Israel's Intent: Steamroll Hamas & Free Shalit

The Senate resolution on Gaza provided more hints at Israel's true aim, denuding Hamas and freeing captured soldier Gilad Shalit. Harry Reid introduced the bill with this statement:

When we pass this resolution, the U.S. Senate will strengthen its historic bond with the State of Israel, by reaffirming Israel's inalienable right to defend against attacks from Gaza as well as our support for the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.

Why didn't Harry mention Israel's seige of 1.5 million people, most not Hamas? Does he know about Israel's use of cluster bombs, white phosphorous, and DIME bombs? Has Reid heard the Israeli military herded Palestinian refugees into a house, only to bomb it a day later? Or the IDF lied about shoots fired from the United Nations school to justify shelling that killed dozens of innocent people. How about blocking rescue efforts of the wounded for days?

Harry Reid and the U.S. Senate mentioned none of these points in their resolution, which read like an AIPAC position statement. The bipartisan Congress is a Fox on Israel, fair and balanced.
