To call it Islamic terror is discriminating, it’s bigoted, it is not the right thing to say.”

‘I don’t take sides for or against Hezballah, or for and against Israel”.
Actually during his years in Congress he has compiled an anti-Israel voting record. On his own official website he included links to groups support Hezballah (when these links were publicized, Dingell took them down).
Jim McDermott (D-Wash),Traveled to Iraq just before the war so he could publicly support Saddam Hussein. The same Saddam Hussein that was just convicted by Iraqi judges for committing mass murder on his own people. McDermott’s trip to Iraq was paid for by an Arab-American which was raided by the FBI and IRS. The government is investigating the group, which it suspects violated sanctions regarding doing business with Iraq.
The Democratic nominee for Congress in Minnesota’s Fifth District is a Black Muslim who has a long record of anti-Semitism that he has tried to hide with twisted language and code names. He has also called cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal and leftist terrorist Sara Jane Olson “freedom fighters.”
Neil Abercrombie (D-Hawaii) May have inhaled too much Volcano Dust when he the sole “No” in a Congressional Resolution that stated that America should never give foreign aid to a Palestinian government if it is controlled by people calling for Israel’s destruction. He also was one of 8 members who voted “No” on this summer’s House resolution defending Israel’s right to defend itself against Hezbollah. Front Page prefers to call him, “Neil Abercrombie, D-Hezbollah”
But Neil wasn’t alone, On July 18, seven Democratic members of the U.S. House of Representatives voted, in the heat of Israel’s battle against Hezbollah, against a resolution which expressed support for Israel’s right of self defense, called for the return of the kidnapped Israeli soldiers, condemned Iran and Syria for their support of terrorism, and condemned Hamas and Hezbollah for using civilians as shields. Those seven House members are: Neil Abercrombie of Hawaii, John Conyers of Michigan, John Dingell of Michigan, Carolyn Kilpatrick of Michigan, Jim McDermott of Washington, Nick Rahall of West Virginia, and Pete Stark of California. In addition, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (who may be the next Speaker )removed her name as a co-sponsor of this important resolution because she didn’t want to be associated with it.
The meeting was attended by 30 Democratic Congressmen. One of the witnesses, Ray McGovern, declared that the US went to war for

Rosenblum cited a U.S. opinion poll comparing voter attitudes on the war in Lebanon and towards Israel, which he said showed Republicans to be far more supportive of Israel than Democrats.“In the recent Senate hearings on John Bolton’s nomination as ambassador to the United Nations, Senator John Kerry, the 2004 Democratic standard-bearer, repeatedly criticized Bolton for the fact that America is consistently the odd-man out at the United Nations, and stands outside the consensus of our European ‘allies,’ he said.
“One shudders to think where Israel would be if the United States ceased to be the ‘odd-man-out’ at the U.N. Recall that six of those so-called European allies, including France, voted in favor of a resolution of the U.N. Human Rights Commission specifically legitimizing terrorism against Israeli citizens to further Palestinian liberation,” Rosenblum added.
