Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Stefanik released the following statement after the House passage of Representative Pfluger’s resolution condemning anti-Semitism and supporting the State of Israel:

“Today I voted to condemn anti-Semitism and express my unequivocal support for the State of Israel - America’s closest and most critical ally and friend. In light of the vile and widespread anti-Semitic comments made by numerous prominent Democrats in the House, the passage of this resolution demonstrates that House Republicans are united in standing with Israel. For 75 years, Israel has represented democracy and freedom. I proudly stand with my colleagues to condemn anti-Semitic and anti-Israel statements that have no place in our national rhetoric.”

The Resolution rejects the notion that Israel is a racist, apartheid state, rejects all forms of anti-Semitism and xenophobia, and declares that the United States will always be a staunch partner and supporter of Israel.
