After anti-Semitic incidents, Herzog says to prepare for immigration from US

Opposition leader Isaac Herzog calls on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to establish an “emergency national program” to prepare for a “mass wave of Jewish immigration” following a series of anti-Semitic incidents in the United States.

“I wish to express my shock and vociferous condemnation of the outbreak of anti-Semitic incidents in the United States, France and other places around the world,” Herzog tells his Zionist Union faction meeting.

Yesterday, dozens of headstones were found toppled at a Jewish cemetery in Philadelphia, after a similar incident last week in which over 150 graves were damaged at a Jewish cemetery near St. Louis.

“I call on the government to urgently prepare and establish an emergency national program to enable a wave of Jewish immigration for our brethren,” he says.

“I am sure that the US government will do all it can to put an end to this phenomenon with all its might,” he adds.
