Voting towards the affirmation of a US ambassador whereas Individuals are being held hostage is the alternative of patriotism and assist for a US ally.
The Republican efficiency on the Israel concern has been largely shameful.
If Republicans in Congress really supported Israel they would pass the requested aid without extortion for the rich, and they might vote the US to have an envoy to the nation as quickly as attainable.
