Capitol Hill majority approves resolution favorable to Israel

The House of Representatives approved a pro-Israeli resolution, but there was, most regrettably, a so-called GOP member who opposed it:
The US House of Representatives on Tuesday night overwhelmingly approved a resolution which affirms Israel’s right to exist.

The resolution passed by a majority of 412 to 1.

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) was the sole "No" vote against H. Res. 888
, citing the language within the legislation.

“I agree with the title ‘Reaffirming the State of Israel’s Right to Exist’ and much of the language, but I’m voting No on the resolution because it equates anti-Zionism with antisemitism. Antisemitism is deplorable, but expanding it to include criticism of Israel is not helpful,” he said.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), the “Squad” member who is known for her anti-Israel rhetoric, voted “present”. Another Squad member, Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO) did not vote.
What Massie did was disgraceful, not because he thinks Israel's not above criticism, but because he clearly has no comprehension of the word "zionism", or he'd know it's a synonym for nationalism/patriotism, and even Israel itself. He's one of the embarrassments even Donald Trump's complained about, and should be voted out of office.

It should also be noted that the Hamas violated the cease-fire terms as quickly as expected:
Over the last hour, three explosive devices were detonated adjacent to IDF troops in two different locations in the northern Gaza Strip, violating the framework of the operational pause. In one of the locations, terrorists also opened fire at the troops, who responded with fire.

A number of soldiers were lightly injured during the incidents.

In both incidents, the troops were located in positions as per the framework of the operational pause.

The three explosions occurred during the fifth day of the ceasefire, which was extended yesterday (Monday) from its original four days. With the extension of the ceasefire, an additional 20 Israeli hostages will be freed today and tomorrow, ten each day.
This is no shock at all. Also of note, Hugh Fitzgerald pointed to how the awful CNN interviewed a transsexual "rabbi" who's opposed to Israel's war against Hamas:
Rabbi Jessica Rosenberg is based in Minneapolis and serves on the Jewish Voice for Peace Rabbinic Council. She is the co-author, with Rabbi Ariana Katz, of “For Times Such as These: a Radical’s Guide to the Jewish Year,” which is due to publish next year, and author of an ”Introduction to Trauma, Healing and Resilience for Rabbis, Jewish Educators and Organizers.”

“For days, I’d been marching in the streets of my hometown of Minneapolis, one of thousands of protesters expressing anger and heartache over the deaths of Palestinians in Gaza.

“Then, I had the sudden inspiration to buy a ticket to a campaign fundraiser for President Joe Biden, who I knew would be coming to town. It was one venue, I thought, where he’d have to hear my appeal.

“The ticket to the fundraiser cost me $1,000 — the entry level rate. It’s a lot of money, but it was a small price to pay for the chance to share my thoughts with the president.

“I had just one message for Biden: We need an immediate ceasefire in Gaza. Israel must be compelled to stop the shelling of homes and businesses that has claimed more than 11,000 Palestinian lives. As the leader of Israel’s closest ally, Biden is in a unique role to compel the country to comply with a ceasefire.
Another creep - with a beard, if it matters - who's only interested in Muslim lives, not those of Israelis. As noted here:
Yes, there are thousands of real rabbis who are not Hamas apologists, but CNN had to dig up this person… as their typical rabbi.

Rosenberg says their rabbinic ordination came from Reconstructionist Rabbinical College. That stream of Judaism is just as bizarre as the circus performers of years past, because their rabbis do not believe in God in any normal sense, which makes them fairly unusual people to be interviewed as real rabbis from mainstream media.

If you look at the courses RRC’s rabbis have to take to get that label, you see a combination of things that Orthodox 13 year old boys know and new age ideas that have nothing to do with Judaism.

It takes them three years to learn how to…pray.
And much less time to serve as anti-Israeli propagandists. What an utter disgrace.
