It's the same in any lingo

בַּת-בָּבֶל, הַשְּׁדוּדָה: אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיְשַׁלֶּם-לָךְ-- אֶת-גְּמוּלֵךְ, שֶׁגָּמַלְתּ לָנוּ
אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיֹּאחֵז וְנִפֵּץ אֶת-עֹלָלַיִךְ-- אֶל-הַסָּלַע

How can one be compelled to accept slavery? I simply refuse to do the master's bidding. He may torture me, break my bones to atoms and even kill me. He will then have my dead body, not my obedience. Ultimately, therefore, it is I who am the victor and not he, for he has failed in getting me to do what he wanted done. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am not for others, what am I? If not now, when? ~ Rav Hillel, Pirke Avot

Is Goldstone Waking the Slumbering Congress?

While the Marack administration has been relentlessly assailing Israel's sovereignty over Jerusalem, its claims to Yehuda and Shomron, and the sanctity of its Supreme Court, the US Congress has largely been asleep. With the exception of a critical letter here or there it's pretty much been a US Congress asleep at the switch on defending Israel from Marack and his Cast of Kapos.

So how refreshing is it to find that there is a bipartisan effort in Congress to pressure Marack to quash the Goldstone Libel?

A non-binding resolution introduced on Friday by Rep. Howard Berman (D-California), the chairman of the House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee, and Rep. Ileana Ross-Lehtinen (R-Florida), the committee's ranking Republican, "calls on the president and the secretary of state to strongly and unequivocally oppose any further consideration of the 'Report of the United Nations Fact Finding Mission on the Gaza Conflict' and any other measures stemming from this report in multilateral fora."

Also signing on as sponsors were the Middle East subcommittee's chairman and ranking member, Reps. Gary Ackerman (D-New York) and Dan Burton (R-Indiana).
Now, let's see if it passes. Of course we know that Marack will ignore it, but passage is at least an encouraging sign that there are still some in government that remember that it is Israel, not the terrorist regimes of Fatah and Hamas, or the Saudis (before whom we all saw Marack bow low), who fund, aid, and abet the terrorists, that is America's ally.
