Representative Jared Moskowitz (D-FL) appeared on CNN to discuss the prevalent antisemitism in the United States as Israel and Hamas (elected by Palestinians) have entered a bloody war.
From the streets of America’s bustling cities to the campuses of higher education (including Rep. Moskowitz’s alma mater, George Washington University), and even the avenues of Ft. Lauderdale, pro-Palestine and antisemitic demonstrations have taken the nation by storm.
Rep. Moskowitz provided his comments, calling it “concerning.”
As a child, when my grandmother told me stories about the Holocaust, I would think that there’s no way those horrors could happen ever again today. Yet, the surge in antisemitic propaganda we are seeing now evokes haunting thoughts of that terrible period. pic.twitter.com/YagGQKZjKf

The Florida congressman continued, “My grandmother, who was a Holocaust survivor, as a child told me stories, you go to the museums, you think to yourself: there’s no way that this could happen again, how could people so blindly hate a religion and people that they don’t even know? And then you see this. And you realize that what happens is that when there’s so much propaganda out there and it’s fed to people by the algorithms all day long on social media. You can see why this is fomenting, and all around the world again, it’s really scary.”
Antisemitism is antisemitism, no matter which party it comes from. To be silent is to be complicit in this rising hatred. pic.twitter.com/Bpfi0fJpRL

“At GW (George Washington University) last night, my alma mater, ‘Glory to the martyrs,’ glory to the people that raped women. That killed babies in their cribs. ‘Glory to those people.’ Both parties are failing because you know what? Each of them have no problem calling out antisemitism when the other side does it. The Republicans will call out the ‘Squad,’ Democrats will call out Republican members when they say Jews and space lasers.”
The Israeli-Hamas conflict has entered its fourth week.
