White House: Hamas attack on Israel was the greatest manifestation of anti-Semitism since the Holocaust
The White House called the Hamas attacks on Israel the deadliest for Jews since the Holocaust. The US presidential administration has strongly opposed anti-Semitism.
A statement was made by White House spokesperson Karine Jean-Pierre. She emphasized that manifestations of anti-Semitism are unacceptable.
"When Jews are targeted because of their beliefs, their identity, when Israel is singled out because of hatred against Jews, this is anti-Semitism, and it is unacceptable. There is no place for anti-Semitism. Period," the White House representative emphasized.
Jean-Pierre assured that this is important to the President of the United States and the entire administration. She emphasized that the White House is consistent in its stance on anti-Semitism and called on everyone to contribute to the fight against this phenomenon.
"In the wake of the Hamas terrorist attacks in Israel, which were the deadliest for Jews since the Holocaust, the president has been consistent and clear: we must all do our part and stand firm against anti-Semitism," Jean-Pierre said.
The White House spokeswoman emphasized that there is no place for hatred in the United States, neither against Jews, nor against Muslims, nor anyone else.
