State Department Updates Anti-Semitism Definition
Follows House vote in opposition to Israel boycott
The State Department has revised its definition of anti-Semitism. The prior definition issued in May listed ten examples. The revised definition has added another example that says anti-Semitism now includes “drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis.”
The action of the State Department follows last month’s overwhelming bipartisan 398-17 vote in the House of Representatives to oppose an international effort to boycott Israel.
