Biden Condemns Palestinian Violence in Implicit Rebuke to Abbas

JERUSALEM — Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. strongly condemned the recent wave of Palestinian terrorist attacks on Wednesday — including one that killed an American graduate student a day earlier — and censured leaders who failed to condemn them, in an implied but unusually stinging criticism of Mahmoud Abbas, the president of the Palestinian Authority.

“Let me say in no uncertain terms: The United States of America condemns these attacks and condemns the failure to condemn these attacks,” Mr. Biden told reporters before meeting here with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel.
