Rep. Nadler, Roskam Introduce Resolution Condemning Growing Anti-Semitism Abroad


nadlerToday, Congressman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) and Congressman Peter Roskam (R-IL) introduced a Congressional resolution condemning growing anti-Semitism abroad.

“We must unequivocally condemn all forms of anti-Semitism and reject attempts to justify anti-Semitic hatred or violent attacks as an acceptable expression of frustration with political events in the Middle East or anywhere else,” said Congressman Nadler. “Already in 2014 alone, in Jewish communities across the world, we have seen increased incidents of murder at Jewish sites, violent attacks and death threats against Jews, as well as gun violence, arson, graffiti, and other property desecration at Jewish places of worship. We must condemn these acts in the strongest possible terms and do all that we can to prevent the spread of anti-Semitism.”

“With clear evidence of increasing incidents and expressions of anti-Semitism throughout the world, it is important that we speak out against this hatred. The United States must continue to play an essential role in shining a spotlight on the ugly resurgence of anti-Semitism, as well as all forms of religious discrimination,” said Congressman Roskam.

“I commend Representatives Nadler and Roskam and their colleagues in the House for amplifying a call we hope the world will hear: that Jews should be able to live securely and with dignity, regardless of what happens in the Middle East. Parliamentarians around the world should follow their important lead and demonstrate the will to ensure anti-Semitism has no place in their country and that Jews have the right to live free of harassment and the fear of violence solely because they are Jewish,” said Abraham H. Foxman, National Director of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL).

  1. Beyond pointless, its actually damaging. How about instead of complaining you talk to Jews about community safety, getting oneself and one’s family protected including having guns and having some pride instead of relying on others and being whiny about it? Complaining actually created and helps much more anti-Semitism (Jew-hatred).
