House of Representatives Passes Antisemitism Bill in Response to Campus Protests

The US House of Representatives passed an antisemitism awareness bill sponsored by a New York Republican amidst pro-Palestinian protests on college campuses. The bill, with bipartisan support, aims to enforce federal anti-discrimination laws regarding antisemitism. However, Democrats viewed it as a political move by Republicans. Critics, such as the ACLU and FMEP, expressed concerns about chilling free speech and the politicization of the definition of antisemitism. The debate highlighted the need to protect Jewish students from harassment on college campuses and the divide between Republicans and Democrats on this issue.
