B’nai B’rith International President Charles O. Kaufman and CEO Daniel S. Mariaschin have issued the following statement:   
B’nai B’rith welcomes the House vote slated for Wednesday on a measure condemning anti-Semitism in response to Rep. Ilhan Omar’s “dual loyalty” charges against Jewish lawmakers.
Accusing Jews of having more allegiance to a foreign government, or to their own religion is a long-standing dangerous and malicious anti-Semitic trope aimed at undermining Jews’ integration into their societies.  
In her short time in Congress, Omar has developed a reliable track record of anti-Semitic statements. As we have noted previously, her vocal anti-Semitic and anti-Israel pre-disposition should preclude her continued service on the House Foreign Affairs Committee and we ask that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi remove her from that prestigious post.
