Washington, D.C. – Today, U.S. Rep. Ed Royce (R-CA), Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, issued the following statement on the House of Representatives unanimous passage of H. Res. 707, which condemns all forms of anti-Semitism and rejects attempts to justify anti-Jewish hatred or violent attacks.
Chairman Royce said: “The global rise in anti-Semitic violence is very troubling.  Jews throughout the world have been attacked on the street, synagogues have been bombed, cemeteries desecrated, Jewish groups have received hate mail, and anti-Semitic slogans have been spray-painted on buildings.  Political and religious leaders must resolutely condemn these attacks on Jewish communities and make clear they will not be tolerated.”
