Since the start of renewed open hostilities between Israel and Hamas there have been many incidents of anti-Jewish violence in the United States. Incidents have occurred across the country, from New York City, to Los Angeles, to Florida, and in many places in between.
In response to these incidents of hate, HAF Managing Director Samir Kalra stated:
“Whatever one thinks about the actions of the Government of Israel or Hamas in the past few weeks, and whatever one thinks is the best solution to the Israeli-Palestian conflict, interpersonal violence is never an acceptable response. No just solution to this decades-long conflict will result from attacking each other on the streets of America’s cities. Rather, such incidents only inflame tensions on both sides, entrenching positions, while making effective dialog all the more difficult.”
