With the alarming rise in anti-Semitism across the country & from some Democrats in Congress, we must take action & stand with Israel against the dangerous BDS movement. Every member should sign the discharge petition to bypass Pelosi & bring anti-BDS legislation up for a vote.

The Senate took swift action earlier this year against the BDS movement by passing S. 1 in a widely bipartisan vote. But Nancy Pelosi is letting the radically anti-Israel elements of her caucus call the shots and refusing to bring similar anti-BDS legislation to the House Floor.

Look to your own house first. The alarming rise of anti-Semitism in the White House should concern you more. For example, @realDonaldTrump invited Hungary's Orban to the WH and praised him, despite Orban being a rabid anti-Semite, Holocaust denier, and human rights violator.

The Jewish American right decided long ago to ignore Trump's white nationalism & to look the other way when it came to his anti-Semitic dog-whistles. Why? Because it decided that Trump's pro-Israel, anti-Muslim positions were more important than the very safety of their people.

The anti is coming from the Democratic Party. It comes from people of color. Not white nationalists as you are stating.
