He criticized those who remain silent in the face of antisemitism and expressed his support for Israel.

“I got in trouble, got criticized very badly by the southern part of my state and some of the southern parts of the country, when 35 years ago I said, ‘You don’t have to be a Jew to be a Zionist. And I am a Zionist,'” recalled Biden.

“But we know this year’s Hanukkah is different,” he said, referring to the war.

Biden previously said, “Let me be clear: Hamas using rape, sexual violence and terrorism and torture of Israeli women and girls is appalling and unforgivable.”

“And I was there, saw some of the photographs, and it’s beyond comprehension,” he continued.

Adding, “We all have to condemn such brutality without equivocation and without exception.”

Biden said to the Jewish people in the audience, “I also recognize your hurt from the silence and the fear for your safety, because the scourge of antisemitism in the United States of America and around the world is sickening. You know, we see it across communities in schools and colleges and social media.”

Antisemitic incidents have increased during this period, and the president emphasized the need to condemn such hate.

Biden also highlighted the importance of protecting civilian lives and providing humanitarian assistance to innocent Palestinians, while condemning Hamas’ brutality.

He addressed the fear and hurt experienced by the Jewish community due to antisemitism in the U.S. and globally, also referencing recent controversies at universities regarding antisemitism.
