RJC Celebrates the Passage of The Taylor Force Act in the Omnibus

Washington, D.C. (March 23, 2018) -- Today, the Republican Jewish Coalition released the following statement from National Chairman, Senator Norm Coleman:

The passage of the Taylor Force Act in the omnibus spending bill is an important and welcome step forward in the fight against terrorism. The RJC especially wants to thank Senators Lindsey Graham (SC), Mitch McConnell (KY), and Bob Corker (TN), House Speaker Paul Ryan, and Congressmen Doug Lamborn (CO-5), Lee Zeldin (NY-1), and Ed Royce (CA-39) for their principled leadership on this issue. The tireless work of Sander Gerber must also be acknowledged, without Sander, this day would not have been possible. We are proud to have worked hand-in-hand with all of them to cut aid to the PA while the PA continues its pay-for-slay policy. Paying terrorists and their families, as the PA has done with US taxpayer dollars, for murdering and injuring Americans and Israelis is an incentive to further violence that has to stop.
 
The Taylor Force Act was a top priority for the RJC. We are honored to have been the first group to publicly come out in support of it.

The RJC applauds President Trump’s terrific appointment of Ambassador John Bolton as his National Security Adviser effective April 9th, 2018.

RJC Calls on Seven Farrakhan-connected Members of Congress to Resign

Ties to Anti-Semitic Leader Should Not Be Tolerated

Washington D.C. (March 6, 2018) -- Today, in the wake of the news that seven members of Congress are connected to known anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan, the RJC released the following statement from Executive Director Matt Brooks:

Seven long-serving Democrats have close ties with Louis Farrakhan. Each of them should resign.

They include former Nation of Islam employee, Congressman Keith Ellison, who is Deputy Chair of the DNC. Ellison has tried to excuse his 2013 meeting with Farrakhan, while ignoring his more recent meeting with the NOI leader in Farrakhan’s hotel room, in 2015. At least six other Democrats are known to have embraced Farrakhan. These members of Congress - Maxine Waters, Barbara Lee, Danny Davis, Andre Carson, Gregory Meeks, and Al Green - have all, while in office, sat down with Farrakhan for personal meetings.

There can be no question about how abhorrent it is for these Democrats to be connected to Louis Farrakhan. Farrakhan is first and foremost a preacher of hate. He preaches about Jewish “control” over the government and media and has claimed to have “pulled a cover off of that Satanic Jew,” saying “your time is up, your world is through.” And those were just the comments from last week.

Anti-Semitism is unacceptable. Farrakhan is the moral equivalent of a leader of the KKK. If it was discovered that members of Congress had met with the leader of the KKK, they would need to resign. In this case, for meeting with, and embracing, Louis Farrakhan, nothing short of resignation is acceptable from these seven Democrats.
