Thoughts from your feature, "Steil visit to Israel." (With about 70 other Congress persons), I was saddened the great opportunity missed. We and Israel share much and are strong allies, but while in the neighborhood, we should have made efforts and time to see and understand things from the other side of the walls and fences.
We might then gain understanding as to what is needed for, and work toward, a lasting peace there, as well as understanding why much of the rest of the world views Israel's treatment of its neighbors as somewhere between heavy handed and criminal.
You have free articles remaining.
Squandering that it seems like we, the taxpayers, just funded a vacation in and pep rally for Israel.
In science, at least, we try to collect all new data. Post WWII, we griped about one-sided news. "Brainwashing," that was used behind the Iron Curtain. This seems kind of the same.
But I guess that's expected from Washington when they can't even address the climate change crisis with the mass of data screamin at them.
