Nancy Pelosi in Israel–again. “Americans have many political differences, but we stand united with Israel now and always.”

Pelosi’s opposition to the U.S. war in Iraq was not raised in the
Olmert meeting, Eisin said. But Olmert emphasized to the delegation the
need for further sanctions against Iran to stop it from developing
nuclear weapons, she said.

Pelosi’s visit to Israel is her
second trip to the Middle East since she took over leadership of the
House in January. Other representatives traveling with Pelosi and
Ellison include Democrats Henry Waxman and Tom Lantos of California,
Louise Slaughter of New York and Nick Rahall of West Virginia, and Ohio
Republican David Hobson.

Rahall said both his grandfathers
emigrated to the U.S. from southern Lebanon. He said the purpose of the
trip was to prod all sides toward peace. He said if there is progress
toward peace between Israel and the Palestinians or Syria, “that can
cause an avalanche of peace in the area, and that’s all we want.”
