We are disappointed to see @RepTedDeutch advocating for a definition of antisemitism that has been used to curb the free speech of Palestinians and their allies — and which the American Jewish community is deeply divided over. (THREAD)
Replying to @emilyfmayer: When self-appointed Jewish leaders use their positions of power to equate people who critique Israeli policies with Nazis…
.@RepTedDeutch claims that SNL’s joke is antisemitic, making it clear that he — like the self-appointed leaders pushing IHRA — is out of touch.
False accusations like this cause us to lose focus on the violent antisemitism from racist extremists that puts us all in danger.
CAM is honored to present the Global Leadership Award to @mikepompeo. The former Secretary of State was chosen for his exceptional contributions to the fight against anti-Semitism.
Tune in now for an exclusive interview with the former Secretary of State.
.@RepTedDeutch's comments are even more shocking when you realize who he made them to: @CombatASemitism, which honored philosemite Mike Pompeo — of all people! — today with a Global Leadership Award for his fight against antisemitism.
Let's be clear: The IHRA working definition of antisemitism is a tool of the far-right, and does nothing to keep our community any safer from rising extremism.
Time and time again, IHRA is used to attack college activists and academics for criticizing the Israeli government.
Over the weekend, Pompeo addressed CPAC standing on a stage in shape of a Nazi symbol.
Today, he’s honored for “exceptional” contributions in fighting antisemitism — which consisted of promoting Greater Israel & normalizing fetishized love of Israel/Jews that is philosemitism.
When SNL made an accurate joke about inequality in Israel, @JGreenblattADL reached out personally to Lorne Michaels to urge him to repair the damage done.
When a Republican Congressman meets with a Nazi-sympathizing holocaust denier, @JGreenblattADL tagged him on twitter.
“Vaccinating only those Palestinians who come in contact w Israelis reinforces that to Israeli authorities Palestinian life only matters to extent it affects Jewish life." My comment on plan to vaccinate Palestinian workers, not rest of occupied population
Here's my story about Rep. Paul Gosar and his decision to speak at the far-right America First conference, where the group's founder laid out white supremacist views. Gosar on why he went at all:
Jewish orgs and leaders spent something like a week straight debating and discussing a joke on SNL about the state of Israel, while the only large mainstream organization to even say a word about this was the ADL.
All you need to know about supposed communal Jewish leadership.
Kentucky becomes first U.S. state to adopt IHRA antisemitism definition
According to @splcenter there are 13 hate groups — including neo-Nazi orgs — active in Kentucky. If Kentucky politicians really wanted to make Jews safer, they would spend their time crafting strategies that would shut these groups down, not shut down criticism of Israeli policy.
The American Jewish community stands in solidarity against the horrific violence our Asian-American allies are facing as a result of nationalist rhetoric by divisive politicians that has also led to a rise of antisemitism.

This is the most important Biden appointee you've never heard of.
It's a new era, we need a new envoy who will fight antisemitism with integrity — not someone like Abe Foxman who cares more about protecting the Israeli government than fighting racist extremists. #NewEraNewEnvoy
