Smith, Deutch, Lankford, Rosen statement condemning recent global surge in antisemitism

 

WASHINGTON, DC – Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ) and Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL), two founding co-chairs of the House Bipartisan Task Force for Combatting Antisemitism, and Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) and Sen. Jacky Rosen (D-NV), co-founders and co-chairs of the Senate Bipartisan Task Force for Combatting Antisemitism, issued the following statement condemning recent antisemitic incidents across the globe:

 

“As co-chairs of the bipartisan congressional task forces for combating antisemitism, we are alarmed and deeply concerned by the growing number of antisemitic incidents in the United States, Canada, and across Europe related to the current violence in the Middle East. These disturbing incidents include individuals in London calling for Jewish ‘daughters to be raped,’ a German synagogue being pelted with rocks, an attack on Jewish diners in Los Angeles, fireworks hurled at a crowd in New York City, and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s recent invocation of the blood libel myth—among far too many others. We call on elected officials, faith leaders, and civil society leaders to join us in speaking out against this antisemitic hate, now and always.”
