think beyond just the immediate goal of clearing out Gaza and annexing it as new Israeli territory.
Biden's team has apparently voiced anxiety about Israel's demand that the more than one million residents of northern Gaza evacuate in 24 hours, a deadline that both the European Union (EU) and the United Nations (UN) say is impossible.
National Security Council spokesman John Kirby expressed much the same, stating that Israel's evacuation order for Gaza is "a tall order."
"The desire to support Israel versus the fear about what might come next underscores the delicate balancing act Biden faces," Bloomberg reports.
"A punishing campaign in Gaza and no clear endpoint risks fanning Israel's worst crisis in 50 years in to a regional conflagration the U.S. and its allies would struggle to contain."

Apparently hung up on that out-of-context "I will bless those who bless you, and curse those who curse you" verse, Biden and his regime say they will still support Israel regardless of how it proceeds.
Since Israeli officials are calling the recent Hamas attack their own 9/11 – complete with stand-down orders as well – the show must go on.
According to Israeli President Isaac Herzog, all 2.3 million residents of Gaza are either terrorists or harboring terrorists, which is why Israel has to take back Gaza, he insists.
"They could have fought against that evil regime which took over Gaza in a coup d'état," Herzog stated publicly about the only way innocent Palestinians could have vindicated themselves, in his opinion.
Already, more Palestinians, around 1,500, have been killed by Israel since the Hamas attack that killed 1,200 Israelis.
Biden aides have made it a point to avoid questioning Israel in any way concerning its bloodlust for immediate, full-scale war. Still, they worry that Israel could be making a seriously grave error that will result in global consequences.
On Friday, Biden himself urged Israel not to "lose sight of the fact that the overwhelming majority of Palestinians had nothing to do with Hamas," which on this matter he is actually correct.
Secretary of State Antony Blinken, meanwhile, is touring the Middle East in an attempt to keep the Israeli war against Palestine from spreading. Like Biden, Blinken is urging Israel to behave more cautiously to ensure the violence does not spread.
"They need a strategic plan for Gaza and it's obvious that the plan that they've been executing, essentially over the last several years, hasn't worked," commented Seth Moulton, a Massachusetts Democrat and member of the House Armed Services Committee who served four tours as a marine in Iraq.
What Israel needs, Moulton went on to say, is a "long-term strategy for Gaza that will be more effective than whatever they've been doing for the last 15 years."
If Israel does proceed with its planned ground invasion, which it is now claiming may end up being a surprise attack through other means, then Hezbollah up to the north says it is ready to act against Israel with the support and sponsorship of Iran.
