The Arab-American Institute (chaired by James Zogby) published a report providing insight into the new leaders who have taken control of the House of Representatives. The majority would appear to be Israel-firsters and rabid advocates of the "clash of civilizations". Thus, we are witnessing a radicalization of Congress reminiscent of what occurred in 1995 and which led to the remilitarization of the United States and the Kosovo war.
