Write your congressperson opposing the Anti-Semitism Awareness Act of 2018 introduced yesterday

THIS  DANGEROUS  US CONGRESS BILL CONFLATES CRITICISM OF iSRAEL WITH ANTI-SEMITISM and has the support of both major parties. Some of its exact language is as follows:

A Bill to provide for the consideration of a definition of anti-Semitism for the enforcement of Federal anti-discrimination laws concerning education programs or activities.

(D)iscrimination against Jews, Muslims, Sikhs, and members of other groups violates Title VI when that discrimination is based on the group’s actual or perceived shared ancestry or ethnic characteristics’.

The 2010 Dear Colleague letter cautioned schools that they ‘‘must take prompt and effective steps reasonably calculated to end the harassment, eliminate any hostile environment, and its effects, and prevent the harassment from recurring,’’ but did not provide guidance on current manifestations of anti-Semitism, including discriminatory anti-Semitic conduct that is couched as anti-Israel or anti-Zionist.

The definition and examples referred to in paragraphs (1) and (2) of section 3 have been valuable tools to help identify contemporary manifestations of anti-Semitism, and include useful examples of discriminatory anti-Israel conduct that crosses the line into anti-Semitism.

Awareness of this definition of anti-Semitism will increase understanding of the parameters of contemporary anti-Jewish conduct and will assist the Department of Education in determining whether an investigation of anti-Semitism under title VI is warranted.

Added at bottom of Bill:

CONSTITUTIONAL PROTECTIONS.—Nothing in this Act shall be construed to diminish or infringe upon any right protected under the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. [Sure, they say this but then ignore it and our right to free speech and voicing our opinion becomes secondary to legal protections enacted to protect a foreign country -cy]

The Arab-American Institute provides a good summary and the reasons why this bill should be opposed. Here is a sample message I have composed that you can use when you write your Congressperson. Just search his/her name and their official .gov website will come up,  and look for "Contact".

Dear [your member of Congress],

As a concerned constituent, I urge you to oppose the Anti-Semitism Awareness Act of 2018. This bill uses a working definition of anti-Semitism from the State Department, written exclusively for data collection in Europe, and applies it in domestic settings of schools and college campuses. It seeks to expand the definition of Title VI protections to include criticism of Israel. This would threaten our free speech guarantee.

I respectfully urge you to oppose all legislation that would harm our First Amendment rights. It is wrong to give in to a specific ethnic group's perceived needs by infringing on the Constitutional rights of all.

Germans need to wake up and take control of their own country.

What is to stop Germany from declaring sovereignty?

You wrote this to the wrong post, Bill. But instead of advising Germans to "take control" of their country, Americans need to advise themselves.

Some answers to your questions have been added in the comments to the previous post.

Thanks Carolyn for addressing this probably most-important issue facing the US - because it is subversive, and we know the direction this is headed. No amount of threatening, warning or civilized explanation will sway them from their wish to achieve the 2nd 1917 - right here in the good 'ole US of A!
I don't believe anything can be done to stop them, especially with the SC bill patterned after the State Department definition of racisim guaranteed to be implememted July 1 and directed specifically at shcool children. We - meaning the US - have entered upon the Slippery Slope and there is no turning back.
 
They know better, and the response to all  reasoned requests is cocking their snoots, as usual. I would say it's justified they should no longer be allowed to live on the planet, however it is us who will be removed.

... it is the most important. Jews are engaged in making the world a safe place for Jews no matter how unsafe it becomes for non-Jews. That's the bottom line. They justify that with their religious laws that declare them to be the most important and valuable for mankind.

Nationalism and ethnic identity are not seen as good for Diaspora Jews because such nations can decide to make laws restricting Jewish influence and wealth in a variety of ways. No matter how many Israels there might be, Jews still want the whole world for themselves to exploit. Beating the drum of antisemitism is how they've done it in the West, taking advantage of our sense of fairness and deep abhorence of uncivilized behavior.

Today, we live in a culture operating according to the Jews' preferences. Our populations are breaking down, losing cohesiveness. Most people are happy with what we have -- until law and order breaks down, then even the most dense will finally see what has been wronght to their detriment. That's why the brightest among us say "Awake!" -- what else can be said?

anti-GENTILISM is the problem. Cavemen did not sit around their caves:
GROK: "HEY, me hate Jews."
HORG: "What a Jew?"
GROK: "Me not know .... but me hate"
HORG: " We wait for Jew to come so we be mean to him"
Then non-Jews sat for tens of thousands of years waiting, waiting, waiting, for a Jew to come along, so we could all be mean for no reason. Sorry, what happened was Jews created a social system of Xenophobic Tribalism (look it up) wherein THEY hate all NON-Jews, and this hate of all non-Tribe members has, naturally, caused People to not like them.
anti-semitic ... that's what they called Jesus of Nazareth in the Galilee ... JUDAS ISCARIOT was a JEW beloved by the Temple Priests.
Judaism is neither a race or a religion, it is Xenophobic Tribalism.
XENOPHOBIC: n.A person unduly fearful or contemptuous of that which is foreign, especially of strangers or foreign peoples.
TRIBALISM: n. 1. The organization, culture, or beliefs of a tribe. 2. A strong feeling of identity with and loyalty to one's tribe or group.Quick summation? They are the enemy of anyone who is not a TRIBAL MEMBER ...... and only "tolerate" Gentiles.
The World should insist Israel live by the standards Israel demands of others. Be judged as Ye judge others. If Israel wants to be recognized, Israel must recognize the EQUALITY and HUMANITY of ALL People. Quit calling NON-Jews SHISKA, GOYIM, GENTILE. If Israel wants Hamas to 'repudiate' their charter, Israel must REPUDIATE their manual of hate, the TORAH, which openly proclaims that all 'gentiles' should be 'Hewers of wood, and bearers of water' ........ for Israel.
 
Israel must recognize the Native People's RIGHT to a Palestinian state.
Israel REFUSES to sign the Non Proliferation Treaty or open It's NUKES to inspection, Israel should have the exact same sanctions that were put on Iran.
