Republican Jewish Coalition Condemns Anti-Semitism Toward Journalists

posted on May 25, 2016

The New York Times‘ Maggie Haberman reports, “The Republican Jewish Coalition, a group heavily financed by the casino magnate Sheldon Adelson, on Tuesday condemned what it called a rising tide of anti-Semitic invective against journalists covering the presidential race.” Jewish writers have have been the subject of abuse on social media, particularly those critical of Donald Trump. “We abhor any abuse of journalists, commentators and writers whether it be from Sanders, Clinton or Trump supporters,” the statement read. “There is no room for any of this in any campaign. Journalists, regardless of their race, religion or ethnicity should be free to do their jobs without suffering abuses, anti-Semitic or otherwise.”
