Florida Senator Joins Pro-Israel Rally at George Washington University

As Jewish students across America continue to face threats from the disgusting rise of antisemitism and violence stemming from pro-Hamas encampments on college campuses, Florida Senator Rick Scott recently visited George Washington University to take part in their Israel solidarity event and voice his Pro-Israel stance.




The Florida Republican also said that pro-Hamas protesters were “criminals” who must be prosecuted and expelled.

The Senator’s visit to GW followed a meeting on the campus with Jewish and pro-Israel students. During his conversation with GW students, Senator Scott heard their concerns for their safety, and discussed his support for Israel, his fight to stop the rise of unlawful university encampments that have led to horrific antisemitic verbal and physical attacks, and his action to secure the safety of Jewish students.

During his visit, the Florida Senator discussed his support for Israel, calls for the immediate release of hostages held by Iran-backed Hamas terrorists following the brutal October 7th attacks, his disgust and action to stop the rise of unlawful university encampments that have led to horrific antisemitic verbal and physical attacks, and his fight to secure the safety of Jewish students.

“Jewish students deserve to have a place where they can learn and go about their daily life without fearing for their safety, and they deserve university leadership that fights for their right to do so,” Florida Senator Rick Scott said. “My daughter attended GW and what I am seeing on that campus today is something I never could have imagined. It saddens me to see what this university and so many others have become because their presidents and leadership have chosen to cowardly appease these pro-Hamas terrorist sympathizers and allow them to take over these campuses. This isn’t free speech – these pro-Hamas protesters are breaking our laws, calling for the death of Jewish people and threatening our students. These criminals must be prosecuted and expelled.”

Senator Scott said he has been adamant about protecting students at American colleges and universities who continue to be threatened by terrorist sympathizers calling for the eradication of Jewish people and the destruction of Israel.

“In the U.S. Senate, I will do everything in my power to support Jewish Americans, and all Jewish students, and make sure Israel can defend itself against the disgusting Iran-backed terrorism that seeks to destroy it,” Senator Scott said.
