Statement: Senator Kamlager’s Responds to the Recent Rise in Antisemitic Violence

SACRAMENTO, CA — Nearing close to the International Holocaust Remembrance Day, Senator Kamlager released the following statement around the rise of antisemitic violence in L.A. County and nationally: 

Statement from Senator Kamlager:

“The act of terrorism that occurred at a Jewish synagogue in Texas, and the spread of antisemitic flyers within Santa Monica schools, is emblematic of the antisemitism that is still alive in our nation and our state. So, know this: antisemitism will absolutely not be tolerated. 

 “It is my hope that the individuals or groups responsible for launching targeted hate crimes against the Jewish community will be prosecuted under the full extent of the law. And as we look further into the future, I am eager to see broad coalitions of support come together to root out the prejudice and violence that is sickening our social, political, and even educational systems. The only way to stop antisemitism is with sunlight, activism, and a staunch commitment to strike out hate when we see it.”
