Congress goes home to see the constituents in August you see . . .

From Andrew Sullivan:

20 percent of the US House of Representatives will be on tours of Israel in the next three weeks. Staggering. Of all the countries salient to US foreign policy, it’s clear who calls the shots. A tiny country of six million with barely any strategic advantage for the US since the Cold War. But to note the fact that there is an Israel lobby that has unparalleled influence in Washington is de facto anti-Semitic.

Twenty friggin-percent! Sounds like J-Street still has a lot of work to do. AIPAC is killin’ em.
