New York's finest

Israel can always depend on these American Israel Firsters whenever it gets in trouble. On a bright sunny day, these Israel Firsters representing various Congressional districts in New York gathered to profess their love for a foreign state while chastising Americans who were on the flotilla that was violently attacked by Israel in international water. Instead of calling for an investigation for an American that was shot four times in the head by Israeli commandos, these Israel Firsters had the chutzpah to ask the State Department to ban every non-American flotilla participant from entering the United States.

The lawmakers who showed up at this Israel love fest organized by the Jewish Community Relations Council of New York are the usual suspects: Anthony Weiner, Carolyn Maloney, Jerry Nadler and Eliot Engel. Surprisingly, it also included the fallen-from-grace Charlie Rangel. Did they promise Rangel that he would get his chairmanship on the Ways and Means Committee back if he joins them Israel Firsters?
