Pitco, the founder of the Lest People Forget Project, is calling for attention from the White House regarding the murder of a Jewish protester in America. She expresses concern that the mainstream media is not acknowledging the significant threat that Jewish Americans currently face. Despite making up less than 2.5% of the US population, Jewish Americans are the victims of approximately 60% of hate crimes based on religion.
This rise in anti-Semitism, particularly after the October 7th attacks in Israel, has left Jewish Americans fearful in their daily lives. Elizabeth, as the daughter of Jewish refugees from the former Soviet Union, finds this situation terrifying. She highlights the recent murder of a Jewish man at a pro-Israel event and criticizes the silent response from the mainstream media.
Elizabeth emphasizes the unity and resilience of the Jewish community, both in America and worldwide, in the face of such tragedy. She believes that protecting all individuals, regardless of their religious or racial background, is crucial and calls for equal treatment as guaranteed by the Constitution..
