Man Facing Federal Charges for Threats Against Jewish Senator

( – A man from Las Vegas was arrested in October and was nailed with federal charges for a series of threats he made against Sen. Jacky Rosen (D-NV). 43-year-old John Anthony Miller stands accused of leaving multiple threatening voicemails for Rosen between October 11th and the 19th.

Miller stands accused of making several threats, including to assault, abduct, and murder Rosen. The complaint lists several transcribed examples of his profanity-laden tirades where he emphasized the fact that Rosen is Jewish. In one October 19th voice message, Rosen allegedly said that Rosen was working to make Jewish settlers unable to return to the U.S. It was unclear which side Miller supports in the Israel-Hamas conflict.

He called the Senator numerous expletives and suggested she would “burn in hell” for her crimes. He was arrested on October 26th and will be charged with a single count of threatening a government official.

Rosen’s office said that the Senator trusts the prosecutors and federal law enforcement officials to handle the situation. Miller will appear in court on November 13th before U.S. Magistrate Judge Elayna Youchah. She’s also Jewish.

Antisemitic and anti-Islamic sentiments have been on the rise in the wake of the Israel-Hamas conflict. The current war was triggered by an October 7th surprise attack on Israeli settlements in the south of the country by Hamas, the current governing organization running Gaza and the West Bank, otherwise known as the occupied territories.

A Cornell student was arrested and charged with crimes related to multiple violent threats he made on a school message board. Patrick Dai, 21, is a junior at the university and faces up to 5 years behind bars and a $250,000 fine if convicted.

NY Governor Kathy Hochul (D) announced an independent review of policies having to do with antisemitism at City University of New York. The review is intended to assess and improve how administrators deal with complaints about antisemitic conduct. The goal is to improve the situation for Jewish students and staff in the wake of the current Middle East conflict.
