Pelosi to attend Israeli Independence day torch ceremony

At least she's consistent on that point - her support for Israel. I'm no fan of this lady, but Israelis should appreciate the fact that there's still wall to wall support for Israel in the US congress.

Independence Day torch for Schalit, Pollard, MIAs
When Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin lights the celebratory torch next Monday on Independence Day eve, he plans to dedicate it to kidnapped soldier Gilad Schalit, imprisoned spy Jonathan Pollard, and missing soldiers Ron Arad, Zachary Baumel, Yehudah Katz, Tzvi Feldman, Guy Hever and Majdi Halabi.

Rivlin is expected to tell the millions of Israelis watching the ceremony either in person or on live broadcast that “we pray we will be able to celebrate the next Independence Day together with them, and also together with our brother, our kindred, the Prisoner of Zion, Jonathan Pollard.


US House of Representatives Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is expected to be present as a guest of the government, together with what officials describe as a “top-level Congressional delegation.”
