US House Minority Whip Steny H. Hoyer (D-Maryland) joined fellow lawmakers in condemning violence against Israelis and anti-Semitism in Europe this week.

Hoyer supported two resolutions that condemn the recent violent attacks against Israelis and encourage the Obama administration to work with European countries to combat anti-Semitism on that continent.

"Terror against Israelis and anti-Semitic attacks around the world must not be met with silence from the international community, and the two resolutions the House passed this week reflect the need to speak out and make clear where our nation stands," Hoyer said on Tuesday.

"Much work remains in the fight to root out hatred against Jews in their ancient homeland or in their diaspora communities. Nothing can ever justify the murder of innocents or the spreading of fear among peaceful communities."

"I will continue supporting measures like those the House approved this week to make it unambiguously clear that a bipartisan majority in Congress stands united in solidarity with Israel and the Jewish people against violence, hatred, and terror," he said.
