House Passes Antisemitism Bill, Which Critics Blast as “Chilling”

HeadlineMay 02, 2024

As the crackdown on the student uprising intensifies, the House has passed a bill to widen the federal definition of antisemitism. Critics of the bill included Jerry Nadler, the most senior Jewish member of Congress and a strong supporter of Israel. Nadler said, “This bill threatens to chill constitutionally protected speech. Speech that is critical of Israel alone does not constitute discrimination. The bill sweeps too broadly.”
