US Justice Department holds summit on dealing with anti-semitism

The Justice Dept. held an important summit meeting on how to deal with the new spread of anti-semitism turning up lately:
The US Department of Justice hosted its first “Summit on Combating Anti-Semitism” on Monday, where US Attorney General William Barr opened the proceedings by calling Jew-hatred a “cancer.”

An invocation by Rabbi Meir Soloveitchik preceded Barr’s remarks. Soloveitchik quoted US President George Washington’s famous letter in 1790 to the Jews of Newport, R.I., which stated that “the Government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assis Oftance, requires only that they who live under its protection should demean themselves as good citizens in giving it on all occasions their effectual support.”

The event, attended by about 150 people, featured panels and speakers, including from the Trump administration, along with Barr, such as US Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen, US Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, US Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, FBI director Christopher Wray and Elan Carr, US Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism.

Additionally, Eric Dreiband, assistant attorney general in the DOJ’s civil-rights division; William Sweeny, assistant director in charge, FBI New York field office; and Jessie Liu, US Attorney, District of Columbia, were part of a panel to discuss their work and the need to report hate crimes, including against Jews.

Issues surrounding anti-Semitism included such hatred on and outside college campuses in the United States and abroad, as well as the synagogue shootings in Pittsburgh and Southern California within a period of six months.
It's good they're doing this. Some of the latest acts of anti-semitism have been committed by anti-Trump types, leftists who clearly see him as a scapegoat, and believe taking out their misplaced anger on Jews will solve everything. And it's got to be stopped. IMO, seeking new converts to Judaism could be one way of dealing with the problem, telling these anti-semites that if they think attacking innocents over peanuts is going to do away with what they hate so much, they're mistaken. In any event, there's a lot that needs to be done, and soon.
