Knesset panel to discuss US anti-Semitism

Tomorrow the Knesset’s Immigration, Absorption and Diaspora Committee will address the uptick in anti-Semitic incidents in the US, the committee’s chairman, MK Avraham Neguise, announces.

He says the discussion will include officials in the Israeli government alongside representatives from the US embassy.

“The Israeli Knesset cannot sit silent when Jewish lives are in danger,” Neguise says in a statement. “The Jews of the United States need to know that the Knesset is at their side, closely and anxiously observing these incidents.”

He also praises President Trump for his “harsh condemnation” of anti-Semitism, and says he hopes law enforcement in the US will “swiftly” apprehend and prosecute any who “persecute the Jews.”
