Joe Biden: ‘Indifference is silence and silence is consent’

US Vice President Joseph R. Biden was honored by the World Jewish Congress in New York for his contribution to the well-being of Israel and the Jewish people. In his speech accepting the WJC’s Theodor Herzl Award, Biden spoke of his life-long dedication to protecting Jews and Israel and said: “I am a Zionist, and you need not be a Jew to be a Zionist.” He also reassured the audience that there would be "no diminution of support" of the United States for Israel under a Trump administration.
