250 congressmen signed a letter that says nothing. This is all political mumbo-jumbo. The letter could be summed up as: 1. Israel is a good friend of the US 2. Israel's security is in the interest of the USA. 3. Please don't fight so much in public. Does anything of that look controversial to anyone? Notice the lack of any voiced support for, for example, continued construction in Eastern Jerusalem... The letter is made so that it doesn't contain anything that not every politician in Washington could agree with. The only purpose of this letter is to get a lot of signatures and to put something in the paper. This does not mean that Israel has 250 congressmen in its pocket...
