Miller Resolution Supporting Israel Scheduled for House Vote

WASHINGTON DC – Today, Congressman Max Miller (OH-07), along with Congressmen August Pfluger (TX-11) and David Kustoff (TN-08) introduced a resolution supporting the State of Israel. The resolution clearly affirms that: Israel is not a racist or an apartheid state; The House rejects all forms of antisemitism and xenophobia; and the United States will always be a staunch partner and supporter of the State of Israel. The resolution is supported by House leadership and scheduled for a vote in the U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday, July 17th.

“Congresswoman Jayapal can try to take back her comments, but her intent was crystal clear—and absolutely deplorable,” said Congressman Miller. “There is no place for this type of rhetoric in the House. Israel is not only the forever home of the Jewish people but also one of America’s closest democratic allies. I’ll always stand up for our great friend.”

“Israel is the United States’ strongest partner in the Middle East,” said Congressman Pfluger. “Representatives Pramila Jayapal, Rashida Tlaib, and Ilhan Omar’s repeated comments denigrating Israel are unacceptable and disgusting. I am proud to introduce this resolution ensuring all Americans know where their Representatives stand when it comes to supporting Israel and our Jewish communities.”

“The United States and Israel have an unshakeable bond and I’m grateful to Rep. Pfluger for bringing forward this critical resolution expressing support for Israel in light of the recent rise in anti-Semitic rhetoric we’ve seen from leading figures in the Democrat Party,” said Leader Scalise. “This should be an easy vote – any threat to Israel is a threat to the United States and the freedom we hold dear – and I’m proud to schedule this bill ahead of Israeli President Isaac Herzog’s visit. House Republicans will always stand with our long-time friend and ally, the State of Israel, and the Jewish people.”

“Rep. Jayapal’s recent anti-Israel comments are repulsive and repugnant,” said Congressman Kustoff. “Such hateful, antisemitic rhetoric has no place in the halls of Congress, nor in our national conversation. I am proud to introduce this resolution with my colleagues that reaffirms the United States’ strong commitment to our strongest friend and ally in the Middle East, Israel.”
