Swalwell Goes To Israel

Rep. Eric Swalwell

CONGRESS 15 | Rep. Eric Swalwell already has his hands full closing the inherent East-West divide in the 15th Congressional District, but he thinks he can help the generations-long dispute between Israel and Palestine.

The freshman congressman and 35 other members of Congress, led by Rep. Steny Hoyer, left Sunday for Israel. The contingent will meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas during the seven-day trip.

The pro-Israeli lobby in Washington has been kind to Swalwell before and after his election to Congress last November. Various Israeli organizations have contributed greatly to his campaign going back to last year. Many of the same groups again contributed to Swalwell’s campaign, according to the most recent campaign finance reports.

The trip was organized by the American Israeli Education Foundation, which is affiliated to the powerful American Israeli Public Affairs Committee.

In media reports today, Swalwell said his primary interest in the trip is to evaluate Israel’s methods and responses to terrorism, including its technology.

Swalwell is currently a member of the House Committee on Homeland Security and has advocated in the past for greater funding for security at airports and at BART, which runs through his district. Swalwell has also backed the Alameda County Sheriff’s proposal for domestic drones in cases of emergency. He also backs the use of more lethal forms of drones in the Middle East.

According to Swalwell’s congressional Web Site, he advocates for a two-state solution in Israel, but urges Palestinians to negotiate directly with Israel, and without pre-conditions.

  1. It's Swallwell's staffers again, who have nothing to offer on their own, copying other posts. They are as lame as Eric and make as many mistakes as he does. He isn't competent, so how can he hire competent people. LMAO

  18. Ellen Corbett is a whore for that pimp Willie Brown. That's why she voted to change the name of our Bay Bridge.

    You're a pimp, too, Ellen. We'll retire you and your crony politics once and for all next year.

    Bye, bye, ho!

  19. This article is about Swalwell goes to Israel. (nice try by a staffer to change the subject). Eric also gave his finger to his district. Swalwell=flip, flop-flip, flop-flip, flop-flip, flop. He's a panderer. No principals! That's why Ellen Corbett will win and his staffers so worried. Eric's staffer is also a sexist.

  20. Ellen, I'm the Willie Brown pimp, Whorbett!

    If you like what I did for Boss Brown, just let me in so I can screw-over you and the district!

    Let me be the first to say that I, Ellen, will give my middle digit to the district each and every time!

  21. agree with anon 10:02. I wish Swallwells staffers would stay off this blog. They don't even try and defend their candidate because they know that he is a flip-flopper who has his finger to the wind and has NO principals. Even if I don't agree with everything Ellen Corbett does, I TRUST her more than the flip-flopper. Plus, his staffers are very sexist.

  23. There are no 9:57's and 6:01's Swalwell staffer at 9:07. You are as incompetent as your boss. The Swalwell staffer who has half the posts on this string is just as wrong as Swalwell and once again he/she is trying to change the subject. Talk about a cheer leader. All your posts won't be able to save an immature kid who stands for nothing .

  26. My name is Wendy Bain from Pleasanton. I am a volunteer staffer for the Ellen Corbett people. I can't sit back any longer while the following goes on.

    We have been smearing Ellen on our own and then casting blame on congressman Swalwell. The fact is that neither he nor anyone associated with his campaign has been targeting Ellen.

    This has been a dirty, disgusting smear campaign that I can no longer take part in. I am finished.
