United States Congress supports Israel, rejects Palestinian racism

Israel National News (www.israelnationalnews.com) reports that the United States House of Representatives passed a resolution against the Palestinian "right of return" and in support of Israel's right to exist:

A bipartisan effort in the United States House of Representatives produced a resolution yesterday (Wednesday) that lends Congressional backing to the core principles of President George Bush's April 14 letter to Prime Minister Ariel Sharon.

Passing with an overwhelming majority of 407-9, the resolution recognizes "new realities on the ground, including already existing major Israeli population centers" and rejects any Arab "right of return" to Israel. While not referring to an Israeli withdrawal by name, the resolution does reference a "Palestinian state" more than once. The wording was negotiated and agreed upon by House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Texas) and House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), primary cosponsors of the resolution.

Commenting on the purpose of the resolution, Rep. DeLay said, "The people of Israel are at war with terror, and it is our responsibility to help them win it." The congressman added, "Peace cannot be negotiated with unpeaceful men. Peace must be won. We must stand with Israel as they work everyday toward its winning."

A Senate vote on a similar resolution is expected later this week.

It always amazes me how the United States see clear regarding historical issues - here are some examples:

1) Standing against Nazi Germany and beating the Nazis in World War II.
2) Standing against Communist Russia and beating Communism during the Cold War.
3) Now standing with Israel against Islamic fascism and Palestinian aspirations for destroying the State of Israel and murdering or displacing millions of Israeli Jews.

America's stand helps Israel force the Palestinians to abandon their racist "Right of Return" and their aspirations to destroy the State of Israel. Otherwise they can continue in their ways of violence, hatred, racism and Islamic fascism - but we'll continue to beat them up as the past two years have proven.

A bipartisan effort in the United States House of Representatives produced a resolution yesterday (Wednesday) that lends Congressional backing to the core principles of President George Bush's April 14 letter to Prime Minister Ariel Sharon.

Passing with an overwhelming majority of 407-9, the resolution recognizes "new realities on the ground, including already existing major Israeli population centers" and rejects any Arab "right of return" to Israel. While not referring to an Israeli withdrawal by name, the resolution does reference a "Palestinian state" more than once. The wording was negotiated and agreed upon by House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Texas) and House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), primary cosponsors of the resolution.

Commenting on the purpose of the resolution, Rep. DeLay said, "The people of Israel are at war with terror, and it is our responsibility to help them win it." The congressman added, "Peace cannot be negotiated with unpeaceful men. Peace must be won. We must stand with Israel as they work everyday toward its winning."

A Senate vote on a similar resolution is expected later this week.

In official reaction to the Congressional vote, Israeli Ambassador to the US Daniel Ayalon stated: "By strongly endorsing the principles set forth in President Bush's April 14 letter, in response to Prime Minister Sharon's proposed disengagement plan, the US Congress took an important step in promoting peace and stability in our region."

Senior Sharon aide Dov Weisglass called the vote a watershed, one that he classified as "one of the most important in US-Israel relations."
