327 House members tell Obama to make U-turn on US-Israeli relations

"probably the most bipartisan effort seen on Capitol Hill in this session of Congress"

"Meanwhile, in Washington, [327] congressmen – three-quarters of the House of Representatives – signed a bipartisan letter to US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton expressing solid support for Israel and the expectation that differences between Jerusalem and Washington will be smoothed over quickly and in private.

“We are writing to reaffirm our commitment to the unbreakable bond that exists between our country and the State of Israel and to express to you our deep concern over recent tension,” the letter read. “A strong Israel is an asset to the national security of the United States and brings stability to the Middle East."

This shows just how out of step Obama, Pelosi and Reid are with Congress.
