As Putin geared up to take Ukraine, Democrat and Republican congress members were busy partying in Israel on an all-expenses-paid AIPAC-affiliated junket to affirm their "unwavering support" for America's "great ally" -- even though Israeli officials have made it abundantly clear they will not be participating in any war over Ukraine, lest it jeopardize Israel's close relationship with Russia.
Twenty-seven Republicans and 14 Democrats along with many of their spouses and Kevin McCarthy's mother took part in the junket this week, according to reports from the Times of Israel and Jewish Insider.
Thirteen Democrats (including Adam Schiff) also went to Israel last week on a junket with Nancy Pelosi.
Florida Democratic Rep. Ted Deutch "double-dipped," attending "Nancy Pelosi's trip last week and the AIPAC one" this week, Mondoweiss reported.
Naftali Bennett reportedly pressured "our" congress members to get tougher on Iran.
Nancy Pelosi told pro-Israel billionaire and top Democratic donor Haim Saban at the 2018 Israeli American Council National Conference that if America's "Capitol crumbled to the ground, the one thing that would remain would be our commitment to our aid" to Israel.
In contrast, Israel is refusing to get involved with Ukraine despite pressure from the US to help out (Israel also refused to send a single troop to take part in the US war in Iraq despite Netanyahu lobbying for it before Congress).
Israeli officials had to have their arms twisted into even stating they'd side with the US over Russia in the event of a larger conflict.
As the Middle East Eye reported on Monday:
Knesset foreign affairs and defence committee chairman Ram Ben-Barak told the 103 FM radio station that if the US were to place sanctions on Russia, it would put Israel in a "difficult situation".This is our "greatest ally"?
