Snubbing a U.S. Congressman? How stupid can you be? Even if you disagree with him, you afford him courtesy and you politely try to change his opinion if that's what you'd like to do. As I recall, it is not Israel that gives the U.S. 3 billion a year but the other way around. Treating a congressional delegation with disrespect is swaggering ineptitude. Perhaps that's a requirement for being a right winger, but it makes for lousy diplomacy.
