Trump Calls For Unity In Wake Of Attack Against Jews

U.S. President Donald Trump has called for unity to fight against anti-Semitism, a day after a knife attack at a rabbi’s house in New York state.

“We must all come together to fight, confront and eradicate the evil scourge of anti-Semitism,” Mr. Trump said.

At least five people were injured in the attack in Monsey, north of New York City on Saturday.

The attacker was later arrested in New York’s Harlem area. He was charged with attempted murder.

Witnesses said the attacker burst into the house, which was hosting a Hanukkah celebration, pulled out a large knife and began attacking people.
