'Antisemitic, and un-American': Biden condemns violence outside LA synagogue [View all]

President Joe Biden on Monday condemned violent clashes between pro-Palestine demonstrators and pro-Israel counterprotesters outside a Los Angeles synagogue Sunday, saying he was “appalled” by the incident.

“Intimidating Jewish congregants is dangerous, unconscionable, antisemitic, and un-American,” Biden wrote in an X post. “Americans have a right to peaceful protest. But blocking access to a house of worship — and engaging in violence — is never acceptable.”

Los Angeles police said Monday that officers responded to a protest in the Pico-Robertson neighborhood of the city that involved “several physical altercations” between the two groups, resulting in two reported batteries, both of which will be investigated.

One individual was arrested, cited and released for having a spiked post, according to police. They added that officers will conduct additional patrols around places of worship.

Other leaders weighed in Sunday, including California Gov. Gavin Newsom, who said there was “no excuse for targeting a house of worship” and that “antisemitic hatred has no place in California.”
