In the meantime, Jewish lawmakers are laser focused on a resolution that would explicitly denounce the BDS movement and call for a two-state solution to the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian resolution.

The bill cites the First Amendment, the Boston Tea Party and boycotts against Nazi Germany to support its cause.

Wednesday night on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin tore into Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., for her anti-Israel remarks at a meeting of the House Foreign Affairs Committee earlier that day.

Earlier this week, Ms. Omar, a vocal critic of the Israeli government and BDS advocate, introduced a resolution that would affirm "Americans have the right to participate in boycotts in pursuit of civil and human rights at home and overseas".

The nonviolent BDS movement says it is inspired by the campaign that targeted South Africa's apartheid regime and is seeking put an end to Israel's brutal occupation of the West Bank.

However, a co-founder of the BDS movement, Omar Barghouti, has made it clear his aim is the elimination of the Jewish state.

U.S. Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) followed Omar at the podium and urged his fellow lawmakers not to deny their "duty to be honest brokers..."

"Americans of conscience have a proud history of participating in boycotts to advocate for human rights overseas, including ... boycotting Nazi Germany from March 1933 to October 1941 in response to the dehumanization of the Jewish people in the lead-up to the Holocaust", the resolution continues.

The House also passed a non-binding resolution in March condemning anti-Semitism and Islamophobia in response to Omar's suggestions that support for Israel was "all about the Benjamins".

"The BDS Movement promotes principles of collective guilt, mass punishment, and group isolation, which are destructive of prospects for progress towards peace and a two-state solution", it reads.

Tlaib tweeted last week that the resolution was designed "to silence opposition of Israel's blatantly racist policies that demonize both Palestinians & Ethiopians".

In the motion, the first two Muslim congresswomen "urge Congress, States, and civil rights leaders from all communities to endeavour to preserve the freedom of advocacy for all by opposing anti-boycott resolutions and legislation".
