Cornyn Stands Up for Israel

As Rep. Peter King is doing in the House today, Sen. John Cornyn is not meekly accepting Obama’s stance on the terrorist flotilla. He announces a resolution:

In recognition of the State of Israel as a strong and steadfast ally to the United States, U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-Texas) today introduced a resolution to express the sense of the Senate that Israel has an undeniable right to self-defense and to condemn the recent destabilizing actions by terrorist operatives and extremists aboard the Mavi Marmara. …

As with UN sanctions, it’s time for elected officials and candidates to make a clear choice: follow Obama’s determination to let an international body skewer Israel, use the flotilla incident as a tool to bludgeon Israel into more concessions, avert our eyes from Turkey’s complicity — or protect Israel from the international jackals. You can’t do both.
