Senate no place for hatred of U.S. ally Israel

Israeli flag superimposed on U.S. flagA pro-Israel advocate says it's unfortunate that a bill aimed at stopping boycotts against Israel is stalled in the Senate.

Senator Marco Rubio (R-Florida) has introduced the "Combating BDS Act," which seeks to counter the global Boycott, Divest and Sanctions movement against Israel over its treatment of Palestinians and the settlements. S. 170 comes amid the partial government shutdown, and Democrats say they will block it until government is reopened.

But while the legislation is stalled, it does have some bipartisan support as Democratic Senator Joe Manchin (West Virginia) pointed out on the Fox News Channel that he is a co-sponsor of the bill.

"We don't have a better ally than Israel. We've never had a better ally," the Democratic lawmaker stated. "We don't have a better economic trading partner than Israel. And basically anti-Semitism cannot be tolerated in any way shape or form – and I'm going to defend Israel every way, every time I can."

Cardoza-Moore

Laurie Cardoza-Moore, resident of Proclaiming Justice to the Nations, finds the lack of support for Rubio's bill outrageous.

"This is the mentality of these people: They hate Israel," she says bluntly. "Actually it's anti-Semitic; they hate the Jews – and for them to support boycotting, divesting, [and] sanctioning Israel for crimes it has not done is outrageous."

But Cardoza-Moore expects this to become "the new normal" in Washington, DC.
