Schumer: Anti-Zionism is Antisemitism

6

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer warmly applauded French President Emmanuel Macron’s declaration that anti-Zionism is antisemitism in a Senate floor speech on Monday.

“I’d like to applaud the French President Emmanuel Macron for his comments over the weekend about antisemitism,” Schumer said. “‘We will yield nothing to anti-Zionism,’ he said, ‘because it is the reinvented form of antisemitism.’”

Schumer continued: “He is absolutely right.”

Schumer explained that “antisemitism is a word that has been used throughout history when Jewish people are judged and measured by one standard and the rest by another.”

“So it is with anti-Zionism; the idea that all other peoples can seek and defend their right to self-determination but Jews cannot,” he said. “That other nations have a right to exist, but the Jewish state of Israel does not.”

Schumer blasted the BDS campaign targeting Israel as a “pernicious effort to delegitimize Israel through boycotts, divestment, and sanctions” that fits Macron’s definition of a “reinvented form of antisemitism because it seeks to impose boycotts on Israel and not on any other nation.”

The New York Democrat expressed hope that “states across the country continue to push back against the BDS movement, by boycotting the boycotters, as my home state of New York has done.”

  1. What a phony!! Your party is full of raging anti-semites and you do nothing to oust them. Just look at the deputy of the DNC Keith X Ellison…..

  2. Schumer has lost all credibility. It’s easy to say no to Trump’s proposals because of personal animosity (Trump called him a lightweight) but it gets funny when whatever Trump says you can immediately expect a no from Schumer with no offer of a better plan. He’s not interested in governing only stands in the way. Naturally no one of consequence will listen to his statements on anti-Semitism.

  3. People keep on complaining about Schumer and people don’t realize that you can give him term limit by not voting for him anymore. If people hate him that much don’t vote for him anymore, he does not have kingship and it is not a birth to death position, unless the people who vote for him are getting something back??? That is another story or his position is not ethically achieved??? Maybe Schumer’s election should be investigated.

  4. people have you ever heard of term limits, it is called not voting for the person anymore. If people are so tired of Mr. Schumer don’t vote for him anymore. Congress is not a birth to death decree, just don’t vote for him anymore and he has an automatic term limit.

  5. Schumer only voted against the Iran deal after the Dems sured up enough votes to pass it. Unti that time he claimed to be weighing the sides….He is an enemy of the Jews.

  6. Equating anti-Zionism with anti-Semitism is both false and unethical. It hijacks the right of non-Zionist and anti-Zionist Jews to freely define their political identity, labels them with a political ideology they reject and casts doubt on their allegiance to their countries.
