LETTER: Joe Biden against antisemitism

President Joe Biden hosted a Hanukkah reception at the White House recently (“Biden denounces antisemitism at Hanukkah reception,” Dec. 20 Review-Journal). I wonder if Rep. Ilhan Omar was invited. Addressing antisemitism, Mr. Biden said, “Silence is complicity” and, “I will not be silent. America will not be silent.”

I don’t recall Mr. Biden speaking out to condemn Rep. Omar’s antisemitic remark, “It’s all about the Benjamins, baby” as she accused Jews of buying influence in elections. Rep. Omar should have been removed from the House for her remarks. But, of course, she was not even censured.

If our president is so concerned about antisemitism, perhaps he should condemn that which is coming from his own political party.
