Rep. Brian Baird calls for cutting U.S. aid to Israel on Al Jazeera English
Check out this short clip from Al Jazeera English, interviewing Reps. Brian Baird and Keith Ellison, both of whom visited Gaza, have spoken out in Congress, and were instrumental in opposing H.Res.867's ridiculous condemnation of the Goldstone Report (thanks to Palestine Video for the catch) : Listen to Rep. Baird at the end: "There will be a cost in dollars, in aid, in support, if some fundamental changes don't happen." It's not too late to arrange a meeting with your Members of Congress when they are in their home districts during the winter recess and let them know that you agree with Rep. Baird.
