A full one fifth of the United States House of Representatives, this August, will be sojourning off to Israel. Does anyone seriously think that the problems aren’t great enough right here, presently, in the United States? And, reportedly, the tab will be procured by the Israeli lobby, so that will, undoubtedly, be an unbiased look at the Arab/Israeli malaise. But alas it’s probably the free trip anyway, quite frankly, that strikes the fancy of many of these shifty and unscrupulous folks, because as those who are bought and paid for, routinely — and as a matter of course — they are, most assuredly, rather adept and canny at this sort of task.
