Letters supporting Israel’s withdrawal from the Gaza Strip and calling on the Palestinian Authority to disarm terrorist groups garnered signatures from majorities in the U.S. Congress. Sens. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) — their respective party whips — and Reps. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) and Deborah Pryce (R-Ohio) initiated the letters to President Bush last month.
