CONGRESSMAN WANTS MILITARY AID TO ISRAEL REASSESSED

E-mail Print PDF

A US congressman plans to brief fellow members of Congress and the Obama administration about his recent trip to Gaza, saying the US should pressure Israel regarding border closures and reassess its military support for the Jewish state.

Rep. Brian Baird, a Democrat from Washington state, visited Gaza last week with fellow Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison of Minnesota and was struck by “the level of destruction, the scope of it, specifically the civilian targets - schools, hospitals, industry.”

Baird also said Israel had “apparently willfully destroyed any capacity of the Palestinians to rebuild their own infrastructure.”

The trip to Gaza by Baird and Ellison coincided with a separate visit there by John Kerry, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Their presence marked the first time members of Congress had visited Gaza since US personnel were killed in a roadside bomb in 2003.

TVNL Comment: Remember the name of this person. He will either die a non-natural or suspicious death or massive funding and positive media coverage for an opponent will endure that he will not get re-elected. Campaign contributions for his next opponent will arrive from all 50 states. Just a guess here. Let's see if I am correct.
