Nita Lowey, Howard Berman, Eric Cantor; two men and one woman; two Democrats and one Republican. Question: What is their common denominator? Answer: They are all Jews, reflexively supporting Israeli positions. Unfortunately, Israeli positions are not always wise, and sometimes they may hurt Israel and the US, even in the near future. If the US withholds support from Lebanon, they will be able to get even more advanced arms from other sources, from France or even Russia for example, paid for by the Saudis. In short, the US will lose the influence it has in Lebanon. And all this for some trivial matter. The fact is that the US does not supply arms that are dangerous to Israel, not even defensive anti-air missiles that can shoot down Israeli intruders. Another source can supply that, if the US loses influence. The House of Representatives is weak on geo-political issues. Better leave this to the Senate. Senators are of higher quality.
