List of anti-Israeli US members of Congress
The New York Times (www.nytimes.com) has published the list of the 23 anti-Israel members of Congress.
It's the 23 members -- two in the Senate and 21 in the House -- who voted against House and Senate resolutions of support for Israel. If you are a U.S. citizen and contribute to political campaigns in the U.S., you may want to contribute to the opponents of the members below, regardless of party, so long as these incumbents' opponents are pro-Israel.
If you don't or can't contribute to campaigns, please feel free to forward this list to anyone who might. In my opinion, no other issue and no U.S. political party allegiance is more important in these times than the safety and security of the State of Israel.
Following is a list of legislators who voted "No" on the resolutions in support of Israel:
SENATORS VOTING "NO" (2)
Robert Byrd, Dem., W.Va.
HOUSE MEMBERS VOTING "NO" (21)
Neil Abercrombie, Dem. Hawaii
Notice that out of the 23 anti-Israeli legislators, 19 are from the Democratic party. With the elections coming up in November, I thought it would be a good idea to publish this list.
Thank you and please pass this around (use the 'Email this entry' link below). I copy the full pro-Israel resolution below.
