Leaders silent on anti-Semitism

As we experience multiple manifestations of anti-Semitism including threats to Jewish Community Centers and attacks on Jewish cemeteries, why is there an absence of political leadership? Why don’t we see strong statements condemning anti-Semitism from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Sen. Rand Paul and Rep. Andy Barr? Their silence encourages people involved to believe that these terrible acts have the tacit support of our country’s leaders.
