Jake Sullivan, President Joe Biden’s national security adviser, argued over the weekend that it was more important now to create a Palestinian state than before Palestinian terrorists with Hamas murdered 1,200 Israelis during their unprecedented terrorist attack.

The remarks from Sullivan, made during a Sunday interview on ABC News’ “This Week” with host George Stephanopoulos, come after top Israeli officials have warned that the creation of a Palestinian state would threaten the very existence of the state of Israel.

“The U.S. position on this is very straightforward,” Sullivan said. “The only long-term answer to peace in the region, to Israel’s security in the region, is a two-state solution, with Israel’s security guaranteed. A Palestinian state that also has security guarantees for Israel. That’s what we’re going to keep working for.”

“We were doing that before October 7th,” he continued. “I think since October 7th the need to work on that has only increased and we would like to deliver an outcome over time that has alluded administrations of both parties for decades that is in the best interests, we believe, of everyone in the region and in the wider world.”

On October 7, 2023, thousands of terrorists from Hamas and other Palestinian civilians stormed into Israel during a surprise attack that was years in the planning. In addition to murdering 1,200 Israelis on that day, more than 5,000 were injured and hundreds were taken hostage.
