The American Zionist Movement welcomes the release of the first-ever National Strategy to Counter Antisemitism by the White House. It is significant that such a strategy is being issued at the Presidential level, but also unfortunate that such a report and plan is necessary in our time. We hope that this will be an important vehicle for combating hatred directed at Jews and bias directed towards all.
AZM has a longstanding policy of endorsing the IHRA definition of antisemitism and we are heartened that the administration continues its support of the IHRA definition. As the convening body of Zionist organizations in the United States, we have increasingly seen that Anti-Zionism is currently one of the most prevalent forms of antisemitism in America and around the world. We see this report as a key governmental instrument to help us all fight Anti-Zionism and all forms of antisemitism.
