US Progressives To Boycott Israeli Leader’s Visit To Congress


Democratic Representative Cori Bush is the latest US Congressional Progressive Caucus member to join the boycott of the upcoming speech by Israeli President Isaac Herzog. 

“The Israeli government is responsible for enforcing an apartheid state and rampantly abusing the rights of Palestinians,” Bush wrote on Twitter on Friday. She insisted that Congress “should not be giving a platform to the President of a country that shows no respect for human rights.”

Herzog will visit the White House on July 18 and address Congress the next day in honor of Israel’s 75th anniversary. The Israeli president was formally invited last year by Congress leadership.
