AIPAC-funded House Democrat wants to railroad passage of “Countering Antisemitism Act”
06/26/2024 // Belle Carter // Views

New York Rep and House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries is pushing for the total censorship of criticisms about Israel by the immediate passage of the "Countering Antisemitism Act" which is believed to be backed by the Jewish non-governmental group Anti-Defamation League (ADL)

The American Israel Public Affairs Committee Political Action Committee (AIPAC)-funded lawmaker, posted on X, formerly Twitter, about his stance making it appear that the said legislation needs speedy approval. "The dangerous explosion of antisemitic incidents in New York City and the nation requires decisive action at every level of government. We have to crush this cancer with the fierce urgency of now. Congress must pass the bipartisan Countering Antisemitism Act. Immediately."

A handle on X reported that Jeffries had collected $1.5 million from AIPAC and the Israel lobby which is why he is exerting all his efforts to push for the bill. "Now he supports censorship bills trying to CRIMINALIZE criticism of Israel. The representative is COMPROMISED." AIPAC Tracker tweeted.

Meanwhile, the bill was introduced by AIPAC-funded senators Sen. Jacky Rosen (D-NV) and Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) back in April to silence criticism of Jews and Israel and police Americans' online speech. It would create a new national coordinator to counter antisemitism within the Executive Office of the President to "counter the spread of antisemitism online (i.e., government-coerced censorship), including to impose accountability for individuals."

"The Countering Antisemitism Act is the most far-reaching antisemitism initiative to be introduced in Congress," ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt said. "It offers a smart, bipartisan, whole-of-government and whole-of-society approach to combating this hatred and protecting Jews around the country."

The act was proposed because according to ADL, the U.S. Jewish community is facing the "worst crisis of antisemitism" in history. Apart from a national coordinator, the legislation will also establish an interagency task force to coordinate the implementation of federal strategies to counter antisemitism. ADL added that this would require the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Department of Homeland Security and National Counterterrorism Center to produce an annual threat assessment of antisemitic violent extremism. It will also assign someone from the Department of Education to advise and oversee efforts to counter antisemitic “discrimination” at colleges and universities. It would also formally designate May as "Jewish American Heritage Month."

Critics say that if the same bill were introduced but replaced "Jews" with "Whites" or "Christians" and demanded to police "anti-whiteism" and "anti-Christianism," eyebrows would raise at Congress. (Related: The Israel lobby is First Amendment’s “principal enemy,” former senior diplomat warns.)

Poll: Most Jews support Biden's re-election bid

President Joe Biden's all-out support of Israel's genocidal war in Gaza seems to not be wasted as he is now getting massive support from the so-called "chosen people of God."

According to a recent survey conducted by the American Jewish Committee (AJC) from March 12 to April 6, Jews are still backing Biden amid public opinion that the president's policies on Israel and Gaza could hurt him among Jewish voters.

The poll also suggested that Jews are increasingly concerned with the rising antisemitism in the U.S., especially since the Oct. 7 attacks on Israel, but trust Biden more than Trump to address it. It reflected that 61 percent would support Biden, 23 percent would support Trump and 10 percent would support "someone else." The results are similar to the share of respondents in the poll who say they voted for Biden in 2020 (64 percent) and who say they voted for Trump in 2020 (21 percent).

Moreover, 93 percent of the respondents say antisemitism in the U.S. is either a "serious problem" (56 percent) or "somewhat of a problem" (37 percent), with 7 percent saying it's not a problem.

Most Jews (87 percent) also say that "since the Hamas terrorist attacks on Israel on Oct. 7," they think antisemitism in the U.S. has "increased a lot" (55 percent) or has "increased somewhat" (33 percent). One percent said antisemitism has decreased and 12 percent say it stayed the same.

At the same time, American Jewish adults feel increasingly connected to Israel, with 85 percent saying they think it's important for the U.S. to support Israel and 57 percent saying they feel more connected to Israel or their Jewish identity since the attacks.

"Despite rising antisemitism making Jews feel less safe, American Jews are defiantly proud about who they are and even more connected to Israel," said AJC CEO Ted Deutch, a former member of Congress who left in 2022 to lead the nonpartisan global advocacy group for the Jewish people.

The poll also showed Biden enjoys a high approval rating (56 percent) for his overall job as president, with 24 percent approving "strongly" and 32 percent "somewhat." Forty percent disapprove, including 16 percent "somewhat" and 24 percent "strongly."

Asked about Biden's handling of the Israel-Hamas war, approval drops to 48 percent, with 13 percent "strongly" approving and 35 percent "somewhat" approving. Forty-three percent disapprove, including 20 percent "somewhat" and 23 percent "strongly."

The survey asked 1,001 Jewish adults and used a margin of error of plus or minus 3.9 percentage points.
