United States: The recent gatherings in Dearborn, Michigan, reverberating with chants of “Death to America” and “Death to Israel,” are not only profoundly troubling but also signify a repugnant display of anti-American and anti-Semitic sentiment. These utterances not only endanger the safety and stability of both Americans and Israelis but also erode the core tenets of democracy, liberty, and acceptance.

The echoed cries of “Death to America” and “Death to Israel” transcend mere political disagreement; they are overt pleas for aggression and devastation against two nations deeply intertwined in friendship and alliance. These chants constitute a direct assault on the foundational principles of freedom and democracy cherished by both the United States and Israel.

It is disconcerting that these assemblies serve as platforms for propagating animosity and provoking violence against Israel, the sole democracy in the Middle East and a steadfast ally of the United States. Such exhibitions of anti-Semitic animus have no rightful place in a civilized society and warrant resolute condemnation from all individuals of moral conscience.

It needs to be mentioned that accusing the United States of the conduct of other nations after considering the reasons provided here or elsewhere is absurd and insensitive. The US has run an unyielding caucus to kindle US-Israel relations, and as a result, Israel has constantly had secure and robust diplomatic support during the turmoil it has faced as a stage of non-stop hostility and aggression from its adversaries.

Unlike the USA, however, the settlements are anything but reservations; instead, they are the anti-Semitic heart and soul of the country, which seeks to defame, dehumanize, and destroy the Jewish state and its people altogether. Because of that, all contributors to the good are called to walk with Israel side by side and leave behind the hateful words and deeds that are feeding ground for these congregations.

As for Israel, we must unequivocally condemn these events and remind them that we, for Israel, stand tall and will be there when the state needs us for Israel. Besides that, our authority should always be on the alert to denounce anti-Semitism, removing all its forms and leaving freedom, the principles of democracy, and tolerance to the top ones of all the scourges of intolerance, hatred, and bigotry.
