Letter to the editor,

If the Biden administration is sincerely interested in investigating antisemitism, it simply has to look in the mirror…or to quote Atlanta’s favorite son, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.,”When people criticize Zionists, they mean Jews; you’re talking antisemitism.”

Samantha Power, Biden’s Administrator of USAID, said, “The United States should stop investing billions of dollars in servicing Israel’s military.” She also claims that while the Palestinian Authority is paying millions of dollars each year in the Pay for Slay program to murder Jews, as an entity it was “pressing for calm.”

Colin Kahl, Under Secretary of Defense, attempted unsuccessfully to omit from the 2012 Democratic platform that Jerusalem was the capital of Israel.

Uzra Zeya, Under Secretary of State for Civilian Security, Democracy and Human Rights, compiled “research” for a book claiming that “the Israel lobby,” had established a secret network of PACs to “subvert the American political process to take control of U.S.-Middle East policy.”

Wendy Sherman, Deputy Secretary of State, declared all Palestinian Arab suicide bombers, including the Passover Seder Park Hotel bomber in Netanya, to be “nagging disruptions.”

Reema Dodin, Deputy Director of the White House Office of Legislative Affairs, described the 9/11 attacks in which 3,000 innocent people were murdered, as an understandable Islamic response to U.S. support for Israel. Calls all Islamic suicide bombing “the last resort of a desperate people.”

Maher Bitar, Senior Director for Intelligence Programs at the National Security Council, moderated a Palestine Solidarity Conference that taught attendees how to demonize Israel.

Hady Amr, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Israel and Palestinian Affairs, declared “I was inspired by the Palestinian intifada,” in which thousands of Jews were murdered at Passover seders, restaurants, pizza parlors, discos, department stores, bus stations and on busses.

All the Biden administration must do is look in the mirror. Dr. King would understand.

Richard Sherman, Margate, Fla.
