Anti-Semitism has no place – especially in Congress.
Congresswomen Ilhan Omar (MN) and Rashida Tlaib (MI) have repeatedly engaged in anti-Semitic rhetoric.
Rep. Omar said that support for Israel is “all about the Benjamins” – a bigoted accusation that Jews control all the money. She’s attacked Jews and anyone who supports Israel as having a dual allegiance – another anti-Semitic trope. Rep. Tlaib said she has a “calming feeling” about the Holocaust.
Someone espousing these bigoted views should not have access to classified information or sit on congressional committees such as the Foreign Affairs Committee.
At the ACLJ, we’re fully engaged in the battle to defend Israel’s interests and the Jewish people from these kinds of hateful attacks. We’re fighting at the U.N. and the International Criminal Court. Now, we have to fight in our own Congress to defend Israel.
Leadership in Congress refuses to fully address this issue.
Take action with us. Fight back against anti-Semitism. Demand Reps. Omar and Tlaib be removed from their committees and censured.
As we battle to defend Israel and defeat anti-Semitism in Congress, at the U.N., & at the ICC, we urgently need your support. Chip in $5 today.
