The resolution’s principle was the same as the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s “working definition” of anti-Semitism, published in 2016 that includes anti-Zionism as antisemitism.
Jewish Republicans Max Miller of Ohio and David Kustoff of Tennessee introduced the nonbinding resolution, which passed 311 to 14. The opposition was almost all Democrats, most notably the progressive “Squad” members and one Republican, Thomas Massie of Kentucky. 92 Democrats voted “present,” rather than voting “no.”
The resolution was introduced to show support for American Jews following a massive spike in antisemitism since Hamas terrorists attacked the Jewish state on October 7, massacring over 1,200 and taking over 200 captives.
On Tuesday, the GOP asked Jewish American students to speak on the discrimination and attacks they faced on college campuses.
NYU student Bella Ingber said, "Being a Jew at NYU is experiencing how 'diversity, equity, and inclusion' is not a value that NYU extends to its Jewish students," referring to the hatred she has endured since October 7.
MIT student Talia Khan said, "This is the same climate of antisemitism that has led to the massacre of Jews throughout the centuries. This is not just harassment. This is our lives on the line."
University of Pennsylvania student Eyal Yakoby told the media, "I should not be here today...I should be taking in...my senior year of college...I am because 36 hours ago, I, along with most of campus, sought refuge in our rooms as classmates and professors chanted proudly for the genocide of Jews," referencing the angry pro-Hamas mobs that marched on campus.
Rep Elise Stefanik (R-NY) grilled school administrators over the discrimination on Capitol Hill Tuesday, including Harvard’s President Claudine Gay, who refused to say whether the calling for the mass violence and genocide of the Jewish people is considered harassment or bullying according to the university’s own code of conduct.
