Congressman (D-NY) Eliot Engel
Itís not poverty; itís fanaticism that causes terrorism. They are the product of a system that hates the Jews. Islamic Fundamentalism is against anything Western. Israel has the right to go after the terrorists everywhere. The fight against terrorism is a fight for world survival. We must speak with moral clarity Ė there is no equation between suicide bombers and Israeli actions.
My support for Israel is stronger than my political differences with other participants. We have to put our heads together to talk about a solution. A summit like this does that."
