I was proud to be a cosponsor of two bills the House passed expressing strong concerns about anti-Semitic and anti-Israel sentiments this week. As a nation, we must always remain vigilant in our fight to counter anti-Semitism, and I am proud to stand up in support of the Jewish community in Israel and across the world.

The House of Representatives passed two resolutions this week condemning European anti-Semitism and violence against innocent civilians in Israel. U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23) released the following statement:
"I was proud to be a cosponsor of two bills the House passed expressing strong concerns about anti-Semitic and anti-Israel sentiments this week.
"H.Res.293 expresses the House’s concern over anti-Israel and anti-Semitic incitement within the Palestinian Authority. As the tragic violence in Israel continues against innocent Jewish Israelis, we must stand firm in the face of terrorism and incitement towards violence. I join my colleagues in calling on President Mahmoud Abbas to take immediate concrete steps to restore peace and return to a path towards a two-state solution.
"H.Res.354 turns our attention to our Jewish brothers and sisters in Europe, who have faced an alarming rise in anti-Semitism throughout the region. This bill offers support to not only the Jewish communities in Europe, but also to those agencies, bodies and people who help counter anti-Semitism and hatred. 
"As a nation, we must always remain vigilant in our fight to counter anti-Semitism, and I am proud to stand up in support of the Jewish community in Israel and across the world."
