(TheConservativeNews.org) – On November 7, Vice President Kamala Harris made remarks during the Never is Now summit by the Anti-Defamation League about anti-Semitic behavior. The vice president’s statement came just days before the 83rd anniversary of Kristallnacht, the anti-Jewish demonstrations Nazis carried out on November 9 and 10, 1938. Harris claims the Biden administration is taking action to end this kind of hate.
The vice president touched on how the amount of crime against American Jews has increased in recent years.
Vice President Harris cited a couple of events in which anti-Semites acted out against the Hebrew people. She insisted President Biden and his administration are fighting against antisemitism and all forms of hate.
The American Jewish Committee’s recent report indicates that 1 in 4 Jewish-Americans have fallen victim to antisemitism in the past year. Over half admitted to changing their behavior to avoid being victims of hate.
According to a White House official, the Biden administration has introduced America’s first-ever complete plan for fighting domestic terrorism. The official added that the president has taken steps to protect houses of worship more effectively, which are often targets of hate crimes. The White House official also pointed out that the Biden administration and Congress are working on effective ways to counter and reduce unwarranted acts of hate.
The real question that remains is whether the administration’s strategy will reduce crime and positively impact the Jewish-American community and others.
