Joe Biden was in Jaffa yesterday, only blocks from the horrific terror stabbings that left an American student dead and more than a dozen others injured. JNS reports on the Vice President's response condemning the attacks:

Upon arriving in Israel on Tuesday, U.S. Vice President Joseph Biden swiftly condemned the Palestinian terror attack that killed a visiting American business school student and wounded 11 Israelis in the port city of Jaffa...

Around the same time that Biden arrived at the Peres Center, the Palestinian terrorist carried out the Jaffa attack just down the road. Biden told reporters at the Peres Center, “We have absolute, total, unvarnished commitment to the security of Israel. I hope we can make some progress.”

Biden’s office later added that during his meeting with Peres, the vice president “condemned in the strongest possible terms the brutal attack” in Jaffa.

“He expressed his sorrow at the tragic loss of American life and offered his condolences to the family of the American citizen murdered in the attack, as well as his wishes for a full and quick recovery for the wounded,” Biden’s office said.
