Oh Yes, We Stand With Israel!

Below is a list of American political leaders who spoke out in support of Israel during the current crisis. It's published by a crowing AIPAC, though I'm sure before Israel's current humiliation had become apparent.

If you hover your cursor over the pictures, I think you can read their statements and, on the original, you can even write to them to thank them for their courage and fortitude.

But you may prefer to revisit Owen Jones on BBC Question Time and, for just a moment, draw yourself away from Jones' terrific performance and look at the faces of those listening. Even those of you not from the UK will probably spot some British politicos who were also on the panel.

Look deep into their faces. Can you see, as they listen to the audience's clear and noisy support for the Palestinian cause, what I can see - those politicians frantically searching their minds for ways to shift their shameful Jewish lobby dominated, pro-Israel positions?

Now go back to those American politicians and imagine them doing the same.
