"We thank Twitter for its decision to remove content that denies the reality of the Holocaust, as well as its unequivocal denunciation of antisemitism and hateful conduct.

We welcome the announcement by prosecutors at the Supreme Court of Pakistan that Ahmed Omar Sheikh, who was involved in the barbaric murder of American journalist Daniel Pearl z"l in 2002, will stay in jail while his case continues rather than go free.

We welcome the bipartisan introduction of House Resolution 1131, the 'Resolution to Stop Rewarding Terrorists,' which condemns the despicable Palestinian Authority “pay-to-slay” policy of incentivizing acts of terror against Israelis by financially compensating perpetrators and their families with so-called martyr payments. We applaud the sponsor of this resolution, Representative Josh Gottheimer (D-NJ), and its principal co-sponsors Representatives Tom Reed (R-NY) and Max Rose (D-NY).

We welcome the new US sanctions against Iran announced today that target the Iranian military and other entities involved with the regime's nuclear program, which it maintains in defiance of signed commitments and promises.
