Recently, President Joe Biden spoke out strongly against the numerous anti-Semitic incidents in the United States during the last two weeks, which coincided with the deadly conflict between Israel and Hamas. He also surprised many Israelis with his steadfast support for Israel’s right to defend itself against Hamas’s rocket attacks.
Just last week, Biden, along with First Lady Jill, issued a video statement from the White House in which he said he would defend religious freedom:
“All people should be able to practice their faith with dignity, without fear of harassment or violence. We will defend the right of all, as we stand with you. That’s why I ended this shameful Muslim travel ban.”
