Biden, in Israel, Hits Notes of Loyalty, Emotion, and Caution

From a Washington Post analysis by Matt Viser headlined “Biden, in Israel, hits notes of loyalty, emotion, and caution”:

In an emotional speech carried live across Israel and around the world, President Biden sought to embody America’s ties to the Jewish state with his own presence, channeling empathy, anger, profound loss and bracing optimism.

He reached deep into history, recounting the timelessness of Moses and lessons from the Torah, and he referenced more recent events, noting how the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks triggered “shock, pain, rage — an all-consuming rage” among Americans.
