House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Texas) blasted the State Department’s report on Israel’s actions in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. Accepting an award Wednesday at the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews’ Stand for Israel Day in Washington, DeLay said the report, released this week, “compares the human rights record of a free, tolerant and pluralistic nation with that of a terrorist network. There is no comparison, and to assert one is ridiculous.”
