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.

ACLJ petitions aren’t merely names on a page but powerful tools used with governments, the media, and courts to focus attention on injustice and create real-world change. Here's how:
First, we can directly and immediately alert individual Members of Congress and other government officials of the size and scope of the public support for our initiatives. Unlike, say, White House petitions – which at best generate a response from low-level staffers – our most successful petitions have generated direct White House, State Department, and congressional responses at the highest level.
Second, we alert members of the media and can help drive national news stories as petition signatures grow.
Third, petitions not only influence foreign governments, they can provide aid and comfort to persecuted people abroad.
Finally, you can directly participate in the most critical court battles of our time. Your signature - your voice - can be represented in briefs to the Supreme Court and to federal courts across America.
