US President Joe Biden cautioned Israelis not to be blinded by rage after suffering their deadliest ever attack, warning that the United States made mistakes after September 11.
"I caution this while you feel that rage, don't be consumed by it. After 9/11, we were enraged in the United States. While we sought justice and got justice we also made mistakes," Biden said on a visit to Tel Aviv.
US President Biden renewed his commitment on an elusive goal of creating a Palestinian state even as he offered robust support to Israel after the October 7 attacks.
"As hard as it is, we must keep pursuing peace, we must keep pursuing a path so that Israel and the Palestinian people can both live safely in security and dignity and in peace," said Biden.
"For me, that means a two-state solution," he said as he closed a solidarity visit to Israel.
