  • 6 months ago
President Biden met with American Jewish leaders at the White House to discuss the deadly Hamas attack in Israel last weekend. He called it "the deadliest day for Jews since the Holocaust." Biden vowed to keep working to bring home US hostages being held by Hamas in Israel, though he did not provide specifics so as not to jeopardize efforts to free them. Officials estimate less than a handful of Americans are being held hostage. Biden expressed solidarity with the Jewish community and said silence in the face of such attacks would be complicity. He has deployed experts to Israel to advise on hostage recovery efforts.
