US Senate unanimously calls for swift action on anti-Semitic bomb threats

The entire US Senate has signed a letter calling on the Trump administration to provide greater protection to Jewish sites as well as to take action against bomb threats and vandalism amid the rising wave of anti-Semitic incidents nationwide. The letter says "It has become clear that threats of violence against individual JCCs are not isolated incidents" and, "These cowardly acts aim to create an atmosphere of fear and disrupt the important programs and services offered by JCCs to everyone in the communities they serve." The letter was sent to FBI Director James Comey, Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
More than 100 bomb threats have been made against American Jewish sites since January, including ones in nine states on Tuesday.
