The House on Wednesday unanimously passed a resolution that condemns Britan's University and College Union for initiating an academic boycott of Israel. "When Israel comes under attack from hate-mongers, it is the American values that are also under such attack," said Rep. Patrick Murphy (D-PA), who cosponsored the resolution along with Rep. Dan Burton (R-IN). "Today, by passing this bi-partisan resolution, we are stating with one voice that this Congress will stand up and defend our friend the state of Israel." The resolution also urges the international scholarly community, the European Union and individual governments to oppose the boycott.
Comment: "unanimously"? Well, the U.S. Congress just gave the Israelis 2.4 billion US dollars. They'll use it to buy more U.S. culster bombs to drop on defenseless women and children. They'll also use it to beef up their own weapons industry to sell death and destruction around the planet.
For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes. Luke 6:44
