Washington, D.C. - U.S. Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) released the following statement regarding Philadelphia NAACP President, Minister Rodney Muhammad's sharing of an anti-Semitic post on social media:

"Minister Rodney Muhammad's hateful post is a reflection of the disturbing rise in anti-Semitism that we are witnessing here and abroad. Anti-Semitic speech and hate speech of any type has no place in our commonwealth or our country. I stand with the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia and organizations that have strongly condemned Minister Muhammad's actions."
