Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), one of Congress’s most ardent supporters of Israel, plans to introduce a resolution explicitly condemning anti-Semitism next week, according to a report.
Jewish Insider, citing “a source familiar with the plan,” reported that the Texas Republican is helping to a draft a measure which is solely a “condemnation of anti-Semitism.”
“There’s nothing extraneous. The entire thing clocks in at just over 100 words,” the source told Jewish Insider. It is unclear whether the text will mention Rep. Ilan Omar (D-MN), whose latest anti-Jewish remarks prompted the House of Representatives to pass an anti-hate resolution Thursday. Last week, Omar received bipartisan blowback for suggesting pro-Israel organizations pressure lawmakers into pledging allegiance to a foreign country.
