US Congress condemns anti-Semitism and anti-Muslim hate

After a furious, divisive debate, Democrats got together Thursday for a resolution condemning both anti-Semitism and anti-Muslim intolerance by 407-23 votes. All 23 noes were Republican. Rep Liz Cheney called the vote a “sham” and said the resolution failed to address the issue “that is front and center.” The controversy was sparked by comments by the Muslim Democratic Rep Ilhan Omar which both parties labeled anti-Semitic. Cheney accused the Democrats of being controlled by far-left extremists who “can’t muster the courage to stand up to blatant anti-Semitism.”

    There is not such a think as “anti-Muslim hate”!
    People have “Muslim awareness” and they rightfully run away from Muslims because most likely they came with knifes, bombs, or cars, to kill, crush and destroy, which is common knowledge and common sense.
    YOU CAN NOT BLAME THE VICTIMS OF ISLAM CRIMES FOR REFUSING DEATH AT THE HAND OF MUSLIMS.
    We all need protection, police and army to supervise permanently all activities of Muslims, and all hidden secretive meetings in mosques.

      2 Muslims are now Congress-people. Typical, the Palestinian brings up anti-semitic tissues. Unfortunately it’s in their DNA. This raises problems for the Democratic Party, which has been taking on an anti-israel approach.

      They watered down the resolution to include so many nationalities and groups, that it almost completly masked the anti-semitic Behavior of these Congress people. It is a sham.

      Omar now comes.out out and praises the resolution for being anti islamophobia, and using it to raise funds for her.

      What an amazing PR ploy that palestinians are so effective at: Always twisting the truth.

      So sad the Democratic pzrty catered to this bully.

    A motion that legitimizes terms like “anti-Muslim” and “Islamophobia” are more destructive to Jews in the end than no motion at all.

    What it does is protect the haters and allow them to continue their hate because everyone will be afraid to criticize an antisemite like Omar because they will be afraid of being branded “Islamophobes.”

    They should have CONDEMNED Omar instead. Antisemitism is nothing bad to a Muslim because their beliefs call for domination and the only way is to dehumanize, attack, stereotype, and make others hate the people you target in order to advance your jihad.

    And to think that so many naive Jews vote Democrat, or even worse, give money to those fascists. So sad.

    This resolution is so antisemitic. To say “we condemn Congressmen making antisemitic statements just like we condemn Congressmen making antimuslem statements” is making a farce of their blatant antisemitism. Name ONE congressman, or for that manner ani U.S. government official that made antimuslim statements? No such thing.

    So this statement is similar to:
    “we condemnd the nazis as well as the Jews in Aushwitz”
    or
    “we condemn the arab terrorist as well as the IDF”

    Same old antisemitism. When bad guys attack good guys and try to kill them and take their property, the response should be: “stop the bad guys attacking innocent people”, not “stop fighting” as if it is a symmetric situation with no good or bad.

    Democrats in U.S. are no better than Leftists in Europe, they just try to pretend a little more (because they still get lots of Jewish money), but not for long.

    Few people are anti-Muslim. Instead they are anti-Islam which is completely justified and part of free speech rights of most Western countries.
