State Department takes indirect shot at Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib in recent policy revision

The State Department recently revised its definition of anti-Semitism in an apparent response to strong anti-Israel rhetoric from progressive lawmakers like Reps. Ilham Omar (D-Minn.) and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.).

The agency'sálist of anti-Semitic definitionsánow includes "drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis." It is the 11th item on the list of definitions that, when initially publicized in May, included only 10 instances.

Adam Milstein, founder of the pro-Israel Adam and Gila Milstein Foundation, brought attention to the revised guidelines last week.

The revision was made after Omar and Tliabáattempted to legitimizeáthe anti-Israel movement known as Boycott, Divest and Sanctions (BDS).

Last month the pairáintroduced legislation to restrict legislative measuresáthat limit boycotts, a bill that was widely seen as laying the foundation to promote the BDS movement in the U.S.

Speaking from the House floor, Tlaib attempted to justify the BDS movement by invoking the American boycott of Nazi Germany.

"Americans boycotted Nazi Germany in response to dehumanization, imprisonment, and genocide of Jewish people," Tlaibásaid.

In response, the Houseáoverwhelmingly passed a resolution condemningáthe BDS movement. The vote was 398-17.


Democrats wouldn't buy a clue if it was government subsidized.
