Cox calls on Democrats to condemn anti-Semitism

ALBANY – The U.S. House of Representatives yesterday passed a resolution in support of the state of Israel following comments made by Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) that Israel is a “racist state.” Nine Democrats voted against the resolution, including Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortes and Jamaal Bowman of New York.

NYGOP Chair Ed Cox released the following statement in response:

“I call upon Kathy Hochul, Jay Jacobs, Hakeem Jeffries, Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand to take a clear and unambiguous stand against anti-Semitism in their own party and condemn in the strongest terms possible Reps. Bowman and Ocasio-Cortez’s heinous votes.

“Andrea Stewart-Cousins and Shelley Meyer live in Jamaal Bowman’s district. Michael Gianaris lives in Ocasio-Cortez’s district. Do they have anything to say? Or like New York’s other Democratic leaders, will they continue to put politics over decency?”
