The U.S. Senate have introduced a bipartisan resolution addressing the rise of Antisemitism in Europe.
The measure calls on government officials to work with the European Union and European governments to stop the increase in Antisemitic acts by designating senior-level special envoys to combat and monitor anti-Semitism, enhancing national strategies by training law enforcement officers, and making sure relevant data are collected.
Sen. Robert Menendez, who authored the resolution said, ”
Seventy years after the liberation of Auschwitz, we are witnessing an alarming rise in anti-Semitic sentiment in Europe that must be condemned and addressed.” He called the attacks “a challenge not only to international stability and security, but to our shared morality as human beings.”
Abraham Foxman, national director of the Anti-Defamation League, said the resolution “will show the world that violence and hatred will not be tolerated.” He called on the Senate to pass the resolution so that “leaders across Europe will heed this call and agree to come together and work with the United States to push back against the rising tide of anti-Semitism.”
