U.S. Rep. Barney Frank had harsh words yesterday for the Israeli Navy after a bloody raid on a pro-Palestinian flotilla outside of Gaza, describing nine activists killed in the conflict as “innocent” and calling for an independent inquiry into the showdown.
Frank, in a wide-ranging interview with the Herald, went on to say that “as a Jew,” Israeli treatment of Arabs around some of the West Bank settlements “makes me ashamed that there would be Jews that would engage in that kind of victimization of a minority.”
The comments rankled some local Jewish leaders, who said activists on the largest vessel of the six-ship-flotilla sparked the deadly confrontation by attacking Israeli Naval commandos as they rappelled onto the ship
“They weren’t innocent at all, it’s pretty clear,” said Nancy K. Kaufman, executive director of the Jewish Community Relations Council in Boston. “There’s something called self-defense and (Israeli officials) have a right to use it. As usual, everyone’s jumping on Israel and blaming Israel"

I can't help but wonder why the establishment includes this man in its midst...,
and the media presumes we 'should know' what this man thinks.
I guess he is entitled to his opinion, but I can't shake the connection between this man, and his past.

Barney Frank calls for a probe every time he gets a couple of drinks in him. Hell, he was selling probes out of that townhouse he had in Boston that he turned into a whorehouse a few years ago.
Why anything he says is taken seriously is beyond me

Franks is the one that needs the probe!!! Then again it might be just what he's looking for!

Are you implying that he likes having objects placed in his rectum? I thought it was stereotyping to say that homosexuals liked anal probing.
