“You are not alone,” says US President Joe Biden in his remarks at the end of his half-day visit to Israel.

“Rape, beheadings, bodies burned alive. Hamas committed atrocities that recall the worst ravages of ISIS, unleashing pure, unadulterated evil upon the world” he says. “There’s no rationalizing it. No excusing it.”

Biden recalls the Holocaust and says the October 7 onslaught brought up the scars of that genocide.

“The world watched then. It knew. And the world did nothing. We will not stand by and do nothing again. Not today, not tomorrow, not ever.” he pledges.

Biden assures families of missing and hostages that they are not alone.

“For me as the American president, there’s no higher priority than the release and safe return of all these hostages.”
