Congressman Rose: ‘As a Jewish American I am deeply alarmed to once more see fellow Jews targeted for murder in places they once considered safe’

Member of the U.S. House of Representatives
from New York’s 11th District.

WASHINGTON, DC — December 11, 2019 – Congressman Max Rose issued the following statement on the tragic attack in Jersey City yesterday:

“Yesterday’s attack was a tragedy, one more in a line of tragedies that occur all too often in America. As a Jewish American I am deeply alarmed to once more see fellow Jews targeted for murder in places they once considered safe. If not for the heroic sacrifice of Detective Seals and the quick intervention of law enforcement there is no telling how many more could’ve been killed. Public officials’ words matter and those who slyly flirt with anti-Semitic and anti-cop rhetoric or weaponize it for political gain are just as responsible as those who wear their hatred on their sleeve. Politicians from all corners and around the world must take a stand against racists and bigots, label them as such, and deny them access to weapons and ammunition with which to enact their terror. Until they do, we do not accept your empty thoughts and prayers.”
