Israel is speaking to terrorists groups-Hezbollah and Hamas-in the only language they understand.
This from the same article, from Voice of America, as below:
“As Senator Biden was speaking, White House spokesman Tony Snow was telling reporters the U.S. is stepping up diplomatic efforts.
However, responding to a reporter’s question, he said those will not include any direct high-level contacts between President Bush and Syrian president Bashar al-Assad. “There is absolutely no reason to assume, based on the track record, that negotiations and conversations with the Syrians would yield any fruit,” he said.”
U.S. House of Representatives will vote Thursday on a strong resolution supporting
Israel in its conflict with Hezbollah and Hamas. The lawmakers held an extended debate Wednesday on the crisis in the
House lawmakers support
Israel’s right to use appropriate action to defend itself against attacks.
They say such defense includes conducting operations both in
Israel and the territory of nations posing a threat to it, under Article 51 of the U.N. Charter.
