Statement on DeSean Jackson: The anti-Semitic comments displayed by DeSean Jackson on his instagram are deeply offensive and disturbing. These words have been used for centuries to support the vilification and extermination of Jews. As a representative of our city, we call on DeSean Jackson to stop spreading hate and bigotry and to become better educated about anti-Semitism.

As tweets from Rep. Ilhan Omar stir up the debate among Democrats as to whether she was using anti-Semitic language, members of the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia discuss what is anti-Jewish hate speech.

House speaker Nancy Pelosi denied that Rep. Ilhan Omar’s tweets came from a place of anti-Semitism.
