Senators Lankford, Rosen Praise FBI Efforts to Thwart Anti-Semitic Attack

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – Senators James Lankford (R-OK) and Jacky Rosen (D-NV) today issued a statement on the FBI arrest of an individual suspected of planning an attack on a synagogue in Colorado:

“On behalf of the Senate Bipartisan Task Force for Combating Anti-Semitism, we are grateful to the team at the FBI that assessed and stopped an attack on a synagogue in Colorado today. No one should be afraid to live their faith or attend their place of worship. Anti-Semitism has no place in this country, and we will keep this Colorado community in our prayers today. Hatred and acts of senseless violence violate everything we are as Americans.” 

Lankford and Rosen launched the Bipartisan Task Force for Combating Anti-Semitism late last month. The mission of the Task Force will be to collaborate with law enforcement, federal agencies, state and local government, educators, advocates, clergy, and other stakeholders to combat anti-Semitism by educating and empowering our communities.
