Republicans Move Amendment Against Antisemitism Thru House — Unanimously

The House Republicans moved an amendment opposing antisemitism through the U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday, using an unusual parliamentary maneuver from the minority that rarely succeeds. It passed 424-0. The “motion to recommit” is rarely successful. Typically, it is a last-ditch effort by the minority party to make an amendment to another bill. In this case, Republicans offered an amendment to a House resolution against the U.S. supporting Saudi Arabia’s war in Yemen. The amendment declares that “[I]t is in the national security interest of the United States to…

Actress Roseanne Barr slammed the “repulsive” Natalie Portman ahead of her trip to Jerusalem this month, where she will address the Israeli parliament and campaign against the boycott, divest, and sanctions (BDS) movement against the Jewish state.

Last April, Portman refused to attend an award ceremony in Israel as the recipient of the…

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), who likes to refer to himself as the “guardian” of Israel, is whipping against a pro-Israel bill in the U.S. Senate — as a protest against the ongoing partial government shutdown. Schumer, leader of the minority party, is trying to pressure fellow Democrats to join a filibuster that will prevent Senate Bill 1 from coming up for a vote. The bill, sponsored by Sen.

Democrat Rashida Tlaib Blasted for Antisemitic Tweet: ‘They Forgot What Country They Represent’

Newly-installed Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) is being criticized for an antisemitic tweet she posted on Sunday evening, accusing pro-Israel Americans of dual loyalty — a common theme used by antisemites to attack Jews. Tlaib tweeted in response to Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), who is opposing legislation targeting the “boycott, divestment, sanctions” (BDS) movement — itself widely considered antisemitic for singling out Israel. Sanders and far-left Democrats oppose the anti-BDS legislation because, they claim, it stifles freedom of speech and association — though the same Democrats often support censorship of conservatives…
