Biden in Israel

Vice President Joe Biden today began a visit to Israel and the west Bank. Biden assured Israelis that Washington would close ranks against threat from a nuclear Iran.

"I can promise the Israeli people that we will confront, as allies, any security challenge it will face. A nuclear-armed Iran would constitute a threat not only to Israel -- it would also constitute a threat to the United States," Biden said in an interview with Israel’s largest circulation newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth.

Biden will meet Palestinian leaders in the West Bank on Wednesday.
