Bennett on Charlottesville violence: US to condemn antisemitism

August 13, 2017 20:04

Minister of Education and Minister of Diaspora affairs Naftali Bennett told The Jerusalem Post on Sunday that "the leaders of the US must condemn and denounce the displays of antisemitism seen over the past few days," following recent events in Charlottesville, Virginia.

This was the first reaction by an Israeli politician to the clashes. He also stated that "the unhindered waving of Nazi flags and symbols in the US is not only offensive towards the Jewish Community and other minorities, it also disrespects the millions of American soldiers who sacrificed their lives in order to protect the US and entire world from the Nazis."
