CENTERVILLE, Ohio (WDTN) – The effects of air strikes in Gaza have spread to the U.S.

Anti Israel demonstrations across the globe have reached the United States recently. Cathy Gardner, CEO of the Jewish Federation of Dayton says what has gone from protests has turned into anti Semitism.

Those protests against Israel have grown in numbers – especially in the United States.

“This goes way beyond Israel”, says Gardner “and there are a number of factors that are hard to understand.”

“We need to understand and need others to understand the situation.”
