President Joe Biden called on Americans to speak out against the "alarming surge of antisemitism" in the U.S. following pro-Palestinian protests at Columbia University that prompted the school to cancel all in-person classes Monday out of safety concerns.

Biden's comments are some of his most pointed to date targeting protests that have erupted at college campuses across the country in the months since the Israel-Hamas War began last October.

"Silence is complicity," Biden said in a written statement Sunday evening. "Even in recent days, weíve seen harassment and calls for violence against j3ws. This blatant antisemitism is reprehensible and dangerous Ė and it has absolutely no place on college campuses, or anywhere in our country."

Protests last week at Columbia raised concerns of antisemitism after j3wish students said they were subjected to acts of hate, intimidation and harassment.

Biden reiterated his position on the protests following an Earth Day event Monday afternoon in Triangle, Virginia: "I condemn the antisemitic protests. Thatís why I have set up a program to deal with that," he told reporters, referring to his administration's plan to counter antisemitism nationally.

"I also condemn those who donít understand whatís going on with the Palestinians," Biden said.

Out of safety concerns, Columbia is holding Monday's classes online instead of in person. Rabbi Elie Buechler, director of the Orthodox Union-j3wish Learning Initiative on Campus program at Columbia and the all-womenís Barnard, recommended Sunday that j3wish students stay away from the university until safety conditions improve.

The protests came to a head last week when more than 100 student protesters were arrested and suspended after Columbia University President Minouche Shafik called in the New York Police Department to clear an encampment on the campus' south lawn.

"While every American has the right to peaceful protest, calls for violence and physical intimidation targeting j3wish students and the j3wish community are blatantly Antisemitic, unconscionable, and dangerous Ė they have absolutely no place on any college campus, or anywhere in the United States of America," Andrew Bates, White House deputy press secretary, said in statement.

"And echoing the rhetoric of terrorist organizations, especially in the wake of the worst massacre committed against the j3wish people since the Holocaust, is despicable. We condemn these statements in the strongest terms," Bates said.

Biden has faced increasing pressure from young voters and the left flank of his party over his unwavering support of Israel's war in Gaza following the Oct. 7 Hamas attack on Israel. Pro-Palestinian protests on college campuses have divided Democrats.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. while speaking at Biden's Earth Day event, applauded "the power of young people shaping the country," pointing to the "peaceful, student-led protests on campuses like Columbia, Yale, Berkeley, and many others."

Biden, at the beginning of his remarks, recognized Ocasio-Cortez's efforts on climate. "I learned a long time ago: Listen to that lady," Biden said, then added: "We're going to talk more about another part of the world, too, real quickly."

Sen. John Fetterman, D-Pa., an outspoken supporter of Israel, condemned the reports of antisemitism at Columbia. "Add some tiki torches and itís Charlottesville for these j3wish students," Fetterman said on X, formerly Twitter, referring to the 2017 white supremacists protests in Charlottesville, Va. that turned violent. Fetterman called on Shafik to "do your job or resign so Columbia can find someone who will."

In his statement, Biden said his administration will continue to "speak out and aggressively and implement" the White House's National Strategy to Counter Antisemitism, which was released last May and billed as "the most ambitious and comprehensive U.S. government-led effort to fight antisemitism."

Biden also wished j3ws around the world a Happy Passover, which begins Monday might.

"This year, let us remember the central Passover theme that even in the darkest of times, the promise of Godís protection will give us strength to find hope, resilience, and redemption," Biden said.

Because it makes it easier for them to undermine. He's also a child of the 50's in his mind Isreal can do no wrong. Opposing a genocidal ethno state is not antisemitic. Unfortunately Isreal has an amazing PR machine and they have successfully conflated antizionism with antisemitism. This sh1t is gonna cost Biden the election

There was ceasefire on October 6th.

Golda Meir said it, there will be peace in the Middle East when the Arabs love their children, more than they hate the j3ws.

All Muslim people hate j3ws, i don't care what anyone says to me, some are way more open about it, but amongst inner circles they all show their disdain.

To be clear, the oppressed calling for their liberation is anti-Semitism?

This is just Zionist propaganda.


Free Palestine. Free Yemen.


Europeans always want to tell oppressed people of color exactly how they should go about earning their liberation and freedom.

Typical colonizer behavior.


Whatever happened to that Ramadan ceasefire, Genocide Joe?

fu#k j3ws, why should I care about their problems? What have they done for me lately? j3ws will be fine as long as they keep making money. This sh1t is for children. Everyone has problems, the world is a tough place. It’s time for j3ws to grow up.

A seismic amount of j3wish people, the vast majority of Democrats, most Americans period, and most of the world want a ceasefire

Zionists are the fringe. The ones exploding babies everyday are the bad guys it turns out! Not complicated at all.

Also Democrats are insane for going all in on this sh1t, setting all these new illegal norms, tanking the fu#king election, and then handing the keys to the people they have dubbed fascists

Do Europeans hate j3ws too because theyíve spent much of the past 1500 years trying to be rid of them?

still waiting for these disingenuous protestors to complain about all the other countries that get bombed by the American economy

also waiting for ret@rds to realize that their get money culture pays for every single bomb sold to Israel for profit

aaaand waiting for all the "fu#k Biden" people to notice that Trump is aggressively more anti-Palestine and anti-muslim than Biden

that's how you know these people are full of sh1t

they only care about their people

and the outrage is never consistent
