A bill to create a State Department office to monitor international anti-Semitism passed the U.S. Congress. The Global Anti-Semitism Awareness/Review Act passed the House of Representatives on Sunday, five months after the bill was cleared by the Senate. The act, which awaits President Bush’s approval, requires the State Department to create an office to monitor and combat anti-Semitism, and to file a report on anti-Semitic incidents around the world.
