Pfluger resolution supporting Israel passes House

WASHINGTON, D.C. Congressman August Pfluger (TX-11)’s resolution supporting the State of Israel passed the U.S. House of Representatives Tuesday.

The resolution states that: The State of Israel is not a racist or apartheid state; Congress rejects all forms of antisemitism and xenophobia; and the United States will always be a staunch partner and supporter of Israel. Sen. Tom Cotton introduced companion legislation in the Senate.

“Israel is our most important partner in the Middle East,” Pfluger said in a news release. “As Congress welcomes Israeli President Herzog, we affirm that Congress stands with Israel and unequivocally supports our Jewish communities. I am extremely disappointed that Members of the Democrat party refused to vote against antisemitism and affirm that Israel is not a racist state. I would like to thank Senator Cotton for his partnership on this effort and encourage the Senate to immediately take up the measure and deliver support from both Houses of Congress.”
