Does the H.R. 6090 bill, also called “The Antisemitism Awareness Act of 2023”, BAN THE BIBLE?

What is REALLY Going On?


H. R. 6090


To provide for the consideration of a definition of antisemitism set forth by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance for the enforcement of Federal antidiscrimination laws concerning education programs or activities, and for other purposes.
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,


This Act may be cited as the ‘‘Antisemitism Aware3 ness Act of 2023’’.


It is the sense of Congress that—

(1) title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (42 U.S.C. 2000d et seq.), prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, and national origin in programs and activities receiving Federal financial assistance;
(2) while such title does not cover discrimination based solely on religion, individuals who face discrimination based on actual or perceived shared ancestry or ethnic characteristics do not lose protection under such title for also being members of a group that share a common religion;
(3) discrimination against Jews may give rise to a violation of such title when the discrimination is based on race, color, or national origin, which can include discrimination based on actual or perceived shared ancestry or ethnic characteristics;
(4) it is the policy of the United States to enforce such title against prohibited forms of discrimination rooted in antisemitism as vigorously as against all other forms of discrimination prohibited by such title; and
(5) as noted in the U.S. National Strategy to Counter Antisemitism issued by the White House on May 25, 2023, it is critical to—
(A) increase awareness and understanding of antisemitism, including its threat to America;
(B) improve safety and security for Jewish communities;
(C) reverse the normalization of antisemitism and counter antisemitic discrimination; and
(D) expand communication and collaboration between communities.


Congress finds the following:

(1) Antisemitism is on the rise in the United States and is impacting Jewish students in K–12 schools, colleges, and universities.
(2) The International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (referred to in this Act as the ‘‘IHRA’’) Working Definition of Antisemitism is a vital tool which helps individuals understand and identify the various manifestations of antisemitism.
(3) On December 11, 2019, Executive Order 13899 extended protections against discrimination under the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to individuals subjected to antisemitism on college and university campuses and tasked Federal agencies to consider the IHRA Working Definition of Antisemitism when enforcing title VI of such Act.
(4) Since 2018, the Department of Education has used the IHRA Working Definition of Antisemitism when investigating violations of that title VI.
(5) The use of alternative definitions of antisemitism impairs enforcement efforts by adding multiple standards and may fail to identify many of the modern manifestations of antisemitism.
(6) The White House released the first-ever United States National Strategy to Counter Antisemitism on May 25, 2023, making clear that the fight against this hate is a national, bipartisan priority that must be successfully conducted through a whole-of-government-and-society approach.


For purposes of this Act, the term ‘‘definition of antisemitism’’—

(1) means the definition of antisemitism adopted on May 26, 2016, by the IHRA, of which the United States is a member, which definition has been adopted by the Department of State; and
(2) includes the ‘‘[c]ontemporary examples of antisemitism’’ identified in the IHRA definition.


In reviewing, investigating, or deciding whether there has been a violation of title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (42 U.S.C. 2000d et seq.) on the basis of race, color, or national origin, based on an individual’s actual or perceived shared Jewish ancestry or Jewish ethnic characteristics, the Department of Education shall take into consideration the definition of antisemitism as part of the Department’s assessment of whether the practice was motivated by antisemitic intent.


(a) GENERAL RULE OF CONSTRUCTION.—Nothing in this Act shall be construed—
(1) to expand the authority of the Secretary of Education;
(2) to alter the standards pursuant to which the Department of Education makes a determination that harassing conduct amounts to actionable discrimination; or
(3) to diminish or infringe upon the rights protected under any other provision of law that is in effect as of the date of enactment of this Act.
(b) CONSTITUTIONAL PROTECTIONS.—Nothing in this Act shall be construed to diminish or infringe upon any right protected under the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.

Passed the House of Representatives May 1, 2024.


So what is the “working definition” “…to provide for the consideration of a definition of antisemitism set forth by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance”?

From their website, the article titled “working definition of Antisemitism” – found here –, they say this:

In the spirit of the Stockholm Declaration that states: “With humanity still scarred by …antisemitism and xenophobia the international community shares a solemn responsibility to fight those evils” the committee on Antisemitism and Holocaust Denial called the IHRA Plenary in Budapest 2015 to adopt the following working definition of antisemitism.

On 26 May 2016, the Plenary in Bucharest decided to:

Adopt the following non-legally binding working definition of antisemitism:

“Antisemitism is a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of antisemitism are directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property, toward Jewish community institutions and religious facilities.”

To guide IHRA in its work, the following examples may serve as illustrations:

Manifestations might include the targeting of the state of Israel, conceived as a Jewish collectivity. However, criticism of Israel similar to that leveled against any other country cannot be regarded as antisemitic. Antisemitism frequently charges Jews with conspiring to harm humanity, and it is often used to blame Jews for “why things go wrong.” It is expressed in speech, writing, visual forms and action, and employs sinister stereotypes and negative character traits.

Contemporary examples of antisemitism in public life, the media, schools, the workplace, and in the religious sphere could, taking into account the overall context, include, but are not limited to:

  • Calling for, aiding, or justifying the killing or harming of Jews in the name of a radical ideology or an extremist view of religion.
  • Making mendacious, dehumanizing, demonizing, or stereotypical allegations about Jews as such or the power of Jews as collective — such as, especially but not exclusively, the myth about a world Jewish conspiracy or of Jews controlling the media, economy, government or other societal institutions.
  • Accusing Jews as a people of being responsible for real or imagined wrongdoing committed by a single Jewish person or group, or even for acts committed by non- Jews.
  • Denying the fact, scope, mechanisms (e.g. gas chambers) or intentionality of the genocide of the Jewish people at the hands of National Socialist Germany and its supporters and accomplices during World War II (the Holocaust).
  • Accusing the Jews as a people, or Israel as a state, of inventing or exaggerating the Holocaust.
  • Accusing Jewish citizens of being more loyal to Israel, or to the alleged priorities of Jews worldwide, than to the interests of their own nations.
  • Denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination, e.g., by claiming that the existence of a State of Israel is a racist endeavor.
  • Applying double standards by requiring of it a behavior not expected or demanded of any other democratic nation.
  • Using the symbols and images associated with classic antisemitism (e.g., claims of Jews killing Jesus or blood libel) to characterize Israel or Israelis.
  • Drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis.
  • Holding Jews collectively responsible for actions of the state of Israel.
    Antisemitic acts are criminal when they are so defined by law (for example, denial of the Holocaust or distribution of antisemitic materials in some countries).

    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.
    Antisemitic discrimination is the denial to Jews of opportunities or services available to others and is illegal in many countries.

    (End of article)

I have again seen many videos from creators on TikTok saying that this definition says it’s against the Bible. let’s re-read the section they use.

  • Using the symbols and images associated with classic antisemitism (e.g., claims of Jews killing Jesus or blood libel) to characterize Israel or Israelis.(end quote) 

And reading it in context of the FULL definition, it means to criminalize those who perform hate crimes against Jewish people. By using the Bible to attack the Jewish people.

This bill was in response to the many riots and “protests” around the nation saying “Death to Israel” or “death to jews” etc, etc. AGAIN, does it ban the Bible?

From context, it bans USING THE BIBLE to attack the Jewish people. What put to death Jesus Christ? A race of people? Or was it OUR SINS that caused him to be sent and divest of Himself Godship to PAY THE PENALTY OF OUR SINS?

Who of us stands and say “we have no sin”… “It’s the Jews fault!”?

What did Jesus Christ through the Apostle John say?

1Jn 1:8  If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 
1Jn 1:9  If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 
1Jn 1:10  If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. 

IT IS OUR SINS that put Jesus Christ on the Cross! Not just the Jews, but YOUR OWN SINS! MY SINS! WE ARE ALL GUILTY OF THIS! But…. He paid our penalty for sinning!

Rom 1:16  For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. 

Rom 2:1  Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man(to ALL HUmans), whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things. 
Rom 2:2  But we are sure that the judgment of God is according to truth against them which commit such things. 
Rom 2:3  And thinkest thou this, O man, that judgest them which do such things, and doest the same, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God? 
Rom 2:4  Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance? 
Rom 2:5  But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God; 
Rom 2:6  Who will render to every man according to his deeds: 
Rom 2:7  To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life: 
Rom 2:8  But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath, 
Rom 2:9  Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile; 
Rom 2:10  But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile: 
Rom 2:11  For there is no respect of persons with God.

To use the Word of God to attack the Jewish people, or to any other race of a matter of fact, is wrong, and CONTRARY to THE WORD OF GOD. Jesus Christ was born a Jew. He kept the Sabbath and the Annual Holy Days and Festivals. And He did so because His Father told Him to.

Joh_10:25  Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father’s name, they bear witness of me.
Joh_10:32  Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?
Joh_10:37  If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not.

Christ did WORKS! By doing what His Father did!

The Church of God is a JEWISH BODY(Because Christ was physically Born a Jew), but God’s Law was not JEWISH! It applies to ALL MANKIND! Because ALL have sinned!

Rom_3:23  For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

1Co 12:27  Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.

Christ became a Jew to Bring the Jewish people to Salvation FIRST, then the Gentiles were grafted in (Romans 11). He was not being exclusive. To say “we don’t have to keep the Seventh Day Sabbath”, but… Jesus Christ kept the Sabbath, and was LORD of the Sabbath. The Sabbath was made FOR MAN! It does not say “the Jews”. For ALL MANKIND! He kept the Holy Days too. Those good works he shewed from God the Father to us. GOOD WORKS are keeping God’s commandments and laws.

But, are we professing we KNOW GOD, better than Jesus Christ?

Are we doing the GOOD WORKS of Jesus Christ? Doing what He did? Believing what HE was sent with?

Titus 1:16  They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate. 

So using The Word of God(AKA Jesus Christ in Print – John 1:1-3,14) against the Jewish people, laying all of the blame on them for the crucification of our Savior, is denying Jesus Christ. We need to look at ourselves, and the SINS WE COMMITT!

Mat 10:33  But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven. 

2Ti 2:12  If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us: 
2Ti 2:13  If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself. 

Are we performing this GREAT SIN? Saying what put to death our savior, was only the jews? YET, there are some who shout at the campuses of The United States “Death to the Jews” and “Death to Israel”.

Psa 83:4  They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. 
Psa 83:5  For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee: 
Psa 83:6  The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes; 
Psa 83:7  Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre; 
Psa 83:8  Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah. 
Psa 83:9  Do unto them as unto the Midianites; as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the brook of Kison: 
Psa 83:10  Which perished at Endor: they became as dung for the earth. 
Psa 83:11  Make their nobles like Oreb, and like Zeeb: yea, all their princes as Zebah, and as Zalmunna: 
Psa 83:12  Who said, Let us take to ourselves the houses of God in possession. 
Psa 83:13  O my God, make them like a wheel; as the stubble before the wind. 
Psa 83:14  As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire; 
Psa 83:15  So persecute them with thy tempest, and make them afraid with thy storm. 
Psa 83:16  Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O LORD. 
Psa 83:17  Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish: 
Psa 83:18  That men may know that thou, whose name alone is THE ETERNAL, art the most high over all the earth.
