    of the money and military aid committed to israel by the congress; therefore your assertion that congress represents the people of the united states on this issue, is not necessarily true. what IS true however, is that the "commitment" to maintaining israel's military edge vis-a-vis its neighbors, by presidential administrations and congress both, is a consequence of the tremendous amount of political power israel's lobbying agents have been allowed exert within the united states government... to the point cipora, that prospect of voting against the will of the israeli lobby, for those who are themselves not willing participants of its endeavors, carries with it the pall of political retribution. sorry to disagree with you cipora, but the fact IS that on any issue concerning israel, the congress does NOT necessarily represent the american people. you see cipora, in THIS country, congressional issues regarding israel don't even make the mainstream news. no one hears about these decisions...unless they seek them out. by the way, nice touch with the line about the saudi lobby...lol. you're becoming quite the propagandist, cipora. actually though, the arab lobby pales in comparison. i did read a while back, that it's come a long ways the last few years or so; but it's nowhere even close.
