There were 17 members of congress who voted in favor of legitimizing the BDS (boycotting the Jews) Movement. 16 of the 17 were Democrats. Now that the jihad caucus is in charge of the Democrat Party, this number will surely grow in the future.
In addition, the much more powerful and biting anti-BDS resolution proposed by the Senate Republicans, is on the desk of Speaker Pelosi collecting dust. Pelosi knows that many more Democrats would not support a bill that actually attacks the BDS Movement instead of just condemning it. #Jexodus.
