President Joe Biden came out on Monday to condemn the recent attacks on Jewish communities in the United States and abroad.

“The recent attacks on the Jewish community are despicable, and they must stop,” Biden wrote on Twitter. “I condemn this hateful behavior at home and abroad- it’s up to all of us to give hate no safe harbor.”

The antisemitic attacks have coincided with tensions in the Middle East between Israel and Hamas. Many Jews have been attacked by pro-Palestinian protestors while attending pro-Israel rallies in recent days.

Last Thursday, a Jewish man in New York City was beaten by a mob of the supporters of the “Free Palestine” movement who allegedly made antisemitic statements, punched, kicked, pepper-sprayed, and hit him with crutches. The victim was later hospitalized.

Across the globe, there have been similar attacks on Jews recently. In the United Kingdom, for example, antisemitic incidents have reportedly increased by 500%.

Biden didn’t immediately respond to the attacks. For days he kept silent and faced mounting pressure from advocacy organizations like the Orthodox Union, the Anti-Defamation League, the Jewish Federations of North America, the American Jewish Committee, and Hadassah.

Islamic Jihad shows off ‘tunnel city’ for next attack on Israel

Mohammed Raad, the head of the Hezbollah parliamentary bloc in the Lebanese parliament asked for a mere $9 billion to destroy Israel completely. “The resistance only needs $9 billion and there will be nothing left called Israel in the region” he said over the weekend.

Meanwhile, another terrorist organization shows how they too are planning to obliterate the state of Israel. Islamic Jihad gave a media tour in Gaza, where the terror group touted its offensive and defensive tunnel systems.

“In a ‘tunnel city’ under the sandy soils of southern Gaza, Palestinian terrorists are preparing for the next conflict with Israel, as tensions in Jerusalem threaten to escalate” reports the Times of Israel.

The underground tunnels “leave no trace on the surface” and entrances are “discreetly tucked into the foot of a small hill.” The tunnels are also “complete with electric lights, a ventilation system and telecoms cables, the tunnels also have small rooms for storing weapons and ammunition.”

Abu Hamza, Al-Quds Brigade spokesman of Islamic Jihad said “the tunnels have been repaired and the rocket stocks have been replenished” since last year’s war. He also thanked Iran for its support for helping to rebuild and replace its weapons cache.

Another source who asked not to be named, said the terror group has “a large number of offensive tunnels that stretch deep into [Israel] and are linked up to a system of drones.” He also said the group’s rockets are capable of reaching the whole of Israel.

“The rockets are on high alert and we’re waiting for the leadership to decide” said a gunman sitting close to one of the tunnel entrances with a group of gunmen under the trees.

Times of Israel reports on the latest tensions:

Weeks of deadly violence including a series of Palestinian terror attacks in Israel, Palestinian riots and a police crackdown around Jerusalem’s Temple Mount/Al-Aqsa Mosque, and stepped up IDF operations in the West Bank have prompted Islamic Jihad to threaten an escalation.

After two deadly attacks in Tel Aviv and Bnai Brak, the IDF carried out large-scale raids in the West Bank, notably the Jenin area from which the terrorists hailed.

Those operations sparked intense firefights which killed several fighters from Islamic Jihad, which is supported by Israel’s nemesis Iran.

And on Monday evening, a rocket was fired from Gaza into Israel, prompting an Israeli airstrike against a weapons factory.

No faction has yet claimed responsibility, but the incident — the first of its type since January — heightened fears of a further escalation.
