Our Statement on Senator Chuck Schumer's Speech on Rising Antisemitism
“Senator Schumer's powerful speech calling on all Americans to reject a rising wave of antisemitic hate can only be the beginning. All New York leaders who take pride in our state's multiethnic, interfaith diversity must take a stand when one of our communities is threatened. And just like Senator Schumer did today, New York's leaders must forcefully denounce antisemitism in whatever form it may appear.”
Wall of Shame
After the worst massacre of Jews since the Holocaust, many of New York’s elected leaders stood up and held Hamas terrorists accountable for their heinous actions. It was the just and humane thing to do.
Unfortunately, not everyone could take that step. Some stayed silent, while others tried to straddle the fence and stand with both terrorists and the terrorized in equal measure. Some officials even went so far as to justify Hamas’ brutality. They have had plenty of time to do the right thing, but they have chosen not to.
Let them know: When you can’t take a stand against terror, you do not stand for New York!
