Anti-Semitic Imagery Has No Place in Our Discourse, Ros-Lehtinen Says


Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, released the following statement today regarding reports that Austrian politician Heinz-Christian Strache published an anti-Semitic caricature on his Facebook page depicting a banker (wearing cufflinks with the Star of David on them) benefiting from the financial crisis. Statement by Ros-Lehtinen:

"The recent dissemination of an anti-Semitic caricature by an Austrian politician is a stark reminder that the fight against anti-Semitism is far from over. While we have made significant strides in promoting religious tolerance and understanding, we cannot be lulled into a false sense of security regarding our success. We must remain vigilant to prevent anti-Semitic slurs and stereotypes from gaining any traction in the public consciousness. These offensive images and despicable comments have no place in our discourse."
