This is the January 15, 2020 hearing "Confronting the Rise in Anti-Semitic Domestic Terrorism" held before the House Subcommittee on Intelligence and Counterterrorism of the Committee on Homeland Security. From the opening statement of Max Rose: "Over 100 years ago, my great grandfather came to New York City fleeing anti-Semitism, and he came to New York City and he came to America because this country is not just a country. It stands for something. It has been a beacon that if you are fleeing hate, it has been a beacon for freedom. Today we consider how can we ensure that our best days are not in our rearview mirror. We look forward to considering everything from appointing Federal officials, FBI, DHS Task Force. How do we regulate social media? How do we increase funding to make sure that no person is afraid to pray, whether at a church, a synagogue, a mosque? Today we consider the rise of anti-Semitism across the political spectrum because we realize this is not a problem for any political party, and this is not certainly something that we should subject to the hyper-partisanship and divisiveness that has taken over this town." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Jonathan Greenblatt, Nathan Diament, Clifford D. May, Eugene Kontorovich, John J. Miller, John R. Allen, and Paul Goldenberg.
