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.
See where B'nai B'rith International stands on the issues.
