As anti-Semitic threats and violence against Jews grow in frequency and severity both domestically and internationally, Vice President Kamala Harris announced the Biden administration’s latest initiative this week: a National Strategy for Countering Islamophobia.
“Fighting hate is important for the whole country.” The first National Strategy for Combating Islamophobia is being announced today by @POTUS and me. Harris said in a post on X that this action is the most recent step in their fight against a rise in hate in America.” The post included a short video.
In the video, Harris talked about how President Biden and his administration were already enacting a National Strategy for Countering Anti-Semitism, something they revealed earlier this year. However, she didn’t say anything about how it was being put into action, which is strange since anti-Semitic assaults have become much more common since Hamas terrorists murdered over 1,400 Israelis, most of whom were civilians.
Harris instead talked about the danger of Islamophobia: “For years, Muslims in America as well as individuals thought to be Muslim have been the target of an unfair number of hate crimes. Because of the Hamas terrorist attack in Israel and the ongoing humanitarian catastrophe in Gaza, there have been more anti-Palestinian, anti-Arab, anti-Semitic, as well as Islamophobic occurrences in the United States. For example, a Muslim Palestinian-American woman was beaten up and her 6-year-old son was killed.”
Some people didn’t like when the news came out, especially since anti-Semitic events on college campuses hit a new high when Jewish students at the University of Cornell were given death threats and had to hide in a secured library at NY City’s Cooper Union.
Stephen Miller stated, “Jews are being locked in libraries and urged to hide in attics.”
“Antisemitism has started to rise to levels we have not seen since before WWII,” Frank Fleming said. “Kamala Harris has come to our aid.”
“After genocidal maniacs killed a lot of Jews and college campuses were shown to be packed with antisemites demonstrating and harassing Jews, Democrats have discovered the real issue: too many people don’t like Islam,” said another poster.
“Hate crimes against Jews are on an upward trend like it’s the 1930s. And it’s Biden’s move.” stated Jason Butrill.
