GOP House Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-VA) and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) circulated a letter to colleagues this week urging President Obama to support Israel when moving forward with any Israeli peace process.

Look at it closer ... See the very end has a space between "UR" and "L]"

Delete that space and save it. All Good.

Give me a second I will find it in a pdf and post it for you:
media.abovetopsecret.com...

they changed the title on the pdf page already sorry here is an update

Josh Block, a spokesman for AIPAC, said he wasn’t familiar with the particular letter but that he could “only guess that whoever wrote the [letter] used it that title as shorthand, since it’s well know that we support the Hoyer/Cantor letter it is attached to.”
