1) The language of the GOP's amendment explicitly wraps together under "antisemitism in all it's forms" the use of tropes like Omar used a few days ago and also any form of boycotting Israel or anti-Israel sentiment. It's not Jews doing it, but Jews will be perceived as doing it
It is the goyish GOP, not Jewish people, who are EXPLICITLY equating anti-Israeli sentiment with antisemitism. But that doesn't matter. In one vote, the GOP have boxed the whole thing up in the false perception that Jewish people equate "anti-Zionism" with antisemitism.
2) The non-Jew President, the non-Jew Vice President and the non-Jew House GOP are going nuclear on Omar's comment. The backlash is WAY out of proportion. They're doing this all on their own - but it feeds the perception that Jews/Israel have disproportionate influence
3) The amendment doesn't actually *do* anything. It's completely empty rhetoric, designed to shame a Democratic Congresswoman. It does nothing to address Jewish concerns, and will likely make American Jews LESS safe. It's antisemitic as hell to use Jews as weapons.
