Almost 100 Dems Refuse to Support House Bill Condemning Anti-Semitism

Tuesday in the United States Congress, the House of Representatives voted to condemn the rise of anti-Semitism with a 311-14 margin. Although the measure was approved, nearly one hundred House Democrats voted “present.”

The move comes amid Israel’s continuing war against Hamas in the Gaza strip, which began on October 7th, 2023 after the terror group unleashed an unprecedented blitz against the jewish state which left over 1,200 Israeli’s dead and thousands more wounded.

The party-by-party breakdown was as follows: One Republican voted “nay,” 216 Republicans voted “yea,” and four Republicans abstained from the poll. Alongside the 92 “present” votes, 95 Democrats cast “yes” ballots, 13 Democrats cast “nay” ballots, and 13 Democrats abstained from voting.

Reps. Jerry Nadler (D-NY), Dan Goldman (D-NY), and Jamie Raskin (D-MD) spearheaded the effort to have Democrats vote “present” on the resolution. Their opposition stemmed from the resolution’s statement that equated anti-Zionism with anti-Semitism.
