- The State Department renewed opposition to legislation
adopted by Congress that would require it to create a special office to
monitor anti-Semitism around the world and issue annual reports rating
countries on their treatment of Jews.
- Spokesman Richard Boucher said the bill -- which must
still be signed into law by President George W. Bush -- was unnecessary
as the department already compiles such information in its annual reports
on human rights and religious freedom.
- THE GLOBAL 'ANTI-SEMITISM' LAW IS AS DANGEROUS IF NOT
WORSE THAN THE PATRIOT ACT AND MUST BE REPEALED!
