A solid number of countries blasted the recommendation and stood strong in solidarity with the Jewish people!
On Monday, United Nations special rapporteur on racism E. Tendayi Achiume, called for the General Assembly to suspend the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition of antisemitism.
The working definition has been adopted by many countries and has empowered many to address this rise in hate and discrimination at their national levels.
Thankfully, a solid number of countries blasted the recommendation and stood strong in solidarity with the Jewish people!
Most of the countries in the room joined us in rejecting the the brazen and ridiculous statement of the rapporteur. Listen as the 🇺🇸🇮🇹🇬🇧🇨🇦🇭🇺 refuse to dismiss the IHRA definition of antisemitism. We applaud these nations and the many others that stood with the Jewish people today pic.twitter.com/k59jyNTjaq
