Hoyer Seeks ‘Movement’ as House Weighs Senate-Passed Pro-Israel, Anti-BDS Bill

(JNS) U.S. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) said this week that he hopes to move along a U.S. Senate bill that passed earlier this month and that, if enacted, would impose fresh sanctions on Syria, boost security cooperation with Israel and Jordan, and allow state and local governments the right to punish state or local contractors from boycotting Israel.

The anti-BDS component of the legislation has divided Democrats.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) accused those on the other side of the aisle for making the U.S.-Israel relationship a single-party issue.

“There are people on the Republican side who are trying to make Israel a partisan issue,” he said. “When Israel becomes a partisan issue, it will lose ground.”
