McMorris Rodgers: Anti-Semitism Won’t Divide Us

Feb 11, 2019

Eastern Washington Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers released the following statement:

“We can’t allow Congresswoman Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitic attacks to divide us. She did the right thing by apologizing to the Jewish community. America and Israel have an everlasting bond rooted in our shared values for security, opportunity, and of course, freedom. To uphold those values, we must continue to be a bipartisan, staunch, and steadfast friend of Israel.

“In addition, we should affirm with one voice that anti-Semitism and hateful stereotypes against Jews won’t be tolerated anywhere in our great nation. The inalienable human right to worship without fear or intimidation is part of the American Way. In not just our words, but also our actions, it’s incumbent upon all of us to protect our God-given rights for religious freedom and tolerance. That’s why I’m urging the People’s House to lead so this Congress sends the Anti-Semitism Awareness Act to the President’s desk. We must make it abundantly clear that we will stand strong against prejudice.”
