This is excellent news. The gutless Speaker Pelosi has prevented a vote on the anti-BDS legislation passed in the Senate, out of fear of infuriating her bosses in the Jihad Caucus. In the interim pro-Israel Jewish Americans are being terrorized by the pro-BDS thugs, particularly on college campuses. It’s disgraceful.
The Democrats will often falsely accuse the pro-Jewish President Trump and the pro-Jewish Republicans of anti-Semitism. Let’s see how many Democrats will support legislation to fight the Boycott the Jews Movement, compared to the Republicans. Let’s see how many Democrats in the House will stand up to the anti-Semitic Jihad Caucus. #JEXIT.
GOP House Leadership Launches Discharge Petition To Fight Anti-Israel Movement, Daily Caller, Molly Prince, May 15, 2019:
Republican House leaders revealed the caucus’s strategy to oppose efforts to isolate Israel through the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement amid rising anti-Semitism within the Democratic Party.
The BDS movement seeks to punish the Jewish state of Israel by politically and economically depriving the country for its alleged mistreatment of Palestinians. BDS initially metastasized through college campuses and has been linked to terrorist organizations such as Hamas and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP).
The Anti-Defamation League describes the BDS movement as “the most prominent effort to undermine Israel’s existence” and it is now supported by progressive members of Congress.
Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy announced Wednesday that a discharge petition would be available to allow members to vote on the House version of Senate Bill 1 (SB.1) with only an absolute majority. SB.1 enables a state or local government to adopt measures to divest its assets from entities using BDS to influence Israel’s policies.
