WASHINGTON, D.C.— Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) released the following statement after House Democrats voted down an amendment to condemn and oppose the BDS movement and all efforts to delegitimize Israel:
“Just weeks ago Democrats unanimously voted for an amendment condemning anti-Semitism on this same exact underlying bill, but today they won’t condemn the BDS movement that aims to delegitimize Israel. Democrats have no consistency. It’s simple: anti-Semitism is a vile ideology that deserves our condemnation and the State of Israel is our strongest ally in the Middle East that deserves our undivided support.
