Important thread on report that @realDonaldTrump State Dept is considering labeling human rights groups "anti-Semitic" for reporting on Israeli-Palestinian conflict. This demeans the very notion of anti-Semitism – which meanwhile is rising on the right under this President. https://t.co/r5juDSaKjX

Mike Pompeo’s war on human rights groups is getting even uglier. https://t.co/JBbuv73hqs

Yet another attempt by the Trump administration to punish groups for messages that Trump doesn’t like.
By equating criticism of Israel with anti-Semitism, Pompeo aims to suppress and chill advocacy in support of Palestinian human rights.
This is dangerous and unconstitutional. https://t.co/QEdEcJ6LqQ
