In a recent Twitter interaction, Samir Becic voiced his support for the fight against anti-Semitism, re-tweeting Dr. Peter Hotez‘s (Health Fitness Revolution’s man of the month!) flyer about an upcoming panel of Houstonians who have experienced antisemitism. The panel will be held at Congregation Beth Israel in Houston, TX on December 8th, 2022.
“That the scientist should observe silence in political matters, i.e. human affairs in the broader sense…Does not such restrain signify a lack of responsibility?…I do not regret one word of what I have said am of the belief that my actions have served mankind.”— Prof Peter Hotez MD PhD (@PeterHotez) December 4, 2022

“We cannot allow ourselves to be consumed by hate,” Becic says. “It’s destructive to humanity! We should all stand together with our Jewish brothers and sisters in fighting against antisemitism. Together, we are stronger against any form of discrimination. #StopAntisemitism“

The world has witnessed a resurgence of anti-Semitism since the onset of COVID-19, along with a dramatic rise in hate crimes. The United States is no exception to this trend.
Anti-Semitism is not a new phenomenon; it has been around for centuries and it continues to exist today. It’s also not exclusive to one country or culture — in fact, anti-Semitic attacks have been reported all over the globe. Anti-Semitism is on the rise and can be seen as an emerging threat to democracy itself.
