Remarks by President Biden on the terrorist attacks in Israel:
“THE PRESIDENT: Good afternoon. You know, there are moments in this life—and I mean this literally—when the pure, unadulterated evil is unleashed on this world. The people of Israel lived through one such moment this weekend. The bloody hands of the terrorist organization Hamas—a group whose stated purpose for being is to kill Jews. This was an act of sheer evil.”
Our thoughts are with #Israel and the children and families experiencing terror, anguish, and loss of their loved ones at this time of conflict and instability. We echo @Pontifex’s call in praying for peace.

The ruthless attacks by Hamas against the people of Israel are horrific, unprecedented and wrong.
I strongly condemn these acts of terrorism and continue to pray for the families, children, elders and communities targeted by this hate.

What has unfolded overnight in #Israel is both unspeakable and unconscionable. We cannot stand by and be silent while acts of terrorism and hatred are taking innocent Israeli lives and tearing families apart. We must all stand in solidarity with Israel and its people.

The scale and cruelty of attacks on Israeli civilians are hard to comprehend. We’ve seen atrocities that shock the soul. They are an affront to humanity itself.
I join people across Massachusetts, across America, and all over the world in condemning these indefensible attacks. pic.twitter.com/qUxNjc9JuG

The Hamas terrorist attacks against Israel were nothing short of an unprovoked attack on the Israeli people and Israeli sovereignty. Israel has a right to defend itself, and the US stands firmly with our ally. My condolences to the families grieving from this violence.

I stand firmly with Israel and unequivocally affirm its right to defend itself and its people.
I am confident @POTUS will act with purpose to assist the Israeli government, and I urge the Administration to move quickly.

These devastating attacks on Israelis are deeply alarming and my heart breaks for the victims & their loved ones.
We need an immediate ceasefire & de-escalation.

I am praying for the innocent Israelis & Palestinians who have been caught in the crossfire. May peace prevail.

I condemn this heinous attack on Israel, and am deeply saddened by the tragic loss of civilian life. We must do everything in our power to deescalate violence, engage diplomacy, and avert bloodshed. A war between Israel and Palestine would be catastrophic.
