Responding to Rising Tide of anti-Semitism and Islamophobia
NESRI stands against anti-Semitism and Islamophobia, two sides of the same white nationalist coin. We condemn last weekend’s attack against the Jewish community in Poway, California, and the continued threats against Representative Ilhan Omar. We stand united against the atmosphere of hate fanned by media outlets and political leaders. We call for collective public solutions. We stand with those under attack as they mourn and rebuild.
As we have written previously, “In these perilous times in our country, we must respond with love, unity, and solidarity and not only resist the hatred but insist on a different future where anti-Semitism is firmly and finally relegated to the dustbin of a tragic history, and our Jewish communities can live in peace and safety.”
