Everyone in the US deserves fair treatment. We need to apply equitable standards in Congress that take into account our national interest. Anti-Semitism has reared its ugly head in recent years. We need to stand up against anti-Semitism in Congress, in our community, in schools and on college campuses where students are fearful of being abused physically and verbally. There is a growing number of anti-Semitic voices in Congress that the Democratic party has failed to condemn. Several Democratic presidential front-runners have openly expressed an anti-Israel bias which doesn’t disguise the anti-Semitic sentiments within, with very little response or push-back from the party. Here in California, the recently proposed ethnic studies curriculum received strong criticism for containing anti-Semitic and anti-Israel rhetoric and propaganda. Israel is our strongest ally in the Middle East and deserves to be treated as such.
