NADLER STATEMENT ON SOUTH AFRICA'S CASE AGAINST ISRAEL AT THE INTERNATIONAL COURT OF JUSTICE

| Posted in Press Releases

Last week, the Republic of South Africa argued before the International Court of Justice that Israel’s military actions in Gaza violate the international prohibition on genocide.  I unequivocally reject this charge, and I expect the ICJ to do the same. The Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide was ratified by the United Nations in 1948.  It rose…

| Posted in Press Releases

“Today’s Resolution, authored by Representatives Kustoff and Miller and backed by Republican leadership, is just the latest unserious attempt by Republicans to weaponize Jewish pain and the serious problem of antisemitism to score cheap political points.

Nadler Floor Statement on H.R. 6126 – Israel Security Supplemental Appropriations Act

| Posted in Floor Statements

M. Speaker, I rise in strong opposition to this bill, which conditions emergency, essential aid to Israel on cuts to the domestic budget. The majority is attempting to divide Congress for purely partisan gain. It is despicable. I stand here as a proud progressive Zionist. Support for Israel is built into my DNA. I was horrified by the events of October 7th. It was a traumatic moment for…

My office is working with both the U.S. and Israeli governments to help…
