Condemning Abbas’ silence, Biden says Israel and Arabs may find common cause on terror

WASHINGTON – Vice President Joseph Biden offered a forceful defense of Israel’s security posture at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) on Sunday night, delivering what is likely his last speech to the group after a 30-year career in public service drew him close to the pro-Israel organization.

The speech, before a record crowd of 18,000 in the capital’s Verizon Center Stadium, included several lines that drew standing ovations from the crowd– perhaps none more so than the vice president’s admonition of Palestinian leadership for its failure to condemn a months-long spate of stabbings, vehicular attacks and shootings of Israeli and American civilians by Palestinian militants.
