To the shock of millions of Americans, the Hamas attack on Israel has led to a wave of anti-Semitism in America. Progressives have joined Palestinians to protest Israel across the country.
This has gone beyond slandering the Jewish nation. There has been a sharp rise in anti-Semitic attacks against Jewish people in the United States.
Synagogues are on high alert as law enforcement issue warnings. Pro-Palestinian protests sweep through major cities, calling for the eradication of Israel. And as this violence continues to grow, President Biden appointed Kamala Harris to battle… islamophobia.
From The Post Millennial:
Harris posted a video on X and wrote, “Taking on hate is a national priority. Today, @POTUS and I are announcing the country’s first National Strategy to Counter Islamophobia. This action is the latest step forward in our work to combat a surge of hate in America.”
In one of the most tone-deaf decisions by the Biden administration, Kamala Harris has launched the “National Strategy to Counter Islamophobia.” The vice president with some of worst approval numbers in history claimed this was to “combat a surge of hate in America.”
According to nearly all reports, the latest surge of hate in America is against Jewish Americans, not Muslims. There have been seemingly few reports of actions taken against Muslim people. Instead, Jewish Americans are being told not to let their neighbors know they are Jewish.
College universities have condemned Israel and seemingly ignored the murderous actions of Hamas. Jewish homes and community centers have been vandalized by graffiti. Despite this, Harris is prioritizing protecting Muslims.
This move quickly sparked outrage among many Americans.
From Daily Wire:
Harris was widely mocked and criticized online over the announcement…
Professor Gad Saad posted: “According to the @FBI director, Jews make up 2.4% of the US population but are the targets of 60% of hate crimes. This is why it is apparently important to fight Islamophobia according to the White House.” …
Former U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman posted: “Can you guys do anything that isn’t driven solely by naked political strategy?”
Today, a wall in a large Jewish community in Las Vegas was tagged with “Death 2 Jews”
This is just one example of many hateful acts of antisemitism we’ve seen across the country.

Vice President Harris was mocked and criticized over her move to defend Muslims in the wake of an explosion of hate towards Jewish people. There appears to be no movement by the Biden administration to defend Jewish communities or protect Jewish Americans.
Yet Harris will most likely expend federal dollars on a “national strategy” to protect Muslims. Over the last few weeks, Muslims have been free to protest, rally, march, and even tear down pictures of Israeli victims. They have been safe to do all of this.
Yet Jewish people are in fear for their lives. This shocking move by the administration will further drive a rift within the Democratic Party–alienating Jews and those who support them from progressive anti-Semites.
- Kamala Harris announced a “National Strategy to Counter Islamophobia” in the wake of increased hate towards Jewish people.
- Progressives and Palestinians have attacked Israel and Jewish Americans in the aftermath of the October 7th attack.
- The Biden administration has apparently done nothing to protect Jewish Americans from rising anti-Semitism.
