TEL AVIV In the wake of Rep. Ilhan Omars comments likening the anti-Israel BDS movement to boycotts of Nazi Germany, the US State Department has updated its definition of antisemitism to include drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis.
The State Departments definition of antisemitism includes most of the points outlined by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA)s own definition.
Criminal acts are antisemitic when the targets of attacks, whether they are people or property such as buildings, schools, places of worship and cemeteries are selected because they are, or are perceived to be, Jewish or linked to Jews, the State Departments website reads.
Antisemitic discrimination is the denial to Jews of opportunities or services available to others and is illegal in many countries, it continues.

Of questionable domestic significance, but should anything connected to this find it's way to a court in the US, as in support of a charge of religious bias, I doubt it will hold up. In the context of international relations, which is what State does, it's a significant statement.
