This is the March 22, 2017 hearing titled, "Anti-Semitism Across Borders," held before the U.S. House of Representatives Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, Global Human Rights, and International Organizations of the Committee on Foreign Affairs. From the opening statement of Christopher H. Smith, U.S. Representative from New Jersey's 4th Congressional District and Chairman of the Subcommittee: "The Jewish people have survived and thrived from the times of biblical antiquity to the present day--quite a feat when you consider all of the civilizations that have come and gone: The Hittites, the Assyrians, the Egyptians, Persians, Greece, and Rome. The presence of Jews has enriched the cultures of many civilizations and countries, from the Americas, to Ethiopia, to China. But just as the Jewish people have endured, so too, has anti-Semite hatred. This hatred has ranged from prejudiced slurs whispered in private to the murder of more than 6 million Jews in the Holocaust. Seventy-two years after the Holocaust ended, anti-Semites continue to target the Jewish people for discrimination, destruction of property, and even death. This hearing will explore global threats to Jewish communities, the underlying ideologies, and what actions the United States and other countries and international organizations should take." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Paul Goldenberg, Stacy Burdett, Andrew Baker, and Mark Weitzman.
