I Stand With IsraelA longtime conservative activist says Congress made a wise decision when it voted overwhelmingly to condemn the “BDS” movement.

With 398-to-17 vote, the House of Representatives passed a resolution denouncing the Boycott, Divest, and Sanctions movement against Israel.

The vote was a rejection of supporters of BDS such as Rep. Ilhan Omar and Rep. Rashida Tlaib.

Veteran conservative activist Gary Bauer, whose support of Israel dates back to the Reagan administration, says the BDS movement is anti-Semitic movement that aims to delegitimize and destroy Israel, the only Jewish state in the world.   

Bauer, Gary (American Values)“They're the last country that deserves that kind of treatment,” he says of Israel. “They're a loyal ally. They pay their own way. "

OneNewsNow reported in a July 24 story that Rep. Bradley Schneider introduced House Resolution 246 in support of Israel at the same time Rep. Omar introduced a resolution supporting BDS.

It’s ironic and shameful, Bauer tells OneNewsNow, to witness a lawmaker single out Israel when many other countries, such as North Korea, China, and Russia, deserve condemnation for their actions.
