House Republican Leaders Condemn Anti-Semitic Hate Crimes
HARRISBURG – House Speaker Mike Turzai (R-Allegheny), House Majority Leader Dave Reed (R-Indiana) and House Appropriations Chairman Stan Saylor (R-York) issued the following statement in reaction to recent anti-Semitic crimes and threats in Pennsylvania:
“An attack on one religion is an attack on all religions, and the recent acts of hate and anti-Semitism occurring in the Commonwealth should outrage all Pennsylvanians. Threats, vandalism or attacks on the Jewish community – and all communities of faith or ethnicity -- must never be tolerated.
"We are calling for total cooperation by federal, state and local law enforcement authorities as they quickly investigate these crimes and encourage anyone with information about these crimes to contact the local authorities immediately."
