President Trump's voiced his dismay
at the recent vandalism in Jewish cemetaries:
US President Donald Trump said Monday he was “disappointed and concerned” by ongoing incidents of anti-Semitism throughout the country, while Jewish groups demanded decisive action and two state governors said they had ordered concerted efforts to capture those responsible.
In the latest in a series of anti-Semitic incidents throughout the country, bomb threats were called in Monday to JCCs in North Carolina, Alabama, Pennsylvania, New York, Indiana, New Jersey and Delaware.
And on Sunday, hundreds of gravestones were toppled in at a Jewish cemetery in Philadelphia — days after similar vandalism occurred at a St. Louis, Missouri graveyard.
Speaking Monday, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said the president “continues to be deeply disappointed and concerned over reports of further vandalism at Jewish cemeteries.
“The cowardly destruction in Philadelphia this weekend comes on top of similar accounts from Missouri and threats against Jewish community centers,” he said.
It's very good that Trump's speaking out about these terrible acts, unlike Obama, who had little to say, if at all. While we're on the topic, Shmuley Boteach's come to Trump's defense
following the unfair/exaggerated accusations made against him. His courage to address a serious issue is admirable, and a positive step that'll hopefully help put a stop to whoever's committing the awful crimes, whether it be Islamofascists, which is quite possible, or another form of anti-semite.
