My Letter to the editor published for Sunday’s edition of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution was a bit tamer than the letter I originally submitted. I’m not pleased that they changed the title and did some editing of it but I should be happy that I got this in at least.

Pro-Israel group paying tab for trip no surprise
The fact that Rep. Phil Gingrey and his wife received a $17,000 vacation to Tel Aviv paid for by the American Israel Education Foundation shouldn’t surprise anyone (“Members of Congress flying high,” News, April 11.) The American Israel Public Affairs Committee has been using its influence and power to buy off our Congress for decades.
For years, the Israelis have been illegally occupying Palestinian land, demolishing their homes, evicting their people, uprooting their orchards, invading their villages and imposing collective punishment on all.
All these crimes are committed while our Congress awards the state of Israel with billions a year in annual aid, further angering the Muslim world. Is it any wonder there is no peace in the Middle East?
We can thank people like Phil Gingrey, and all the other politicians for supporting such criminal activity, resulting in the ongoing violence in the Middle East that continues to threaten America’s security.
