Rep. Bass Condemns Recent Attacks on Jews In Los Angeles

May 21, 2021
Press Release
WASHINGTON - Today, Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA) issued the following statement:

"There is absolutely no place for hate crimes or anti-Semitism in our city. Based on allegations and video evidence of what transpired at Sushi Fumi this week - the harassment and assault of diners, the singling out of Jews for violent attack, and the ensuing brawl that reports say resulted in a hospitalization - I support the investigation being conducted and fully expect justice to be served. Additional footage of what appears to be a Jewish man on foot being chased by cars waving Palestinian flags is abhorrent. Every single member of our community should feel safe walking down the street no matter their faith, origin or background. This rash of violence and fear must stop."
