‘Members of Congress have been embracing these individuals with open arms and echoing some of their worst messages…’
(Joshua Paladino, Liberty Headlines) A Jewish Republican in the House of Representatives introduced a resolution on Jan. 23 to “reject anti-Israel and anti-Semitic hatred in the United States and around the world.”
Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-N.Y., introduced the resolution before Sunday’s International Holocaust Remembrance Day at a time when anti-Semitism “is becoming more widely embraced and accepted within American politics and the halls of Congress,” according to Zeldin’s press release.
“As Louis Farrakhan, Tamika Mallory, Linda Sarsour and others have been working hard to inject anti-Israel and anti-Semitic hatred into American politics and society, some Members of Congress have been embracing these individuals with open arms and echoing some of their worst messages,” Zeldin wrote.
The House resolution also comes at a time when Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Nebraska, called on the Senate to reject anti-Catholic bigotry and House Majority Whip James Clyburn asked the House to reject white nationalism.
Women’s March leader Mallory called Farrakhan “the greatest of all time,” despite his disturbing anti-Semitic rhetoric.
“So when they talk about Farrakhan, call me a hater, you do what they do, call me an anti-Semite. Stop it, I’m anti-Termite,” Farrakhan said last year. “Satanic Jews have infected the whole world with poison and deceit.”
Farrakhan admires famous anti-Semites, too.
In 1984, he called Adolf Hitler “a very great man.”
Tlaib and Omar were both elected in 2018, showing a trend toward anti-Semitism in the Democratic Party.
They both support the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement and they promote people like Abbas Hamideh, who does not believe Israel has a right to exist.
