WASHINGTON — House Republicans are expected as soon as Thursday to try to add an amendment on anti-Semitism to a Yemen war resolution, giving Democrats a wrenching choice: Vote down the amendment amid charges that their party is coddling anti-Semites, or approve it and kill a hard-fought resolution aimed at ending American involvement in Saudi Arabia’s war.
While Republicans are keeping a close hold over their plans, Democrats and Jewish groups are convinced that the minority will try the maneuver to derail the Yemen resolution and embarrass Democrats in one maneuver. In February, a similar last-minute procedural motion to condemn anti-Semitism caught Democrats off guard, and knocked the Yemen resolution off its fast track to President Trump’s desk.
But this time, Democrats are prepared — and are already laying the groundwork to accuse Republicans of a cynical attempt to weaponize anti-Semitism. In a closed-door meeting this week, Representative Steny H. Hoyer of Maryland, the No. 2 Democrat and a vocal supporter of Israel, implored members to oppose any Republican motion.
“If anybody thinks that I’m not supportive of an anti-Semitism resolution, you don’t know much about my history, and I’m going to tell that to the members on the floor,” Mr. Hoyer later told reporters. “This is about Yemen. This is not about some extraneous, maybe very important, but extraneous and undermining” amendment.
The last-minute push by Democrats illustrates the lingering unease in the caucus as Republicans seek to divide them on support for Israel. And it demonstrates a renewed resolve among leadership to take a hard line against allowing members to derail major pieces of legislation by signing on to Republicans’ politically freighted procedural motions.
Republicans have twice successfully used the tactic to divide Democrats and put them on the spot over hot-button issues, once on immigration and a second time on anti-Semitism. Both amounted to embarrassing setbacks for Democrats, and both emboldened Republicans, who see an opening to woo Jewish voters, a core component of the Democratic base.
“I don’t see the issue going away,” said Representative Lee Zeldin of New York, one of two Jewish Republicans in the House. “Silence isn’t an option.”
Debate over anti-Semitism and Israel has been roiling Democrats for months after comments by one of their freshmen, Representative Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, that many construed as anti-Semitic. Republicans have seized on the issue; Mr. Trump has tried to brand Democrats as “anti-Jewish,” despite his own history of trafficking in anti-Semitic tropes.
Republicans used the conference last week of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, the nation’s largest pro-Israel lobby, to attack Democrats over Israel and anti-Semitism. Speaking to the group’s 18,000 delegates, Vice President Mike Pence asserted that the Democratic Party “has been co-opted by people who promote rank anti-Semitic rhetoric.”
The recent controversy spurred Representative Ro Khanna, Democrat of California and the lead sponsor of the Yemen resolution, to conduct private meetings with his Democratic colleagues to prepare for a possible Republican effort to derail the resolution.
“This is a bill about preventing a famine for 14 million Yemenis,” Mr. Khanna said in an interview. “It’s about saving lives and liberty of women and children, and I find it offensive that the Republicans would use a divisive tactic of anti-Semitism to block an effort to save lives in Yemen.”
Even as Democrats rebuke the tactic, it is not going away. Some veteran Jewish lawmakers, notably Representative Eliot L. Engel of New York, the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and freshmen in swing districts, privately worried that it would be difficult to vote against a resolution supporting Jews or the Jewish state, according to people familiar with the discussions.
And at least two House Democrats, Representatives Elaine Luria of Virginia and Josh Gottheimer of New Jersey, suggested they would have difficulty doing so. Ms. Luria said she would vote in accordance with her values. And Mr. Gottheimer said: “This is a matter of principle for me. I have always stood strong against anti-Semitism and always will.”
Democrats have already voted twice to condemn anti-Semitism: once when the Yemen resolution first came up for a vote, and a second time as part of a broader resolution condemning all forms of bigotry after the uproar over Ms. Omar. If they had not approved the first anti-Semitism amendment, the Yemen resolution would have reached Mr. Trump’s desk weeks ago. Because the amendment was attached, the Senate had to start from scratch on a new Yemen resolution.
Jewish House Democrats, led by Representative Jerrold Nadler of New York, responded to the Republican efforts by introducing their own resolution condemning the boycott Israel movement.
Mr. Khanna said Democrats needed to do more, by going on offense against Republicans.
Last week, for instance, Representative Mo Brooks, Republican of Alabama, read from Hitler’s manifesto, “Mein Kampf,” on the House floor to compare Democrats and the news media to Nazis who pushed political propaganda. And Representative Louie Gohmert, Republican of Texas, invoked Hitler during a Judiciary Committee hearing in which he compared socialists to Nazis in an effort to tar the Democratic left.
“Where are the voices calling for censure” of Mr. Brooks and Mr. Gohmert, Mr. Khanna asked on Twitter.
Representative Max Rose, Democrat of New York and the first Jewish lawmaker to represent his district, which has a large Yemeni population, has strongly urged his colleagues to turn back any attempts to weaponize anti-Semitism to derail the legislation.
“The ongoing war in Yemen is a humanitarian disaster that has taken thousands and thousands of innocent lives, devastating families in my community back home,” Mr. Rose said. “I don’t play politics when it comes to national security or rising anti-Semitism. Republicans should be ashamed of themselves for using my faith and this issue as a political wedge.”
The resolution, which condemns a nearly four-year conflict in Yemen that has inflicted a devastating famine, has faced a long and difficult road in getting to Mr. Trump’s desk. The House easily passed it in February. But by attaching the unrelated Republican resolution over anti-Semitism, Democrats stripped the bill of its so-called privileged status, which would have allowed the Senate to take it up quickly and send it to Mr. Trump.
The Senate eventually did pass the measure, and now it is back to the House for what is essentially a do-over.
If it passes the House cleanly, the president has promised to veto it, the second veto of his term.B:
