Tillis Co-Sponsors Resolution To Condemn Violence Against Jews, Anti-Israel Rhetoric From Politicians and Media

Press Release:

    WASHINGTON, D.C.     Today, U.S. Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) co-sponsored a resolution condemning hatred and violence against Jews, denouncing anti-Israel rhetoric from elected officials and the media, and reaffirming that Jews must be treated with dignity and respect.

    "Attacking someone because of their religious beliefs should never be tolerated. We've seen an alarming rise in anti-Semitic attacks across the country over the last week in response to the state of Israel exercising its right to defend itself," said Senator Tillis. "Every member of Congress should unequivocally condemn this targeted violence. I am proud to co-sponsor this resolution to affirm our support and protections for Jewish Americans."

    "At a moment when Jews are literally under attack in the streets of our nation, Jewish Americans need to know that Congress is on their side. This resolution provides an opportunity for our elected leaders to take a stand against antisemitism and against the demonization of Israel that fuels it," said Executive Director of the Republican Jewish Coalition Matt Brooks.

    "As anti-Semitism continues to rear its ugly head, we must once again remind the world that no one should ever be attacked for their religious beliefs. Whether this occurs at home or abroad, it is wrong, and we must condemn it. This resolution helps do exactly that," said the Family Research Council.

    In recent weeks, Jewish people in the United States have been threatened, cursed at, spit on, burned, and physically assaulted in nearly 200 documented attacks since the start of the most recent conflict between Israel and Palestine.

    Last week, Senator Tillis joined his colleagues in introducing a resolution to stand with Israel and condemn the attacks by Hamas, an Iranian-backed terrorist organization. He and 43 colleagues also sent a letter to President Biden urging him to stand with Israel and stop negotiating potential sanctions relief to Iran.

    The resolution has received support from the Republican Jewish Coalition and the Family Research Council and is also cosponsored by U.S. Senators Rick Scott (R-FL), Mike Braun (R-IN), Joni Ernst (R-IA), Ted Cruz (R-TX), John Kennedy (R-LA), Roger Marshall (R-KS), Steve Daines (R-MT), Kevin Cramer (R-ND), Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), Marco Rubio (R-FL), Mike Crapo (R-ID), Bill Hagerty (R-TN), and Bill Cassidy (R-LA).
