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."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.
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).
