White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said that President Joe Biden condemns the chants of "death to America" and "death to Israel" at an anti-Israel rally in Dearborn Michigan.

“Peaceful protests are something that the president has also been very clear that, its important to give folks space to peacefully protest. But any type of violent rhetoric, we are going to denounce,” Jean-Pierre said in response to a question about the rally by a Fox News reporter yesterday (Tuesday).

She added, "Obviously, we will condemn any, any violent rhetoric."

When asked if the administration is concerned about homegrown terrorist threats in Dearborn given recent displays of anti-American extremism, she replied, "I don’t have any intelligence to share with you on that, obviously that’s something we’re always very vigilant about."

Jean-Pierre said in response to a question of whether President Biden would address the rally, she replied, "you're hearing from me."

During the 'Al Quds Day' rally on Friday, speakers and participants called for the destruction of not just Israel but the United States as well.

Activist Tarek Bazzi said, “Imam Khomeini, who declared International Al Quds Day, this is why he would say to pour all of your chants and all of your shouts upon the head of America."

He continued, "When these fools ask us if Israel has the right to exist, the chant 'death to Israel' has become the most logical chant shouted across the world today!"

The genocidal slogan "from the river to the sea, Palestine will be free," a call for the destruction of the entire State of Israel and its citizens, was also chanted at the rally.
