Young Democrats want AIPAC to target GOP
A Democratic Jewish group said it was "disappointed" that AIPAC had not yet rebuked Republicans for voting against a foreign aid bill that included funding for Israel.

"The American Israel Public Affairs Committee is an incredibly effective organization that shares the Democratic Party's goal of Israel's security and the US-Israel relationship, but they have shown an apparent double standard," said a statement issued this week by the Young Democrats of America-Jewish Caucus.

The Republican leadership ordered its U.S. House of Representatives caucus to vote against the foreign aid bill last month because Republicans opposed an increase in aid and because it provided some assistance to overseas groups that provide some assistance to groups that use other funds to pay for abortions. The assistance included $2.4 billion in aid for Israel.

"We are disappointed that they have not adequately responded to this apparent double standard when it comes to voting for foreign appropriation bills," the statement said.

5. Good of Nixon to arm right-wing fanatical Israel --
Not unlike our CIA baiting the Russians into Afghanistan and creating the Taliban . . .
"in hopes of giving the Russians a Vietnam-type of experience" . . . !!!!

There are no fighters as fanatical as religious fundamentalists - -

6. Um, just to note, that while the CURRENT Israeli government is right-wing..
in Nixon's time, the Israeli government was Labour, and quite left-wing.

And even the current right-wing government is not made up of religious fundamentalists.

I do agree about the disastrous consequences of arming the forerunners of the Taliban.
