Antisemitism, the oldest hatred, is thriving in the United States, as evidenced by last weekend’s hostage crisis at the Congregation Beth Israel synagogue in Texas.

It’s still terrorizing Jewish communities and serving as the gateway to inspiring violent extremists, both here and abroad, who in turn use it to harm marginalized communities.

As such, a multi-racial and multi-faith coalition must recognize and combat antisemitism to protect both our Jewish neighbors and our fragile democracy.

Last weekend’s harrowing incident also reminded us that antisemitism is as stupid as it is dangerous. Forty-four-year-old British citizen Malik Faisal Akram held Jewish worshippers hostage last Saturday for more than eleven hours and demanded the release of Aafia Siddiqui, a Pakistani Muslim national, currently serving an 86-year sentence at a Texas facility for the attempted murder and armed assault of U.S. officers in Afghanistan.

Akram flew to New York last month from England, stayed at a homeless shelter, eventually made his way to Texas, and then decided to pick the closest synagogue he could find to Siddiqui’s facility. He is not related to Siddiqui nor does he have any association with those who are advocating for her case or her legal team.

The Congregation Beth Israel synagogue has no involvement whatsoever in her case or conviction. Read more.
