WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, the House of Representatives passed a resolution condemning and denouncing antisemitism in the United States and around the world. This resolution was led by Congressman Max Miller (R-OH) and Congressman David Kustoff (R-TN), the only two Republican Jewish members of the House of Representatives. It passed by a vote of 311 – 14, with 92 Members voting Present.
Since Hamas’s horrific and barbaric attack on October 7, 2023, that killed over 1,000 innocent Israeli civilians and 30 Americans, antisemitic incidents across the U.S. have spiked 388% over the same period last year, according to reports from the Anti-Defamation League’s (ADL) Center on Extremism.
“The World has seen a drastic rise of antisemitism since October 7th that is deeply disheartening and extremely concerning,” said Congressman Max Miller. “Elected leaders must have the courage to condemn and fight all forms of domestic and global antisemitism. While I am glad this resolution passed the House today, I am disappointed that 106 of my colleagues failed to take this opportunity to condemn antisemitism forcefully.”
“Since October 7th, we have seen an alarming rise in antisemitic incidents, attacks, harassment, and discrimination both in the United States and across the globe,” said Congressman Kustoff. “Such hate has no place in our national discourse, and it is imperative leaders voice their strong opposition to these horrifying acts of violence and discrimination. I urge my colleagues to support this important resolution that will show the world that the United States’ support for the State of Israel and the Jewish community is steadfast and unwavering.”
This resolution was endorsed by the Republican Jewish Coalition.
