Anti-Palestinian Definition of Anti-Semitism Fails in U.S., Adopted in the UK

Though it was adopted without any opposition in the Senate the so-called "Anti-Semitism Awareness Act" was thankfully not brought up in the House and has failed at least this year. Without opposition in the Senate seems to mean Bernie Sanders voted for it. TSVN called his office and was told to email his press spokesperson. That was done twice...no answer.

However, in the U.K. Theresa May's government has adopted this definition of Anti-Semitism "–Accusing Jewish citizens of being more loyal to Israel, or to the alleged priorities of Jews worldwide, than to the interests of their own nations. – 1) Denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination, e.g., by claiming that the existence of a State of Israel is a racist endeavor. – 2) Applying double standards by requiring of it a behavior not expected or demanded of any other democratic nation. – 3) Using the symbols and images associated with classic antisemitism (e.g., claims of Jews killing Jesus or blood libel) 4) to characterize Israel or Israelis. – 5) Drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis. – 6) Holding Jews collectively responsible for actions of the state of Israel." #3 OK, most of the rest is crap and dangerous.
