House approves resolution condemning anti-Semitism

The U.S. House of Representatives voted 407-23 on Thursday to approve a broad resolution condemning anti-Semitism, anti-Muslim discrimination and other forms of bigotry that should be "condemned when it is heard," Speaker Nancy Pelosi said.

The resolution came less than a week after Representative Ilhan Omar, one of the first Muslim women elected to Congress, made statements at a Washington event that were denounced by some as anti-Semitic.

House approves resolution condemning anti-Semitism

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: A debate within the Democratic Party over charges that one of its U.S. House of Representatives lawmakers made anti-Semitic remarks has exposed an ideological and generational rift in the party, prompting a vote condemning bigotry against minorities.

Some Democrats, including several U.S. senators who are seeking the party's 2020 presidential nomination, warned party leaders were playing into Republicans' hands and had stymied legitimate debate over U.S.-Israel policy.

The House, which is controlled by Democrats, voted 407-23 on Thursday to approve a broad resolution condemning anti-Semitism, anti-Muslim discrimination and other forms of bigotry.

The vote came less than a week after Representative Ilhan Omar, one of the first Muslim women elected to Congress, made statements at a Washington event that were denounced by some as anti-Semitic.
