Democrats same as Republicans on Lebanon

Tom Lantos, the highest ranking Democrat on the House International Relations Committee, wants aid to Lebanon frozen until the government of Lebanon does the bidding of the US. In condescending language, he said the aid should be “withheld until the Lebanese government displays responsibility.”

His action, which happened after he met with Israeli PM Olmert, was quickly endorsed by the Zionist Organization of America (“founded 1897”) so I’m guessing he doesn’t have the interests of starving Lebanese civilians who need medical supplies uppermost in his mind. Let ’em starve and bleed to death, “they’re animals anyway”, right, Tom?

    Tom Lantos is as right-wing as they come. More.

    That ZOA (who I’d never heard of before) immediately endorsed what he said shows Lantos to be ultra-Zionist indeed.
