Pelosi played make believe during her talk at the Knesset.
The Jerusalem Post reported:
Pelosi spoke emotionally about her meetings with the families of the kidnapped soldiers and dramatically held up the soldiers’ dog tags, which she said she displays prominently at her office in Congress and she would bring with her to Damascus.
“I will send a message to the president of Syria from the families of the soldiers and from the Cohen family as well,” Pelosi said, noting the presence of the families in the room. “We must counter the terrorists’ vision of apocalypse and despair with our own vision of hope. International forces in Lebanon must implement the UN resolution effectively. Hizbullah must be disarmed. Iran must not be allowed to obtain a nuclear weapon.”
The UN was given “evidence and pictures” this weekend of trucks crossing from Syria to Lebanon and unloading weapons.
U.N. Resolution 1701 which halted the 34 days of fighting calls among other things for a stop in arms shipments to Hezbollah guerrillas and demands the ” unconditional release” of two Israeli soldiers the militants captured, triggering the conflict.
Hezbollah has never returned the soldiers in question and Syria continues to arm Syria. …But, it was a nice talk.
Syria is looking forward to meeting with Speaker Pelosi. Via Al-watan– The Syrian information minister welcomed Pelosi’s visit and praised her rejection of the war in Iraq.
