Congress Passes Resolution in Support of Israel BUT look at the non-supporters of Israel!

Today, Congress passed the following resolution in support of Israel and the peace process:

Recognizing Israel’s right to defend itself against attacks from Gaza, reaffirming the United States’ strong support for Israel, and supporting the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.

From Atlas Shrugs, their were 5 NO votes and 22 PRESENT votes.  So 5 members of Congress don’t support Israel’s right to defend itself and 22 members are too cowardly to say they don’t. (All but one, Ron Paul, are Democrats and 25% are from California)

Here is the list…including the one Muslim member of Congress from Minnesota, Keith Ellison, who is under scrutiny for his ties to and for accepting funds from the American Muslim Society, a radical front group for bringing Islamic law and culture to the US.

This is disgraceful. 
If a similar hypothetical situation transpired with rockets being fired unprovoked, in the hundreds or thousands, from troubled Tijuana into southern San Diego County, I guess those same 27 Congressional members (especially the 25% from California) would vote that the US/San Diego/California doesn’t have the right to defend itself nor have our full support in stopping the attacks….(that metaphor was something I read or heard a few days ag0, but don’t remember where)
As Atlas says, we need to be cognizant and informed of the threat and enemy within.  It is not a comfortable thought, but I count at least 27 reasons why our guard must be up now more than ever.  Watch for the enemy from within…

  1. The conclusive solution to silence radical Palestinian groups will be to establish an international military force to police Gaza and the West Bank headed by a contagion of forces from the more secular Arab countries to ensure the smooth transition to a strong Palestinian state. If there is a well crafted plan to create a Palestinian state, I think most of the Arab countries will readily send troops to help develop a viable Palestinian state.
    A peaceful Middle East will definitely have a lot of ramifications. A peaceful Middle East will stem the tide and accelerate a decline in radical Islam. There is no greater hope than that the Israelis and Palestinians get tired of their tortuous past full of wars then sit down and work towards a peaceful Middle East.
    Rest of article on here:

  2. […] in favor of the resolution, sorta. Rep. Jim McDermott (D-WA, 7), who voted “present,”  drew ire at this conservative blog, and Rep. Brian Baird (D-WA, 3) […]

  3. Israel is a nation of terror, killing innocent people and manipulating the U.S. media. God bless those who voted no.

  4. Truth,
    You wouldn’t know truth if it walked up and sliced your head off.

    Your joking right?

  5. Two things. Truth, that is out of line and downright wrong. Israel is obviously not a nation of terror as evidenced by a recent poll which showed over half the country in support of a two state solution. Sharprightturn, your California analogy doesnt work because your use of the phrase “unprovoked rockets”. You can’t argue that keeping millions of people in tightly confined refugee camps with poor sanitation is not provoking. I suspect that some senators might vote against support for a U.S. war if the U.S treated the mexicans the way Israel treats Palestine.

  6. Joel,
    The poor living conditions of Palestinians is the result of its leaders. It is not current day Israel that is to fault for that.

  7. Frankly, I don’t care about either the Palestinians or the Israelis. I fail to see any compelling US national/strategic interest in this conflict. One of the primary reasons US interests elsewhere in the region are threatened is because of our support for Israel. So, what do we gain from our support in return? As far as I can see, nothing. The only things that matter in the area are the Suez Canal, the oil fields in Iraq, Saudi Arabia, and the various emirates in the Gulf, and control of the sea lanes through the Gulf. How does Israel benefit us in any of those areas? The only value I can see for having an alliance with Israel (in the post-cold war world) is that they can be used for military actions for which we don’t want to be responsible. However, in the past twenty years, more often than not, we have had to act to keep Israel out of conflicts we were already engaged in, in order not to provoke a general war. Also, the likelihood of our becoming embroiled in conflicts in the first place is often either directly or indirectly related to our alliance with Israel. I don’t care which side is right or wrong. I care about the USA not having this albatros around our neck anymore.

  8. MIke,
    You don’t care about Palestinians or Israelis but your entire argument is about how bad support for Israel is for the US!?!?

    You also said “However, in the past twenty years, more often than not, we have had to act to keep Israel out of conflicts we were already engaged in, in order not to provoke a general war.”
    Examples are in order here. In the scheme of things, Israel has been extremely restrained in their policies, particularly in a region that wishes to see them all dead.
