Meanwhile, back in DC . . .
House, displaying a foreign affairs solidarity lacking on issues like
Iraq, voted overwhelmingly Thursday to support Israel in its confrontation
with Hezbollah guerrillas.
The resolution, which was passed on a 410-8 vote, also condemns
enemies of the Jewish state.
House Republican leader John Boehner cited Israel's "unique
relationship" with the United States as a reason for his colleagues
to swiftly go on record supporting Israel in the latest flare-up of violence
in the Mideast.
Little of the political divisiveness in Congress on other national security
issues was evident as lawmakers embraced the Bush administration's position.
So strong was the momentum for the resolution that it was steamrolling
efforts by a small group of House members who argued that Congress's pro-Israel
stance goes too far.
