Pays Handsomely To Be Israel's Bitch

Congressmen Denouncing U.N. Inquiry Receive Handsome Donations from Pro-Israel Lobby

"Domestic policies such as health care reform and financial regulation are dominating Congress’ legislative agenda this year.
But on Wednesday, the House of Representatives approved a non-binding measure denouncing a United Nations inquiry that found that Israel committed scores of war crimes in its three-week assault last year in Gaza. More than 1,300 Palestinians were killed in the Israeli attack, many of whom were civilians, according to Amnesty International. Headed by South African jurist Richard Goldstone, the inquiry also accused Hamas of war crimes and said both sides should investigate the allegations or face international prosecution.
In voting for the measure, the House dismissed the Goldstone report as “irredeemably biased and unworthy of further consideration or legitimacy.” It also called on the Obama administration to “strongly and unequivocally oppose” discussion of the report’s findings in any international setting.
The resolution passed 344-46.
The members of the House who voted in favor of the resolution have received $51,260 more on average from pro-Israel organizations ($81,020 versus $29,770) since 1989 than those who opposed it, the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics has found."

It's a racket. First, the U.S. Congress gives multiple millions to Israel annually, then Congress votes in favor of Israel with a case like the Goldstone report, and finally, Israel returns large portions of the money originally given to it by Congress to the Congress-members that voted in its favor.

Sack the whole lot of traitors or show them the guillotine!
