Good Lord. Thanks for bringing this to my attention, Mr. Weiss. I just finished reading the articles by Mike Coogan and Glenn Greenwald and the text of the actual bill.
I live in Pennsylvania and Democratic Senator Bob Casey, whom I voted for the last two elections, is one of the co-sponsors. The first time he ran, it was against Santorum, so it was an easy choice. After reading his website, though, it’s clear he’s an Israeli-firster. He spouts the usual drivel about Israel being our staunch ally and sharing our values and even has a paragraph about how Israel was justified in using force against the flotilla, which he says was a provocation. I’m going to write to him and let him know that I’m disgusted that he has co-sponsored a bill that discriminates against the citizens of his own country at the behest of a foreign one. I’ll also let him know that I’ll no longer support him at the polls unless he revokes his sponsorship of this garbage.
