Joe Biden

( – In a new condemnation of the antisemitism espoused by many Democrats, President Joe Biden has declared that “we will never forget” in a solemn address commemorating the Holocaust during World War II, and comparing it to the October 7 terrorist attack in Israel by the Islamist terror group Hamas.

Biden emphasized the imperative of remembrance and vigilance against antisemitism as he invoked the recent atrocities committed by Hamas against Israel, underscoring the necessity of never forgetting such acts.

“Never again, simply translated for me means never forget. We must keep telling the story. We must keep teaching the truth. We must keep teaching our children and our grandchildren. The truth is we’re at risk of people not knowing the truth,” the president said.

“Here we are, not 75 years later, but just 7 ½ months later, and people are already forgetting. They’re already forgetting that Hamas unleashed this terror. I have not forgotten, nor have you. And we will not forget,” he added.

This statement came as a part of his broader support for Israel and Jewish communities, highlighted by his denunciation of recent antisemitic incidents and other forms of hatred in anti-Israel protests at U.S. college campuses.

Biden advocated for lawful and peaceful protests, emphasizing that disruption of campus property is against the principles of a lawful society, National Review reports.

“It’s against the law, and we’re not a lawless country. We’re a civil society. We uphold the rule of law, and no one should have to hide or be brave just to be themselves,” he commented on the targeting of Jews by pro-Palestinian groups.

The White House recently announced new measures to tackle antisemitism, especially in educational settings.

The Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights issued directives to schools nationwide to identify and address antisemitism and hate-based incidents that might necessitate federal civil rights investigations.

Meanwhile, the Department of Homeland Security is set to enhance campus safety and confront threats against Jews, and the State Department’s special envoy to monitor and combat antisemitism is tasked with working alongside tech companies to mitigate antisemitic content online.

Additionally, Biden affirmed the ongoing efforts to release hostages held by Hamas in Gaza.

“We are working around the clock to free the remaining 100 hostages. We will not rest until all hostages are brought home,” he said.
