House Votes Overwhelmingly to Support Israel

The House of Representatives, following the Senate’s unanimous vote, approved a similar resolution 390-5, with 22 voting “present.” Only one Republican voted “no”–you guessed it–Ron Paul. Although they only voted “present” (oh please, how pathetic is that), the usual anti-Israeli suspects were in that column–Jim Moran, John Dingell, Keith Ellison, Jim McDermott, and Pete Stark, to name a few.

So to be clear, we have on one side of the issue concerning the Gaza invasion the entire U.S. Senate and 390 members of the U.S. House (including the top leaders on both sides) and on the other we have the list above plus Pat Buchanan. And where does J Street stand? Well, they won’t really say, but in substance they seem to be with the Paul-Buchanan crowd.

Perhaps they should be renamed the Paul-Buchanan Street PAC.
