Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations, Gilad Erdan, stated on Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” program that “at any second we could witness a terrorist assault in opposition to a Jewish neighborhood right here in the US.”
Broadcaster Dana Bash stated: “I do know you noticed that there’s an Israeli official who warned Israelis in opposition to touring overseas, and in the event that they do, please don’t present outward indicators of Israeli or Jewish identification. There was an alarming rise in anti-Semitism, not solely in the US however around the globe. As Ambassador to the United Nations, what are you doing to fight this?
“I feel the state of affairs now’s stunning,” Erdan stated. We’re on the point of catastrophe, even right here in the US. We now see 1000’s of individuals chanting: “Loss of life to Israel, loss of life to the Jews.” We see Jewish college students everywhere in the United States on school campuses who’re threatened not solely by different college students, however by their professors and college presidents who can’t even condemn terrorist assaults.
He added: “So, I feel it is already too late to say that we anticipate them to talk out or assault anti-Semitism. We anticipate them to take motion. We anticipate them to expel college students and hearth anti-Semitic professors. We anticipate them to name the police to analyze harassment of Jewish college students.” “That is actually unacceptable, that is the state of affairs proper now. And as I stated, we’re on the point of catastrophe. At any second, we may see a terrorist assault in opposition to the Jewish neighborhood right here in the US.”
