Antisemitism has no place – especially in Congress.
Congresswomen Ilhan Omar (MN) and Rashida Tlaib (MI) have repeatedly engaged in antisemitic 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 antisemitic trope. She even accused the U.S. and Israel of "unthinkable atrocities," comparing them to the Taliban and Hamas terrorists. 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 antisemitism. Demand Reps. Omar and Tlaib be removed from their committees and censured.
