A Democratic congressman reassured local Jewish leaders after criticizing the Bush administration and Israeli policy on Lebanon. Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) told the leaders in a Maryland suburb last week that he still supported Israel despite his July 30 letter to the U.S. secretary of state, Condoleezza Rice, arguing that a “continuation of the bombing campaign as it is being carried out is against the interests of Israel and the United States.”
