President Bush Signs Global Anti-Semitism Review Act of 2004

“I believe that millions in the Middle East plead in silence for their freedom. I believe women want to live in a free society. I believe that moms and dads want to raise their children infreedom and peace. I believe all these things, because freedom is not America's gift to the world,freedom is the Almighty God's gift to each man and woman in this world.Extending freedom also means confronting the evil of anti-Semitism. Today I signed the GlobalAnti-Semitism Review Act of 2004. This law commits a government to keep a record of anti-Semitic acts throughout the world, and also a record of responses to those acts. This nation willkeep watch; we will make sure that the ancient impulse of anti-Semitism never finds a home in the modern world.For all Americans, these years in our history will always stand apart. There are quiet times in thelife of a nation when little is expected of its leaders. This isn't one of those times. This is a timethat requires firm resolve, clear vision, and a deep faith in the values that make us a great nation.”
