Washington, DC | www.adc.org | October 29, 2018 | The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) offers its sincerest condolences to the families of the victims of the tragic massacre at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburg, PA, this past Saturday, and strongly condemns the hatefully-motivated attack. The murder of the innocent worshippers during morning services shocks the conscience and is a reminder that if left unchecked, white nationalism will continue to spread deadly violence across America.
ADC calls on the Trump administration to immediately disavow white nationalism/supremacy, and to stop the assault and targeting of immigrants and refugees. The administration of Donald Trump has provided an opportunity for the ideology of hate to fester into the open, and as a result we have seen a wave of violence targeting minority communities. White nationalism and supremacy threatens the safety of minority communities across the country. It is the duty of our elected officials, including the President, to stand up against this ideology and demonstrate that such hate crimes will not be forgotten.
ADC stands against all hate crimes and pledges to continue fighting them. ADC denounces hate in all its forms, and will continue working with all communities, including the Jewish community, to combat the hate and discrimination that affects us all.
