Prescient Zionist Congressman Berman

The Congressman drafting the U.S. resolution on Gaza is a proud Zionist. He said he became a Zionist before he became a Democrat. At least Howard Berman said that to a reporter last summer. Berman is also remarkably prescient. Consider his December 18th interview with the Jerusalem Post:

In an interview after addressing a conference at the Institute for National Security Studies in Tel Aviv, Berman also said the new US administration should not interfere if Israel felt it necessary to take military action in the Gaza Strip.

“The [rocket] strikes, the ongoing [arms] smuggling, the Hamas efforts to modernize their arsenal - all these things together pose a real threat to Israel, and an intolerable situation. There is obviously a big price to pay for deciding to take military action, but I think the US should support the Israeli decision on this,” he said.

He said he believed the Obama administration would be “very reluctant” to interfere with an Israeli “self-defense action.”

December 27th, Israel attacks Gaza. Barack Obama has been very reluctant to speak. However, his twelve days of silence speaks volumes. A Zionist's drafting America's Congressional resolution is patently absurd, unless we annexed a 51st state.
