BRONX, N.Y. – U.S. Representative Ritchie Torres (NY-15) tonight issued the following statement condemning planned New York City event glorifying the deadly terrorist attacks in Israel:

“A New York City bar known as The End is holding an ‘Intifada Fundraver’ – glorifying the deadliest massacre of Jews since the Holocaust.

In promoting the event, its Instagram account features a video of Hamas terrorists bulldozing the Gaza Strip border wall before carrying out the bloodiest terrorist attack in the history of Israel.

There is a deep rot of antisemitism in American culture that cannot be ignored and must be confronted at every turn. No more turning a blind eye.”
